Drei Dutzend Fabeln von Äsop
Bodemann #512.1. I had hoped for this book since I saw it used for the last illustration in Hobbs. The book is remarkable first of all for using Steinhöwel as the basis for its texts for its thirty-six prose fables. One ...
Les Fables d'Ésope
(Club des Libraires de France, 1965)
The page after the title-page describes this lovely edition well: Les 308 fables ésopique dans une nouvelle Traduction par Jacques Lacarrière suivies d'un essai sur le symbolisme des fables, illustrées de dix miniatures ...
Aesop's Fables--lessons in living
This book is singular for giving not only a moral but an application in each instance. I would gather that it is also an example of eclecticism in the cranking out of Gift Books. Here we have two translators, two ...
(Junior Deluxe Editions, 1968)
The same material one finds in the standard Doubleday editions (1968) with the exception of Singer's introduction and the AI at the back. The print is larger, the order of fables is rearranged, and there seem to be fewer of them.

Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
This lovely reproduction in exaggerated portrait format (4¾ x 8½) is a mystery to me. It presents very traditional rectangular illustrations, one for each of the 117 fables. They seem to be signed by I Raymond. But I ...
Favole di Esopo
(Arnoldo Mondadori Editore, 1965)
A really clever and delightful book, which uses graphics of all sorts in the margins to enjoy what is being related. Full-spread colored pages alternate with black-and-white texts and simple drawings. I could use a number ...

Here are six fables on 45 large-format pages. Authorised edition based on the popular Television Series. The six fables are GA, LM, DLS, DS, TH, and TMCM. The characters have names, like Annie Ant and Griselda Grasshopper. ...
