More Fables from Aesop (28C)
(F.A. Owen, 1905)
This is a limp cloth edition and apparently a reissue of the paper-covered edition listed as No. 28 of the Instructor Literature Series by the same publisher in the same year. See my notes there. This booklet does not ...
Aesop's Fables Coloring Album
(Troubador Press: Price/Stern/Sloan, 1986)
This is a later reprinting of Troubador's 1982 coloring album, with about fifteen splendiferous psychedelic pictures to color in. As I mention there, generally the art has lost sight of the story. Troubador found a new ...
(A l'Enseigne du Pot CassePubliée sous la direction de Constantin Castera, 1934)
This is the sort of book for which this collection exists! At first it looks like nothing more than a beaten-up old paperback, remarkable perhaps for the fox who scratches his head on the cover while the stork eats out ...
The Monthly Magazine of the Junior Heritage Club
(The Junior Heritage Club: The Heritage Press, 1946)
Here is a pamphlet helping to market the Leaf and Lawson version of Aesop's Fables. It has three sections on, respectively, Aesop, Lawson, and Leaf. The writer of the first is G.M., while the second and third are ...
The Fables of Aesop Printed from the Veronese edition of 1479 in Latin verses and the Italian version by Accio Zucco, with the woodcuts newly engraved and coloured after a copy in the British Museum
(Editiones Officinae BodoniOfficina Bodoni, 1973)
Read my commentary on the prospectus for this two-volume work under the same title and year, and you will read I doubt that I will ever have anything else from the Officina Bodoni in this collection! Hallelujah! I have ...
Aesop: 12 Fabeln
(BilderbuchstudioMichael Neugebauer Verlag, 1989)
This book is almost identical with the English version I have from 1989 as put out by Picture Book Studio. They share the same size and format. This book has the same cover picture of the dancing camel but lacks the dust ...
Aesop's Fables (Aesops Fables on cover)
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1900)
I include this book separately in the collection because of the publishing curiosities it presents. Basically, it is the same book as that listed under the same title, year, and publisher. It has the same cover illustration ...
Favole di Esopo
(Einaudi Ragazzi, 1994)
This book reproduces in smaller paperback form the 1989 large hardbound book published by Barron. The paperback's size is 4¼ x 7¼; these proportions make for a narrow portrait format, and so the original images are regularly ...
Aesop's Fables: The Miller and His Donkey and The Greedy Dog
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1994)
Here is the first printing of a pamphlet whose republication I have listed under 1995 from the same publisher. Books in this edition and this year cost $2.50. When reprinted a year later, they cost $2.95. See my comments there.
The Fables of Aesop Based on the Texts of L'Estrange and Croxall (larger format: 5½x 7½)
(Thomas Y. Crowell Company, 1903)
These two books use the identical plates used to make the smaller format book published by Crowell in the same year. Thus they have 230 pages and 330 fables. See my comments there. These books have a slightly larger ...
