Les Fables du Rat: Esopo, Fedro, La Fontaine
(Del Duca: Éditions Mondiales, 1963)
Here is a lively large-format book for children gathering seven well-known fables about rats. Each fable gets a two-page spread except the last, which has three pages. Prose texts share the page with colored illustrations. ...
Aesop's Fables: The Dog in a Manger
(Basil Blackwell, 1960)
This sixteen-page pamphlet seems to be in a series with The Wolf and the Dog, for which I had guessed a publication date of 1950. Both use Caxton's text. The telling of the fable is straightforward. The simple illustrations ...
(Tiger Books International, 1993)
This is a curious book, apparently in the category of mass produced classics made to look old and fancy. The versions of its 150 fables seem sometimes long. The illustrator is mentioned only on the cover and dust ...
(Editorial Limusa, 1989)
See 1975 and then 1986/89 for Fabulas: Felix Maria Samaniego, the latter most closely paralleling this book with seven full-page colored illustrations, identified on the reverse. 257 fables after a short introduction and ...

(F. A. Owen Publishing, 1906)
This paper-covered pamphlet contains eleven fables for first graders. The Instructor Literature Series contained 306 volumes at this time. The original price was $.10 or less. The fables are told very simply. In LM the ...

Aesop's Fables Coloring Book
(Dover Publications, 1972)
Valuable because of the nicely enlarged and clear Ulm drawings (1476).
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse And Other Aesop's Fables.
(Shooting Star Press, 1994)
This is a small book measuring just over 3 x4 . It contains three fables. From the first page on, this version of TMCM identifies the two mice as different. The town mouse complains and criticizes as soon as he arrives. ...
la liebre y la tortuga
(Ediciones La GaleralaGalera, 1973)
This version places the story outside Barcelona. The best of the illustrations is of the bunny sleeping against a tree. This rabbit napped until the turtle caught up. Then the rabbit took off to Vic and there had dinner ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
(Bantam BooksBantam: Doubleday Dell, 1995)
This is a delightful, short, softbound version perhaps most notable for its great rendition of the mice's heads and for the elaboration of mouse-life in both places. For the former, see, e.g., the embrace of the two on ...
