The Fables of Aesop now newly imprinted by Vincent Torre
(At The Ink-Well PressPrinted for E.W. at the Sign of the Ink-Well, 1952)
Gradually I am coming to the end of finding--and affording--the various fable works of Vincent Torre. This is another beautiful piece. This book is a surprisingly short 40 pages long and contains twenty fables. The ...
I do not remember when I have had to fill in so many not acknowledged answers about a book! This is a 4 x 3.5 pamphlet with a total of twelve pages. Perhaps its most interesting feature is the variety of spacing and even ...
Aesopica Vol. 1: Greek & Latin Texts
(Arno Press, 1952)
The standard work for textual comparison. It is hard to know if it is worth $75, but at least the Arno Press version has the complete original.
Zehn Fabeln des Aesop
Each of the ten fables here has one, two, or three small woodcuts colored in green and black. Most are about 2 square. The best of them include TB, FC, and Fabel vom Pfau und der Göttin. Pferd, Rind, Hund und Mensch has ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables

I am surprised that I had not known of this book earlier. It presents thirty Aesopic fables in prose, each on a left-hand numbered page with a design on the facing right page. The pages are made of very heavy paper, and ...
(Garden 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. The price of this third version has been clipped ...
Esopo: Fábulas Escogidas
(Gráficas Aymamí?s.n., 1956)
This little paperbound book of 105 pages contains thirty-three verse fables, many of them illustrated by Noguera. I found these illustrations, most of which seem frankly derivative: on 25 a frontispiece a la Grandville ...
(Thomas Nelson and Sons LimitedThomas Nelson and Sons Ltd., 1955)
This is a lovely little softbound book in card wrappers. I am surprised I had not seen it before. Its first nice feature comes on the endpapers. Each animal is involved with this very book in a way appropriate to one ...
