Twelve Fables from Aesop from the Translation of Sir Robert [sic] L'Estrange 1692
(West of England College of Art, 1947)
Here is a rare find. I doubt that many copies were printed of this large-format book. It is in very good condition. Not in Bodemann. There are eight strong colored illustrations here; each fable seems to get two ...
(Editorial Tor, 1948)
Cover: "Fabulas Ilustradas Esopo." Tor seems to specialize in creating covers swimming with specific narrative images from the stories inside. So it is here. The endpapers are, however, generic: a shipload of animals ...
Little Folk's Fables from Aesop
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1940)
At last, I have a good, clean copy of this curious little book, which spells its title three different ways: I use here the correct version on the cover rather than the interior title's Folks' or the title page's Folks. ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Edmund S. WoodMinia Press, 1943)
Lovely old--but rather fragile and beaten--miniature about an inch square. Several Heighway drawings are pirated in besides the approximately twenty drawings from Bennett.
(The Heritage Press, 1941)
This lovely book often brings high prices. Most of the illustrations are brown on white. Some add a golden background. A few show good wit. I would like to include one or two in a slide lecture. Having just worked ...
(The Heritage Reprints, 1941)
Check the inside of the dust jacket to see the Reprints marking that sets off this edition from the Heritage Illustrated Bookshelf edition, along with the brown cover here and the notation of wartime regulations on the ...
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1947)
Simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several colored pages besides a number of black-and-whites. The tellings of the tales may be most helpful for the clear morals. Let me say more here about the various ...
Aesop's Fables for Modern Readers
(Peter Pauper Press, 1941)
A valuable little book for its tellings and its morals. The block art by Eric Carle is neither extensive nor really unusual. I wish I knew who did the translations and morals here; they have their own spice. See the two ...
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 eagle & the fox & the fox and the eagle: two semantically symmetrical versions followed by a revised application
(Gaberbocchus Press Limited, 1949)
This wild and wonderful presentation had been on my want list since I saw it in the Heffelfinger Collection in Minneapolis. Princeton Antiques' notice to me was the first time I had heard that it was available. Though ...
