Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables
(Joshua Morris PublishingWishing Well Books, 1986)
This book seems an exact reproduction of one done in the same year by Gallery Books of Smith Publishers of NY. That book was printed in Hong Kong. This book is in the series Wishing Well Books by Joshua Morris Publishing ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
(Society for Visual Education, 1980)
Nice simple big landscape pictures, one to a page. In this version, the mean-eyed, hairy cat greets the mice: Hello, boys. Having some dinner? Hot rolls and cake are the symbols of the city's luxury. The two mice shake ...
(The Franklin Library, 1982)
A pretty but, I would say, misguided book. The thirty or so engravings from Grandville are very well presented. The putting together of Grandville, who illustrated LaFontaine, with two translators of Aesop has its problems. ...
Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1987)
This 1987 paperback printing seems identical with the 1981 paperback printing. Simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several colored pages besides a number of black-and-whites. The tellings of the tales ...
Fabeln des Äsop
This Insel-book from 1980 offers an opportunity for comparison with the Insel Verlag publication of the same number from the 1930's or just earlier. I have it listed under 1933?. I note the following changes. The covers ...
(Editores Mexicanos Unidos, 1985)
Straightforward presentation of 159 of Aesop's fables with primitive but engaging dot drawings. The collection is preceded by a prologue and followed by a T of C. The book is almost a replica of the same publisher's ...
Fabeln, Märchen, Legenden: Holzschnitte zu Äsop, Prophet Jona, Philipp Otto Runge
(Büchergilde Gutenberg, 1988)
Here is a West German edition of a book published a year earlier in East Germany. This edition, too, was printed in Leipzig. The book has a colorful history, as the colophon page near the end makes clear. A part of the ...
Aesop: Tales of Aethiop the African, Volume I.
(Flying Lion Press: Sea Island Information Group, 1989)
A curious book that badly needs an editor. Punctuation, grammar, and spelling mistakes abound. Even pagination is a mystery: the two-page introduction that starts on ii is followed by a preface listed as on iii. The ...
The Eagle and the Man
(The Wright Group, 1986)
A simple pamphlet by the illustrator of Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables (1986). This fable is not included there. #8 of a set of twelve.
(Easton Press, 1985)
This book seems identical, except for the publisher and the binding, with the 1985 Holt original. If anything, the illustrations here are even sharper than they are there. There is a ribbon to help you remember your place.
