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 ...
Les Fables d'Ésope
(Club des Libraires de France, 1965)
The page after the title-page describes this lovely edition well: Les 308 fables ésopique dans une nouvelle Traduction par Jacques Lacarrière suivies d'un essai sur le symbolisme des fables, illustrées de dix miniatures ...
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 ...
Aesop's Fables: The Dog in a Manger
(Basil Blackwell, 1960)
This sixteen-page pamphlet seems to be in a series with The Wolf and the Dog, for which I had guessed a publication date of 1950. Both use Caxton's text. The telling of the fable is straightforward. The simple illustrations ...
The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1962)
It took me five years to find this book! A simple account with nice pictures, told traditionally up until the end where the miller saves his donkey from the river.
Use the AI at the back. Table of illustrations on 19. The illustrations have a simple charm, but I think that one of them is enough for a good illustrated lecture. Do not miss Tinkelman's dust jacket illustration up and ...
Aesop's Fables--lessons in living
This book is singular for giving not only a moral but an application in each instance. I would gather that it is also an example of eclecticism in the cranking out of Gift Books. Here we have two translators, two ...
(Lancer BooksMagnum Books, 1968)
I see only two things that justify the existence of this book: its slightly larger than average print (advertised as at least 30% larger) and the great question on its first page: Can you guess the moral? I am keeping ...
(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.
(The Spiral Press, 1964)
Nine fables listed in a beginning T of C: FG, The Ant and the Fly, The Bear and the Bees, The Lion and the Goat, WC, WL, The Daw with Borrowed Feathers, The Clock and the Dial, and FC. Printed on Goyu paper from the ...
