Esop Basni: Mythoi Aisopeioi
(Jantarniy Skaz, 1999)
"It has been fun digging into this very small (3½" x 4") but sturdy book. Gasparov's translations have already found a place once in this collection, in a 2003 edition by Eksmo with the illustrations of Rackham. Here the ...
(J.B. Lippincott Company, 1949)
"There are already two copies of this book in the collection, but they are different. Both of them have non-pictorial cloth covers and dust jackets. This copy, by contrast, has on its cover a black-and-white rendition ...
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 ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop
(Grolier Society, 1967)
Identical with the Crown/Avenel hardbound book (1967?). I have copies with both a blue-on-white front cover and -- in summer of 1989 for $3 -- a white-on-blue front cover.
A Type Specimen of Lutetia: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, Printer, 1970)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically Lutetia 12D Roman and Italic, 14D Roman and Italic, and 16D Roman.. Good woodblock illustrations ...
A Type Specimen of Baskerville: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, 1971)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically 12 point Roman, Bold, and Italic and 8 point, 10 point, and 12 point Roman with Italic. Wonderful, ...
Aesop's Fables (Cover: Classics to Grow on)
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1964)
See my 1964 Aesop's Fables in the Keepworthy Classics series. This seems to be the very same book, perhaps with superficial changes like a name in the series. See my comments there, and check the particulars of the two ...
(Rand McNally & Company, 1972)
This may be my first flip out book, in which a two-page spread includes a page that folds out to make a triptych. The pages are well matched to create two different pictures using the image on the left, one with the ...
Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange.
(Harrison of ParisMinton Balch and Company,, 1931)
I first saw and admired this book at C. Dickens in April at a CAMWS meeting. I am glad I called Jeff Barnes back when I came for the APA meeting in December. There is some water damage and a bit of bowing to the Dickens ...
