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
(Mayflower Books, 1894)
I continue to find various reprints of this great book. This book brings to nine the number of different formats in which I have this work. This edition is very nicely done for $5.95. The illustrations are clear. The ...
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, ...
A Selection of One Hundred of Perrin's Fables Accompanied with a Key
(Lea & Blanchard, 1832)
This copy differs from the copy I have marked 1832/40 in very few ways: by the year on the title page, by a slightly different format on the bottom of the title page, and by the listing of a printer on the back of the ...
(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 ...
Fables of a Jewish Aesop
(David R. Godine Publisher,Nonpareil Books: David R. Godine, 2001)
I have a hardbound copy of the 1967 original publication from which this paperback is reprinted. This edition adds an essay by David Hadas. Let me repeat some of my comments from that edition. This is a curious but ...
(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. ...
