Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(The World Publishing Co., 1910)
"There is already a copy of this book in the collection, found in 1992. Now some 33 years later, I have found a copy in better condition with a dust jacket. It is hard to believe that the book was printed as early as ...
The Fables of Aesop
(View Productions, Pty Ltd., 1985)
"There was a spate of reprintings of Detmold's "The Fables of Aesop" about the time that copyright on his 1909 edition ran out. This has a larger page format than those others, and it does not paste in his colorful ...
fabulas de Esopo 2
There are several surprises among the "Aesopic" fables in this little volume. Those from Aesop include BC; "The Fox and the Eagle"; WC; "The Angler and the Little Fish"; and "The Dog Invited to a Banquet." The second ...
The Children's Picture Fable-Book Containing One Hundred and Sixty Fables
(Harper & Brothers Publishers,, 1861)
I have been very fortunate to find this second, brown-covered copy of a work which I already have in defective form. As I note under that 1861 book, found at Emerald City Fine Books, Eugene, OR, by mail in September of ...

[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2 (D13)
(Ge Kyoung Sa, 1988)

A second book of Aesop's Fables
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. The Wolves and the Dogs is here but not in the larger-format book.
Los Dos Ratoncitos.
(Editorial Vasco Americana, 1973)
A falling-apart kids' version. Not particularly good drawings.
(Choun Publishing, 1982)
Forty fables with simple illustrations (the same used as cover art in other Choun editions of 1980/88 and 1988). The text, the art, and the typeset differ in the first twenty and the last twenty fables. Many in the first ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Mun Gong Sa, 1989)
Typical of recent Korean work: one design echoes the facing full page. The art is bright, sometimes strong and lively, sometimes only cute. There are five fables here: The Fox, the Rooster, and the Dog; TH; The Cat and ...
