The Fables of Aesop
(Dorset Press, 1975)
This is a clear, crisp reprinting -- with almost no margins -- of Gambit's great book of 1975. The illustrations are still wonderful! As I wrote there, this is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine ...
Birds, Beasts, and Fishes
(Maxwell Macmillan International Pub. Group, 1991)
An excellent collection of animal poetry, with bright and colorful art, oil paint on hardwood. There is one fable: William Ellery Leonard's version of DLS (47). There is also Hopkins' Windhover and The Captive Bird by ...
The Third-Class Reader
(Hogan & Thompson, 1845)
Surprisingly dependent on fables. There are thirteen fables among the eighty-four story-lessons. Nine of the fables have strong small illustrations. The Goat and the Fox (19) comments on animals' language and on ...
Fables for Our Time and Famous Poems Illustrated.
(Harper & Brothers, 1940)
I have worked my way back to a first edition! And now even to a dust jacket! When it appeared, this book cost $2.50! This Lien copy is in very good condition; I cannot believe how bright its inside cover is. I am ...
Old Tales of Japan, Vol. I
(Dai-Nippon Printing Co.s.n.], 1947)
These are really three folk tales, but one of them is a traditional (though non-Aesopic) fable, and so I have included the book in the collection. That is the second story, Nezumi No Yomeiri, the story about a mouse ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Avallon. Comynet, Imprimeur-Librairie, 1835)
A small book of the complete fables in contemporary marbled boards. Its special feature is four pages of six square wood engravings each (frontispiece and facing 40, 90, 114). It would be a delight to track down the ...
Aesop's Fables in Irish--Parts I to V
(The Irish Book Company, 1909)
Fifty fables and a vocabulary that stretches almost longer than the fables! Sorry. Since I cannot read this text, I do not have much more to say!
Kalila and Dimna: Selected Fables of Bidpai.
(Alfred A. Knopf, 1980)
See my listing under 1982 of the paperback edition, which strangely does not mention this edition. It was great to see this old paperback friend lying out as a hardbound edition on the tables at Strand!
The Fables of Aesop
(Mayflower Books, 1894)
I continue to find various reprints of this great book. This book brings to nine the number of different formats in which I have this work. This edition is very nicely done for $5.95. The illustrations are clear. The ...
(Donohue Henneberry & Co,, 1899)
Here is a wonderful find. It is one of those turn-of-the-century readers with simple stories of all sorts, dark pictures, and bright-eyed children on the cover. I noticed as I was about to put the book back that there ...
