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 ...
Fontaine's Fables, With Which Are Included Aesop's Fables.
(Small Maynard & Company,, 1922)
This book has some fascinating features among its forty-three fables from LaFontaine (through 75) and its fifty-four from Aesop. There is never more than one fable to a page. The LaFontaine portion seems to me to represent ...
The Lion and the Mouse: An Aesop's Fable.
(Millbrook Press, 1995)
A very nice sideways book with the thickest pages I have encountered in a book in a long time. The art work is all black-and-white--perhaps charcoal? The story is told with dignity and sensitivity throughout. Some ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and One Hundred and Ninety-Eight Illustrations
(Derby & Jackson, 1857)
This copy seems identical with -- but is in better condition than -- our copy of the 1859 edition from Derby and Jackson. I will repeat some of my observations from there. This is one of many cheap reprintings with new ...
((CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform), 2015)
Here is another print-on-demand book in the form of a sturdy mid-sized paperback of 188 pages. This seems a good rendition of Townsend's texts, preceded by an interminable T of C and followed by a life of Aesop, a preface ...
Aesop's Fables: New Series: Books for the Bairns.-XXVI
(Review of Reviews Office, 1899)
This is a hard-cover version in better condition than the pamphlet version I have listed under the same title, publisher, author. That listing is under 1899?. Besides the hard covers, this copy has different advertisements ...
The Fables of Aesop [Cover: Warne's Edition of Aesop's Fables]
(Frederick Warne and Co./Scribner, Welford, and Armstrong, 1875)
I have been able to date this book to the period from 1872 to 1878, for it was during that six year period that Scribner's had the title Scribner, Welford, and Armstrong, which is listed on the first of the title-pages ...
