Here is the $1.25 version of this book, which had a $.50 printing and will go on a $1.50 printing. As I wrote of the earlier printing, this book is a great example of the basic cheap edition of Aesop, this book does not ...
(Scholastic Book Services, 1963)
A cheap paperback. The two-color illustrations are good simple starters for several tales. Otherwise there is nothing special here. Because they are three distinct printings, I will keep all three in the collection.
Fables from Aesop
AI at the back. The alternating (water-?) colored and black-and-white illustrations are not bad. Maybe the best thing about this kids' book is the morals--e.g., for the man who loses his wig: When others laugh at us, ...
Aesop: Five Centuries of Illustrated Fables.
(Metropolitan Museum of Art: NY Graphic SocietyMetropolitan Museum of Art; distributed by New York Graphic Society Greenwich, Conn.,, 1964)
A lovely book that started me off on this whole romp. One can always find more in this good work. Of course it also suggests many more places to look. A wonderfully chosen panorama.
The Fables of Aesop: Selected, Told Anew and Their History Traced by Joseph Jacobs.
Meg got this for me from her Berkeley High library. I love any illustrations that Levine does; the added spice here is that he later (1975) turned his hand to a fuller illustration. One can trace the genesis of some of ...
Fabulas de Esopo
(Susaeta Ediciones, S.A., 1965)

(Ideals Publishing Co., 1965)
A small-format book, almost a pamphlet. The companion volumes come in 1966. The best illustrations in this volume are of GGE and FG. Do not miss the DS moral: The good things that you have are lost when you are ...
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 ...
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 ...
