Little Tales from Aesop
(Bairns Books Ltd., 1950)
This is a large sixteen-page landscape-formatted pamphlet with various kinds of illustrations for its thirteen fables. The most exciting are the full-page colored illustrations for FS (front cover), DLS, The Cat and the ...
(Uitg. ElectaUitgeverij Electa, 1950)
The bulk of this book is a set of 150 Aesopic fables done into Dutch verse. The fables are divided into these subsets: stories from mythology, animals (alone or with people), humans (alone or with gods), nature, and ...
Fables of Aesop
(Penguin Books, 1954)
The text seems otherwise unchanged from the 1954 first printing. There is a new cover. Note that the reference to Rieu on the very first page has changed. This newer book was cheaper than the older one!
(DoubledayGarden City Books, 1954)
Large and not very impressive pastels. I have at least three different versions of this book, based on criteria of price, dust-jacket back flaps, cover design, and binding. This first version originally cost $2.50, whereas ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952)
T of C. No index. Many one-colored watercolors, with some full-colored pages (listed on 9). Though simple, some of the illustrations are quite attractive. The book is typical of recent editions for kids.
(Elfriede Abbe?, 1950)
The woodcuts are strong, even if the art is not in the style that I would favor. 122 fables. There are 43 illustrations of varying size and configuration, including some that spread across the center page-division (2-3) ...
The Fables of Aesop
A handy volume in great shape. There are two aquatints per story in the familiar Jacobs version: some show good wit, like the tree/stake for Young Thief and Mother on 87. There is a slightly different version and picture ...
(Rand McNally & Company, 1952)
Cuddliness is everything here. A dozen fables. I will keep at least one copy of each version in the collection. Notice the price rise from the third ($.29) to the fourth ($.59) version: over double! I may be fooled ...
Fabeln des Äsop
(Hermann Kuhn KG.s.n.], 1954)
I am including a second copy of this book because I have found a copy dedicated by the artist. The other copy, #455 of 500, is identical and has Gothein's signature with the number at the book's end. This copy, #285 of ...
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 ...
