Fábulas: Esopo, Fedro, Iriarte, Samaniego y Hartzenbusch
(Editorial Andrés Bello, 1983)
"The introduction is well titled "Cinco Fabulistas." I think I could understand immediately choosing the latter three. They are prominent Spanish language fabulists. Why take only Aesop and Phaedrus from the classic ...
Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...
Fables in Verse
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)
"Twenty-six years ago I bought a first copy of this book at Renaissance in Milwaukee. Here is a second copy in poorer condition. It has the same printer's error listed below. I keep it in the collection because it is a ...
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 ...
El Cuervo y la Zorra
(Ediciones A. Saldaña, 1999)
"Once again, things come together from different times and places. In Salamanca in 1986, I found a simple pop-up from a publisher I did not know. Sixteen years later I found a French die-cut presentation of LM done by ...
Fables composées pour l'éducation du Duc de Bourgogne par Fénelon
(Jouaust: Librairie des Bibliophiles, 1884)
There are twenty-eight prose fables here, indicated by the closing T of C. This edition is surprisingly well preserved. Other editions I have found by Fénelon seem to have thirty-nine prose fables.
More Fables from Aesop (28)
(F.A. Owen, 1905)
This paper-covered pamphlet contains eight fables for first graders. The Instructor Literature Series contains 306 volumes at this time. The original price was $.07 or less. The fables are again told very simply. See ...
Fables: La Fontaine.
A fascinating school edition, with plenty of pictures. Some are from the tradition of Aesop: Pilpay, Oudry, Bayeux, Nevelet; others are from famous artists; then there are photos of pigs and cats for little French kids ...
(Yearling: Dell Publishing Company, 1977)
This book has been on my want list for a long time, and now within a few months I have found it in both hardbound and paperback versions. See my extensive comments on the text and illustrations under the listing for the ...
Book Trails for Baby Feet, Volumes 1-2
(Shepard and Lawrence, 1928)
This book has a dark blue cover. It seems to be a combination of the first two volumes in my red-covered set from Antiques And... in Hastings. This full book is in very poor condition, with many sections missing. See ...
