(Brigitte Hanf, 1956)
Now here is a find! Only six copies were printed! The illustration style is indeed unusual as one can see well in the illustration for the first fable, CJ. Hanf's moral cleverly points to Midas surrounded by precious ...
Aisopos: Sieben Berichte aus Hellas: Der Aisopos-Roman neu übersetzt und nach den Quellen ergänzt
This seems an important work on a fascinating subject. The Columbia Dictionary of Modern European Literature says of it: The novel 'Aisopos,' his masterpiece, presents a life struggling for freedom and justice. I gather ...
A Book of Fables
(Royle Publications Ltd.,, 1950)
A sideways pamphlet of fifteen fables alternating black-and-white and colored pairs of pages. Some fascinating and different details: A boy scout chides the son for riding the donkey. The old man tips the donkey into a ...
The Wind and the Sun: Aesop's Fables Retold
(Angus & Robertson, 1951)
In my experience, it is unusual that, as here, the sun starts the argument. The story's form is the poorer version: Whichever one of us can make this poor traveller take off his coat shall be declared the stronger, suggests ...
The Dove and the Ant: Aesop's Fables Retold
(Angus & Robertson, 1951)
Various pages use pastels and black-and-white illustrations. The pastels are particularly charming. My favorite is the two-page spread on which the dove sweeps down to drop a twig for the struggling ant (12-13). This ...
Fables from Aesop And Others
(Blackie & Son Limited, 1950)

This large-format book reproduces exactly the first version of the undersized 1952 book by the same people with the same title. The only change I can find lies in the endpapers/frontispiece. See my comments there.
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952)
A colored reprint of the 1952 edition with a different cover. Another reprint in 1974 has the same cover as this book but does the illustrations only in black-and-white. The three together say something in the history ...
12 Fables of Aesop
(Museum of Modern Artdist. by Doubleday & Company, 1954)
The style is distinctive, but alas I do not find one good illustration (or story for that matter) that I would want to use. People should have a chance to see this book, but so far at least I do not find in it the fantasy ...
