(Junior Literary Guild, 1933)
I was surprised to find this book. I did not know that the Artzybasheff edition was done by anyone other than Viking. Is this book actually over sixty years old? The internal book seems identical to the Viking editions. ...
Three Animal Fables Selected from Aesop.
(Thorsons Publishers, 1930)
A delightful find. The pages are not numbered, and the binding is weak. Alternating black-and-white and color illustrations. The lion and hare drawings sometimes end up slightly odd. LM features a Do not disturb sign ...
(Herbert Joseph LTD, 1935)
Fifty-two fables in a small-format book (3¾ x almost 5½). The frontispiece is a simple colored presentation of FS. Morals are italicized. The book's condition is fair. There are no surprises here!
(A.F. Formiggini EditoreKarolis F. Formiggini, 1930)
The great claim of this book is that it presents all of del Tuppo's illustrations for the fables. It is a pleasure to find this paperbound book in fair to good condition. The printing of the illustrations is not superior ...
Favorite Fables from Aesop
(Rand McNally & Company, 1939)
I have three different versions of this book and will keep two copies of this first version in the collection. I believe that this Powell's copy and the copy from Dorothy Meyer may be the most original. The two show these ...
Aesop's Fables: Mishle Izop: 312 Tales in Hebrew and English
(B.W. Hecht, 1938)
This is the first work in Hebrew to contain nearly all of Aesop's Fables. The Hebrew renderings are original: they have no connection with those of any other author. There is a good clean start to a book! It is meant ...

(Anglo-American Drug Co.NA, 1935)
This is a mid-size (5 1/2 x 7 1/2) pamphlet of twelve pages containing ten large sepia illustrations, each above a fable, a moral, and a comment on Mrs. Winslow's syrup. The patterns for the earliest illustrations here ...
The Aesop's Fables
(Xianggang qi ming shu ju, 1930)
This is a rare, ephemeral find! This 5 x 7 1/4 soft-cover paperbound book has some 290 pages. Each of 299 fables is printed in English on the left side and in Chinese characters on the right side. I cannot identify the ...
The Tortoise and the Hare and other stories from Aesop's Fables retold for very young readers.
This book is perhaps more historically than artistically interesting. The Cheating Fortune-Teller is new to me. The wife is the real culprit in GGE. The Comedian and the Countryman might be the best for both story and ...
Aesop's Fables Hankie Book
(W.R. Woodard Co. by permission of Van Beuren Corporation, 1931)
This is really a coloring book based on Genuine Aesop's Fables Film Characters. What it has to do with a hankie neither the seller nor I can figure out. It measures slightly larger than 10 x 11 and has seven pages of ...
