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 ...
Esop Basni: Mythoi Aisopeioi
(Jantarniy Skaz, 1999)

(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1924)
It is hard to believe, but this is the third distinct book I have found now in the Sunshine Series by Ward and Lock. The other two have, respectively, sixteen colored plates and sixteen colored plates plus eight sepia ...
Here is an extra copy of this lavish, well done book. Worth looking at for any of the nine fables she does. Now see 1993 for a reduced-in-page-size paperbound version done by Penguin Puffin. It admits that the text ...
Here is an extra copy of this booklet. Twelve fables are recast with other characters and matched to the months, with pleasing art in the contemporary vein. For example, January has a cat leaping onto--and through--ice ...
Here is an extra copy of this fine pamphlet. Lively sequential cartoons, about six or eight to a fable in this little pamphlet. The art is good and has some spice in its characterization.
The Sly Cormorant and the Fishes
Here is an extra copy of this book. How nice to find another recent adaptation of Aesop! Thirty-nine fables with lively illustrations in color and in black-and-white. Some of the fables are invented, some reconstructed, ...
