A Type Specimen of Garamont: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Citation Press, 1973)
See my two other editions from Berliner, using Lutetia (1970) and Baskerville (1971). A first page gives a lovely little history of Garamont, which was first created in 1540, only eleven years after French printing first ...
The Boy and the Lion
(Ginn and Company, 1983)
This is a well-worn but sympathetic and engaging sixteen-page pamphlet with stiff covers. I love Biro's illustrations. The boy in this booklet is indeed a boy, vaguely African with a cap and a tattered long shirt that ...
Aesop's Fables: The Fox and the Grapes and Other Fables
(Paradise Press, Inc. By arrangement with Ottenheimer Publishers, Inc. ©1995, 1997 Ottenheimer Publishers, Inc., 1997)
The endpapers for all four volumes in this set contain the same four designs, one for each book's title-story. This volume contains FG, GA, DS, and WSC. This may be the first fox I have heard saying that the grapes are ...
The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1962)
It took me five years to find this book! A simple account with nice pictures, told traditionally up until the end where the miller saves his donkey from the river.
(Dover Publications, 1994)
I presume that the text is largely Rundell's. 92 fables with plentiful but simple illustrations. DS has the most obvious reflection-dog I have seen yet. MSA (19) has the donkey perched on the pole the way he is for ...
(David Campbell Publishers Ltd., 1992)
Identical with the adjacent book published as a Borzoi Book by Alfred A. Knopf. This British/European version is published by David Campbell and distrubted by Random House (UK) Ltd. Thus the only difference in the book ...
Lamb Chop's Fables: You Can Do It, Lamb Chop! Featuring Aesop's The Tortoise & The Hare
(Time-Life Custom Pub., 1994)
As with the other volume in the same series, a Lamb Chop puppet came along with this book. TH is narrated by Shari to a dejected Lamb Chop and her dog Huxley when Charley Horse and Hush Puppy will not let them play frisbee ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Revised Version From Original Sources.
(Hurst & Company, 1910?)
This book is done from the same plates as three others with the same title: from Allison in 1884, Worthington in 1887, and Phoenix in 1892. This edition has the dubious distinction of displaying two young men--a golfer ...
(Thomas Nelson & Sons Ltd., 1927?)
For a long time, I had thought this would be a book that would take hours to read because it is so thick. It turns out that it is only 96 pages long, with very thick paper. Orr's art work is very nice. I find three of ...
(The Spiral Press, 1964)
Nine fables listed in a beginning T of C: FG, The Ant and the Fly, The Bear and the Bees, The Lion and the Goat, WC, WL, The Daw with Borrowed Feathers, The Clock and the Dial, and FC. Printed on Goyu paper from the ...
