Children and Books, Fourth Edition
(Scott Foresman and Company,, 1947)
A goldmine of comment and bibliography. Excellent introduction to Aesop, the Panchatantra, the Jatakas, and LaFontaine with good examples. Good annotated bibliographies. There are a few examples of the art used in Aesopic ...
Fedro: Fábulas Esópicas.
Straight Latin poetic texts. Indices at the back.
The Father, his Son and their Donkey/Hermes and the Wood-cutter/The Rich Man and his Servant.
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Nice changes inculturate these fables: Ibrahim and Ali are given native skin and clothing. Hermes becomes the god of a river. The servant and the rich man con each other.
Once Upon A Time: The Fairy Tale World of Arthur Rackham.
(Viking Press, 1972)
This work contains excellent reproductions of Rackham's art for Aesop (235-48) and other subjects. In fact they are the best reproductions of Rackham that I have seen, particularly the colored work. After five pages of ...
The Fox and the Crow and 10 Other Tales.
(Reader's Digest Services, 1976)
This book omits without comment the last two fables from Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop (1972). Kent is very witty here, as he is in the 1974 sequel. The Gnat and the Bull, FG, and OF are my favorites here. The watercolors ...
Aesop: His Book
(James Cummings, 1973)

[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, ...
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...

(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 ...
