Little Fables for Little Folks
(The Religious Tract Society, 1865)
This is an eighteen-page large format toy book printed by Kronheim & Company in London. Actually, six of the pages are chromolithograph inserts printed on only one side. Even the text-pages are printed on only one side. ...
Los Dos Ratoncitos.
(Editorial Vasco Americana, 1973)
A falling-apart kids' version. Not particularly good drawings.
A second book of Aesop's Fables
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. The Wolves and the Dogs is here but not in the larger-format book.
More Aesop's Fables
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975)
The sequel to Aesop's Fables (1975?). The price is marked in British currency. This book features rather long (eight-page) renditions of the fables, sometimes with expressive faces. The best might be GA. I have come ...
Fables of Aesop
(Che Sa Yang Aw Sa CompanySisa Yongu, 1990)
This edition resets Handford's translations in apparently excellent English: I cannot find any Konglish goofs! Like the 1980/88 Choun edition, it drops the last four of Handford's 207 fables. Line numbers make for easy ...
(Choun Publishing, 1982)
Forty fables with simple illustrations (the same used as cover art in other Choun editions of 1980/88 and 1988). The text, the art, and the typeset differ in the first twenty and the last twenty fables. Many in the first ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean Bilingual]
(Sam Joong Dang Publications Co. Ltd.Samjungdang, 1987)
A nicely produced paperback. T of C at the beginning. Ninety-seven fables. Some fables have morals, while others do not. I thought the T of C and texts might be lifted from a normal English edition, but inspection ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Mun Gong Sa, 1989)
Typical of recent Korean work: one design echoes the facing full page. The art is bright, sometimes strong and lively, sometimes only cute. There are five fables here: The Fox, the Rooster, and the Dog; TH; The Cat and ...
Les Fables d'Ésope mises en Français, avec le sens moral en quatre vers, et des figures à chaque fable. Nouvelle édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée de la vie d'Ésope, avec figures, et les quatrains de Benserade, dédiée a la jeunesse
(Chez Dugour, 1798)
This is a lovely old edition. Among its quaint features is that it is dated An VI to reflect the French revolution. It includes a life of Aesop covering 103 pages in twenty-seven chapters, with a rectangular illustration ...
Favourite Fables and Stories About Animals, containing: The Favourite Book of Fables and Favourite Stories about Animals
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1894)
The first of the two books combined here I have already had. It is a lovely little book of 117 fables with a mix of illustrators and illustration styles. As I write there, I think I can detect four different styles and, ...
