12 Fables en Sabir Franco-Arabe et Ben-Ali à l'École, Scène Comique en Sabir
(Art et ComédieEdicom Direct S.A., 1988)
Here are twelve fables in Franco-Arabic pidgin. I am surprised at how much sense I can make out of these texts. There is a short translation of Arabic words into French on the first page. The selection here is heavy on ...
Lafontaine' den Masallar: Tilki ile Leylek
(Kurtulus YayinlariKurtulus Yayınları, 1991)
This well-preserved pamphlet of 32 pages announces itself well with a fine colored picture on the cover of FS. The colored illustrations continue inside: FS (4); DLS (5); MM (8); FC (12); TH (16); WL (20); MSA (21); TT ...
Phaedri Augusti Liberti Fabularum Aesopiarum Libri Quinque
(Sumtibus Tobiae Loeffleri/Tobias Loeffler, 1825)
This seems to be a reworking of the first edition I have from Loeffler in 1786. The type has been newly set. What appear in that earlier edition as Addenda ad Notas on xv-lxi seem here to have been integrated into the ...
Fables de La Fontaine II
(La Bonne Compagnie, 1946)
Again, a beautiful find. See my notes on the first volume. My favorite aquarelles here include the bed of the man who finds a louse significant matter to pray over (60), the road over the hill as an image for The Two ...
Jack and Jill
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895)
This book represents a great find on a lightning shopping visit over the lunch break of a Jesuit meeting. The book is in terrible condition, with virtually no spine left at all and all the pages loose. This curious book ...
Frisky Fables, Vol. 4 No. 3
(Premium Group of ComicsPremium Service Company, 1948)
As I feared, this comic book has nothing to do with fables. Its stories are all typical comic book stuff.
Walt Disney's Story Land: 55 Favorite Stories
(NY: A Golden Book/Racine: Western Publishing Co.Western Publishing Comapny, 1962)
See the hardbound edition under 1962. This printing--marked Special Edition on its back cover and New and Revised on the front cover--represents some changes. Copyrighted in 1962, 1987, and 1991. A small MCMXCIV in the ...
Il volgarizzamento delle favole di Galfredo dette di Esopo: testo di lingua, Vol. 2
(Gaetano Romagnoli, 1866)
Here is the second volume of a set whose unusual character I have suggested in my comments on Volume 1. This book still has a covering on its spine (broken between 112 and 113), and it reads Testo Inedito and Parte II. ...
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895)
This book compares most closely with my 1896 Aesop's Fables from Donohue, Henneberry, and Company. See my comments there. This book has a strange first page with four rabbits around a cartoon of grandpa kicking a football. ...
Highlights for Children, May, 1971
This edition contains The Donkey and His Shadow: An Old Fable (13). There is one good paragraph of text and a simple black-and-yellow illustration. In the maze that is Schroeder's, I consider this a find!
