(Association Guillaume le Roy, Lyon/Charles Eggimann, ParisC. Eggimann seul dépositaire,, 1926)
Here is an unusual piece of work. It is unstitched as issued and mostly unopened. Its paper covers are torn at the spine. After the colored frontispiece (from a 13th-century Lyon Isopet manuscript), there are 208 ...

(Nase VojskoNaše vojsko, 1957)

(Ekdoseis StratikeStratikē, 2000)
Here are thirty-six fables, each receiving a two-page spread, in a large-format polychromatic book. I recognized the work of Sergio Cavina, but am not sure of the ancestry of this volume. At least some illustrations are ...
(Galley Press, W.H. Smith & Son Limited, 1978)
Here is a very curious book, marked by the cover of a lion reading a fable book in the presence of other animals and a title-page wordless fable of two mules and two piles of fodder. The first curiosity is that I had not ...
Schoene Fabeln des Altertums

The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(Hurst & Company Publishers, 1900)
Like the adjacent listing from Lupton, this unusual book claims to have art but has none at all! It is paginated and has in fact the same plates as my Hurst Arlington editions listed under 1899? but lacks all the illustrations ...
The Best of Aesop and Other Classic Fables.
(Marshall Cavendish Ltd., 1985)
The illustrations are delightful, witty, colorful, and alive. The best may be for SW, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, and The Lion and the Peacock. The book and the tape work together well verbatim.
