The Fables of Aesop (Cover and spine: Aesop's Fables)
(Albert Whitman, 1925)
Here is a third printing of this unusual book. Its cover is tan cloth. As I mentioned about the first printing, here is a singular find. I had never seen this book before, and I cannot find it mentioned in Hobbs, Quinnam, ...
This copy is internally identical with another in the collection, a gift of Gerry McKevitt, S.J. This copy has a red dust-jacket labelled, on its inside front flap, Book Club Edition. It uses gold ink on the front cover ...
Fables of Aesop
(John Lane The Bodley Head ltd.,, 1926)
A curious book in very good condition. Seven nice duochrome illustrations join excellent engravings that, like the print, are deeply impressed into the paper. The language is often archaic. The fables chosen and versions ...
Mythoi Tou Aisopou
(D.C. Divry, 1950)
See my comments on the 1950/70 edition. By contrast with it, this thinner book lacks the Greek-English vocabulary at the end. This title page shows several curious differences. This edition does not add a parenthetical ...
Fables: Aesop and Others
(London: J.M. Dent/NY: E.P. Dutton, 1913)
A packed little volume, with eighteen chapters divided by author. No illustrations. Good modern versions of people like Caxton. This book has been very helpful in preparation of the course on fables this past semester. ...
(W.B. Conkey, 1930)
This book is absolutely identical with the Homewood edition (1930?) of the same title except for the presence here of a frontispiece colored from Billinghurst's The Fox and the Goat. That same colored illustration ...
Aesop's Fables (Japanese)
(Iwanami Shoten, 1955)
The series format reminds one of Penguin books in English. Twenty black-and-white illustrations decorate the text along the way. Particularly good are those for DLS (199) and for FS (31), also in color on the (Eastern) ...
Aesop's Fables (Japanese)
With one addition, these seem to be the fables and illustrations chosen for the Kodansha edition Animal Fables of 1993. See my comments there. This edition adds OF to that book's ten fables. This book may have the ...
Aisopou Mythoi (Greek)
(Adelphon Konstantinide[Ekdoseis Adelphōn Kōnstantinidē], 1966)
Imagine my surprise at finding a serious modern Greek presentation of Aesop in Tokyo! There are 358 fables without notes or commentary after a short introduction on Aesop and fables. AI at the back.
(The Franklin Library, 1984)
A curious, pretty, expensively-bound book with leather and gilt and a sewn-in place-mark. I will be interested to compare it to the edition that Franklin did two years earlier with the same authors (and the same translations?) ...
