Promenade au Jardin des Fables
(Braun & Cie/Berger-LevraultBraun Berger-Levrault,, 1923)
One of the heavier and more pretentious books in the collection. The book seems to me to represent a kind of printer's dream, drawing in all sorts of illustrations. I have listed Berger-Levrault as a publisher, but they ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1905)
I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to ...
The Fables of Aesop and La Fontaine.
(Duell, Sloan and Pearce, affiliate of Meredith Press, 1958)
A wonderful find sitting out on the table waiting for me! Excellent condition. Nineteen fables with witty and exuberant watercolors, many featuring cute insects having fun around the central action. The best illustration ...
Favole di animali: Fiabe di la Fontaine, Fedro e Esopo.
(AMZ Editrice, 1960)
Colorful and often useful pictures. I like the one of the ant giving hell to the grasshopper. Good faces too on the fox with and moving away from the grapes. Style is simple but colorful, and the cut of the pictures ...
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.

What a wonderful little treasure. The first book has a frontispiece of Aesop holding a scroll sitting in the countryside surrounded by animals. 140 fables, most with rectangular little illustrations reminiscent of Croxall. ...
Fables des animaux: d'Esope à La Fontaine
(Editions Lito, 1962)
Copyright Editions AMZ Milan. The page before the title-page reads Le Grand Livre des Fables. Is that a series to which this book might belong? This is my fifth book using Bodini's illustrations. It is the largest and ...

Choix de Fables d'Ésope
(Librairie Classique Eugène BelinLibrairie Classique d'Eugène Belin, 1882)
Here is a handy little volume from the late nineteenth century in Paris. First there are forty fables in Greek, each with an epimythium and plenty of footnotes. After that come forty fables of La Fontaine that imitate ...
Merveilleuses Fables de La Fontaine
(Henri Veyrier, 1991)
This may be the first time that I am aware of in which the bookseller was also the publisher! Beurtheret's numerous full-page illustrations are all signed in 1990. They are done in crayon or chalk or some other form of ...
