Aesop's Fables: A Selection
(The Acorn Press, 1982)
I got very lucky as I ducked into an unlikely shop featuring mostly new books and publishers' remainders. A bookcase of older and used books included two treasures. (The other is a pamphlet from Verona by Giovanni ...
Der Fuchs und die Trauben und sieben weitere Fabeln des Aesop.
(Heinrich Ellermann Verlag, 1982)
Lively full-page colored pictures and pithy rhymed two-line morals help this book to be a fine little contemporary representative of Aesop. The best pictures are the last four. Are the morals already existing proverbs in German?
Aesop's Fables Coloring Album
(Troubador Press, 1982)
About fifteen splendiferous psychedelic pictures to color in. Generally the art has lost sight of the story here. I could use one illustration to show different reactions to stories by different artists.
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1982)
T of C. No index. No illustrations. No translator. The ultimate gem in cheap and massive Aesop! This book might be helpful for offering a variety or a specific formulation of morals.
Fábulas Completas de Esopo.
(Editores Mexicanos UnidesEditores Mexicanos Unidos, 1982)
The only Mexican edition I have. It came to me from a South American book dealer working at the Salamanca flea market (the book is marked for distribution in Venezuela). T of C at the end. Primitive but engaging dot ...
Aesopi Fabulae I
(Shogakukan CompanySh¿gakkan, 1982)

(Shogakukan Co.Sh¿gakkan, 1982)
This is a very unusual volume-and a great bargain! (It originally sold for ¥1200.) After seventeen fables on 6-76, there are games and information at the end, including photos of police cars! Page 4 acknowledges Fabbri ...
Fables By Aesop
This is a large-format (8½ x 11) classroom book of 65 pages. It aims at providing students with the opportunity of sharing in the cultural heritage that Aesop's fables have provided us but without the barriers of complicated ...
(The Franklin Library, 1982)
A pretty but, I would say, misguided book. The thirty or so engravings from Grandville are very well presented. The putting together of Grandville, who illustrated LaFontaine, with two translators of Aesop has its problems. ...
Stories from Aesop
(Oxford University PressUni-Phone Language Institute, 1982)
A good paperback with a clever concept. Pages 1-80 fit anywhere; pages 81ff. give Korean notes and translations (and identify Uni-Phone Korea's publication date). There are nine fables with simple illustrations often set ...
