The Fables of Aesop
(Schocken Books, 1894)
This may be the best single simple edition of Aesop I know. Heighway is a wonderful illustrator. This edition presents the engravings quite crisply.
Aesop's Fables (with 16 colour plates)
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1924)
Once again I thought I was buying an extra of a book I already had. This edition has fewer illustrations, in fact one-third of the number in the other edition from Ward and Lock. It is in excellent condition. The texts ...
(Octopus Books, Ltd., 1980)
This book uses Pavlin and Seda's nice art work from Brown and Watson's 1975 book of the same name but replaces the earlier edition's poetry with a brand new prose text, even changing the name of the first fable from The ...
Aesop's Fables Told to the Children
(London: T.C. and E.C. Jack/NY: E.P. Dutton and Co., 1906)
A small format book only forty-seven pages long (one fable to a page, with no external morals), but the art is fine: sixteen pages of colored illustrations, all (except the frontispiece) containing two illustrations; the ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Harvard Common Press, 1975)

A book for learning English. There are thirty-one fables with ten simple black-and-white illustrations. At the back is a list of the twenty-two extra words, marked in the text, which the texts absolutely needed but which ...
The Subtyl Historyes and Fables of Esope.
(The Grabhorn Press, 1930)
What a wonderful find! I had seen it a couple of months earlier for $550 at the San Francisco International Book Dealers' show. Slight round stain on the cover. This book presents the first six books of Caxton's work, ...
Oshare no Kitsune-Isoppu Dowashu (Chic Fox-Aesop's Nursery Tale Collection).
I see thirty-one listings in the T of C at the (Japanese) beginning, but it seems to me that there are many more fables than that here. The illustrations on the box and cover are simple but nice. The three full-color ...
Aesop (Selected Tales from Europe) [Japanese]
Here is a shiny, thick-paged children's book with bright pictures, including a photograph of an ark full of animals and objects on its Japanese front-cover and Aesop on its end-papers. There are colorful, lively (generally ...
