The Fables of Aesop
(Dorset Press, 1975)
This is a clear, crisp reprinting -- with almost no margins -- of Gambit's great book of 1975. The illustrations are still wonderful! As I wrote there, this is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine ...
Aesop's Fables in Irish--Parts I to V
(The Irish Book Company, 1909)
Fifty fables and a vocabulary that stretches almost longer than the fables! Sorry. Since I cannot read this text, I do not have much more to say!
(Unicorn Publishing House, 1992)
This book makes a curious study in the movement from an original to a cheaper children's book. The sharp acrylics of Sturrock's 1988 edition have lost something here. The thirty fables there have become nineteen here. ...
The Fables of Aesop in Words of One Syllable.
(Henry Altemus Co., 1900)
This book is a triumph of pirating! The very first story, WL, comes straight from Godolphin. Note that Altemus has used the same text in The Fables of Aesop (1899), both in and outside the Altemus' Young People's Library ...
Aesop's Fables With a Life of Aesop
(The University Press of KentuckyUniversity of Kentucky Press, 1993)
An excellent book and a valuable resource. A good introduction leads up to placing Hurus' book in history. Good comments on the history and traditions. Rinuccio translated Planudes from Greek into Latin in about 1450. ...
The Aesop for Children
Here is the first paperback edition of this classic of which I am aware. The edition includes 126 of the original 146 fables. The color presentation of the partial-page illustrations is particularly good. The inked ...
The story of the Hare and the Tortoise and other tales.
(Peter Haddock, 1988)
Surprises continue. I thought I was buying an extra copy of a book I already had. I do have it in exactly the same form, but from Gallery Books in New York. So here is the earlier British edition. Check my comments ...
(London: William Heinemann/NY: Doubleday, Page, and Co., 1912)
T of C and list of illustrations. Both the colored and black-and-white illustrations are very well done. The colored illustrations come alive in this early edition, e.g., The Crab and His Mother, The Blackamoor, 2P, Venus ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Printing Department, Wolverhampton College of Art, 1953)
What a beautiful gift! Sharp translations of 118 fables are accompanied by thirteen lovely black-and-white engravings and monochrome and two-color washes. My favorites among the illustrations are of the old woman and her ...
Aesop's Fables, with 100 Illustrations
(J.B. Lippincott, 1916)
This book represents a major find, for which I am strongly indebted to Mary. This copy got me going on a major project, and I found Opper worthy of careful analysis. See my extensive comments on the first edition (1916). ...
