The Tortoise and the Hare and other stories from Aesop's Fables retold for very young readers.
(Spring Books, 1935)
This book is exactly identifical with another done by Hampster Books, for which I have guessed the same year of 1935. Let me note the differences. Printed in Czechoslovakia was placed there underneath the frontispiece ...
The Fables of Aesop and The Original Fables of La Fontaine
(London: J.M. Dent and Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton, 1939)
This volume lets us see publishers at work. I have--under 1915?--this publisher's Aesop's Fables, which is included here almost without change. I have five different copies of The Original Fables of La Fontaine, which ...
(Nelson Éditeurs,, 1933)
This book seems to be one-quarter the size of the English version of Orr's book, for which I have guessed a date of 1927, but it is really two-thirds of its size, having 60 pages to the 96 pages of the English edition. ...
(Herbert Joseph LTD, 1935)
Fifty-two fables in a small-format book (3¾ x almost 5½). The frontispiece is a simple colored presentation of FS. Morals are italicized. The book's condition is fair. There are no surprises here!
Aesop's Movie Fables (Green and Red Cover): Cartoons, Stories, Song, Laughs, Morals, Fun, Movie Flips
(Sonnet Publishing Co., 1931)
This item is identical with an earlier find except for two important differences. First, this large pamphlet has a green and red cover differently designed from that white cover of a cat showing a movie to children. ...
Ocht Sgealta o Aesop: Rang III, Ard-chursa, agus, Rang IV, Bun-chursa
(Macmillan agus a Gcomhlucht, Teo.ar n-a fhoillsiú do mhuinntir Ch. S. Ó Fallamhain Teo.,, 1935)
Gaelic readers will be able to understand more from the bibliographical data for this book than I can. I can see that it is a reader -- perhaps a school reader for the third and fourth grades? -- of some 32 pages offering ...
Fabeln des Äsop Nach Steinhöwels Erneuertem Esopus
(Graphische Kunstdruckerei Gebr. FeylGrapische Kunstdruckerei Gebrüder Feyl, 1938)
The texts here come from an Insel publication, perhaps published in or about 1933. Insel's own book then used illustrations after those of Vergil Solis. Here we have instead Wassili Masjutin's excellent woodcuts: WC (5); ...
Three Animal Fables Selected from Aesop.
(Thorsons Publishers, 1930)
A delightful find. The pages are not numbered, and the binding is weak. Alternating black-and-white and color illustrations. The lion and hare drawings sometimes end up slightly odd. LM features a Do not disturb sign ...
Aesop's Fables No. 1
This is a curious little landscape pamphlet with paper wraps and twelve very thin interior pages. On both covers a dapper cigar-smoking mouse faces a country hick mouse with a shepherd's crook. After the inside front ...
(A.F. Formiggini EditoreKarolis F. Formiggini, 1930)
The great claim of this book is that it presents all of del Tuppo's illustrations for the fables. It is a pleasure to find this paperbound book in fair to good condition. The printing of the illustrations is not superior ...
