The Aesop for Children
(Checkerboard Press, 1919)
This orange-covered book, with 126 fables on ninety-six pages, is very similar to the Rand McNally edition dated 1919/47/84. This edition is on softer paper; the illustrations take on a different atmosphere.
Aesop's Fables: A Version for Young Readers.
(Ginn and Company, 1915)
A curious reworking of Stickney and Ginn's Child's Version of Aesop's Fables (1891) with a new artist, whose illustrations are rather standard. The text seems basically the same; WL changes the lamb's sex to female. At ...
(Franklin Watts, 1968)
An old Library of Congress book that was never taken out once and so is in excellent condition. Vastly superior in its illustrations to the Avenel facsimile (1975?). This is not a facsimile, for it omits the illustration ...
(London: J.M. Dent and Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton and Company, 1915)
A very nice little book in good condition. Earlier I had found two editions of Tilney's LaFontaine (1913/30 and 1913/36/38) from the same series. This book deliberately omits fables included by the moderns. The texts ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Schocken Books, 1894)
This may be the best single simple edition of Aesop I know. Heighway is a wonderful illustrator. This edition presents the engravings quite crisply.
Aesop's Fables (with 16 colour plates)
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1924)
Once again I thought I was buying an extra of a book I already had. This edition has fewer illustrations, in fact one-third of the number in the other edition from Ward and Lock. It is in excellent condition. The texts ...
Aesop's Fables (brown)
(Heritage Press, 1941)
The interior of this book seems identical with that of the boxed yellow version from the same publisher in the same year, except that the T of C gives 126 for 124 and is off by two pages for the rest of its listings. This ...
The Most Beautiful Fables of Aesop, Phaedrus and La Fontaine
(White Star Kids, 2018)
This heavy, large-format book offers twelve fables from each of its three fabulists, each fable two to eight pages long. The artist works hard to integrate text with illustration. "The Lion and the Mosquito" presents a ...
(White Star Kids, 2017)
In this large-format book, twenty fables are given two pages each after an introduction. White Star did the book in Italian, also in 2017. Might Adreani have been the author as well as the artist? Only "Esopo" is listed ...
Fables Gravées Par Sadeler, Avec Un Discours Préliminaire Et Les Sens Moraux En Distiques
(Hachette Livre, 1743)
This is a print-on-demand xerox copy of the 1747 original. I picked it up to compare with the 1689 Sadeler edition I bought form Scott Schilb. The illustrations here of the 139 fables are fascinating. They have strong ...
