(Reading Disability Clinic, 1970)
This is a curious and delightful find. It is a landscape book about 8½ x 5½ with about half of its spiral binding intact. Another piece of the binding fell away as I was working with this book. I cannot find an indication ...
(Hallmark Editions, 1971)
I already had a copy of this book with a frontispiece whose background is black when I found this copy whose background is white! The book is otherwise identical. Might the printer have had a bad day and forgotten to add ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Harvard Common Press, 1975)
Reprint of the original 1975 hardbound edition. This is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine approaches the fables with real wit. He plays with them. I have to watch out that I do not use too many ...
(Hillside Press, 1974)
A nicely executed miniature, with some pen markings on the title page and elsewhere. Eight fables, each with an illustration. And Aesop is illustrated in the frontispiece. The illustrations are more original than ...
Die Fabels van Aesopus
(H.J.W. Becht, 1975)
This seems to be a Dutch version of The Fables of Aesop: 143 Moral Tales Retold. Lively art. As I mention in the account of the American book, the best of the illustrations are for WC (22-3) and MM (34-5). There is a ...
Aesop's Fables for the Table: Aesop's Cookbook
(Broward Community College Association of Educational Secretaries and Office Personnel, 1979)
Here is a curiosity! This is a regular cookbook, but it has sections, and the heavier paper-stock divider at the beginning of each section has a line drawing of an animal cooking and, on its verso, the text of an Aesopic ...
Stories from Aesop
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Compare this edition with the Uni-Phone Language Institute edition from Korea of 1982. This edition takes the same nine fables and their illustrations but adds color to the latter. See my notes there. Aesop never stands still!
(Editorial AtlantidaEditorial Atlántida, 1972)
Simplicity and straightforwardness mark the versions and the two-color art in this kids' book.
Esopovi Baïky (Ukrainian Aesop's Fables)
This seems to be an earlier collaboration among a team whose work was published by the same company in 1990. Again, the art is typified by a classical bent and by geometric patterns, often echoing those of classical Greek ...
The Fables of Aesop: Selected, told anew and their history traced by Joseph Jacobs
(Godfrey Cave Associates, 1979)
The original of this book was published in 1894 by Macmillan. It has been reprinted quite often, for example by Schocken. This is the best facsimile reprint I have seen. Heighway's brilliant black-and-white work comes ...
