La Fontaine den Masallar
(Ahmet Halit Kitabevi, 1949)
Here are 116 pages of verse translations of La Fontaine into Turkish with thirty pictures. There is a T of C at the end. The book starts with a colorful cover picture of La Fontaine speaking with children in contemporary ...
Trilussa: Le Favole Fasciste: con Introduzione ed Illustrazioni
(Istituto Editoriale Giovanile, 1927)
This pamphlet is similar to another I have recorded one year earlier with the same title, but there from Istituto Editoriale rather than Istituto Editoriale Giovanile. The series is not I Romaneschi, as there, but rather ...
Trilussa: Cento Favole
(Oscar Mondadori, 1995)
This is a beautiful little paperback found in a break in the Renard Society's Congress in Turin. I have enjoyed Trilussa's fables before. A new favorite is quoted on the back cover, but appears and is illustrated on 159: ...
Slon I Mos'ka (Russian: Elephant and Pug-Dog)
(Publishing House 000 (Rus'), 2003)
This pamphlet opens with a surprise when we see an elephant marching among cars down a contemporary street. The next illustration underscores the contemporaneity of the scene when we see one man on the street in an Amstel ...
I.A. Krilov: Basni
(Shkolnaya BibliotekaSredne-Uralʹskoe knizhnoe izd-vo, 1979)
Here is a simple pamphlet without illustrations. It presents fifty-two fables on 48 pages, with a T of C at the back. This is about as basic a book as you can find!
Suomen Kansan Satuia (Finnish Fables)
(Sanomalehti Oy Nylandin Kirjapaino, 1946)
Here is a book I have come to possess because it was advertised as Finnish Fables. My suspicion from looking at the simple line-drawings is that these are more fairy tales than fables. At any rate, the book has 200 pages. ...
Strekoza I Muravey (Russian: Grasshopper and Ant)
(Publishing House 000 (Rus')Rusʹ, 2003)
This pamphlet does a strong job of anthropomorphizing the two main characters. The grasshopper has huge eyes. Is that some sort of beetle warning her among the brown leaves in the fall? The winter scene seems to present ...
La Fontaine Masallari
(Egitim YayinlariEğitim Yayınları, 1995)
This is one of the nicest Turkish fable books I have. Small in format (about 5 x 8), it contains 64 pages. There are good full-page colored illustrations of WL, CJ, BF, The Lion and the Mosquito, and GA. It also has two ...
Highlights for Children (magazine)
(Highlights for Children, 1994)
This edition of this magazine contains FC (25), retold (as was The Crow at the Well in 1992) by Jean K. Potratz. The telling is good and traditional; it makes effective use of a jar for the crane's offering. Highlights ...
Kalila und Dimna: Syrisch und Deutsch
(APA-Philo Press, 1911)
Here is a big fat treasure to work with the next time I teach Kalila and Dimna. A cursory glance through the German translation surprises me only in that there are no big surprises in the early material. That is, the ...
