Fabulae Aesopicae (Japanese)
This is a fine recent Aesop book! Some eighteen artists contribute two to four illustrations for each of the fables here. The styles are various and lively. The good illustrations start with what I believe is a whimsical ...
Aesop's Fables [Japanese]
Here is the Japanese version of a book I have liked in its 1990 Korean incarnation. Part of the fun is that the books are mirror opposites: one opens to the left and the other to the right. GA is pictured on the cover. ...
Best of Aesop's Fables (Hebrew)
This is a large-format paperback, about 8½ x 10½, with yellow covers offering designs from Arthur Rackham's 1912 edition of Aesop's fables. The second and third pages from beginning and end are full-page renditions of ...
The Fables of Aesop with 75 Illustrations (Cover: Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated)
(W.B. Conkey Company, 1920)
This book duplicates one I already have in the collection from Homewood Publishing Company. I will list this under the same date as that. In fact, this copy is in better condition than that one and includes the frontispiece ...
Young Life Magazine, December, 1982
(Orthodox Christian Education Commission, Canonical Orthodox Bishops of America, 1982)
This is Volume 18, Number 4 of this magazine For Orthodox Christian Children. The back cover is a full-page black-and-white sketch by Ann Marie Peckham of DS. How nice of Mr. Stangas to think of me! His researches have ...
Aeslet og hunden: 20 fabler af Aesop
Here is the original publication behind the English Aesop: The Donkey and the Dog. It was apparently a sequel to Svend's first book of fables a year earlier, presented as The Fox and the Stork in English. As I mentioned ...
Der Fuchs und die Trauben und sieben weitere Fabeln des Aesop.
(Büchergilde Gutenberg, 1982)
I already have a copy of this book from the Heinrich Ellermann Verlag. That copy has the book's colored illlustration of FG on its cover. This copy from the Büchergilde Gutenberg has instead a green and white OR image ...
(Running Press, 1995)
Here is an extra copy of this little book. This little book includes the same versions of the fourteen well chosen fables as the 1990 edition done in the same format by Running Press. See my comments there. This edition ...
Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(Goldsmith Publishing Co., 1910)
A lovely little edition. Delightful tellings, with good proverbial morals, and lively black-and-white drawings, some in silhouette (e.g., the bald knight on 173). AI at the beginning. Worth special notice: The Fatal ...
Aesop: Fables/Medieval Tales
(Great Books Foundation, 1963)
Two fables per page through 48 pages. Compare with the 1967 version, which is shorter, is mated with different works, and occupies a different place in the GB program. The versions seem to be developed from Jacobs.
