[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...
[Korean] Sun and Wind
(Bum WooP*omusa, 1987)
A pleasing simple book of the above four fables and TB. This book seems typical of recent Korean work, for it is both colorful and vivid. The echoes are particularly good, e.g., that of the fellow diving into the ...
Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
This lovely reproduction in exaggerated portrait format (4¾ x 8½) is a mystery to me. It presents very traditional rectangular illustrations, one for each of the 117 fables. They seem to be signed by I Raymond. But I ...
Aesop's Frog Fables
(Peter & Donna Thomas, 1990)
A beautifully executed book. I like the letterpress printing. The print and the versions are very attractive; I find the nine illustrations somewhat disappointing: they lack the wit or characterization one might have ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1910)
Here is yet another variation in a book I have already in three other forms, listed under 1900?. This copy has a simple brown cloth cover and spine without illustration. Both cover and spine read simply Aesop's Fables. ...
(Wordsworth ClassicsWordsworth Editions Ltd, 1912)
Several years ago I found in London a very inexpensive (£.90) paperback reproduced in 1995 from material in the Rackham/Jones edition of 1912. Now I have hit the other end of the financial spectrum in this country. I ...
The Father, his Son and their Donkey/Hermes and the Wood-cutter/The Rich Man and his Servant.
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Nice changes inculturate these fables: Ibrahim and Ali are given native skin and clothing. Hermes becomes the god of a river. The servant and the rich man con each other.
Treasury of Aesop's Fables
(Avenel BooksCrown Publishing, 1973)
No index or T of C. Very small engravings, probably too small to be of use. The text may be from the eighteenth or nineteenth century, but I cannot find any attribution. A reprint of some of Bewick's art from Select ...
The Fables of Aesop
This is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine approaches the fables with real wit. He plays with them. I have to watch out that I do not use too many of his illustrations. Now in 1996 I have done a ...
(C. R. Gibson Co., 1968)
Delightful both in its verse and its drawings. Worth looking over for something that can be used. The text and the drawings are well integrated. The texts have some spice. The hare ends up holding up the fox reaching ...
