A Novel Journal: Aesop's Fables
(Peter Norton: Printers Row Publishing Group, 2016)
"Here is a first! This is indeed a journal for writing one's thoughts and experiences. The tiny lines in the journal are Aesop's fables. As an advertising slip proclaims, "The journal lines are the novel (in teeny, tiny ...
C.D. Cobb & Bros. Advertising Magazine
(C.D. Cobb & Bros. Advertising Magazine, 1881)
This is a curious circular put together apparently by a store with a main location and three branches in Boston and further branches in Westboro and Fitchburg. This 32-page stapled pamphlet combines various advertisements ...
Hoi Mythoi tou Aisopou
This is a catchy, lively 100-page soft-covered book of fables for children. As the closing T of C shows, there are nineteen fables presented. The cover picture gives the sense of the book's wit: a parent fox points ...
(Scholastic Book Services, 1963)
A cheap paperback. The two-color illustrations are good simple starters for several tales. Otherwise there is nothing special here. Because they are three distinct printings, I will keep all three in the collection.
Aesop: The Complete Fables
(Penguin Books Ltd., 1998)
It may be simplest to give my review here for the Classical Outlook: This book presents a good translation of the 358 prose fables in Chambry's 1927 edition of Aesop. That is its virtue, and it makes the book worth ...

The Fables of Aesop in Words of One Syllable.
(Henry Altemus Co., 1900)
This book replicates the book from the same publisher with the same title, except that it stops abruptly after 128, not even including the illustration for LM on 128. See my comments there. Its cover is white cloth, and ...
Selected Fables of Aesop
(Trautmann Bailey & Blampey,, 1964)
A Help Yourself Booklet offered to GM Men and Women by General Motors Information Rack Service. I find it amazing that I did not come across this book for twenty years and then found it twice within a month! Thirteen ...
(University of Illinois Press, 1952)
Bigger margins and thicker paper than in the Arno reprint (1952/80). Perfect condition. A real find. The standard work for textual comparison.
The Fables of Aesop Paraphras'd in Verse
(William Andrews Clark Memorial Library University of California,William Andrews Clark Memorial Library: UCLA, 1668)
The versions here are longish and filled with topical references. The illustrations are quite faint. Several put another fable's picture in the background. The best illustrations for me might be The Head and the Members ...
