Choix de Fables d'Ésope
(Librairie Classique Eugène BelinLibrairie Classique d'Eugène Belin, 1882)

Merveilleuses Fables de La Fontaine
(Henri Veyrier, 1991)

The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1905)

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.
Fables in Verse Inspired by Aesop and La Fontaine
