Fables for the Little Ones
(Charles E. Graham & Co., 1910)
This lovely little booklet is connected with two curious events that happen in collections. First, it is the second copy I have found of this book. Eight years ago I found a copy in poor condition for $24. Its spine had ...
Fables for the Little Ones, Illustrated with Six Colored Pictures and Black and White Illustrations
(The Hayes Lithographic Co.The Hayes Lithographing Co., 1910)
The chromolithography here is excellent! I have seen these six colored illustrations in other books--perhaps larger and later? They are The Fox and the Hunters, The Two Fellows and the Bear, WL, FC, LS, and WC. Curiously, ...
Neuf Fables de la Fontaine
(Club du Livre Sélectionné, 1957)
I enjoy this work. The cover and frontispiece of this unstapled pamphlet show La Fontaine extending out from an oval portrait and offering a book of fables. The frontispiece notes that this copy was printed for Monsieur ...
La Fontaine: Fables

Junior Great Books, Series 4, Volume 1
(The Great Books Foundation, 1975)
Eighteen fables on 75-90 in Jacobs' version, not acknowledged. Then four fables from Thurber on 91-8. I find Thurber a surprising match for Aesop for these young readers. Using Jacobs as source means that a fable like ...
The ten books betray a heavy Protestant moralizing ethic. Each of the ten books has about six full-page illustrations in very good condition. Six verse fables make up the third book: LM, The Birds in Council (who want ...
Childcraft: The How and Why Library.
(Field Enterprieses Educational Corp.Field Enterprises Educational Corp., 1973)
Compare the five fables (76-84) here with those in the parallel 1964 edition. They occupy exactly the same pages, but two of the five fables have changed. BW and AD have replaced TMCM and FS. The held-over fables use ...
