(Henry Holt and Company, 1999)
See my comments on the original hardbound edition in 1985. This paperbound book reproduces it very well. I notice a much different color resolution in the first fable illustration, TMCM (1). The picture has become darker ...
Fábulas de Esopo
(Editorial Everest, S.A., 1996)
I have several different editions of this book in English. I am surprised that it took so long for this popular edition to get into Spanish. My favorite images are still FG and the untitled last image of the fox on 32. ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Rupa & Co., 1993)
This is a Penguin-like paperback containing 313 fables. There is a T of C at the front. I can find no particular source for the texts. There is a problem on 219-220: the story is abbreviated on 219, while 220 presents ...

Together with the second volume, this work reproduces Eric Kincaid's Aesop's Fables of 1993 from Brimax. This book lists the Brimax copyright in 1995. As there, The Boasting Traveler illustration is the frontispiece in ...

Here is yet another edition of Santore's work. This one largely reproduces the Random House edition of 1995 with smaller margins and a different cover. This cover is red and displays a picture of the fox and the boar, ...
Once in a Wood: Ten Tales from Aesop
(A Mulberry Paperback Book: Greenwillow BooksMulberry Books, 1993)
Here is the paperback version of a hardbound book published in 1979, which I had found in 1985. Only the binding seems to have changed. See my comments there.
Favole di Esopo
(Einaudi Ragazzi, 1994)
This book reproduces in smaller paperback form the 1989 large hardbound book published by Barron. The paperback's size is 4¼ x 7¼; these proportions make for a narrow portrait format, and so the original images are regularly ...
Aesop's Fables: The Miller and His Donkey and The Greedy Dog
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1994)
Here is the first printing of a pamphlet whose republication I have listed under 1995 from the same publisher. Books in this edition and this year cost $2.50. When reprinted a year later, they cost $2.95. See my comments there.
Aesop's (Oh So Slightly) Updated Fables
(Baker's Plays, 1998)
Here are six fables as engaging contemporary plays. In each case the drama takes a playful approach to the fable. Thus DS can engage in good irony when it has the narrator speak of the butcher trying to have a sincere ...
