(Pavilion Books, 1992)
A very pleasing book available from this publisher only in the United Kingdom. See the adjacent listing for the first U.S. edition. Salter was born in Cairo, and her art here is in a primitive style after that of Persian ...
(Alfred A. KnopfDistributed by Random House, 1992)
I have wanted a Gooden Aesop since I found his La Fontaine edition (1931) four months ago. This book does not seem to mention Gooden's 1936 limited edition of 525 copies done by George Harrap using L'Estrange's version. ...
(Ellēnika GrammataHellenika Grammata, 1995)
Here is a beautifully produced little book. It is almost square, about 5¾ on a side and has 129 pages. After a short section on Aesop and his fables, there are forty-seven fables, illustrated by the Ulm woodcuts or by ...
The Children's Aesop
(Caroline House/Boyds Mills Press, 1992)
Well done! Twenty-eight fables generally given two pages apiece for the tale and the picture, with a moral clearly boxed in a different color at the end. Well told, especially for children, with morals that make sense, ...
Aesop's Fables: A Classic Illustrated Edition.
(Chronicle Books, 1990)
A truly magnificent book--not that different from a book I would have liked to publish someday! Excellent black-and-white and color illustrations. The five-page introduction gives a good overview of the history of Aesop ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean]
I like this book, principally for its vivid color reproductions. Four stories: TMCM, GA (maybe the best art), The Bat and the Birds and the Animals (a Korean favorite), and LM (the poorest art). The back cover reverses 15.
De fabels van Aisopos
(Uitgeverij SUN, 1997)
This is a beautiful little book! How nice of Gert-Jan to inscribe it For Greg, as a souvenir of our fabulous meetings and discussions on Aesop's genre and to send it. Now I only wish I could read it! There is one fable ...
Aesop's Frog Fables
(Peter & Donna Thomas, 1990)
A beautifully executed book. I like the letterpress printing. The print and the versions are very attractive; I find the nine illustrations somewhat disappointing: they lack the wit or characterization one might have ...
Aesop's Fables: The Fox and the Grapes and other stories
(Dreamland Publications, 1997)
Was this bright color work done in India? This is an oversized 8½ x 11 presentation of four fables. The fox in FG is female. The expression of frustration and anger on her face on the final page of FG is well done. The ...
The Ant and the Grasshopper
(Houghton Mifflin Company, 1991)
This is a full-sized 16-page pamphlet. The illustrations are double-page spreads with simple lines, like The Ant worked. The grasshopper didn't (3). Pages 4-5 show delight in the multi-limbed character of both insects. ...
