Mís fábulas favorítas
"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 ...
Fábulas: Esopo, Fedro, Iriarte, Samaniego y Hartzenbusch
(Editorial Andrés Bello, 1983)
"The introduction is well titled "Cinco Fabulistas." I think I could understand immediately choosing the latter three. They are prominent Spanish language fabulists. Why take only Aesop and Phaedrus from the classic ...
Casper the Friendly Ghost: Far-Out Fables
(Tempo Books: Grosset and Dunlap, 1981)
"As I fully expected, this paperback book has nothing to do with Aesopic fables. It contains standard Casper cartoon stories. I read the first, "Every Litter Bit Helps." It is rather a full story, lasting 42 pages. In ...
El Cuervo y la Zorra
(Ediciones A. Saldaña, 1999)
"Once again, things come together from different times and places. In Salamanca in 1986, I found a simple pop-up from a publisher I did not know. Sixteen years later I found a French die-cut presentation of LM done by ...
Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...
Fables in Verse
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)
"Twenty-six years ago I bought a first copy of this book at Renaissance in Milwaukee. Here is a second copy in poorer condition. It has the same printer's error listed below. I keep it in the collection because it is a ...
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 ...
The Fables of Aesop
(View Productions, Pty Ltd., 1985)
"There was a spate of reprintings of Detmold's "The Fables of Aesop" about the time that copyright on his 1909 edition ran out. This has a larger page format than those others, and it does not paste in his colorful ...
Aesop in the Courts, Volume II
(Law-Arts Publishers, Inc., 1971)
See Volume I under 1971. The stories here seem slightly longer. The three I read are fun.
À table avec Jean de La Fontaine: 55 recettes fabuleuses et morales de nos campagnes
(Agnes Vienot Editions, 2012)
This was a lucky find on my first afternoon in Paris. I seldom bother these days with new book stores. It was even less likely this day, when I had Gibert Jeune and similar bookstores at hand. I stopped in and asked ...
