Aesop's Fables With a Life of Aesop
(The University Press of KentuckyUniversity of Kentucky Press, 1993)
An excellent book and a valuable resource. A good introduction leads up to placing Hurus' book in history. Good comments on the history and traditions. Rinuccio translated Planudes from Greek into Latin in about 1450. ...
Esopovi Ba?ky (Ukrainian Aesop's Fables)
This is a small book, about 5 x 6¾, with 247 pages of Aesop's fables followed by a T of C. The brown silhouette on the cloth cover -- of two mounted Greek horsemen and one soldier with a kneeling horse -- gives a sense ...
(University of Washington Press, 1997)
Windmill Books originally published Lawrence's ink-on-paper illustrations for eighteen fables in 1970 (see my comments there), but he had done twenty-three. Now they are all presented here. Do not miss the fine frog ...
Aesop's Fables: The Hare and the Tortoise and The Travelers and the Bear
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1995)
Here is a new presentation of the same art that Hirata used in 1989 for his Joie set. The art here is certainly superior in presentation to the Peter Haddock series (1989?). It is darker than Joie's art, sometimes stronger ...
Favole di Esopo
(Einaudi Ragazzi, 1994)
This book reproduces in smaller paperback form the 1989 large hardbound book published by Barron. The paperback's size is 4¼ x 7¼; these proportions make for a narrow portrait format, and so the original images are regularly ...
Aesop's Fables: The Miller and His Donkey and The Greedy Dog
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1994)
Here is the first printing of a pamphlet whose republication I have listed under 1995 from the same publisher. Books in this edition and this year cost $2.50. When reprinted a year later, they cost $2.95. See my comments there.
(Penguin Books, 1996)
This inexpensive version takes over the text from Zipes' Signet Classic for the New American Library. This use of his text is not surprising, since NAL belongs to Penguin Books. This edition strips away the illustrations; ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Lothrop Lee & Shepard Books,, 1994)
One hundred and three fables with thirty full-color paintings and many pen-and-ink drawings. The former are unusually well defined. In her first note, Rowan says that the morals have been so over-quoted that they have ...
Great Illustrated Aesop's Fables
(Baronet Books, 1994)
Does the fact that the cover and title page need to give examples indicate something? This seems to me to be an ultimate formula book. The two-page formula involves a story on the left, with a moral beneath it, and a ...
(Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1992)
This beautiful first U.S. edition varies little from the Pavilion original; see my comments there. The flyleaves, title pages, and colophon pages seem to contain the only differences. As I wrote there, this is a very ...
