The Favourite Book of Fables
(Pryor Publications, 2002)
This book reproduces the 1890 original version by Thomas Nelson and Sons. Pryor Publications is, in their own terms, Specialist in Facsimile Reproductions. I also have a copy of the 1891 printing. This version continues ...
Aesop's Fables: The Crow and the Serpent and Other Stories
(Shree Book Centre, 2012)
This book seems to be the third in a series of twenty books, thirteen of which present Aesop's fables. That is surprising, since the book contains sixty fables. Most series present only some one hundred fables; this ...
(Shanti Publications, 2011)
Here is a sturdy 144-page book with a fable on every page after the first six pages, which include a numbered T of C on 4-6. Each page has a strong colored cartoon at its top, and each adds a moral. I find it a good ...
Aesoper Galpa Samagra (Aesop's Fables: Bengali)
(Sisu Sahitya Sangsad, Pv. Lt., 2009)
Here is a genuine find in this sense: I found it without help on the shelves in this fine bookshop near St. Xavier's College in Kolkata. The picture on the cover, including a fox and some grapes, gave me the clue. It is ...
Aesopi Phrygis Fabulae elegantissimis Eiconibus Veras Animalium Species ad vivum adumbrantes
(Apud Joannem Tornaesium, 1570)
Here is one of the treasures of this collection. The title-page seems to be a photocopy, hopefully from the same edition.
Les Fables d'Esope Phrygien avec Celles de Philelphe. Traduction Nouvelle
Edition nouv. avec nouvelles Fig. The date is unfortunately cut off the bottom of the page. This copy seems to line up perfectly with Bodemann #97.3 except for the frontispiece, which here has Aesop (?) on a pedestal in ...
Fabeln von Aesop
(Sonderausgabe für den Gondrom Verlag, 1981)
Here is an extra copy of this book found fourteen years before I found a good copy. Unfortunately, the pop-ups here have mostly collapsed, and the publisher's name is no longer legible on the last page. As I write there, ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(PML Editions, 1994)
Here is a third country heard from, as I already have this book in two British and one German versions -- from respectively, Brown Watson, Octopus, and Gondrom. The Buchinist who sold it to me said Incroyable when I found ...
12 Fabeln von Aesop
(Michael Neugebauer, 2012)
This is a lovely book I happened to find when I was trying to spend down the little money left on my Eurocheck debit card in the late days of my stay in Mannheim. The book is unusual in opening not from right to left but ...
Here is a third copy of this booklet. A reprint in reduced dimensions of the lavish, beautiful first edition of 1981. Though the big format suits Holder's art better, the illustrations here are surprisingly sharp for a ...
