Tolstoi's Aesop's Fables (Hebrew)
(Maḥbarot le-sifrut, 1951)
Here is a modest book of forty-six fables on 51 pages plus a T of C at the end. The blue-ink woodcuts are lovely; they have the look of something stamped into the book by hand. On the whole, they are very nicely done. ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1905)
I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to ...
Mythoi Tou Aisopou (Aesop's Fables)
(D.C. Divry, 1950)
The Greek makes for fun reading, and the verse morals are cute, but I am afraid there is not much here more than evidence that Greeks still relish the stories (and that they are good for teaching!). The illustrations are ...
Corpus Fabularum Aesopicarum.
(Teubner BSB, 1970)
This book apparently includes the addenda and corrigenda of Haas appended in the 1957 edition, which this edition revises (see my comments there). There is an Ordo Fabularum beginning on XXXIII. This fascicle contains ...
City Mouse--Country Mouse.
(Scholastic Book Services, 1970)
Meant for little kids. Pleasant water-colors with cartoon statements. The illustration style is itself that of kids. I enjoy the assemblies in BC. Also included is LM. Packaged with a 33 rpm recording.
(Exeter Books, 1924)
Surprisingly good runs of the reproductions of Rountree's work. This book is closest to the sixteen-illustration edition of 1924? As is typical of Exeter, there is no introductory or bibliographical material.
Folk-Lore and Fable: Aesop, Grimm, Anderson.
(F.P. Collier & Son Corporation, 1909)
This volume, in very good condition, has elements of both my 1909 and my 1909/37/69 editions. With the latter it shares pagination and frontispiece but not the fancy binding. With the former it shares the notation that ...
Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated.
(The World Publishing Co.World Publishing Company, 1910)
This edition is identical, right down to page numbers, with the edition by the World Syndicate Publishing Company with a few changes. The cover is different, the pages thinner, the index at the beginning is dropped, and ...
This book reproduces almost exactly a book I have in English: Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables (1986), a Gallery book from W.H. Smith Publishers. This edition skips the foreword, but its T of C, which borrows 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 ...
