Les Fables d'Ésope
(Club des Libraires de France, 1965)
The page after the title-page describes this lovely edition well: Les 308 fables ésopique dans une nouvelle Traduction par Jacques Lacarrière suivies d'un essai sur le symbolisme des fables, illustrées de dix miniatures ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1905)
I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to ...
Mythoi Tou Aisopou (Aesop's Fables)
(D.C. Divry, 1950)
The Greek makes for fun reading, and the verse morals are cute, but I am afraid there is not much here more than evidence that Greeks still relish the stories (and that they are good for teaching!). The illustrations are ...
City Mouse--Country Mouse.
(Scholastic Book Services, 1970)
Meant for little kids. Pleasant water-colors with cartoon statements. The illustration style is itself that of kids. I enjoy the assemblies in BC. Also included is LM. Packaged with a 33 rpm recording.
(Windmill Books, 1970)
The flyleaf is right: the eighteen tales here are illustrated with haunting cubist imagery. One especially good technique, used four times, expands a first illustration into a larger second one in a different color. ...
(Exeter Books, 1924)
Surprisingly good runs of the reproductions of Rountree's work. This book is closest to the sixteen-illustration edition of 1924? As is typical of Exeter, there is no introductory or bibliographical material.
Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated.
(The World Publishing Co.World Publishing Company, 1910)
This edition is identical, right down to page numbers, with the edition by the World Syndicate Publishing Company with a few changes. The cover is different, the pages thinner, the index at the beginning is dropped, and ...
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 ...
Kettu ja Haikara: Aisopoksen satuia
(WSOYWerner Söderström Osakeyhtiö, 1985)
This book replicates in Finnish the English book Aesop: The Fox and the Stork (1985) from Pelham in London. See my comments there. As in the English, there are twenty fables. Each gets a two-page spread with a full-page ...
Aesop's Fables for Little People
(T. Fisher Unwin, 1908)
Change the title and format of one book, and you make a brand-new other book like this one. The same publisher, author, and illustrator collaborated on Aesop's Fables for Little Readers, for which I guessed at a date of ...
