Zehn Fabeln des Aesop
Each of the ten fables here has one, two, or three small woodcuts colored in green and black. Most are about 2 square. The best of them include TB, FC, and Fabel vom Pfau und der Göttin. Pferd, Rind, Hund und Mensch has ...
Aesopica Vol. 1: Greek & Latin Texts
(Arno Press, 1952)
The standard work for textual comparison. It is hard to know if it is worth $75, but at least the Arno Press version has the complete original.
A nice source. Do not miss the index of illustrations at the back. The text seems to be exactly the same as Hausrath and Perry.
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952)
This book is the same as the previous book, except that the pictures are all done in black-and-white. This book has the rare distinction of separating the two pages of T of C to put in between a page containing only ...
The Fables of Aesop now newly imprinted by Vincent Torre
(At The Ink-Well PressPrinted for E.W. at the Sign of the Ink-Well, 1952)

(Dog?us ̧Ltd. Si̧rketi MatbaasiDogus Ltd. Sirketi Matbaasi, 1958)
This little (about 4½ x 6) pamphlet contains eleven fables, as the closing T of C makes clear. Besides the fables, there are four pages of texts and a page of music and lyrics for Au Clair de la Lune. I am not sure how ...
(Garden City Books, 1954)
Large and not very impressive pastels. I have at least three different versions of this book, based on criteria of price, dust-jacket back flaps, cover design, and binding. The price of this third version has been clipped ...
Aesop's Fables To Read and To Color
(Capitol Publishing Company Inc.,, 1952)
A small, almost-square pamphlet that Jim Ciletti was good enough to take from five non-fable mates. The grasshopper realizes his mistake before the ant has a chance to say anything! Fourteen fables and a last page on how ...
Fabeln des Äsop
(Hermann Kuhn KG.s.n.], 1954)
I am surprised that I had not known of this book earlier. It presents thirty Aesopic fables in prose, each on a left-hand numbered page with a design on the facing right page. The pages are made of very heavy paper, and ...
