Aesop's Fables [Korean]
This book is an earlier duplicate of a book I have listed under 1990. The bibliographical information is, I believe, otherwise the same. This copy, rather than a front cover depicting only GA, has a melange of GA, LM, ...
Aesop: Tales of Aethiop the African, Volume I
(Sea Island Information Group, 1989)
See my comments on the first printing of this curious paperback booklet. I thought then that it needed an editor. The good news is that it found one! A number of problems in the first printing are cleaned up in this ...
Aesop's Fables (Chinese)
(Shan bian chu ban sheSunbeam Publications, 1989)
There are several curious features about this lovely paperback gift that Andreas brought back from Hong Kong. The first, of course, is that there are about ten words of English in the whole book! The second is that there ...
(Watermill Press, 1985)
The urge to put out cheap editions of Aesop continues! The versions here seem to be bent toward good story-telling. Are they taken from some earlier edition?
Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & DunlapPaperback Press, 1981)
Simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several colored pages besides a number of black-and-whites. The tellings of the tales may be most helpful for the clear morals. See the original hardbound versions of 1947.
Here are thirty-six fables on some 119 pages, followed by an AI and a list of the fifty-six books in the Citli Cocuk Klasikleri Dizisi series; La Fontaine is #2. Could that be the Serhat volume I have listed under 1984? ...
Aesop's Fables: A Selection
(The Acorn Press, 1982)
I got very lucky as I ducked into an unlikely shop featuring mostly new books and publishers' remainders. A bookcase of older and used books included two treasures. (The other is a pamphlet from Verona by Giovanni ...
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 ...
Fabeln von Aesop
(Sonderausgabe für den Gondrom Verlag[Gondrom], 1981)
Here is the German version of a pop-up book the English version of which I have, published by Brown Watson in 1975. As there, the copyright here belongs to Artia from 1975. The texts here follow that Brown Watson edition ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables Illustrated with Reproductions of Fifteenth Century Woodcuts
(A. Colish, 1988)
This is perhaps an unusual fine edition in that it does not tell where its publisher has his press. The texts of the forty-nine fables seem to be based, at least in part, on James' version of the fables. There are some ...
