Die Diebe und der Hahn: Fabeln des Äsop und Äsopische Fabeln des Phädrus
(Verlag Philipp Reclam Jun., 1975)
This is the third version I have of this book. The other two seem to have been the original East German done by Buchverlag der Morgen in Berlin in 1966 and a 1975 follow-up by VMA Verlag in Wiesbaden. The present copy ...
Aesop's Fables (Well Loved Tales)
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975)
Perhaps a better copy than the reproduction done by Book Essentials, which I have listed under the same year. See my comments there. This copy has the British price marked on the corner of the end-paper.
The Fables of Aesop: The American Prospectus.
(Editiones Officinae BodoniOfficinal Bodoni, 1973)
I doubt that I will ever have anything else from the Officina Bodoni in this collection! This eight-page brochure presents the edition by detailing who has worked on the texts and the illustrations. Texts include Latin ...
la liebre y la tortuga
(Ediciones La GaleralaGalera, 1973)
This version places the story outside Barcelona. The best of the illustrations is of the bunny sleeping against a tree. This rabbit napped until the turtle caught up. Then the rabbit took off to Vic and there had dinner ...
Aesop In the Afternoon
(Citation Press, 1972)

Aesop's Fables Coloring Book
(Dover Publications, 1972)
Valuable because of the nicely enlarged and clear Ulm drawings (1476).
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Clarion Books: Houghton Mifflin, 1971)
I immediately presumed that this book was a copy of one I already had. It turns out that I have several copies of the Weekly Reader printing and a paperback of this version but never had this hardbound source for the ...
A Type Specimen of Lutetia: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, Printer, 1970)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically Lutetia 12D Roman and Italic, 14D Roman and Italic, and 16D Roman.. Good woodblock illustrations ...
A Type Specimen of Baskerville: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, 1971)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically 12 point Roman, Bold, and Italic and 8 point, 10 point, and 12 point Roman with Italic. Wonderful, ...
Corpus Fabularum Aesopicarum.
(Teubner BSB, 1970)
This book apparently includes the addenda and corrigenda of Haas appended in the 1957 edition, which this edition revises (see my comments there). There is an Ordo Fabularum beginning on XXXIII. This fascicle contains ...
