Tolstoi's Aesop's Fables (Hebrew)
(Maḥbarot le-sifrut, 1951)
Here is a modest book of forty-six fables on 51 pages plus a T of C at the end. The blue-ink woodcuts are lovely; they have the look of something stamped into the book by hand. On the whole, they are very nicely done. ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(A.L. Burt Company Publ.,, 1895)
This copy replicates another in the collection in almost every respect. The printing of the year 1895 on the verso of the title-page is clearer. Above all, it fills in the price for each book in the series on the very ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1905)
I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to ...
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1848)
I am adding this copy to the collection because it improves on some of the features in a copy I already have. This copy does change one feature in the book I have already catalogued: it adds Made in the United States of ...
Mythoi Tou Aisopou (Aesop's Fables)
(D.C. Divry, 1950)
The Greek makes for fun reading, and the verse morals are cute, but I am afraid there is not much here more than evidence that Greeks still relish the stories (and that they are good for teaching!). The illustrations are ...
The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 with those of Avian, Alfonso, and Poggio, now again edited and induced by Joseph Jacobs.
(Burt Franklin, 1889)
The Same as Volume 1 of the David Nutt entry. Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). I am eager to try some of Jacobs' scholarship. There is a wonderful pedigree of Caxton's Aesop facing 1.
Corpus Fabularum Aesopicarum.
(Teubner BSB, 1970)
This book apparently includes the addenda and corrigenda of Haas appended in the 1957 edition, which this edition revises (see my comments there). There is an Ordo Fabularum beginning on XXXIII. This fascicle contains ...
City Mouse--Country Mouse.
(Scholastic Book Services, 1970)
Meant for little kids. Pleasant water-colors with cartoon statements. The illustration style is itself that of kids. I enjoy the assemblies in BC. Also included is LM. Packaged with a 33 rpm recording.
(Exeter Books, 1924)
Surprisingly good runs of the reproductions of Rountree's work. This book is closest to the sixteen-illustration edition of 1924? As is typical of Exeter, there is no introductory or bibliographical material.
Folk-Lore and Fable: Aesop, Grimm, Anderson.
(F.P. Collier & Son Corporation, 1909)
This volume, in very good condition, has elements of both my 1909 and my 1909/37/69 editions. With the latter it shares pagination and frontispiece but not the fancy binding. With the former it shares the notation that ...
