Aesop: 12 Fabeln
(BilderbuchstudioMichael Neugebauer Verlag, 1989)
This book is almost identical with the English version I have from 1989 as put out by Picture Book Studio. They share the same size and format. This book has the same cover picture of the dancing camel but lacks the dust ...
Fabeln von Aesop
(Sonderausgabe für den Gondrom Verlag[Gondrom], 1981)
Here is the German version of a pop-up book the English version of which I have, published by Brown Watson in 1975. As there, the copyright here belongs to Artia from 1975. The texts here follow that Brown Watson edition ...
The Ass in the Pond
(Ginn and Company Ltd., 1984)
Here is a engaging eight-page pamphlet with stiff covers. It tells the story directly and even sparsely. Do not miss the smile on the ass's face on 5 when he has lost most of his salt. Then notice his chagrined look on ...
Aesop's Fables (Chinese)
(Shan bian chu ban sheSunbeam Publications, 1989)
There are several curious features about this lovely paperback gift that Andreas brought back from Hong Kong. The first, of course, is that there are about ten words of English in the whole book! The second is that there ...
Recueil Général des Isopets, Tome Troisième: L'Esope de Julien Macho
(Société des Anciens Textes Français: A. et J. Picard et Cie, 1982)

Fabulas de Esopo
(Ediciones CoquitoIberia S.A., 1981)
This book of 126 pages has four parts, clearly marked out in the T of C at the end. It may be in the same series as my 1989 Fabulas de Samaniego from Susaeta by way of Suromax. I have long been a fan of Mordillo's ...
Las Mejores Fabulos de Todos los Tiempos: Esopo, Fedro, La Fontaine, Iriarte, Samaniego
(Producción Editorial Dante, S.A., 1988)
Here is a standard inexpensive paperback fable edition. I find both the title and the selections curious. The title surely claims a great deal in its phrase de Todos los Tiempos! Five fabulists cover all ages! The ...
Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & DunlapPaperback Press, 1981)
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 may be most helpful for the clear morals. See the original hardbound versions of 1947.
Aesop's Fables: A Selection
(The Acorn Press, 1982)
I got very lucky as I ducked into an unlikely shop featuring mostly new books and publishers' remainders. A bookcase of older and used books included two treasures. (The other is a pamphlet from Verona by Giovanni ...
