Aesop's Four Footed Fables
(Star Rover House, 1985)
A strange book combining typed text and crude two-colored illustrations. The best pictures are those of the dog and sow (5) and of the camel looking in the mirror (35). The text of The Cat and the Rats catches the ...
Kettu ja Haikara: Aisopoksen satuia
(WSOYWerner Söderström Osakeyhtiö, 1985)
This book replicates in Finnish the English book Aesop: The Fox and the Stork (1985) from Pelham in London. See my comments there. As in the English, there are twenty fables. Each gets a two-page spread with a full-page ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables Illustrated with Reproductions of Fifteenth Century Woodcuts
(A. Colish, 1988)
This is perhaps an unusual fine edition in that it does not tell where its publisher has his press. The texts of the forty-nine fables seem to be based, at least in part, on James' version of the fables. There are some ...
Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & DunlapPaperback Press, 1981)
Simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several colored pages besides a number of black-and-whites. The tellings of the tales may be most helpful for the clear morals. See the original hardbound versions of 1947.
(Watermill Press, 1985)
The urge to put out cheap editions of Aesop continues! The versions here seem to be bent toward good story-telling. Are they taken from some earlier edition?
(Serhat A.S., 1983)
This is an unassuming Turkish paperback edition of Aesop's fables without illustrations. Fables are offered on 5 through 95. There is neither a T of C nor an AI. Is the fox in the front cover's illustration smoking a ...
Modern Fables: Twenty of Aesop's Fables Brought Up to Date
(Peoples Pub. GroupThe Peoples Publishing Group, Inc., 1987)
This book is a pleasant surprise! It offers engaging versions of twenty basic Aesopic fables in terms that a grade school student of the mid-twentieth-century might well understand. The references are dated now, and ...
Fables By Aesop
This is a large-format (8½ x 11) classroom book of 65 pages. It aims at providing students with the opportunity of sharing in the cultural heritage that Aesop's fables have provided us but without the barriers of complicated ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean]
This book is an earlier duplicate of a book I have listed under 1990. The bibliographical information is, I believe, otherwise the same. This copy, rather than a front cover depicting only GA, has a melange of GA, LM, ...
Aesop: Tales of Aethiop the African, Volume I
(Sea Island Information Group, 1989)
See my comments on the first printing of this curious paperback booklet. I thought then that it needed an editor. The good news is that it found one! A number of problems in the first printing are cleaned up in this ...
