(Whitman Publishing Company, 1934)
The outside spine of this book is not strong, but internally it is in good condition. I like this book. It has forty-eight fables, each with a simple but accurate engraving that catches the nuance of this telling. The ...
Les Fables d'Ésope illustrées
(Librairie Croville, 1935)
The subtitle reads: Nouvelle initiation au Grec par l'Image, l'Analyse et les Tableaux synoptiques. It is just over 10½ x 8½ and has 72 pages and twelve tableaux. The 72 pages present nineteen fables. The book offers a ...

Seven fables are offered here in a deteriorating pamphlet. LM, The Hare and the Rooster, Father and Son Bear, The Monkey and the Bananas, The Little Boy and the Crocodile, The Fox and the Bear, and The Chicken and the ...
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 ...
Aesop's Fables: The Wolf and the Crane and Other Stories
(Mellifont Press Limited, 1935)
The back cover of this children's booklet advertises sixteen books in a series whose title is too long to fit into my database categories: Famous Tales of Andersen, Grimm, etc.: Children's Fairy Tales. This is T16 in that ...

(Cambridge University Press? (George Harrap?)s.n.], 1936)
This is an exceeding strange book. It has the basic marks of Bodemann #434.1, Gooden's classic edition of Aesop. But it lacks any Gooden illustrations beyond the excellent initials for each fable. Bodemann shows a ...
(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!
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 ...
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 ...
