(London: J.M. Dent & Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton & Company, 1961)
A beautiful edition distinctive for its green, blue, orange or tan two-tone art, a specimen of which appears on every page except 15 and 71. Some samples of very good illustration occur on 46, 85, 108, and 114. Perhaps ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables
Here are one-hundred-and-twenty-eight fables presented on facing pages in English and Japanese, with occasional simple black-and-white illustrations. There is a T of C on 3-9. At the end there are some exercises, an ...
(Franklin Watts, 1968)
An old Library of Congress book that was never taken out once and so is in excellent condition. Vastly superior in its illustrations to the Avenel facsimile (1975?). This is not a facsimile, for it omits the illustration ...
Oshare no Kitsune-Isoppu Dowashu (Chic Fox-Aesop's Nursery Tale Collection).
I see thirty-one listings in the T of C at the (Japanese) beginning, but it seems to me that there are many more fables than that here. The illustrations on the box and cover are simple but nice. The three full-color ...
Aisopou Mythoi (Greek)
(Adelphon Konstantinide[Ekdoseis Adelphōn Kōnstantinidē], 1966)
Imagine my surprise at finding a serious modern Greek presentation of Aesop in Tokyo! There are 358 fables without notes or commentary after a short introduction on Aesop and fables. AI at the back.
Kodansha No E Hon: Isoppu E Banashi
The Japanese title means Picture Book: Picture Tales. Dialogue. The Japanese cover shows a brightly-colored eagle dropping a turtle in mid-air. The fables feature bright illustrations. Among them I find FS, The Wolf ...
Isoppu Ebanashi (2)
This thick-paged children's book shows its age. The spine is weak and cramped. Various artists present generally a two-page spread of simple art for each fable. The stories include BF, The Net That Lets Little Fish ...
Die Diebe und der Hahn: Fabeln des Äsop und Äsopische Fabeln des Phädrus
(Buchverlag der Morgen, 1966)
I like this book. It takes up Hegenbarth's work from its 1949 presentation (Äsop: Fabeln) and gives it a livelier and larger format. The format is generous; there is never more than one fable on a page, and there are ...
(Franklin Watts, 1968)
Here is a dust-jacketed reprinting of a book already in the collection under 1968. Vastly superior in its illustrations to the Avenel facsimile (1975?). This is not a facsimile, for it omits the illustration of the ...
This copy is internally identical with another in the collection, a gift of Gerry McKevitt, S.J. This copy has a red dust-jacket labelled, on its inside front flap, Book Club Edition. It uses gold ink on the front cover ...
