Fabeln des Aesop
(Otto Maier Verlag, 1966)
Here is the German version of the book written by Louis Untermeyer and published by Golden Press a year earlier in the USA. This version follows the original down to the pagination of each fable. As I write there, this ...
(Junior Deluxe Editions, 1968)
The same material one finds in the standard Doubleday editions (1968) with the exception of Singer's introduction and the AI at the back. The print is larger, the order of fables is rearranged, and there seem to be fewer of them.
(C. R. Gibson Co., 1968)
Delightful both in its verse and its drawings. Worth looking over for something that can be used. The text and the drawings are well integrated. The texts have some spice. The hare ends up holding up the fox reaching ...
(Ward Lock & Co. Limited, 1964)
I have known and enjoyed Nickless' work before in The Book of Fables (1962/63), and I find it highly enjoyable here. It may be that some or all of the art from there repeats here. This is a 92-page book that averages ...
Favole di Esopo
(Arnoldo Mondadori Editore, 1965)
A really clever and delightful book, which uses graphics of all sorts in the margins to enjoy what is being related. Full-spread colored pages alternate with black-and-white texts and simple drawings. I could use a number ...
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 Lion and the Mouse
(Rand McNally & Company, 1968)
The expanded story has some unusual twists: Mr. Lion is the father of a family, as the mouse is a mother. The lion does not sleep or threaten to eat the mouse. The lion laughs to learn that the mouse has babies. The ...
Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
This lovely reproduction in exaggerated portrait format (4¾ x 8½) is a mystery to me. It presents very traditional rectangular illustrations, one for each of the 117 fables. They seem to be signed by I Raymond. But I ...
Aesop's Fables Translated from the Greek
Here is a curious and wonderful find! It has the marks of a limited edition but offers no recognition of the twenty texts' translator or of the artist who did the eight strong woodcuts (?) pasted onto interlaid heavier ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
I have been searching for this book for years. It is a lucky find on a day when I should have been flying to Tokyo! The green, yellow, and brown art is only okay. In contempt, the hare decides to have a nap. The moral ...
