The Fables of Aesop
(Dorset Press, 1975)
This is a clear, crisp reprinting -- with almost no margins -- of Gambit's great book of 1975. The illustrations are still wonderful! As I wrote there, this is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine ...
Aesop's Fables in Irish--Parts I to V
(The Irish Book Company, 1909)
Fifty fables and a vocabulary that stretches almost longer than the fables! Sorry. Since I cannot read this text, I do not have much more to say!
The Fables of Aesop: Altemus' Young P
(Henry Altemus, 1899)
Compiled is right! The illustrators in this small, squarish book include Billinghurst, Weir, and Tenniel. The texts come from James and others. The fascinating advertisements for books at the back allow, I believe, ...
(Unicorn Publishing House, 1992)
This book makes a curious study in the movement from an original to a cheaper children's book. The sharp acrylics of Sturrock's 1988 edition have lost something here. The thirty fables there have become nineteen here. ...
The Fables of Aesop in Words of One Syllable.
(Henry Altemus Co., 1900)
This book is a triumph of pirating! The very first story, WL, comes straight from Godolphin. Note that Altemus has used the same text in The Fables of Aesop (1899), both in and outside the Altemus' Young People's Library ...
(New York Publishing Company, 1895)
This book has identical plates with the American News edition (1885?) without Krilof's fables. This book has an embossed maroon cloth cover, much thicker pages than that edition, and pages gilt at the top. Can the plates ...
Aesop's Fables With a Life of Aesop
(The University Press of KentuckyUniversity of Kentucky Press, 1993)
An excellent book and a valuable resource. A good introduction leads up to placing Hurus' book in history. Good comments on the history and traditions. Rinuccio translated Planudes from Greek into Latin in about 1450. ...
(London: William Heinemann/NY: Doubleday, Page, and Co., 1912)
T of C and list of illustrations. Both the colored and black-and-white illustrations are very well done. The colored illustrations come alive in this early edition, e.g., The Crab and His Mother, The Blackamoor, 2P, Venus ...
Fables of Aesop, and Others(?)
This little volume is lacking a number of things, including its title-page, Fables II-VI, and the last 1½ fables. If it followed the tradition of similar Croxall editions, also lacking are a frontispiece, a preface, and ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Printing Department, Wolverhampton College of Art, 1953)
What a beautiful gift! Sharp translations of 118 fables are accompanied by thirteen lovely black-and-white engravings and monochrome and two-color washes. My favorites among the illustrations are of the old woman and her ...
