Selections from Aesop's Fables Illustrated with Reproductions of Fifteenth Century Woodcuts
(A. Colish, 1988)
This is perhaps an unusual fine edition in that it does not tell where its publisher has his press. The texts of the forty-nine fables seem to be based, at least in part, on James' version of the fables. There are some ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Man and the Lion
(The Good Book Press, 1981)
Here is another lovely mini-book from the Good Book Press of Peter and Donna Thomas. I already have their The Old Man and Death from 1986. The present volume came along with The Miser from 1982. There are two linoleum ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Miser
(The Good Book Press, 1982)
Here is another lovely mini-book from the Good Book Press of Peter and Donna Thomas. I already have their The Old Man and Death from 1986. The present volume came along with The Man and the Lion from 1981. There are two ...
Aesop's Fables Coloring Album
(Troubador Press: Price/Stern/Sloan, 1986)
This is a later reprinting of Troubador's 1982 coloring album, with about fifteen splendiferous psychedelic pictures to color in. As I mention there, generally the art has lost sight of the story. Troubador found a new ...
(Joshua Morris, 1985)
Originally published in England by Deans International Publishing. This large-format book features lively, colorful, sentimental illustrations for its eighteen fables. A typical illustration is that of the wide-eyed lion ...
A Kaleidoscope of Fairies & Fables
See the 1983 Aesop's Fables done by the same people and published by Silver Burdett. Silver Burdett had the book then from Hamlyn, who had the copyright. Here Hamlyn cleverly uses the same materials again, as they had ...
Famous Stories from Aesop's & Panchatantra
(Dhingra Publishing House, 1980)
This is a strange book. The English and the bookbinding are equally suspect. Strange phrases and typos appear, even as signatures separate from each other. The Foreword has a fragment in its first paragraph. So it is ...
El Gallo, la Zorra y el Perro: Fábula de Esopo
(La Galera, S.A. Editorial, 1981)
Here is a bright, clean book with hard covers telling the UP story. The artist does fine work with the animals' faces here. The fox's early grins are excellent! The dog really does come in this version. There are ...
El Leon y el Raton
(Troll Associates, 1981)
See my comments on the English version. I feared after bidding on this booklet that I was purchasing something I already had. Surprise! I was right, but it was in a different language.
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Troll Associates, 1981)
I have had this book for twenty-three years, but there was a new addition in this eBay advertisement: story cards for a literary center. I was curious. The book remains the same, and I will include my earlier remarks on ...
