Four revealing moments in the visual intersection of religion and fables
(Rabbi Myer and Dorothy Kripke Center, Creighton University, 2012)
Treasury of Aesop's Fables
(Avenel BooksCrown Publishing, 1973)
No index or T of C. Very small engravings, probably too small to be of use. The text may be from the eighteenth or nineteenth century, but I cannot find any attribution. A reprint of some of Bewick's art from Select ...
The Fox and the Crow and 10 Other Tales.
(Reader's Digest Services, 1976)
This book omits without comment the last two fables from Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop (1972). Kent is very witty here, as he is in the 1974 sequel. The Gnat and the Bull, FG, and OF are my favorites here. The watercolors ...
The Tortoise and the Hare and The Lion and the Mouse.
(Zokeisha Publications, Ltd., 1976)
The biggest, hardest pages I have ever seen. This book is nearly indestructible. It features soft-sculpture figures photographed in three or four scenes per story. The pictures are enjoyable. LM is better than TH. The ...
Il-Fenek u L-Fekruna u hrejjef ohra
(Klabb Kotba Maltin, 1987)
This is my only book in Maltese! I found it immediately on my first outing from the hotel in Malta. It is identical with The story of the Hare and the Tortoise and other tales with the exception that the T of C here lists ...
(G. Bell and Sons Ltd.,, 1925)
This is a slightly changed reprinting of the original from 1913. Like it, it is a clean copy with good illustrations. The changes come in two areas. I will describe them and then include the pertinent remarks from that ...
Aesop's Fables: The Fox and the Grapes and other stories
(Dreamland Publications, 1997)
Was this bright color work done in India? This is an oversized 8½ x 11 presentation of four fables. The fox in FG is female. The expression of frustration and anger on her face on the final page of FG is well done. The ...
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Kaewon Publishing Co.Kyew¿¿n Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1979)
The versions have some nice language goofs and seem well done. A lovely gift. Compare the new book of the same title published by Choun in 1980/88.
Once in a Wood: Ten Tales from Aesop
(Greenwillow BooksGreenwillow Read-alone Books: a Division of William Morrow and Co., 1979)
A lovely little book I first found at the Milwaukee Public Library. Several black-and-white drawings per story, many of them very well done and lively. The stories are told in very simple fashion.
(Octopus Books, 1979)
Nice huge reproductions of Bewick with the center of the action highlighted in a second color. The coloring-in of Doré's work somehow softens it. The color graphics are distinctive but not entirely successful.
