The Boy Who Cried Wolf
(Society for Visual Education, 1980)
Nice simple big pictures, one to a page. The boy ends up telling himself the moral. Maybe the last page, without borders or print, is the most expressive: the men look up to the hills and do nothing.
A Sample of Aesop
(Bertram RotaBetram Rota, 1993)
The introduction to this twelve-page booklet offers the touching story of a very poor family in the 1920's, when mother Helen and son Rex collaborated on a book of two fables. Here, sixty years later, the booklet sees the ...
(Uitg. ElectaUitgeverij Electa, 1950)
The bulk of this book is a set of 150 Aesopic fables done into Dutch verse. The fables are divided into these subsets: stories from mythology, animals (alone or with people), humans (alone or with gods), nature, and ...
The Hunter, the Fox, and the Tiger (Cover: A Fable)
(Published & Printed by McGraw-Phillips, 1970)
I presume that this was an advertising gift from McGraw-Phillips. It is a clever little booklet 5¼ x 6¼ and 16 pages long. The cleverness starts on the cover, which shows three intersecting tracks and labels them vulpes ...
(Adam & Charles Black, 1912)
This edition has a dust jacket but seems otherwise to reproduce my 1950 reprinting of the 1912 original. The colored illustrations are particularly well done here. This is what I wrote on that 1950 reprinting: It reduces ...
Aesop's Fables Illustrated.
(World Library Guild, 1910)
This well-worn book is close to several editions already in the collection. They are titled Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated and printed, as is this edition, by the Commercial Bookbinding Company of Cleveland. Both ...
The Aesop for Children
(Rand McNally, 1919)
Only the cover material is different than it is in the 1962 reprint. Edition of 1951 stands here on the title-page where Edition of 1962 stands there. See my comments there. It becomes more and more difficult to number ...
The Race of the Turtle and the Rabbit, with five 3 dimensional spring-ups
(Artcraft Paper Products, 1950)
This book is in the same series with Goldie the Goose (1950?) and The Lion and the Mouse Join the Circus (1950?). The turtle is Myrtle, and the Bunny is Bert. Myrtle joins Mrs. Duck in telling Bert that he should not ...
Little Tales from Aesop
(Bairns Books Ltd., 1950)
This is a large sixteen-page landscape-formatted pamphlet with various kinds of illustrations for its thirteen fables. The most exciting are the full-page colored illustrations for FS (front cover), DLS, The Cat and the ...
The Ant and the Grasshopper
(Houghton Mifflin Company, 1991)
This is a full-sized 16-page pamphlet. The illustrations are double-page spreads with simple lines, like The Ant worked. The grasshopper didn't (3). Pages 4-5 show delight in the multi-limbed character of both insects. ...
