The Hare & the Tortoise and Other Stories
(Kingfisher Books, 1986)
This book is apparently Kingfisher's version of The Animal Tale Treasury (1986), likewise printed in Italy. (It also has significant overlap with A Treasury of Animal Stories in 1992). The illustrations here alternate ...

The source for this book is a Goldsmith edition of 1923. Eighteen pages. The cover shows Santa painting a Noah's Ark. Eleven colored illustrations, with others in black on sepia. 13/16 x 10/16. The fables included are ...
Der Wizard in Ozzenland: : My Grossfader's Rhymers und Fable Tellen mit also Heinrich Schnibble's Deutscher Wordenbooke
(Doubleday & Company Inc.,, 1962)
My, this book is expensive! I am surprised that it took me until now to find it. I have four earlier, similar books by Morrah, and am happy to find this fifth. I think it completes the circuit. As I have written before, ...
Crow & Fox and Other Animal Legends
(Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 1993)
A beautiful large-format book with strong colors in its illustrations, borders, and designs. The nine stories are linked as each fable takes up one character from the preceding. I find four that are Aesopic fables: The ...

(Charles E. Tuttle Company, 1993)
This book consists of nine folk tales highlighted by photographs of collages of cloth, photographs, and other materials; the fabric borders of each story's collage are then repeated on each page of the story. Among the ...

My Book of Animal Stories
(Gallery BooksMarshall Cavendish Limited, 1989)
Identical with Cavendish's 1988 book with the same title. See my comments there. The bar code and the price in pounds have been removed from the back cover.
Fabulas Ganadoras Certamen Fabula Bestiaria.
(Recinto Universitario de MayaguezRecinto Universitario de Mayagüez, 1990)
Five Spanish stories (which I have not read) and six English (which I have). The latter represent a nice spread of imaginative animal tales. Gaarbon the Poet (21) features a frog who wants to see the world and does. ...
A Harvest of World Folk Tales
(Viking Press, 1968)
Identical with the hardbound (1949/55) in plates and pagination. The print area is reduced slightly and margins substantially. There are thus again thirteen fables (415-21) in Thomas James' translations; they form the ...
TMCM is one of nine stories in this collection. The version seems to reduplicate that in Kincaid's Town Mouse and Country Mouse (1985), and the illustrations are selected from those there. Curiously, an illustration of ...
