[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 ...
The Lion and the Mouse
(Rand McNally & Company, 1968)
The expanded story has some unusual twists: Mr. Lion is the father of a family, as the mouse is a mother. The lion does not sleep or threaten to eat the mouse. The lion laughs to learn that the mouse has babies. The ...
[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. ...
[Thai] [lion/mouse cameo on cover]
Two fables are illustrated with eight pages of simple green monochrome each at the beginning: Talkative Turtle and Frogs Desiring a King. Then lots of stories without English or illustrations. T of C at the beginning.

Phèdre, bound with Aesop's Fables as Romanized by Phaedrus
(Librairie de L. Hachette, 1846)
The pre-title here is just too long to try to fit into the title slot: Les Auteurs Latin expliqués d'après une méthode nouvelle par deux traductions françaises, l'une littérale et juxtalinéaire presentant le mot a mot ...
Phaedri Augusti Liberti Fabulae Aesopiae
This is one of the many printings under Number 620 in Carnes' Phaedrus bibliography. Here is Carnes' description: One of the most successful editions of Phaedrus, a school edition, by Müller (1836-1898), with a short ...
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 ...
The Tortoise and the Hare: An Aesop's Fable
(Frances Lincoln Limited, 2001)
This is a landscape-formatted, unpaginated, well-executed large book. McAllister is careful in her English telling of the tale. I say English because a few elements like elevenses might look strange to readers in the ...
Aesop's Fables Translated from the Greek
Here is a curious and wonderful find! It has the marks of a limited edition but offers no recognition of the twenty texts' translator or of the artist who did the eight strong woodcuts (?) pasted onto interlaid heavier ...
