Aesop's Frog Fables
(Peter & Donna Thomas, 1990)
A beautifully executed book. I like the letterpress printing. The print and the versions are very attractive; I find the nine illustrations somewhat disappointing: they lack the wit or characterization one might have ...
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 ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Volume 1
(Mun Gong SaMunʼgongsa, 1990)
This book is typical of recent Korean work. One design echoes the facing full page. The art is bright, sometimes strong and lively, sometimes only cute. There are four fables here: TMCM, GA, The Axe-Loser, and The Bat, ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean]
I like this book, principally for its vivid color reproductions. Four stories: TMCM, GA (maybe the best art), The Bat and the Birds and the Animals (a Korean favorite), and LM (the poorest art). The back cover reverses 15.
[Korean] Stories of Wisdom, Volume 2
(Youn GinYunjin Munhwasa, 1990)
Eighteen fables done with strong art (typical of recent spate of Korean editions of Aesop) that ranges from lively to cute. There is an excellent composite picture with T of C. The best in this volume are The Big Fish ...
De fabels van Aisopos
(Uitgeverij SUN, 1997)
This is a beautiful little book! How nice of Gert-Jan to inscribe it For Greg, as a souvenir of our fabulous meetings and discussions on Aesop's genre and to send it. Now I only wish I could read it! There is one fable ...
(Bloomsbury Books, 1994)
Here are 143 fables, each starting on a new page, in a simple paperback claimed by no author. A quick test of the texts does not reveal a standard source. A long T of C at the beginning lists each fable. There are no ...
Der Magdeburger Prosa-Äsop: Eine mittelniededeutsche Bearbeitung von Heinrich Steinhöwels 'Esopus' und Niklas von Wyles 'Guiscard und Sigismunda': Text und Unersuchungen
(Böhlau Verlag, 1996)
The sub-title tells the most important information, for me, about this book. It deals -- in part -- with one of the many offshoots of Steinhöwels Esopus. Like so many of the others, this one is in a particular language ...
(Ellēnika GrammataHellenika Grammata, 1995)
Here is a beautifully produced little book. It is almost square, about 5¾ on a side and has 129 pages. After a short section on Aesop and his fables, there are forty-seven fables, illustrated by the Ulm woodcuts or by ...
(Ediciones DestinoEditions Destino, 1990)
This book comes straight from the original Michael Neugebauer Verlag publication in German language of 1989. It has the same format and the same art work. That -- at least my copy of the third edition in 1993 -- was ...
