(Scholastic Book Services, 1963)
A cheap paperback. The two-color illustrations are good simple starters for several tales. Otherwise there is nothing special here. Because they are three distinct printings, I will keep all three in the collection.
Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange.
(Dover Publications, 1967)
Lovely stuff. The drawings really are excellent. I saw the first edition of this book from Harrison in Paris for sale in Atlanta at too high a price but have since found it. I have eight different versions of this Dover ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop/Nonsense Alphabets.
(Grolier Society, 1967)
This book is identical (in larger format with enlarged and relatively good illustrations) with the Avenel edition (1967?) of the same name, except that it also contains Edward Lear's Nonsense Alphabets upside down and going ...
More Aesop's Fables
(Ideals Publishing Co., 1966)
This is a small-format book, almost a pamphlet. There are companion volumes in 1965 and 1966. The milkmaid carries her pail in her hand. Facing pages, for example in The Two Crabs and The Oak and the Reed, are ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop
(Grolier Society, 1967)
Identical with the Crown/Avenel hardbound book (1967?). I have copies with both a blue-on-white front cover and -- in summer of 1989 for $3 -- a white-on-blue front cover.
Fables from Aesop
AI at the back. The alternating (water-?) colored and black-and-white illustrations are not bad. Maybe the best thing about this kids' book is the morals--e.g., for the man who loses his wig: When others laugh at us, ...
Fabulas de Esopo
(Susaeta Ediciones, S.A., 1965)
Found early in my time in Madrid. Spirited watercolor illustrations. The one-page-each approach keeps the fables nicely brief, but limits the pictures to one for each fable. I really like these witty illustrations. I ...
(Ideals Publishing Co., 1965)
A small-format book, almost a pamphlet. The companion volumes come in 1966. The best illustrations in this volume are of GGE and FG. Do not miss the DS moral: The good things that you have are lost when you are ...
Aesop's Fables: The Dog in a Manger
(Basil Blackwell, 1960)
This sixteen-page pamphlet seems to be in a series with The Wolf and the Dog, for which I had guessed a publication date of 1950. Both use Caxton's text. The telling of the fable is straightforward. The simple illustrations ...
Molitor Filiusque cum Asello Suo
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1962)
I did not suspect the existence of this book and found it by chance on the Foreign Language shelf of the children's section in the library's bookstore. What a find! Goodwin Beach's Latin is fine. I may even try it with ...
