The Lion and the Mouse.
The same book as the edition of 1979 but with a slightly different spine and title page. The illustrations here may be a bit darker. See my comments on the original.
Aesop's Fables for the Table: Aesop's Cookbook
(Broward Community College Association of Educational Secretaries and Office Personnel, 1979)
Here is a curiosity! This is a regular cookbook, but it has sections, and the heavier paper-stock divider at the beginning of each section has a line drawing of an animal cooking and, on its verso, the text of an Aesopic ...
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Kaewon Publishing Co.Kyew¿¿n Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1979)
The versions have some nice language goofs and seem well done. A lovely gift. Compare the new book of the same title published by Choun in 1980/88.
Once in a Wood: Ten Tales from Aesop
(Greenwillow BooksGreenwillow Read-alone Books: a Division of William Morrow and Co., 1979)
A lovely little book I first found at the Milwaukee Public Library. Several black-and-white drawings per story, many of them very well done and lively. The stories are told in very simple fashion.
The Lion and the Mouse.
(Ernest Benn, 1979)
Delightful single-frame pictures. I would love to use one or two of them if I get a chance to present the story. This book presents a different moral from most for this fable: a change in circumstance makes the strong ...
(Octopus Books, 1979)
Nice huge reproductions of Bewick with the center of the action highlighted in a second color. The coloring-in of Doré's work somehow softens it. The color graphics are distinctive but not entirely successful.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse.
(Troll Associates, 1979)
Cute but simple figures. Many of the drawings lack color and definition.
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 1
(Polytechnic Education Ltd.Samnakphim Phī. Ēt., 1979)
A strange little booklet. The first nine stories are vintage Aesop, finishing with a boxed moral in English and illustrated by (xeroxed?) polychrome and monochrome work of Robert Ayton in his small Ladybird editions of ...
Wie die Maus den Loewen rettete
(Artemis Verlag, 1979)
Very well done, with beautiful detailed illustrations. A good example of contemporary work with a single fable (and in another language).
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...
