Aesop's Fables, Volume III
(Trillium Press, 1985)
This volume moves on to poems, possessives, and competition. The best illustrations are for BC, The Tree and the Reed, and AL.
The Grasshopper and the Ants (Japanese)
(Gakush¿± Kenky¿±sha, 1982)
Fascinating comparisons of this Japanese version with the English-language version listed previously begin with the color of the covers. The inside front cover of this version has small reproductions of Grandville and ...
(Junior Deluxe Editions, 1968)
The same material one finds in the standard Doubleday editions (1968) with the exception of Singer's introduction and the AI at the back. The print is larger, the order of fables is rearranged, and there seem to be fewer of them.
(Exeter Books, 1924)
Surprisingly good runs of the reproductions of Rountree's work. This book is closest to the sixteen-illustration edition of 1924? As is typical of Exeter, there is no introductory or bibliographical material.
The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1962)
It took me five years to find this book! A simple account with nice pictures, told traditionally up until the end where the miller saves his donkey from the river.
Folk-Lore and Fable: Aesop, Grimm, Anderson.
(F.P. Collier & Son Corporation, 1909)
This volume, in very good condition, has elements of both my 1909 and my 1909/37/69 editions. With the latter it shares pagination and frontispiece but not the fancy binding. With the former it shares the notation that ...
The Fables of Aesop
(World Publishing Company, 1857)
The bonanza of Bennett editions continues! This one has the 1931 copyright; the revised 1933 (not the 1931) introduction--but it is not dated, as it is in other 1933 editions; it is from a different publisher (World--as ...
A Novel Journal: Aesop's Fables
(Peter Norton: Printers Row Publishing Group, 2016)
"Here is a first! This is indeed a journal for writing one's thoughts and experiences. The tiny lines in the journal are Aesop's fables. As an advertising slip proclaims, "The journal lines are the novel (in teeny, tiny ...
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 ...
