The Tortoise and the Hare (Storytoon)
(Rand McNally, 1962)
Harmless, simple cartoons. The boasting hare waited in order to make the finish exciting, and the wait led to a two-minute nap that stretched on and on. The hare could never boast again.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 780(hdbd)
This hardbound version takes the first page and repeats it twice as its covers. It thus has a different cover from all the other versions. Multiple threats occur in the city house: from the cook, a trap, the cat, and ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 2912
This regular paper edition is in the best condition of the four editions I have. It drops four of the interior pages found in the other editions. Multiple threats occur in the city house: from the cook, a trap, the ...
Child's Book of Fables
(Leavitt & Allen, 1855)
I have another copy of this little eight-page pamphlet. I have listed it under 1860?; its illustrations are colored, and it adds a green cover. Here the illustrations are not colored, and the cover paper has the same ...
The Aesop for Children
Here is the first paperback edition of this classic of which I am aware. The edition includes 126 of the original 146 fables. The color presentation of the partial-page illustrations is particularly good. The inked ...

Here is a well-worn book. Its well-creased cover paper is so thick that it feels like cloth. The front cover features a lovely illustration of Quartet under the title and the branch-bending bear over it. The pamphlet ...

My Book of Animal Stories
(Marshall Cavendish Limited, 1988)
Five stories. One is a reprint in large format of Stott's MSA from The Best of Aesop (1985). The donkey was last seen swimming strongly out to sea, and the illustration does the line justice. Malcolm Livingstone also ...
Fables de la Fontaine(?)
(A. Quantin et CompanieA. Quantin inprimeur-editeur,, 1890)
A curious book. A whole set of blank pages of different paper quality is inserted before 29 and after the close of the book, where one learns that Quantin at least printed the book. This book may represent the worst ...
