Fables Written in Gregg Shorthand with Shorthand Penmanship Pointers. Reprinted from The Gregg Writer
(Reprinted from the Gregg writer, 1940)
This pamphlet, 3¼ x 6¼, contains one fable per page over pages 3-52. A lovely note from Judy Newman accompanies the pamphlet: This belonged to John's mom--just the sort of quirky little thing she would get a kick out of. ...
My First Book of Fables
(The Children's Press, 1949)
I had thought this book was identical internally with the book of the same title published by Collins (1950?). See my comments there. There are actually many differences. This book adds four fables for a total of fourteen. ...
(Choun Publishing, 1982)
Forty fables with simple illustrations (the same used as cover art in other Choun editions of 1980/88 and 1988). The text, the art, and the typeset differ in the first twenty and the last twenty fables. Many in the first ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean Bilingual]
(Sam Joong Dang Publications Co. Ltd.Samjungdang, 1987)
A nicely produced paperback. T of C at the beginning. Ninety-seven fables. Some fables have morals, while others do not. I thought the T of C and texts might be lifted from a normal English edition, but inspection ...
Los Dos Ratoncitos.
(Editorial Vasco Americana, 1973)
A falling-apart kids' version. Not particularly good drawings.
[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Mun Gong Sa, 1989)

A second book of Aesop's Fables
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. The Wolves and the Dogs is here but not in the larger-format book.
More Aesop's Fables
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975)
The sequel to Aesop's Fables (1975?). The price is marked in British currency. This book features rather long (eight-page) renditions of the fables, sometimes with expressive faces. The best might be GA. I have come ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2 (D13)
(Ge Kyoung Sa, 1988)
About 120 fables, most with simple black-and-white illustrations. The book begins with many lion, ass, and wolf stories. The last few pages have advertisements for computer and children's books.
This is a typical Japanese fable book as I have come to know them. I am guessing that it is in a series of twenty-five books. They are listed on the last page, which for Western readers is where we look for the first ...
