Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(The World Publishing Co., 1910)
"There is already a copy of this book in the collection, found in 1992. Now some 33 years later, I have found a copy in better condition with a dust jacket. It is hard to believe that the book was printed as early as ...
The Fables of Aesop
(View Productions, Pty Ltd., 1985)
"There was a spate of reprintings of Detmold's "The Fables of Aesop" about the time that copyright on his 1909 edition ran out. This has a larger page format than those others, and it does not paste in his colorful ...

More Aesop's Fables
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975)
The sequel to Aesop's Fables (1975?). The price is marked in British currency. This book features rather long (eight-page) renditions of the fables, sometimes with expressive faces. The best might be GA. I have come ...

A second book of Aesop's Fables
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. The Wolves and the Dogs is here but not in the larger-format book.

(Editorial Vasco Americana, 1973)
A falling-apart kids' version. Not particularly good drawings.
(Choun Publishing, 1982)
Forty fables with simple illustrations (the same used as cover art in other Choun editions of 1980/88 and 1988). The text, the art, and the typeset differ in the first twenty and the last twenty fables. Many in the first ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Mun Gong Sa, 1989)
Typical of recent Korean work: one design echoes the facing full page. The art is bright, sometimes strong and lively, sometimes only cute. There are five fables here: The Fox, the Rooster, and the Dog; TH; The Cat and ...
Fables Written in Gregg Shorthand with Shorthand Penmanship Pointers. Reprinted from The Gregg Writer
(Reprinted from the Gregg writer, 1940)
This pamphlet, 3¼ x 6¼, contains one fable per page over pages 3-52. A lovely note from Judy Newman accompanies the pamphlet: This belonged to John's mom--just the sort of quirky little thing she would get a kick out of. ...
