Aesop: 12 Fabeln
(BilderbuchstudioMichael Neugebauer Verlag, 1989)
This book is almost identical with the English version I have from 1989 as put out by Picture Book Studio. They share the same size and format. This book has the same cover picture of the dancing camel but lacks the dust ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable
(Rand McNally & Company, 1973)
I thought I had this book, and was wrong again! In fact, it is a copy of the much larger book of the same year from the same company. Where that book was 8 x 10¼, this little book is 4¾ x 6½. This book needs thinner ...
Three Animal Fables Selected from Aesop.
(Thorsons Publishers, 1930)
This is a second copy of this delightful book. Its binding is blue rather than gray and is appreciably stronger. So I have made a second record and will keep both in the collection. This copy has a strange scent: a ...
(The Paine Publishing Company, 1908)
I had presumed that this pamphlet of 32 pages containing some thirteen fables was a printing of some sort from the two volumes Reiter did for the Instructor Literature Series. These were Eleven Fables from Aesop (1906) ...

The Hare and the Tortoise
(Troll Associates, 1981)
I have had this book for twenty-three years, but there was a new addition in this eBay advertisement: story cards for a literary center. I was curious. The book remains the same, and I will include my earlier remarks on ...
Aesop: Tales of Aethiop the African, Volume II
(Sea Island Information Group, 1992)
I got this signed copy of Volume II along with a signed copy of Volume I (1989) on Ebay. See my comments there and on the first printing of the first edition in the same year. Here are twenty-five fables with an introduction ...
Fables from Aesop
(Blackie & Son Ltd., 1964)
Here is a small hardbound book the size of a traditional Penguin paperback, with one hundred and nine fables, perhaps fifteen to twenty of them illustrated in black-and-white with either a partial-page or a full-page ...
The Danish Aesop: 59 of the old animal fables
(Hans Reitzel, 1961)
Here is the paperbound version of the great book I had found a year and a half earlier. See my extensive comments there. I find no difference between the two except in the binding. This copy is in better condition than that.
The Greedy Dog and other stories from Aesop
(World Distributors Ltd., 1971)
This large-format book presents seven fables with large, even splashy illustrations. I have never seen a cat the color of the cat pictured for BC! FG has a positive moral: There is comfort in pretending that what we can't ...
