Little Folk's Fables from Aesop
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1940)
At last, I have a good, clean copy of this curious little book, which spells its title three different ways: I use here the correct version on the cover rather than the interior title's Folks' or the title page's Folks. ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Edmund S. WoodMinia Press, 1943)
Lovely old--but rather fragile and beaten--miniature about an inch square. Several Heighway drawings are pirated in besides the approximately twenty drawings from Bennett.
(The Heritage Press, 1941)
This lovely book often brings high prices. Most of the illustrations are brown on white. Some add a golden background. A few show good wit. I would like to include one or two in a slide lecture. Having just worked ...
(The Heritage Reprints, 1941)
Check the inside of the dust jacket to see the Reprints marking that sets off this edition from the Heritage Illustrated Bookshelf edition, along with the brown cover here and the notation of wartime regulations on the ...
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1947)
Simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several colored pages besides a number of black-and-whites. The tellings of the tales may be most helpful for the clear morals. Let me say more here about the various ...
Aesop's Fables for Modern Readers
(Peter Pauper Press, 1941)

Den Lille Aesop: 59 af de gamle Dyrefabler
How nice to find, nine years later, the original of which my two English versions, hardbound and paperback, were the later translation. They are listed under 1961. This 1945 Danish original version even contains the ...
(Peter Pauper Press, 1941)
Peter Pauper Press has used virtually the same translation for three different editions. Bewick's is also dated 1941. Carle's adds two later copyright dates. The Bewick translation is the fullest, to judge from The ...
Der Wettlauf zwischen dem Igel und dem Hasen auf der kleinen Heide bei Buxtehude
(Hermann Hübener Verlag, 1947)
Is this famous story of the race between the hare and the hedgehog a fable? I admit that the charm of this booklet made me say yes for now, at least to including the booklet in the collection. This is hedgehog life as ...
(The Heritage Illustrated Bookshelf (The Heritage Press), 1941)
Almost identical with the Heritage Reprints edition. I presume now that this edition is actually a pre-war edition antedating that one. The chief distinguishing marks are a change from red here to brown there in the ...
