More Fables of Aesop
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1974)
The sequel to the earlier Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop (1972). Just a wonderful book! Almost every story and illustration could be well used in a lecture. My favorite is The Cat and Venus. There is real wit in the ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952?)
This book is the same as the previous book, except that the pictures are all done in black-and-white. This book has the rare distinction of separating the two pages of T of C to put in between a page containing only ...
(Avenel Books: Crown Publishing Co., 1912)
T of C and list of illustrations. Many fables! The T of C goes on at length! The black-and-white illustrations are well done, but the colored are not well presented here. They look a bit drab.
A nice source. Do not miss the index of illustrations at the back. The text seems to be exactly the same as Hausrath and Perry.
Aesop's Fables (Well Loved Tales)
(Book Essentials, 1975?)
A good example of mostly bad art, bad tellings, and even bad orthography. The best of the tales might be The King of the Animals. An example of a story poorly told is The Wild Goats.
Ésope: Le Renard Qui Avait la Queue Coupée et Autres Fables.
(Enfantimages: Éditions Gallimard, 1857)
Beautifully reproduced colored pictures of seventeen fables from Bennett. The color work may be superior to that in editions from this country. The clever cover-picture is not included inside the book. The Wolf in the ...
The Caldecott Aesop
Lovely stuff, though the pictures are sometimes so bound to the contemporary social and political setting that it is hard for us to see the point. DLS is particularly good, with a skillful modern instance. Valuable ...
[Korean] Sun and Wind
(Bum WooP*omusa, 1987)
A pleasing simple book of the above four fables and TB. This book seems typical of recent Korean work, for it is both colorful and vivid. The echoes are particularly good, e.g., that of the fellow diving into the ...
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979?)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...
Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
This lovely reproduction in exaggerated portrait format (4¾ x 8½) is a mystery to me. It presents very traditional rectangular illustrations, one for each of the 117 fables. They seem to be signed by I Raymond. But I ...
