Stories from India

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 ...
One by One: A Child's Book of Tales and Fables, With Fifty Illustrations
(George Routledge and Sons, 1880?)
"This book is identical with another in the collection except that this cover is green cloth embossed with gold, while that book has a red cloth cover embossed with gold. Let me repeat what I wrote there. Here are ...
Truths and Fables (Cover: Truths, Fables, and Pictuers [sic])
(Wm. J. Reynolds and Co., 1848)

(Bertelsmann Club GmbHDeutschen Bücherbund, 1995)

Dix-Neuf Fables du Méchant Loup
(Castor Poche Flammarion, 1987)
