Fabulous Fables: Using Fables with Children.
(Good Year BooksScott Foresman: Harper Collins, 1991)
A very helpful book for second through fourth grades. The introduction mixes up two important things: the number of lessons and the sequence of parts in the book. There are twelve lessons. There is first an overview ...
Fabulas: Desenhos de Wiese
(Companhia Editora Nacional, 1943)
Color illustrated paper boards. Seventy-three fables on 157 pages. My impression is that some develop from Aesop (e.g., A Cigarra e as duas Formigas, 9), while most are pretty straightforwardly Aesopic (e.g., A Galinha ...
Famous Fables in Modern Verse
(Nelson and Sons, 1920)
Good graphics for the fifteen fables in a nice small book.
A Book of Fables
(Thomas Nelson & Sons Ltd., 1935)
This book is identical with another in the collection except for a few features. Like that book, it uses the plates used in my apparent first edition of Jack Orr's Aesop's Fables, which I have listed under 1927? Please ...
The Fables of Odo of Cheriton
(Syracuse University Press, 1985)
Odo died in 1247. This work is a curious and engaging congeries of scripture, Aesop, Reynard and other typical sources of medieval literature. The focus seems more on allegory than on fable or even on story. Are these ...
Aesop's Fables/Greek Myths/Bible Stories.
(Si-Sa-Mun-Hwa-SaSisa Munhwasa, 1978)
Ten fables with Korean footnotes, many with clever Checkup exercises at the bottom of the page. The tellings and the art are both traditional, apparently borrowed from a standard source (not Jacobs). The illustration ...
(Hagy¿¿nsaHak-Yon-Sa Publishing Company, 1976)
One simple illustration for each of the twenty fables, which include several (35-42) non-Aesopic stories. The wolf does not eat the lamb (11). There are English Helps to Study after the fables. Both the texts and ...
Fábulas de Esopo/Vida de Esopo/Fábulas de Babrio.
(Editorial Gredos, 1978)
My first Spanish find, on my first day in Madrid. My guess is that the Spanish translations are accurate and careful. Sixteen illustrations, most from the Zaragossa Ysopet; they seem to be identical with the Ulm woodcuts. ...
Favorite Fables and Fairy Tales
(Bracken Books, 1988)
This child's book seems to overlap extensively with Favorite Fables, done by the same people one year earlier. There is no mention here of Amanda Atha, even though the texts I have checked seem to be identical. The fables ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers, 1904)
This seems to be an exact reprinting of the 1891 version, of which I have a copy. As I mention there, various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). Let ...
