(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 ...
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!
(Peter Pauper Press, 1941)
Peter Pauper Press has used virtually the same translation for three different editions. Bewick's is also dated 1941. Carle's adds two later copyright dates. The Bewick translation is the fullest, to judge from The ...
A Sample of Aesop
(Bertram RotaBetram Rota, 1993)
The introduction to this twelve-page booklet offers the touching story of a very poor family in the 1920's, when mother Helen and son Rex collaborated on a book of two fables. Here, sixty years later, the booklet sees the ...
The Hunter, the Fox, and the Tiger (Cover: A Fable)
(Published & Printed by McGraw-Phillips, 1970?)
I presume that this was an advertising gift from McGraw-Phillips. It is a clever little booklet 5¼ x 6¼ and 16 pages long. The cleverness starts on the cover, which shows three intersecting tracks and labels them vulpes ...
(Uitg. ElectaUitgeverij Electa, 1950)
The bulk of this book is a set of 150 Aesopic fables done into Dutch verse. The fables are divided into these subsets: stories from mythology, animals (alone or with people), humans (alone or with gods), nature, and ...
(Adam & Charles Black, 1912)
This edition has a dust jacket but seems otherwise to reproduce my 1950 reprinting of the 1912 original. The colored illustrations are particularly well done here. This is what I wrote on that 1950 reprinting: It reduces ...
Aesop's Fables Illustrated.
(World Library Guild, 1910?)
This well-worn book is close to several editions already in the collection. They are titled Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated and printed, as is this edition, by the Commercial Bookbinding Company of Cleveland. Both ...
The Aesop for Children
(Rand McNally, 1919)
Only the cover material is different than it is in the 1962 reprint. Edition of 1951 stands here on the title-page where Edition of 1962 stands there. See my comments there. It becomes more and more difficult to number ...
