A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
The Fables of Aesop and La Fontaine (Hebrew)
(Fratelli Fabbri EditoriMasadah, 1994)
Here an oversized (9¼ x 13) paperbound version of nineteen of La Fontaine's fables with the delightful art work of Cremonini very well rendered. As in earlier English version from 1958 (The Fables of Aesop and La Fontaine) ...
Le Liévre [sic] et la Tortuë Mis en Fable par Différens Auteurs
(en l'École Municipale Estienne, 1914)
Before writing anything else, I must point out what seems to me a major mistake in this student book. The first four presentations of Lièvre get the accent wrong! Those presentations are on the cover, on the first and ...
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.
Las Mejores Fábulas: Esopo, Jean de la Fontaine, Tomás de Iriarte, Félix María de Samaniego
(Edimat Libros, S.A., 2006)
This is a serious hardbound book of some 309 pages. It contains many texts and no illustrations. The T of C at the back gives the basic organization but with one glaring error. The organization is by author. The book ...
The Fables of Aesop (Cover and spine: Aesop's Fables)
(Albert Whitman, 1925)
Here is a singular find. I had never seen this book before, and I cannot find it mentioned in Hobbs, Quinnam, or Lindseth. I checked for a formulaic text adapted from LaFontaine and Croxall identified as this book's ...
