(Harvard University Press, 1967)
A valuable book for which I sought a long time. I was amazed to find it in this downtown San Diego store whose owner thought he had nothing for me. The introduction gives a clear picture of the provenance of Caxton's ...
(C. R. Gibson Co., 1968)
Delightful both in its verse and its drawings. Worth looking over for something that can be used. The text and the drawings are well integrated. The texts have some spice. The hare ends up holding up the fox reaching ...
Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
This lovely reproduction in exaggerated portrait format (4¾ x 8½) is a mystery to me. It presents very traditional rectangular illustrations, one for each of the 117 fables. They seem to be signed by I Raymond. But I ...
Use the AI at the back. Table of illustrations on 19. The illustrations have a simple charm, but I think that one of them is enough for a good illustrated lecture. Do not miss Tinkelman's dust jacket illustration up and ...

The same material one finds in the standard Doubleday editions (1968) with the exception of Singer's introduction and the AI at the back. The print is larger, the order of fables is rearranged, and there seem to be fewer of them.
(California State Department of EducationCalifornia State Dept. of Education, 1964)
Identical with my 1964 Random House copy except for the change in publisher on the title page and the California State Textbook stamp inside the front cover. It belonged to the Emerson Elementary School. This copy, like ...
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1964)
I am delighted to see that this series brought back an author and an illustrator so important earlier in the tradition but not known well now. I may have more copies of these two men's work than of any other pair. Both ...
Here is the $1.50 version of this book, which had $.50 and $1.25 printings. As I wrote of the earlier printing, this book is a great example of the basic cheap edition of Aesop, this book does not admit who its illustrator ...
