The Hunter, the Fox, and the Tiger (Cover: A Fable)
(Published & Printed by McGraw-Phillips, 1970)
I presume that this was an advertising gift from McGraw-Phillips. It is a clever little booklet 5¼ x 6¼ and 16 pages long. The cleverness starts on the cover, which shows three intersecting tracks and labels them vulpes ...
Corpus Fabularum Aesopicarum.
(Teubner BSB, 1970)
This book apparently includes the addenda and corrigenda of Haas appended in the 1957 edition, which this edition revises (see my comments there). There is an Ordo Fabularum beginning on XXXIII. This fascicle contains ...

A Type Specimen of Lutetia: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, Printer, 1970)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically Lutetia 12D Roman and Italic, 14D Roman and Italic, and 16D Roman.. Good woodblock illustrations ...
