[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 1
(Polytechnic Education Ltd.Samnakphim Phī. Ēt., 1979)
A strange little booklet. The first nine stories are vintage Aesop, finishing with a boxed moral in English and illustrated by (xeroxed?) polychrome and monochrome work of Robert Ayton in his small Ladybird editions of ...
Bewick's Select Fables of Aesop and Others
(1784: T. Saint/1878: Longmans, Green, 1776)
Lovely, if sometimes simple, wood engravings. The best may be TT and DS. This is apparently an early work of Bewick's, not to be confused with the classic 1818 edition. Tripartite AI at the back.
Child's Own Fable Book
(Leavitt and Allen, 1860)
This fat little book includes two parts: Aesop's Fables (I) and Fables (II). It is an earlier (even first?) edition of a work I had found earlier and have listed under 1870? This work, like that, will delight those ...
Child's Own Fable Book
(Leavitt & Allen, 1870)
This fat little book will delight those tracking fable publication. A frontispiece from Weir introduces a book with Thomas James' 1848 introduction placed (Theddington Vicarage) but not signed. James' 203 fables in I ...
Aesop's Fables/Greek Myths/Bible Stories.
(Si-Sa-Mun-Hwa-SaSisa Munhwasa, 1978)
Ten fables with Korean footnotes, many with clever Checkup exercises at the bottom of the page. The tellings and the art are both traditional, apparently borrowed from a standard source (not Jacobs). The illustration ...
Fábulas de Esopo/Vida de Esopo/Fábulas de Babrio.
(Editorial Gredos, 1978)
My first Spanish find, on my first day in Madrid. My guess is that the Spanish translations are accurate and careful. Sixteen illustrations, most from the Zaragossa Ysopet; they seem to be identical with the Ulm woodcuts. ...
Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists. In Three Books
(John Baskervilleprinted by John Baskervlle [sic] for R. and J. Dodsley,, 1764)
This book is a delightful anomaly. It stands directly between my first edition Dodsley from 1761 and my second edition Dodsley from 1764, which lacks the medallion illustrations. This copy is marked 1764 on the title-page ...
Las Fábulas de Esopo con las de Samaniego y de Iriarte.
(Libraria de J. y A. BastinosLibreria de Juan y Antonio Bastinos, 1875)
This little book of 316 fables is fascinating for its selection of fables to include from its three fabulists. As far as I can tell from the prologue, it leaves out some of Aesop's fables as unsuitable for cultivated ...
Fables in Verse Inspired by Aesop and La Fontaine
(Writers Club PressiUniverse.com Inc.,, 2000)
The author's preface is quite straightforward. He wants to present his own version of already famous fables. He wants to convey them in a manner that is enjoyable and at times humorous. He hopes readers will enjoy his ...
Tesoro de Fábulas: Esopo, La Fontaine, Samaniego, Iriarte y Otros

As the T of C at the back shows, this paperback includes thirty fables from Aesop, eight from the Panchatantra, three from Phaedrus, thirty-two from La Fontaine, fourteen from Samaniego, twenty from Iriarte, six from ...
