A Type Specimen of Garamont: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Citation Press, 1973)
See my two other editions from Berliner, using Lutetia (1970) and Baskerville (1971). A first page gives a lovely little history of Garamont, which was first created in 1540, only eleven years after French printing first ...
The Tortoise & the Hare
(Little, Brown and Company, 2013)
Pinkney's art is consistent in its style. And his approach to the story here is excellent. One is surprised to move through the book and find very little text. There is only, part by part, sometimes repeated, always ...
(Geo.S. AppletonGeorge S. Appleton, 1848)
I cannot believe the proliferation of distinct Tenniel editions! This one represents a wonderful gift. A quick check has already revealed several illustrations different from, but modeled on, the original 1848 illustrations. ...
The Caldecott Aesop
Lovely stuff, though the pictures are sometimes so bound to the contemporary social and political setting that it is hard for us to see the point. DLS is particularly good, with a skillful modern instance. Valuable ...
The Boy and the Lion
(Ginn and Company, 1983)
This is a well-worn but sympathetic and engaging sixteen-page pamphlet with stiff covers. I love Biro's illustrations. The boy in this booklet is indeed a boy, vaguely African with a cap and a tattered long shirt that ...
Aesop's Fables: The Fox and the Grapes and Other Fables
(Paradise Press, Inc. By arrangement with Ottenheimer Publishers, Inc. ©1995, 1997 Ottenheimer Publishers, Inc., 1997)
The endpapers for all four volumes in this set contain the same four designs, one for each book's title-story. This volume contains FG, GA, DS, and WSC. This may be the first fox I have heard saying that the grapes are ...
The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1962)
It took me five years to find this book! A simple account with nice pictures, told traditionally up until the end where the miller saves his donkey from the river.
(Dover Publications, 1994)
I presume that the text is largely Rundell's. 92 fables with plentiful but simple illustrations. DS has the most obvious reflection-dog I have seen yet. MSA (19) has the donkey perched on the pole the way he is for ...
(David Campbell Publishers Ltd., 1992)
Identical with the adjacent book published as a Borzoi Book by Alfred A. Knopf. This British/European version is published by David Campbell and distrubted by Random House (UK) Ltd. Thus the only difference in the book ...
Lamb Chop's Fables: You Can Do It, Lamb Chop! Featuring Aesop's The Tortoise & The Hare
(Time-Life Custom Pub., 1994)
As with the other volume in the same series, a Lamb Chop puppet came along with this book. TH is narrated by Shari to a dejected Lamb Chop and her dog Huxley when Charley Horse and Hush Puppy will not let them play frisbee ...
