Fábulas: Esopo, Fedro, Iriarte, Samaniego y Hartzenbusch
(Editorial Andrés Bello, 1983)

Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(The World Publishing Co., 1910)
"There is already a copy of this book in the collection, found in 1992. Now some 33 years later, I have found a copy in better condition with a dust jacket. It is hard to believe that the book was printed as early as ...
El Cuervo y la Zorra
(Ediciones A. Saldaña, 1999)

Twice Upon a Time
(Moody Press, 1971)
Here is an extra copy of this book in very good condition. In his introduction, McCall spells out the purpose and intent of this book, that the familiar fables of Aesop might be used as introductions to passages in the ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
Here is the first of three extra copies of this book. Lively and expressive watercolors for these three well-known fables: FG, FS, and FC. I like best the facial expressions in the stork story.
