The Father, his Son and their Donkey/Hermes and the Wood-cutter/The Rich Man and his Servant.
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Nice changes inculturate these fables: Ibrahim and Ali are given native skin and clothing. Hermes becomes the god of a river. The servant and the rich man con each other.
The Fox and the Crow and 10 Other Tales.
(Reader's Digest Services, 1976)
This book omits without comment the last two fables from Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop (1972). Kent is very witty here, as he is in the 1974 sequel. The Gnat and the Bull, FG, and OF are my favorites here. The watercolors ...

[Korean] Sun and Wind

The Fables of Aesop
(Macmillan Company, 1894)
The special value of this reprinting of Jacobs' work lies in the dust-jacket, which is in fair to good condition. It reproduces the garishly colored frontispiece found in the many reprints that Macmillan did of the ...
