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 ...
The Golden Axe
(Foreign Languages Press, 1981)
Here is an extra copy, purchased from the same source at the same time. A beautifully illustrated large pamphlet. This seems to be the familiar Western story with the following changes: (1) The main characters are an ...
Harry and Shellburt
Here is an extra copy of this book with some markings on the endpapers. A delightful little book heavy on greens for watching and for eating. This is second generation Aesop: the original tale is told and then re-enacted ...
The Grasshopper and the Ants
(Walt Disney ProductionsWestern Publishing Company, 1968)
This booklet-plus-record from Valencia Street in San Francisco is tantalizingly similar to one already in the collection, found at Old Bank Antiques in Hastings nineteen years ago. Let me catalogue the differences. The ...
Country Mouse, City Mouse
(Random House, 1978)
Here is an extra copy with a dirty cover. A cute Disney version that strings the tale to some length. It dresses the mice, gives them names and even a mouse car that screeches around bigger cars. This version departs ...
Toby Tortoise and the Hare
(Walt Disney Enterprises, 1938)
I am glad at last to have some original Disney fable work. The presentation is surprising. It assumes the race. During it, Max shows off for the little-girl rabbits at Miss Cottontail's Boarding School. (They can be ...
The Country Mouse and the City Mouse
(Alfred A. Knopf, 1987)
Charming watercolors, including the title page (getting and receiving an invitation) and back cover (mouse coachmen resting). In fact, the coachmen are a charming part of several of the illustrations.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
Here is an extra copy without a dust-jacket. A beautiful book. The text is indeed after Dodsley, who presents this story as I, 30 The Court and Country-Mouse. This version changes Dodsley's female country mouse into a ...
The Boy Who Cried Wolf
(Scholastic, Inc., 1975)
Here is an extra copy of this booklet. There are two Easter eggs pasted on 30 of the good copy, and there is some water staining on the older extra, but this is a delightful pamphlet. The fable is well told. Tom fools ...
The Wind and the Sun
(North-South Books, 1992)
Here is the second of two extra copies of this book. Very pleasing art to present a cogent story. Among the best illustrations is the first for the wind's storm. The sun itself announces the moral in proclaiming victory ...
