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 ...
Birds, Beasts, and Fishes
(Maxwell Macmillan International Pub. Group, 1991)
An excellent collection of animal poetry, with bright and colorful art, oil paint on hardwood. There is one fable: William Ellery Leonard's version of DLS (47). There is also Hopkins' Windhover and The Captive Bird by ...
Fables for Our Time and Famous Poems Illustrated.
(Harper & Brothers, 1940)
I have worked my way back to a first edition! And now even to a dust jacket! When it appeared, this book cost $2.50! This Lien copy is in very good condition; I cannot believe how bright its inside cover is. I am ...
Old Tales of Japan, Vol. I
(Dai-Nippon Printing Co.s.n.], 1947)
These are really three folk tales, but one of them is a traditional (though non-Aesopic) fable, and so I have included the book in the collection. That is the second story, Nezumi No Yomeiri, the story about a mouse ...
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!
Kalila and Dimna: Selected Fables of Bidpai.
(Alfred A. Knopf, 1980)
See my listing under 1982 of the paperback edition, which strangely does not mention this edition. It was great to see this old paperback friend lying out as a hardbound edition on the tables at Strand!
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 ...
Fábulas: Félix María Samaniego.
(Editorial LimusaLimsua, 1986)
This book is almost identical with an edition of the same name and format by Verón/editor in 1975. This edition is slightly taller. It also includes seven full-page colored illustrations. It has thinner paper. There ...
