Aesop's Fables (with 16 colour plates and 8 sepia illustrations)
(Ward Lock & Co., Limited,, 1924)
I happened to notice this book on an ABE listing and did not remember the sepia illustrations. So I checked my book and saw that it seemed otherwise identical to the one being offered but had no sepia illustrations. Now ...
Fables, A Short Anthology
(Keystone Picture BooksMartin International Pty Ltd., 1991)
This book reproduces exactly the hugely oversized book of the same year, title, and publisher. This book is only 7¾ x10½. See my comments there.
(Golden Press: Western Publishing, 1965)
This is the first acquaintance I have had with a paperback version of this wonderful book. I am surprised that I have not run into it earlier. See my comments on the 1965 hardbound edition. I find no differences from ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables Illustrated with Reproductions of Fifteenth Century Woodcuts
(A. Colish, 1988)
This is perhaps an unusual fine edition in that it does not tell where its publisher has his press. The texts of the forty-nine fables seem to be based, at least in part, on James' version of the fables. There are some ...
(Kodansha International, 1993)
Here is an extra copy of this booklet. This is a very well organized booklet. There are ten fables (BC, AD, LM, FG, SW, DLS, BW, TB, DS, and TH). Each has two or three illustrations. There are notes at the end for ...
The Fables of Esope: from Jane Grabhorn's typographic laboratory in San Francisco

(Editiones Officinae BodoniOfficina Bodoni, 1973)
Read my commentary on the prospectus for this two-volume work under the same title and year, and you will read I doubt that I will ever have anything else from the Officina Bodoni in this collection! Hallelujah! I have ...
Famous Fables: A New Children's Musical Based upon four traditional famous fables: Pupil's Play Part
(Golden Apple Productions: Chester Music LimitedGolden Apple a division of Chester music,, 1994)
See the Teacher's Book listed under the same title and dated 1994? (since I can find no date mentioned in it). Read my comments there. Among my comments there I mentioned that I would be trying to get the play-book. I ...
The First Three Books of Caxton's Aesop Containing the Fables Illustrated in the Verona Aesopus of MCCCCLXXIX
(Editiones Officinae Bodoni, 1973)
I have to admit that this volume is come-down after the spectacular first volume of the set, The Fables of Aesop Printed from the Veronese edition of 1479 (1973). Here there is no illustration at all. The typeface used ...
(*Ceska graficka Unie, 1941)
Nice line illustrations, e.g. of Aesop surrounded by the animals before Book I. Every fable seems to get at least one illustration. Book I has 72 fables. Book II has 14. There is an epilogue by Dr. Kuthan and a T of C ...
