(DoubledayGarden City Books, 1954)
Large and not very impressive pastels. I have at least three different versions of this book, based on criteria of price, dust-jacket back flaps, cover design, and binding. This first version originally cost $2.50, whereas ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952)
T of C. No index. Many one-colored watercolors, with some full-colored pages (listed on 9). Though simple, some of the illustrations are quite attractive. The book is typical of recent editions for kids.
Fables of Aesop
(Penguin Books, 1954)
The text seems otherwise unchanged from the 1954 first printing. There is a new cover. Note that the reference to Rieu on the very first page has changed. This newer book was cheaper than the older one!
Fables from Aesop
AI at the back. The alternating (water-?) colored and black-and-white illustrations are not bad. Maybe the best thing about this kids' book is the morals--e.g., for the man who loses his wig: When others laugh at us, ...
Fables from Aesop Compliments of Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup
(Anglo-American Drug Co.NA, 1935)
This is a mid-size (5 1/2 x 7 1/2) pamphlet of twelve pages containing ten large sepia illustrations, each above a fable, a moral, and a comment on Mrs. Winslow's syrup. The patterns for the earliest illustrations here ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop
(Avenel: CrownDistributed by Avenel Books, 1967)
The engravings are unfortunately quite indistinct.
Promenade au Jardin des Fables
(Braun & Cie/Berger-LevraultBraun Berger-Levrault,, 1923)
One of the heavier and more pretentious books in the collection. The book seems to me to represent a kind of printer's dream, drawing in all sorts of illustrations. I have listed Berger-Levrault as a publisher, but they ...
The Aesop's Fables
(Xianggang qi ming shu ju, 1930)
This is a rare, ephemeral find! This 5 x 7 1/4 soft-cover paperbound book has some 290 pages. Each of 299 fables is printed in English on the left side and in Chinese characters on the right side. I cannot identify the ...
Little Folk's Fables from Aesop
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1940)
At last, I have a good, clean copy of this curious little book, which spells its title three different ways: I use here the correct version on the cover rather than the interior title's Folks' or the title page's Folks. ...
Favorite Fables from Aesop
(Rand McNally & Company, 1939)
I have three different versions of this book and will keep two copies of this first version in the collection. I believe that this Powell's copy and the copy from Dorothy Meyer may be the most original. The two show these ...
