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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

This thin book of 106 pages contains, as the T of C at the end shows, forty-two fables, with appendices offering Gellert's statements about himself, Gellert and bibliophiles, and excerpts from literary exercises of Gellert's. ...

The How and Why Program: Hero Unit
(L.J. Bullard Co., 1930)
Five fables told in traditional fashion are mixed into this book. Only one has an illustration: The Fox and the Goat (309).
Abdallah or the Magic Rug and Other Stories.
(Child Play Magazine?, 1929)
Perhaps a title page is missing. Three fables, each with something different. SW has a bet over stripping a man of (all) his clothes--and gets him into a stream. TH has the tortoise dozing across the finish line. FG ...
La Fontaine - Diran Antreasian
This Armenian book of La Fontaine's fables was inscribed in 1951. 176 pages. The first half seems to feature poetic texts, while the second half has prose. A black-and-white portrait of La Fontaine appears on 5. ...
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 ...
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 ...
