Phaedri Augusti Liberti Fabularum Aesop. Libri Quinque
(In Bibliopolo novo aul. Et acad., nunc apud Tobiam Loeffler, 1786)
This little book (7 x 4.5) of lxxii + 120 pages plus a four-page T of C at the back is called here a shortened version of a larger work by Desbillons. Presumably, notes and commentary here have been reduced. Of course, ...
Corpus Fabularum Aesopicarum.
(B. G. Teubner, 1959)
This book picks up at #182 from the first fascicle (1957, revised in 1970). I searched for this volume for years, using a copy I had xeroxed from Marquette's library. Its special contribution lies in the lists--beyond ...
Fables from Aesop
(Oxford University Press, 1966)
Excellent reproductions of Grandville. Index on 207. Rees is liberal in his translations--and often delightful. Do not miss the good (Aesopic?) text of the man in the shower on 181.
The Fables of Aesop

Two Fables of Aesop With Designs on Wood
(Vagabond Press of Lloyd Whydotski, 1818)
Nice cuts of The Lion, the Tiger, and the Wolf and The Envious Man and the Covetous. A curious little book. Notice the spelling of the city in Wisconsin!
More Aesop's Fables
(Ideals Publishing Co., 1966)
This is a small-format book, almost a pamphlet. There are companion volumes in 1965 and 1966. The milkmaid carries her pail in her hand. Facing pages, for example in The Two Crabs and The Oak and the Reed, are ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Golden Press, 1950)
The delightful story of Prudence and Flash. Much is added: the names, a provocation, character descriptions, fans on both sides, a description of the night before, the goal, and some activities along the way. Apparently ...
Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange.
(Dover Publications, 1967)
Lovely stuff. The drawings really are excellent. I saw the first edition of this book from Harrison in Paris for sale in Atlanta at too high a price but have since found it. I have eight different versions of this Dover ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop/Nonsense Alphabets.
(Grolier Society, 1967)
This book is identical (in larger format with enlarged and relatively good illustrations) with the Avenel edition (1967?) of the same name, except that it also contains Edward Lear's Nonsense Alphabets upside down and going ...
