(Junior Deluxe Editions, 1968)
The same material one finds in the standard Doubleday editions (1968) with the exception of Singer's introduction and the AI at the back. The print is larger, the order of fables is rearranged, and there seem to be fewer of them.
(Societe d'edition " Les Belles lettres"Societé d' Édition Les Belles Lettres., 1927)
Lovely Budé text of 358 fables. No notes. Index at the back. Chambry explains on v-vi the numbering changes from his standard-setting two-volume work: The Horse and the Boar was a doublet in the earlier work (#144 ...
Fabeln des Äsop
(Hermann Kuhn KG.s.n.], 1954)
I am including a second copy of this book because I have found a copy dedicated by the artist. The other copy, #455 of 500, is identical and has Gothein's signature with the number at the book's end. This copy, #285 of ...
Tolstoi's Aesop's Fables (Hebrew)
(Maḥbarot le-sifrut, 1951)
Here is a modest book of forty-six fables on 51 pages plus a T of C at the end. The blue-ink woodcuts are lovely; they have the look of something stamped into the book by hand. On the whole, they are very nicely done. ...
The Hare and the Tortoise and Other Fables: Aesop's fables retold by Alice Mills
(Published in USA by Mynah, 1999)
I had found this book earlier in its Australian version, published in 2000 by Global Book Publishing. Now I have found the 1999 USA version, published by Mynah, an imprint of Random House Australia. The ISBN has changed ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1905)
I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to ...
Aesop's Fables, Volume I
(Trillium Press, 1985)
This fine four-volume series comprises good activities for school children based on fables (eleven per volume) well chosen for their human lessons. Almost every story has a good question labelled Something to think ...
(Exeter Books, 1924)
Surprisingly good runs of the reproductions of Rountree's work. This book is closest to the sixteen-illustration edition of 1924? As is typical of Exeter, there is no introductory or bibliographical material.
The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey
(Whittlesey House: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1962)
It took me five years to find this book! A simple account with nice pictures, told traditionally up until the end where the miller saves his donkey from the river.
Folk-Lore and Fable: Aesop, Grimm, Anderson.
(F.P. Collier & Son Corporation, 1909)
This volume, in very good condition, has elements of both my 1909 and my 1909/37/69 editions. With the latter it shares pagination and frontispiece but not the fancy binding. With the former it shares the notation that ...
