(Colorgravure Publications, 1955)
Eighty-four fables with pleasant black-and-white cartoons. Aesop, with a crutch, appears frequently in five or six repeated poses after fables. There are several good, pithy morals here, e.g. for The Angler and the Little ...
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 ...
I do not remember when I have had to fill in so many not acknowledged answers about a book! This is a 4 x 3.5 pamphlet with a total of twelve pages. Perhaps its most interesting feature is the variety of spacing and even ...
(Thomas Nelson and Sons LimitedThomas Nelson and Sons Ltd., 1955)
This is a lovely little softbound book in card wrappers. I am surprised I had not seen it before. Its first nice feature comes on the endpapers. Each animal is involved with this very book in a way appropriate to one ...
(Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd., 1955)
See my comments on the softbound copy I found a few months earlier. This hardbound copy seems identical except that the cover background is less grey and more aqua to green. The book happens to smell as though it has ...
Schoene Fabeln des Altertums
(Dieterich'sche VerlagsbuchhandlungDieterich'schen Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1954)
Compare with the later editions under 1955/84. By contrast this edition has Anmerkungen instead of Erläuterungen and names Horst Gasse as Dr. in the T of C (100). Though the pagination is the same, the plates are ...
Fabeln des Äsop
(Hermann Kuhn KG.s.n.], 1954)
I am surprised that I had not known of this book earlier. It presents thirty Aesopic fables in prose, each on a left-hand numbered page with a design on the facing right page. The pages are made of very heavy paper, and ...
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 ...
(DoubledayGarden City Books, 1954)
Large and not very impressive pastels. I have at least three different versions of this book, based on criteria of price, dust-jacket back flaps, cover design, and binding. This first version originally cost $2.50, whereas ...
(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.
