Mon Grand Livre de Fables d'Ésope
(Tournesol S.A.R.L., 1989)
The original copyright on this book (1989) belongs to Susaeta in Madrid, who also printed the book. This is a large (slightly under 8½ x 11) hardbound book with delightful colored illustrations for each of its eighty ...
(J.M. Dent & Sons Limited, 1980)
I first found this book in its Japanese version, the edition published by Nishimura Shoten in 1990. Here, as there, twenty fables are presented in two styles, sometimes both used effectively on one fable: pastel full-color ...
Aesop's Fables: Selected and Told Anew by Joseph Jacobs
(Capricorn Press, 1984)
This is a fresh rendition of MacMillan's 1964 edition of Jacobs and Levine. Clifton Fadiman's essay from that edition has dropped. So has the portion of the title that claimed a tracing of the fables' history. Added are ...
(Picture Book Studio, 1989)
Another victory for Neugebauer. A wonderful book. Zwerger's twelve ink-and-wash illustrations are witty and delightful. The best illustration features the camel dancing and the animals laughing. Other good illustrations ...
(Checkerboard Press, 1989)
Almost identical with the most recent Brimax edition, Aesop's Fables: A Collection of Aesop's Fables (1981/84/88) by the same author and illustrator. There are some differences here: the title graphics on the cover, the ...
Kettu ja Haikara: Aisopoksen satuia
(WSOYWerner Söderström Osakeyhtiö, 1985)
This book replicates in Finnish the English book Aesop: The Fox and the Stork (1985) from Pelham in London. See my comments there. As in the English, there are twenty fables. Each gets a two-page spread with a full-page ...
Fables of Aesop
(Choun Moon Wha SA, 1988)
Clearly related to Choun's bilingual Fables of Aesop (1980/88), even down to the book's size and cover art. Again, the first 203 of Handford's 207 fables are presented, with the same footnotes. An analysis of the footnote ...
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Choun Publishing Co.Cho¿Ưn Munhwasa, 1980)
Now here is a fascinating book. It is a new edition (with 203 fables) based on the 1979 edition (which had 130). Apparently both used S.A. Handford's Penguin texts. This book simply photocopies them (with a few inserted ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean Bilingual]
(Sam Joong Dang Publications Co. Ltd.Samjungdang, 1987)
A nicely produced paperback. T of C at the beginning. Ninety-seven fables. Some fables have morals, while others do not. I thought the T of C and texts might be lifted from a normal English edition, but inspection ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 1 (D12)
(Chigy*ongsaGe Kyoung Sa, 1988)
About 120 fables, most with simple black-and-white illustrations. The book begins with many fox stories. The best illustration may be that of crabs on parallel courses on 147.
