Aesop's Fables [for the Children]
(Epworth Press J. Alfred Sharp,J. Alfred Sharp: the Epworth Press, 1920)
A remarkable find in very good condition. Fifty-two fables, listed in a T of C at the beginning. No numbers on the pages. Four full-color inserted pages of rather simple art ( The Cock, the Fox and the Dog on the ...
(Hallmark Editions, 1971)
Attractive. The pictures are cute, but I am not sure which I could use. The narratives are okay. The black-background frontispiece is very attractive. There are unusual colors in the TMCM illustration (4). After seeing ...
Lions and Lobsters and Foxes and Frogs.
(Young Scott Books, 1971)
First found in 1991 after years of searching! A wonderful, witty presentation combining Rees' tellings (from his earlier Fables from Aesop, 1966) and Gorey's pictures. Do not miss The Impatient Fox. There is always ...
A nice source. Do not miss the index of illustrations at the back. The text seems to be exactly the same as Hausrath and Perry.
(Avenel Books: Crown Publishing Co., 1912)
T of C and list of illustrations. Many fables! The T of C goes on at length! The black-and-white illustrations are well done, but the colored are not well presented here. They look a bit drab.
Aesop's Frog Fables
(Peter & Donna Thomas, 1990)

(Wordsworth ClassicsWordsworth Editions Ltd, 1912)
Several years ago I found in London a very inexpensive (£.90) paperback reproduced in 1995 from material in the Rackham/Jones edition of 1912. Now I have hit the other end of the financial spectrum in this country. I ...
Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
This lovely reproduction in exaggerated portrait format (4¾ x 8½) is a mystery to me. It presents very traditional rectangular illustrations, one for each of the 117 fables. They seem to be signed by I Raymond. But I ...
Zehn Fabeln des Aesop
Each of the ten fables here has one, two, or three small woodcuts colored in green and black. Most are about 2 square. The best of them include TB, FC, and Fabel vom Pfau und der Göttin. Pferd, Rind, Hund und Mensch has ...
Aesop's Fables: The Fox and the Grapes and other stories
(Dreamland Publications, 1997)
Was this bright color work done in India? This is an oversized 8½ x 11 presentation of four fables. The fox in FG is female. The expression of frustration and anger on her face on the final page of FG is well done. The ...
