The Fables of Aesop: The American Prospectus.
(Editiones Officinae BodoniOfficinal Bodoni, 1973)
I doubt that I will ever have anything else from the Officina Bodoni in this collection! This eight-page brochure presents the edition by detailing who has worked on the texts and the illustrations. Texts include Latin ...
Aesop's Fables Coloring Book
(Dover Publications, 1972)
Valuable because of the nicely enlarged and clear Ulm drawings (1476).
Aisopou Mythoi Tettares: Four Fables of Aesop
(The Press in the Gatehouse, 1973)
Only four pages are used in this interlinear miniature 2 x 2¾. The interllinear translation is the literal kind very helpful to students. The four fables here treat of the fly who fell into a pot, FG, the old man and ...
Aesop In the Afternoon
(Citation Press, 1972)
A surprise find of a book I have sought for several years. Cullum presents the fables as dramas for teachers to use in less heady afternoon sessions of school. The fables, told traditionally, are divided according to the ...
Aesop's Fables: 30 Fables from Thomas Bewick's Works, Volume IV (Memorial Edition).
(Workshop of Letterio Calapai, 1973)

The Fables of Aesop

Die Fabels van Aesopus
(H.J.W. Becht, 1975)
This seems to be a Dutch version of The Fables of Aesop: 143 Moral Tales Retold. Lively art. As I mention in the account of the American book, the best of the illustrations are for WC (22-3) and MM (34-5). There is a ...
(Editorial AtlantidaEditorial Atlántida, 1972)
Simplicity and straightforwardness mark the versions and the two-color art in this kids' book.
(Hillside Press, 1974)
A nicely executed miniature, with some pen markings on the title page and elsewhere. Eight fables, each with an illustration. And Aesop is illustrated in the frontispiece. The illustrations are more original than ...
Stories from Aesop
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Compare this edition with the Uni-Phone Language Institute edition from Korea of 1982. This edition takes the same nine fables and their illustrations but adds color to the latter. See my notes there. Aesop never stands still!
