Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1972)
What a find! The store owner said she had no Aesop except the one that her child was reading. I offered her $5; she accepted and then said she really thought it worth only a dollar! This book adds two fables to those ...
Aesop's Fables with Upwards of One Hundred and Fifty Emblematical Devices
(John Locken, 1849)
This very little book (3¼ x 4½) reproduces almost exactly my 1839 and 1841 editions from Thomas, Cowperthwait & Company, also in Philadelphia. It thus has 228 pages. This book has even smaller margins than those, and so ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and a Print Before Each Fable
(Published by Joseph M'Dowell, 1836)
First, there is this bad news: 195-201 are missing. This book uses apparently the same after Kirkall plates that were used in my Cowperthwait edition of 1850 and my 1840 edition of unknown origin. My test case for this ...
(Mantra Lingua Ltd., 2007)
This is a large-format (11 x 9 1/4) landscape book presenting two fables: LM and The Hare's Revenge. The illustrations seem to use about three or four colors, typically tan, brown, pink, and green. LM uses the green ...

Aesop's Fables: 240 Short Stories for Children

This is a curious paperbound book of the internet instantaneous publishing era. My Amazon order is dated February 20, 2010. This book was printed February 21, 2010. The book is based on Aesop's Fables: A New Revised ...
Aesop's Fables for Children
(Dover Publications, 2008)
Here is a fine reprint of the classic The Aesop for Children published in 1919 by Rand McNally. It not only does a fine job of reproducing the exquisite Milo Winter illustrations. It also adds a CD for reading and ...
(The Heritage Press, 1941)
This lovely book often brings high prices. Most of the illustrations are brown on white. Some add a golden background. A few show good wit. I would like to include one or two in a slide lecture. Having just worked ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Edmund S. WoodMinia Press, 1943)
Lovely old--but rather fragile and beaten--miniature about an inch square. Several Heighway drawings are pirated in besides the approximately twenty drawings from Bennett.
(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 ...
