Les fables d'Ésope
French version of "Aesop's Funky Fables" from Viking Penguin in 1998 and from Hamish Hamilton in 1997, with the same page count, cover design, and endpapers. Colored illustrations and black-and-white alternate in presenting ...
Aesop's Frog Fables
(Peter & Donna Thomas, 1990)
A beautifully executed book. I like the letterpress printing. The print and the versions are very attractive; I find the nine illustrations somewhat disappointing: they lack the wit or characterization one might have ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean]
I like this book, principally for its vivid color reproductions. Four stories: TMCM, GA (maybe the best art), The Bat and the Birds and the Animals (a Korean favorite), and LM (the poorest art). The back cover reverses 15.
De fabels van Aisopos
(Uitgeverij SUN, 1997)
This is a beautiful little book! How nice of Gert-Jan to inscribe it For Greg, as a souvenir of our fabulous meetings and discussions on Aesop's genre and to send it. Now I only wish I could read it! There is one fable ...
Aesop's Fables: The Fox and the Grapes and other stories
(Dreamland Publications, 1997)
Was this bright color work done in India? This is an oversized 8½ x 11 presentation of four fables. The fox in FG is female. The expression of frustration and anger on her face on the final page of FG is well done. The ...

(Penguin Books Ltd., 1998)

This book reproduces almost exactly a book I have in English: Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables (1986), a Gallery book from W.H. Smith Publishers. This edition skips the foreword, but its T of C, which borrows the ...
The Ant and the Grasshopper
(Houghton Mifflin Company, 1991)
This is a full-sized 16-page pamphlet. The illustrations are double-page spreads with simple lines, like The Ant worked. The grasshopper didn't (3). Pages 4-5 show delight in the multi-limbed character of both insects. ...
(Mitsui Fudosan, 1992)
These eleven colorful banners were hung in the lobby of 1251 Avenue of the Americas during renovations. Now this volume is dedicated to the tenants, guests, and friends for their patience and understanding during the ...
(PenguinPuffin Books, 1993)
A reprint in reduced dimensions of the lavish, beautiful first edition of 1981. Though the big format suits Holder's art better, the illustrations here are surprisingly sharp for a smaller work that is a reprint. Worth ...
