Famous Stories from Aesop's & Panchatantra
(Dhingra Publishing House, 1980)
This is a strange book. The English and the bookbinding are equally suspect. Strange phrases and typos appear, even as signatures separate from each other. The Foreword has a fragment in its first paragraph. So it is ...
El Gallo, la Zorra y el Perro: Fábula de Esopo
(La Galera, S.A. Editorial, 1981)
Here is a bright, clean book with hard covers telling the UP story. The artist does fine work with the animals' faces here. The fox's early grins are excellent! The dog really does come in this version. There are ...
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)
Here is a fine copy of a book I remember well. I went to Hamburg and spent a week in the university library there preparing comparisons reaching from Romulus to Steinhöwel through Macho to Caxton. This was my very helpful ...
El Leon y el Raton
(Troll Associates, 1981)
See my comments on the English version. I feared after bidding on this booklet that I was purchasing something I already had. Surprise! I was right, but it was in a different language.
Aesop's Fables Coloring Album
(Troubador Press: Price/Stern/Sloan, 1986)
This is a later reprinting of Troubador's 1982 coloring album, with about fifteen splendiferous psychedelic pictures to color in. As I mention there, generally the art has lost sight of the story. Troubador found a new ...
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 ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables Illustrated with Reproductions of Fifteenth Century Woodcuts
(A. Colish, 1988)
This is perhaps an unusual fine edition in that it does not tell where its publisher has his press. The texts of the forty-nine fables seem to be based, at least in part, on James' version of the fables. There are some ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Miser
(The Good Book Press, 1982)
Here is another lovely mini-book from the Good Book Press of Peter and Donna Thomas. I already have their The Old Man and Death from 1986. The present volume came along with The Man and the Lion from 1981. There are two ...

Here is another lovely mini-book from the Good Book Press of Peter and Donna Thomas. I already have their The Old Man and Death from 1986. The present volume came along with The Miser from 1982. There are two linoleum ...
