(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 ...
(Editorial AtlantidaEditorial Atlántida, 1972)
Simplicity and straightforwardness mark the versions and the two-color art in this kids' book.
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!
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 ...
Ein Narr, Ein Weiser und viele Tiere: Alte Fabeln, neu erzählt
(Georg Bitter Verlag, 1973)
I enjoy this spirited book. Not quite as sardonic as Bierce, it is in the same direction. FC offers a good beginning taste of the good stuff that goes on here. The cheese hits the fox right in the nose, he breaks into ...
(Rand McNally & Company, 1972)
This may be my first flip out book, in which a two-page spread includes a page that folds out to make a triptych. The pages are well matched to create two different pictures using the image on the left, one with the ...
(Hallmark Editions, 1971)
Attractive. The pictures are cute, but I am not sure which I could use. The narratives are okay. The black-background frontispiece is very attractive. There are unusual colors in the TMCM illustration (4). After seeing ...
Lions and Lobsters and Foxes and Frogs.
(Young Scott Books, 1971)
First found in 1991 after years of searching! A wonderful, witty presentation combining Rees' tellings (from his earlier Fables from Aesop, 1966) and Gorey's pictures. Do not miss The Impatient Fox. There is always ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Seabury Press, 1971)
Lively and expressive watercolors for these three well-known fables: FG, FS, and FC. I like best the facial expressions in the stork story.
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 ...
