(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 ...
Favole di Esopo
(Arnoldo Mondadori Editore, 1965)
A really clever and delightful book, which uses graphics of all sorts in the margins to enjoy what is being related. Full-spread colored pages alternate with black-and-white texts and simple drawings. I could use a number ...
About a dozen fables with rather simplistic large-scale illustrations. It is hard for me to see much use for them. One of the first books I remember collecting.
(Bobley: Children's Classics Library, 1899)
A good example of a cheap knockoff reprint of an earlier work. See the editions dated 1899?, 1900, 1902, 1925, 1930, and 1930?. The text is identical with the non-expanded JBR versions, but the morals are omitted. ...
Ésope: Le Renard Qui Avait la Queue Coupée et Autres Fables.
(Enfantimages: Éditions Gallimard, 1857)
Beautifully reproduced colored pictures of seventeen fables from Bennett. The color work may be superior to that in editions from this country. The clever cover-picture is not included inside the book. The Wolf in the ...
Labyrinte de Versailles
(Nicolaus Visscher, 1683)
Finding this book was a terrific surprise! Laurence Veyrier had shown me a number of fable books. As I finished, she mentioned offhand that I probably would not be interested in the Versailles labyrinth. I have looked ...
Aesop's Four Footed Fables
(Star Rover House, 1985)
A strange book combining typed text and crude two-colored illustrations. The best pictures are those of the dog and sow (5) and of the camel looking in the mirror (35). The text of The Cat and the Rats catches the ...
The Little Esop
(Philadelphia: Smith and Peck; New Haven: Durrie and Peck, 1844)
A wonderful little treasure. The paper is stained, but the book is otherwise in great shape. The best illustrations are The Stag and His Horns (29) and LM (45). In versions different from the usual, the mouse gets into ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Henry Altemus, 1899)
This book seems a cheaper version of the Altemus' Young People's Library edition; see the two copies of this edition listed nearby. This book shares the same spine format with the Yoffee copy there, but has a dark ...
