Die Diebe und der Hahn: Fabeln des Äsop und Äsopische Fabeln des Phädrus
(Verlag Philipp Reclam Jun., 1975)
This is the third version I have of this book. The other two seem to have been the original East German done by Buchverlag der Morgen in Berlin in 1966 and a 1975 follow-up by VMA Verlag in Wiesbaden. The present copy ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Clarion Books: Houghton Mifflin, 1971)
I immediately presumed that this book was a copy of one I already had. It turns out that I have several copies of the Weekly Reader printing and a paperback of this version but never had this hardbound source for the ...
Aesop In the Afternoon
(Citation Press, 1972)
A surprise find of a book I have sought for several years. Cullum presents the fables as dramas for teachers to use in less heady afternoon sessions of school. The fables, told traditionally, are divided according to the ...
A Type Specimen of Lutetia: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, Printer, 1970)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically Lutetia 12D Roman and Italic, 14D Roman and Italic, and 16D Roman.. Good woodblock illustrations ...
A Type Specimen of Baskerville: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, 1971)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically 12 point Roman, Bold, and Italic and 8 point, 10 point, and 12 point Roman with Italic. Wonderful, ...
(Rand McNally & Company, 1972)
This may be my first flip out book, in which a two-page spread includes a page that folds out to make a triptych. The pages are well matched to create two different pictures using the image on the left, one with the ...
(Hallmark Editions, 1971)
Attractive. The pictures are cute, but I am not sure which I could use. The narratives are okay. The black-background frontispiece is very attractive. There are unusual colors in the TMCM illustration (4). After seeing ...
Lions and Lobsters and Foxes and Frogs.
(Young Scott Books, 1971)
First found in 1991 after years of searching! A wonderful, witty presentation combining Rees' tellings (from his earlier Fables from Aesop, 1966) and Gorey's pictures. Do not miss The Impatient Fox. There is always ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Seabury Press, 1971)
Lively and expressive watercolors for these three well-known fables: FG, FS, and FC. I like best the facial expressions in the stork story.
Fábulas de Esopo/Vida de Esopo/Fábulas de Babrio.
(Editorial Gredos, 1978)
My first Spanish find, on my first day in Madrid. My guess is that the Spanish translations are accurate and careful. Sixteen illustrations, most from the Zaragossa Ysopet; they seem to be identical with the Ulm woodcuts. ...
