Fables, For the Instruction and Amusement of Little Misses and Masters: Beauties of Fables.
(Toronto Public Library, 1991)
A ten-page handout of ninety-one listings. I am sorry I missed the show and did not even know of it. How nice of Kathleen to think of me and send the catalogue! One can find further information on most of the individual ...
(The Heritage Illustrated Bookshelf (The Heritage Press), 1941)
Almost identical with the Heritage Reprints edition. I presume now that this edition is actually a pre-war edition antedating that one. The chief distinguishing marks are a change from red here to brown there in the ...
The Children's Aesop
(Caroline House/Boyds Mills Press, 1992)
Well done! Twenty-eight fables generally given two pages apiece for the tale and the picture, with a moral clearly boxed in a different color at the end. Well told, especially for children, with morals that make sense, ...
(Alfred A. KnopfDistributed by Random House, 1992)
I have wanted a Gooden Aesop since I found his La Fontaine edition (1931) four months ago. This book does not seem to mention Gooden's 1936 limited edition of 525 copies done by George Harrap using L'Estrange's version. ...
(Lothrop Publishing Company, 1901)
I am very happy to get a copy of Rundell's version, quoted by Hobbs on 102. The Griset illustrations are well done here. Still, this book's special offering lies in the four full-color illustrations. These often render ...
Little Tales from Aesop
(Bairns Books Ltd., 1950)
This is a large sixteen-page landscape-formatted pamphlet with various kinds of illustrations for its thirteen fables. The most exciting are the full-page colored illustrations for FS (front cover), DLS, The Cat and the ...
Aesop's Fables #3
(Fantagraphics Books, 1991)
A weird and wonderful comic book experience. Seven fables are told with many twists not in earlier versions. The Two Mistresses is really about two-timing. The women both refuse a kiss and eventually collaborate on ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Old Man and Death.
(The Good Book Press, 1986)
A beautifully made little book that tells this Aesopic story very well. The size seems to me to work against the two cuts. There is an exquisite design of hatchet and wood on the cover. For other work by Peter and Donna ...
The Best of Aesop's Fables
(Joy Street Books Little, Brown and Co.,, 1990)
A pleasing and tasteful book. The versions are brief and often leave the last phase to the reader; there are no morals. The illustrations are in a contemporary New Yorker cartoon style. LM is different and good: simple ...
Le meunier, son fils, et l'ane
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1962)
Identical and simultaneous with The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey from the same artist and publisher. Here is a book whose existence I never suspected!
