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 ...
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) ...
Schoene Fabeln des Altertums
(Dieterich'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1955)
Nice titles give the point (but not the characters) of each fable. The two vignettes face the title page (FG, well done) and the beginning of the collection. The extra copy differs in having an ISBN number, a different ...
12 Fables of Aesop
(Museum of Modern Artdist. by Doubleday & Company, 1954)

This fifth edition is identical with the fourth except for changes in the price and in the color and setup of the front and back covers.

(Editorial Diana, S.A., 1952)
This is a colorfully covered book of 121 pages of fables on poor and fragile paper. About every five pages there is a full-page line-drawing in black-and-white. These line-drawings are quite straightforward. The texts ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Printing Department, Wolverhampton College of Art, 1953)
What a beautiful gift! Sharp translations of 118 fables are accompanied by thirteen lovely black-and-white engravings and monochrome and two-color washes. My favorites among the illustrations are of the old woman and her ...
