Fables from Aesop
(Oxford University Press, 1966)
Excellent reproductions of Grandville. Index on 207. Rees is liberal in his translations--and often delightful. Do not miss the good (Aesopic?) text of the man in the shower on 181.
Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange.
(Dover Publications, 1967)
Lovely stuff. The drawings really are excellent. I saw the first edition of this book from Harrison in Paris for sale in Atlanta at too high a price but have since found it. I have eight different versions of this Dover ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop/Nonsense Alphabets.
(Grolier Society, 1967)
This book is identical (in larger format with enlarged and relatively good illustrations) with the Avenel edition (1967?) of the same name, except that it also contains Edward Lear's Nonsense Alphabets upside down and going ...
More Aesop's Fables
(Ideals Publishing Co., 1966)
This is a small-format book, almost a pamphlet. There are companion volumes in 1965 and 1966. The milkmaid carries her pail in her hand. Facing pages, for example in The Two Crabs and The Oak and the Reed, are ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop
(Grolier Society, 1967)
Identical with the Crown/Avenel hardbound book (1967?). I have copies with both a blue-on-white front cover and -- in summer of 1989 for $3 -- a white-on-blue front cover.

This is a mid-size (5 1/2 x 7 1/2) pamphlet of twelve pages containing ten large sepia illustrations, each above a fable, a moral, and a comment on Mrs. Winslow's syrup. The patterns for the earliest illustrations here ...
Bookforum: The Book Review for Art, Fiction & Culture Summer 1998
(ARTFORUM International, 1998)
Marina Warner's review of Aesop: The Complete Fables, translated by Olivia and Robert Temple, occupies 17-18. Warner puts the Aesop of the old Penguin by Handford firmly on juvenile territory and finds the Temples taking ...
A Type Specimen of Baskerville: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, 1971)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically 12 point Roman, Bold, and Italic and 8 point, 10 point, and 12 point Roman with Italic. Wonderful, ...
The Aesop's Fables
(Xianggang qi ming shu ju, 1930)
This is a rare, ephemeral find! This 5 x 7 1/4 soft-cover paperbound book has some 290 pages. Each of 299 fables is printed in English on the left side and in Chinese characters on the right side. I cannot identify the ...
(The Heritage Press, 1941)
This lovely book often brings high prices. Most of the illustrations are brown on white. Some add a golden background. A few show good wit. I would like to include one or two in a slide lecture. Having just worked ...
