(Fratelli Fabbri EditoriMasadah, 1994)
Here an oversized (9¼ x 13) paperbound version of nineteen of La Fontaine's fables with the delightful art work of Cremonini very well rendered. As in earlier English version from 1958 (The Fables of Aesop and La Fontaine) ...
Le Liévre [sic] et la Tortuë Mis en Fable par Différens Auteurs
(en l'École Municipale Estienne, 1914)
Before writing anything else, I must point out what seems to me a major mistake in this student book. The first four presentations of Lièvre get the accent wrong! Those presentations are on the cover, on the first and ...
The Fables of Aesop (Cover and spine: Aesop's Fables)
(Albert Whitman, 1925)
Here is a third printing of this unusual book. Its cover is tan cloth. As I mentioned about the first printing, here is a singular find. I had never seen this book before, and I cannot find it mentioned in Hobbs, Quinnam, ...
(J.H. Sears & Company, 1920)
This little book brims with questions. First, do I not recognize these covers of a boy and girl, respectively, reading? Next, how does this text expand the usual set of texts derived from Rundell (sometimes labelled ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Co., 1904)
This copy of Stickney's book is a duplicate of the 1904 Ginn edition, with three exceptions that I can find. First, Ginn is located now in Boston, New York, Chicago, and London. Secondly, this copy is not dated. Thirdly, ...

Favole di animali: Fiabe di la Fontaine, Fedro e Esopo.
(AMZ Editrice, 1960)
Colorful and often useful pictures. I like the one of the ant giving hell to the grasshopper. Good faces too on the fox with and moving away from the grapes. Style is simple but colorful, and the cut of the pictures ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1905)
I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to ...
Las Mejores Fábulas: Esopo, Jean de la Fontaine, Tomás de Iriarte, Félix María de Samaniego
(Edimat Libros, S.A., 2006)
