(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1900)
This book seems to be a surprising congeries of elements from other editions. The front cover has the same central illustration of WC that was used by Donohue on its 1892? edition, which also contains the same apostrophe-less ...
The Hidden Picture Book of Aesop's Fables.
(Boyds Mills PressDistributed by St. Martin's Press, 1995)
It is high time that a good hidden-picture book of the fables appear. This one is good! Thirteen well-told fables, each with a full-page illustration cleverly hiding perhaps a dozen objects. I find the art well done. ...
Das Leben Aesops
(Dieterich'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1974)
A very nicely done little book, with a touch of color on its cloth cover's design and on its spine. The version of the life used is, wisely, that published by Ben Edwin Perry from the tenth-century Manuscript 397 of the ...
Klassicheskaya Basnya (Classic Fables) (Russian): Aesop, LaFontaine, Krylov, Tolsmou, Muhalkov
(Strekosa PressStrekoza-Press, 2004)
Here is a medium-format book (5½ x 8), with a good selection from each of its five contributing fabulists: thirteen fables come from Aesop, fifteen from LaFontaine, twenty from Krylov, fifteen from Tolstoy, and twenty-five ...
Aesop's Fables 4: The Ass, Lion and Cock For Four-Part Chorus of Mixed Voices and Piano Accompaniment
(G. Schirmer, 1979)
This is an unstapled pamphlet of 14 pages, all but 1-2 presenting a musical score. The libretto for this operette, one of ten that make up the Aesop's Fables series, is a combination of L'Estrange's text and Smith's own. ...

This is an unstapled pamphlet of 12 pages, all but 1-2 presenting a musical score. The libretto for this operette, one of ten that make up the Aesop's Fables series, is a combination of L'Estrange's text and Smith's own. ...
Les Fables d'Ésope
(Garnier FréresLibrairie Garnier Frères, 1905)
Here is a translation of 426 fables, some with clearly marked variants. This text is based on Halm's 1901 edition of the fables. There are 333 pages and an AI.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
(Bantam BooksBantam: Doubleday Dell, 1995)
This is a delightful, short, softbound version perhaps most notable for its great rendition of the mice's heads and for the elaboration of mouse-life in both places. For the former, see, e.g., the embrace of the two on ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn and Co., 1894)
This seems to be an exact reprinting of the 1891 version, of which I have a copy. It seems also identical with the 1904 version, of which I also have a copy. Was the series' name in those versions "Classics for Children" ...
Aesop's Fables: New Series: Books for the Bairns.-XXVI
(Review of Reviews Office, 1899)
This is a hard-cover version in better condition than the pamphlet version I have listed under the same title, publisher, author. That listing is under 1899?. Besides the hard covers, this copy has different advertisements ...
