Ezop & Hollar: Bajky z Ezopovych Fabuli a Brantovych Rospravek Jana Albina ze Sborniku Prostejovskeho Z R. 1557
(Nase VojskoNaše vojsko, 1957)
What a rich collection of images! Organized apparently in three books of Aesop according to Romulus, each containing 20 fables, then 19 new fables, and finally 28 fables attributed to three sources that I cannot make out. ...
Les Subtiles Fables D'Esope, Lyon Mathieu Husz, 1486
(Association Guillaume le Roy, Lyon/Charles Eggimann, ParisC. Eggimann seul dépositaire,, 1926)
Here is an unusual piece of work. It is unstitched as issued and mostly unopened. Its paper covers are torn at the spine. After the colored frontispiece (from a 13th-century Lyon Isopet manuscript), there are 208 ...
C'era una Volta. Esopo-Perrault.
(Arnoldo Mondadori, 1986)
A big book in every way! There are six thematic groups of between seven and fourteen stories each, every group starting with one Perrault story and finishing with the rest from Aesop. The introduction speaks of offering ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(Hurst & Company Publishers, 1900)
Like the adjacent listing from Lupton, this unusual book claims to have art but has none at all! It is paginated and has in fact the same plates as my Hurst Arlington editions listed under 1899? but lacks all the illustrations ...
The Best of Aesop and Other Classic Fables.
(Marshall Cavendish Ltd., 1985)
The illustrations are delightful, witty, colorful, and alive. The best may be for SW, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, and The Lion and the Peacock. The book and the tape work together well verbatim.
As Aesop would say: Fables
(Financial Education Publishers, 1943)
Six fables in a pamphlet that constitutes a major find. There is something weird going on in this book. I have never seen before these fables of Babylon, of Greece, of India, and of Egypt. In the first ...
Las Fábulas de Esopo.
(Editorial Epoca, S.A., 1971)
This is one of the wierder books I have. The wierdness starts with a cover picture stolen backwards from the frontispiece of Fritz Kredel's Aesop's Fables. Next we meet Velasquez' portrait of Aesop. Then we find 318 ...
Schoene Fabeln des Altertums
(Dieterich'sche VerlagsbuchhandlungDieterich'schen Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1954)
Compare with the later editions under 1955/84. By contrast this edition has Anmerkungen instead of Erläuterungen and names Horst Gasse as Dr. in the T of C (100). Though the pagination is the same, the plates are ...
Twenty Four Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists.
(Ernest Benn, 1928)
Identical after the title page with the Dutton edition printed in England (1928?). Most of the illustrations are taken from Gheeraerts' edition from Bruges of 1567 (the three others are from Gheeraerts' work published in ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers, 1904)
This seems to be an exact reprinting of the 1891 version, of which I have a copy. As I mention there, various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). Let ...
