Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(The World Publishing Co., 1910)
"There is already a copy of this book in the collection, found in 1992. Now some 33 years later, I have found a copy in better condition with a dust jacket. It is hard to believe that the book was printed as early as ...
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1947)
The same as the previous entry but in a smaller format, with scaled down drawings and water colors. The paperback edition matches this smaller edition in size. My clues to the early character of the Bookman's Corner copy ...
The Country Mouse and the City Mouse; The Fox and the Crow; The Dog and His Bone.
(NY: A Golden Book/Racine: Western Publishing Co.Western Publishing Company, 1961)
This is a re-issue of the above book, with a touched up cover, title page, and copyright page. The price has gone up from 25 to 99 cents! And there is a new publisher involved.
Aesop: Fables/Medieval Tales
(Great Books Foundation, 1963)
Two fables per page through 48 pages. Compare with the 1967 version, which is shorter, is mated with different works, and occupies a different place in the GB program. The versions seem to be developed from Jacobs.
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1963)

The Ladder to Learning: A Collection of Fables Arranged Progressively in Words of One, Two, and Three Syllables, with Original Morals
(Grant and Griffith, Successors to John Harris, 1845)
See my remarks on the fourteenth edition in 1835. What has changed here? The engravings are now labeled on the title-page as wood engravings. Grant and Griffith has succeeded to John Harris as publisher. The company-name ...
Bewick's Select Fables
(Hillside Press, 1965)
Notable as one of the smallest Aesops I have found: about an inch square. The introduction (by F.E.I. ) points out that Bewick's originals were only two inches high. Eleven fables, each with an illustration, plus FC ...
Aesop's Fables (Inside: Old Fables in a New Dress)
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1890)
This book has the same title, the same inside title, and the same contents as another book in the collection. What is different in this perhaps earlier publication is fourfold. First, the cover picture is not FC with a ...
This is a typical Japanese fable book as I have come to know them. I am guessing that it is in a series of twenty-five books. They are listed on the last page, which for Western readers is where we look for the first ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2 (D13)
(Ge Kyoung Sa, 1988)
About 120 fables, most with simple black-and-white illustrations. The book begins with many lion, ass, and wolf stories. The last few pages have advertisements for computer and children's books.
