Corpus Fabularum Aesopicarum.
(B. G. Teubner, 1959)
This book picks up at #182 from the first fascicle (1957, revised in 1970). I searched for this volume for years, using a copy I had xeroxed from Marquette's library. Its special contribution lies in the lists--beyond ...
Fables of Aesop
(Penguin Books, 1954)
The text seems otherwise unchanged from the 1954 first printing. There is a new cover. Note that the reference to Rieu on the very first page has changed. This newer book was cheaper than the older one!
(University of Illinois Press, 1952)
Bigger margins and thicker paper than in the Arno reprint (1952/80). Perfect condition. A real find. The standard work for textual comparison.
Zehn Fabeln des Aesop
Each of the ten fables here has one, two, or three small woodcuts colored in green and black. Most are about 2 square. The best of them include TB, FC, and Fabel vom Pfau und der Göttin. Pferd, Rind, Hund und Mensch has ...
Aesopica Vol. 1: Greek & Latin Texts
(Arno Press, 1952)
The standard work for textual comparison. It is hard to know if it is worth $75, but at least the Arno Press version has the complete original.
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Golden Press, 1950)
The delightful story of Prudence and Flash. Much is added: the names, a provocation, character descriptions, fans on both sides, a description of the night before, the goal, and some activities along the way. Apparently ...
Aesop's Fables To Read and To Color
(Capitol Publishing Company, 1952)
This is a 32-page pamphlet 5½ square. Its cover has a delightful full-color painting of a fox with pince-nez reading Aesop's Fables while other animals look on and listen. The style reminds me of Russian work being done ...
A nice source. Do not miss the index of illustrations at the back. The text seems to be exactly the same as Hausrath and Perry.
12 Fables of Aesop
(Museum of Modern Artdist. by Doubleday & Company, 1954)
The style is distinctive, but alas I do not find one good illustration (or story for that matter) that I would want to use. People should have a chance to see this book, but so far at least I do not find in it the fantasy ...
Aesop's Fables (Japanese)
(Iwanami Shoten, 1955)
The series format reminds one of Penguin books in English. Twenty black-and-white illustrations decorate the text along the way. Particularly good are those for DLS (199) and for FS (31), also in color on the (Eastern) ...
