Fables without--Facts within
(Tillmann & Bendel, 1910)
I wondered for some time whether this little four-page, one-staple, two-story, two-picture, one-fable pamphlet belongs among the books or in the advertising section. The first story is The Bird-Catcher and the Serpent ...
Das Schönste Fabelbuch für Brave Kinder: Eine Auswahl aus Deutschlands Fabelschatz
(Druck und Verlag von Rob. Bardtenschlager, 1915)
Here is a book that invites comparison with a paperbound version bearing the same title from the same publisher. They have the same picture on their front covers and they present the same fables. This hardbound version ...
Twenty Four Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists.
(Ernest Benn, 1928)
Here is an extra copy of this book. Identical after the title page with the Dutton edition printed in England (1928?). Most of the illustrations are taken from Gheeraerts' edition from Bruges of 1567 (the three others ...
The Big Book of Fables
(Portland House, 1987)
Here is a second extra copy of this book with a dust-jacket. I find nothing to indicate that the illustrations come from fifty years ago, which would have been my suspicion. Witty line-drawings, some silhouettes, and ...
Drollige Thierbilder und Reime aus der Fabelwelt
(Insel Verlag, 1850)
Here is an extra copy of this book. Beautifully colored reprint with witty little rhymes including lots of fables I recognize (and some I may not yet). The Blind and the Lame features the snail and the mole (1). Other ...
(Frank Graham Publishers, 1820)
Here is an extra copy of this book. In 1776, Bewick did indifferent woodcuts for an edition of Select Fables. In 1784, T. Saint published a new book by the same name with new woodcuts by T. and John Bewick. In 1820 ...
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895)
Here is another Donohue surprise-a book, like Jack and Jill (1895?) that contains only the title-story and fables. This book has the same cover border, the same back cover, and the same Mother Goose endpapers as that book. ...
Big Book Magazine: Fables
This may be the largest book I have. Its authors include Tom Paxton (CP), Verna Aardema (The Hen and the Dove), and James Thurber (TH). Also included are The Fox and the Goat, BC, a traditional version of TH, and WS (in ...
El Maravilloso Mundo de las Fábulas (Tomo 2)
(Editorial Alfredo Ortells, 1999)
This oversized hardbound volume picks right up where the first volume left off, which appeared in 1984. Times change! In 1986, I bought the first volume for one-third the price of this book. The style of the art is the ...
Famous Fables in Modern Verse
(Nelson and Sons, 1920)
Good graphics for the fifteen fables in a nice small book.
