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. ...
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 ...
(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 ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Edmund S. WoodMinia Press, 1943)

Here is a pamphlet helping to market the Leaf and Lawson version of Aesop's Fables. It has three sections on, respectively, Aesop, Lawson, and Leaf. The writer of the first is G.M., while the second and third are ...
Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1947)
I have a copy of the 1981 printing by the Paperback Press. Here is a copy of the 1983 printing. As I have written of the hardbound versions, this book has simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several ...
(J.B. Lippincott Company, 1949)
There is a copy of this book in better condition already in the collection. I add this book to the collection because of its two differences. First, it uses a different kind of paper, whiter and of a different texture. ...
A Book of Fables
(Penguin Books Limited, 1942)
See 1950? Harlequin books for a later issue of this pamphlet. The dealer has assigned this a date of 1942. I do not see it printed anywhere in the booklet. Notice the number of war books offered in the Puffin Picture ...
