Fables from Aesop
(BlackiePeter Bedrick Books, 1961)
See my comments on the hardbound version.
(Bergen Faktorforening, 1968)
This slim book of some 24 pages was apparently a Christmas gift of the Bergen Faktorforening. In fact, Wiig had done a 1951 translation of Aesop 106 pages in length, illustrated by Johan Berle Reidar and published by J.W. ...
My Book of the Lion and the Mouse and Other Fables.
(Oddhams PressOdhams, 1961)
This is really a printing for another publisher and audience of the same book I have listed under My Book of Aesop's Fables in 1962. It is the same book internally, but there are some very curious variations, starting ...
Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
I had found a copy of this book twelve years ago. In keeping with a policy of including even extra copies of numbered, limited edition books, I will include this copy too. I can offer one new piece of information. I ...
Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange
(Dover Publications, 1967)
I have already listed versions of this book under the same date. Those copies, I noticed, have a wide price range starting at $1.50. Here is an earlier copy from Dover with a price of $1.25. A confirmation of its early ...
Still More Aesop's Fables
(Ideals Publishing Co., 1966)
This is a small-format book, almost a pamphlet. Surprise! I had thought that the companion volumes in 1965 and 1966 were the whole set. Perhaps the most entertaining illustration here features a gigantic ant biting the ...
(Paul Hamlyn, 1965)
Here is a copy of the wonderful Untermeyer/Provenson edition from a different than usual publisher. My many other copies of this favorite book come from Golden Press, a part of Western Publishing. They are acknowledged ...
(Franklin Watts, 1968)
An old Library of Congress book that was never taken out once and so is in excellent condition. Vastly superior in its illustrations to the Avenel facsimile (1975?). This is not a facsimile, for it omits the illustration ...
Fables of a Jewish Aesop
(Columbia University Press, 1967)
A curious but disappointing book. The 119 Hebrew fables come from France of the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries and seem to be based chiefly on those of Marie de France. They are bleak about the fickleness ...
(London: J.M. Dent & Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton & Company, 1961)
A beautiful edition distinctive for its green, blue, orange or tan two-tone art, a specimen of which appears on every page except 15 and 71. Some samples of very good illustration occur on 46, 85, 108, and 114. Perhaps ...
