Early American School Books
(Chandler Press, 1988)
"Pages 6 and 7 of this compendium of samples from "Choice pages from 1785 to 1880" offers two fables. Those two pages are 142-43 of "The Elementary Spelling Book, an improvement on the American Spelling Book" by Noah ...
Fábulas: Esopo, Fedro, Iriarte, Samaniego y Hartzenbusch
(Editorial Andrés Bello, 1983)
"The introduction is well titled "Cinco Fabulistas." I think I could understand immediately choosing the latter three. They are prominent Spanish language fabulists. Why take only Aesop and Phaedrus from the classic ...
Casper the Friendly Ghost: Far-Out Fables
(Tempo Books: Grosset and Dunlap, 1981)
"As I fully expected, this paperback book has nothing to do with Aesopic fables. It contains standard Casper cartoon stories. I read the first, "Every Litter Bit Helps." It is rather a full story, lasting 42 pages. In ...
El Cuervo y la Zorra
(Ediciones A. Saldaña, 1999)
"Once again, things come together from different times and places. In Salamanca in 1986, I found a simple pop-up from a publisher I did not know. Sixteen years later I found a French die-cut presentation of LM done by ...
Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(The World Publishing Co., 1910)
"There is already a copy of this book in the collection, found in 1992. Now some 33 years later, I have found a copy in better condition with a dust jacket. It is hard to believe that the book was printed as early as ...
The Fables of Aesop
(View Productions, Pty Ltd., 1985)
"There was a spate of reprintings of Detmold's "The Fables of Aesop" about the time that copyright on his 1909 edition ran out. This has a larger page format than those others, and it does not paste in his colorful ...
Aisopos: Mikra Klassika Eikonographemena
(Ekdoseis M. Pechlivanidēs & Sia"International Productions Ltd. Vadur, 1955)
This forty-eight page comic book looks a great deal like Classics Illustrated Junior, and that would not be a bad translation anyway of mikra klassika eikonographemena. I am afraid that I am mostly baffled by what I find ...
Hungry Mr. Fox
(Delacorte Press: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, 1989)
Advertised on the back cover as containing delightful twists of Æsop's Tales. The closest Aesopic fables I can remember are about the picky heron (but there the victims get smaller and do no pleading) and about a variety ...
Aesop in the Courts, Volume II
(Law-Arts Publishers, Inc., 1971)
See Volume I under 1971. The stories here seem slightly longer. The three I read are fun.
The Aesop for Children
Here is the first paperback edition of this classic of which I am aware. The edition includes 126 of the original 146 fables. The color presentation of the partial-page illustrations is particularly good. The inked ...
