12 Fables of Aesop
(Museum of Modern Art, 1954)
Is it just the amount I had to pay for it that makes me much more partial to Frasconi's art here than I had been to it in the smaller booklets done at the same time? The stories still seem to me to represent unfortunate ...
Aesop's Fables To Read and To Color
(Capitol Publishing Company Inc.,, 1952)
A small, almost-square pamphlet that Jim Ciletti was good enough to take from five non-fable mates. The grasshopper realizes his mistake before the ant has a chance to say anything! Fourteen fables and a last page on how ...
Zehn Fabeln des Aesop
Each of the ten fables here has one, two, or three small woodcuts colored in green and black. Most are about 2 square. The best of them include TB, FC, and Fabel vom Pfau und der Göttin. Pferd, Rind, Hund und Mensch has ...
Aesopica Vol. 1: Greek & Latin Texts
(Arno Press, 1952)
The standard work for textual comparison. It is hard to know if it is worth $75, but at least the Arno Press version has the complete original.
Animal Stories in Basic Vocabulary
(Garrard Press, 1952)
This book is similar to Aesop's Stories for Pleasure Reading (1951), also by the Dolches. Almost all of the twenty stories here are fables. They include The Camel and the Pig, The Goat and the Wolf, How the Rabbit Fooled ...
A nice source. Do not miss the index of illustrations at the back. The text seems to be exactly the same as Hausrath and Perry.
This is a typical Japanese fable book as I have come to know them. I am guessing that it is in a series of twenty-five books. They are listed on the last page, which for Western readers is where we look for the first ...
Fabeln des Äsop
(Hermann Kuhn KG.s.n.], 1954)
I am including a second copy of this book because I have found a copy dedicated by the artist. The other copy, #455 of 500, is identical and has Gothein's signature with the number at the book's end. This copy, #285 of ...
Mythoi Tou Aisopou (Aesop's Fables)
(D.C. Divry, 1950)
The Greek makes for fun reading, and the verse morals are cute, but I am afraid there is not much here more than evidence that Greeks still relish the stories (and that they are good for teaching!). The illustrations are ...
A Dozen from Aesop
(Cooper Union Art SchoolRichard Schiff at the Cooper Union, 1951)
The bookseller writes: An entirely hand made and hand penned book transcribed by Richard Schiff at the Cooper Union February 1951. 'Translated for children by Milo and Ana Winter' at the bottom of the title page. Laid ...
