Peace Tales: World Folktales to Talk About
(Linnet Books: The Shoe String Press, Inc., 1992)
"This book works for peacemaking by telling stories and asking readers to think and talk about them. There is probably something fable-like in each of the 37 stories. I notice eight that are more properly fables. They ...
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 ...
19 fables de singes
(Castor Poche Flammarion, 1992)
I had already had a larger and thinner copy of this paperback book with a 1998 copyright. I figured that this was simply an earlier version. Upon closer inspection, I find that the texts are the same, but that the same ...
The Golden Book of Storytime Tales
(Golden Press, 1962)
Among some forty stories offered in this well-used large-format book are several fables: The Wonderful Tar-Baby adapted from the original story by Joel Chandler Harris; GA (60); BC (89); and FG (147). FG has a strong ...
Wie das Kamel seinen Buckel bekam: Vorlesegeschichten von Boccaccio bis Biermann
(Verlag Neues Leben, 1991)
This book is a pleasant, creative surprise. It contains all sorts of stories for parents to read to children. That there are fifty-three seems no accident: one a week can take a listener through a whole year. After Liest ...
Affengeplapper: 100 der schönsten Fabeln aus aller Welt
(Otto Maier Verlag, 1972)
This is an expanded edition of a book that appeared first from the Georg Bitter Verlag, Recklinghausen, under the title Ein Fuchs fährt nach America. This simple paperback collection identifies its one hundred fables by ...
Faules I Moralitats
(Editorial Balmes, 1959)
Much about this book will remain a mystery to me, I suspect. It seems to be a collection of twenty-five fables in Catalan verse. A first surprise to me is that it has both an imprimatur and a nihil obstat. Generally, ...
Lehren der Weisheit und Tugend in auserlesenen Fabeln, Erzählungen und Liedern: Ein Buch für die Jugend
(In der J.J. Mäcken'schen Buchhandlung, 1817)
Someone must have found some very useful material in this book, since it went through ten editions! It is organized into three major sections. The first has five subsections: Activity and Industriousness; Moderation and ...
My Book of Fairy Tales and Fables
(Brown Watson, 1978?)
Identical with a softbound version with ID #606 that is printed in Czechoslovakia, while this edition is printed in Romania. Wonders never cease! See my comments there
Fiabe di La Fontaine
(Editrice AMZ, 1960)
This book largely reproduces, in both verbatim texts and exactly the same illustrations, Favole di animali: Fiabe di la Fontaine, Fedro e Esopo by the same publisher, which I have listed under 1960/80. See my comments ...
