Aesop's Fables for Modern Readers
(Peter Pauper Press, 1941)
My, Peter Pauper Press has been busy getting mileage from their 1941 edition. This one is smaller in format, has sixty-one instead of ninety pages, and contains ninety-six of the 122 fables and almost all of the twenty ...
Fables from Aesop and Others
(Transatlantic Arts, 1944)
A beautiful book that I had read about in Ash and Higton's Aesop's Fables: A Classic Illustrated Edition (1990) but had had little hope of finding. They give the 1944 date, which I cannot find in the book itself. The ...
As Aesop would say: Fables
(Financial Education Publishers, 1943)
Six fables in a pamphlet that constitutes a major find. There is something weird going on in this book. I have never seen before these fables of Babylon, of Greece, of India, and of Egypt. In the first ...
Aesop's Animal Fables
(Broadland Inc.,, 1945)
I think the combination of a book and a game is a first in this collection. The game, with a punch-out spinning arrow and markers, actually has nothing to do with Aesop or fables. The most amazing thing about this simple ...
(Ernst Heimeran VerlagErnst Hemeran, 1944)
Urtext und Übertragung. This paperback book is especially valuable because Hausrath himself did one of the standard texts of Aesop in the original. His translations have to be helpful. This book is bilingual on facing ...
Aesop's Fables for Young People
(W. Foulsham & Co. Ltd.,, 1945)
About 240 fables are arranged in alphabetical order, each with an italicized moral at the end. Thus we go from Aesop Plays to Young Mole and Her Mother. There are about twelve black-and-white illustrations of an ...
(Golden Galley Press Limited, 1948)
I had found this book earlier, but that copy did not have the four colored plates, and this copy does. They are delightful! Heavy on aqua and salmon tones, they depict OF (frontispiece), The Ant and the Fly (32), The Fox ...
Ésope: Fables choisies
(Librairie A. Hatier, 1947)
Here is a pamphlet for learning Greek. Its first 52 pages introduce Aesop and his fables and then offer forty-five fables of increasing length and complexity. Copious footnotes explain grammar. Vocabulary runs then from ...
The eagle & the fox & the fox and the eagle: two semantically symmetrical versions followed by a revised application
(Gaberbocchus Press Limited, 1949)
This wild and wonderful presentation had been on my want list since I saw it in the Heffelfinger Collection in Minneapolis. Princeton Antiques' notice to me was the first time I had heard that it was available. Though ...
a Fox & a Sick Lion
(Corydon Press, Indiana University, 1944)
A beautifully executed and preserved piece of work. L'Estrange's version is typically direct and involving. Low's colored wood-cut is bold and dramatic. For more of his work, see Harvest of World Folk Tales (1949/55).
