"Here is a large-format stapled pamphlet of 24 pages that spent too long in a musty basement. It presents some heavy handed themes for little readers? TH is pictured in flowerchild fashion on the cover, with bugs and ...
Truths and Fables (Cover: Truths, Fables, and Pictuers [sic])
(Wm. J. Reynolds and Co., 1848)
"Here is a curious melange that starts with a misspelling on the front cover! Next, after one endpaper, follows a title-page "Truths and Fables" with the words framed by eight medallions of typical family scenes. At the ...
Fun with Folktales

Here is an extra copy of this booklet. The last five pages of this thirty-two-page pamphlet are given to describing fables, presenting one (SW, told in the incorrect version) and recommending others for puppet shows.
My Book of Fairy Tales and Fables
(Brown Watson, 1978)
Here is an extra copy of this book. Two fables among the twenty-three stories here. The hare and the tortoise (77) first talk of a race to the end of the world, but settle on a nearby tree trunk as a goal. The hare ...

Hesitant Wolf and Scrupulous Fox: Fables Selected from World Literature.
(Random House, 1973)
Here is an extra copy of the first edition in a dust-jacket. Identical with the 1983 paperback I had earlier, though from a different publisher. A wonderful collection including some surprises like John Lennon. The dozen ...

Here is a second copy of this book. Fifteen fables among forty-five stories, each two pages long with lively illustrations. The fables show some surprises and soft endings. The eagle drops the turtle and then catches ...
The Fairy Tale Treasury
Here is an extra copy of this book. I would not have bought this book except for the excellent illustrations for its two Aesop stories: SW (magnificent black lines radiating from a white spot) and MSA. The illustrations ...
