(Meadowside Children's Books, 2006)
This book is big and dramatic! It will appeal to children by its helpful introductions of the characters, e.g., A story about a not very nice hare and a pretty slow tortoise. I think one could best call the art primitive. ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
This lovely little book in fine condition is very close to the Townsend/Weir Three Hundred that I have put at 1885?/1895?, but there are several differences. Slightly smaller in its dimensions, this volume has a bright ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(G. Routledge and Sons Ltd.,George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
Closest to the McLoughlin (1885?) versions of the same title, this volume differs by its red cover with a girl holding a bird (Aesopic?), its four colored illustrations by Weir, and its excellent prints of the illustrations. ...
(George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1921)
Most similar in items like cover and title page to my Coker edition (1930) of Fry's work. This edition at last gives me a date with which to anchor the first edition of this book. Unfortunately three of the eight colored ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Clarion Books: Houghton Mifflin, 1971)
It is strange that I have gone all these years and never even known that there was a paperback of this lively little book. Galdone's work remains enjoyable.
Aesop's Fables: The Horse and the Donkey and other stories
(Dreamland Publications, 1997)
This is an 8½ x 11 presentation of seven fables. The Horse and the Donkey does not involve the loading onto the horse's back of either the dead donkey or his skin. Only his burdens are transferred. GA has for a moral: ...
Animal Fables from Aesop
(David R. Godine, 2000)
Here is a fine paperback version of the original 1991 hardbound version, also done by Godine. Let me repeat my comments there, except to say that I had complained about the hardback cost. Now the paperback cost is less ...
Aesop's Fables in English & Latin, Interlineary, for the Benefit of those who not having a Master, Would Learn Either of these Tongues
(A.and J. Churchil/Kessinger Publishing, 1703)
I closed my remark on my original copy of this book with this comment: I wonder why no one has ever reprinted this book. Here is my answer. This copy, manufactured at request, provides a good supplement to the original ...
Fables d'Esope en Quatraines dont Il y en a une Partie au Labyrinthe de Versailles
(Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy/Kessinger Publishing, 1678)
One learns from Wikipedia that André Le Nôtre initially planned a maze of unadorned paths in 1665, but in 1669, Charles Perrault advised Louis XIV to include thirty-nine hydraulic fountains each representing one of the ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version Chiefly from the Original Sources
(John Murray, 1867)
Here is another copy of the book first published in 1867. This copy is covered in blue cloth, but with a beautiful golden illustration with title and author embedded in the front cover. As I remark elsewhere, Tenniel's ...
