(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1900)
This book seems to be a surprising congeries of elements from other editions. The front cover has the same central illustration of WC that was used by Donohue on its 1892? edition, which also contains the same apostrophe-less ...
The Hidden Picture Book of Aesop's Fables.
(Boyds Mills PressDistributed by St. Martin's Press, 1995)
It is high time that a good hidden-picture book of the fables appear. This one is good! Thirteen well-told fables, each with a full-page illustration cleverly hiding perhaps a dozen objects. I find the art well done. ...
Das Leben Aesops
(Dieterich'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1974)
A very nicely done little book, with a touch of color on its cloth cover's design and on its spine. The version of the life used is, wisely, that published by Ben Edwin Perry from the tenth-century Manuscript 397 of the ...
Aesop's Fables 4: The Ass, Lion and Cock For Four-Part Chorus of Mixed Voices and Piano Accompaniment
(G. Schirmer, 1979)
This is an unstapled pamphlet of 14 pages, all but 1-2 presenting a musical score. The libretto for this operette, one of ten that make up the Aesop's Fables series, is a combination of L'Estrange's text and Smith's own. ...
Aesop's Fables 2: The Raven and the Fox For Four-Part Chorus of Mixed Voices and Piano Accompaniment
(G. Schirmer, 1979)
This is an unstapled pamphlet of 12 pages, all but 1-2 presenting a musical score. The libretto for this operette, one of ten that make up the Aesop's Fables series, is a combination of L'Estrange's text and Smith's own. ...
Les Fables d'Ésope
(Garnier FréresLibrairie Garnier Frères, 1905)
Here is a translation of 426 fables, some with clearly marked variants. This text is based on Halm's 1901 edition of the fables. There are 333 pages and an AI.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
(Bantam BooksBantam: Doubleday Dell, 1995)
This is a delightful, short, softbound version perhaps most notable for its great rendition of the mice's heads and for the elaboration of mouse-life in both places. For the former, see, e.g., the embrace of the two on ...
(Ward Lock & Co., Limited,, 1920)
Here is a fragile book of 256 pages. As the opening T of C shows, there are 58 fables. This is the only non-illustrated edition I have of Blanche Winder's work. Normally her texts are associated with the visual work of ...
(Golden Galley Press Limited, 1948)
I had found this book earlier, but that copy did not have the four colored plates, and this copy does. They are delightful! Heavy on aqua and salmon tones, they depict OF (frontispiece), The Ant and the Fly (32), The Fox ...
(Brown & Bigelow, 1935)
Seven fables are offered here in a deteriorating pamphlet. LM, The Hare and the Rooster, Father and Son Bear, The Monkey and the Bananas, The Little Boy and the Crocodile, The Fox and the Bear, and The Chicken and the ...
