(Cassell & Company Ltd.,, 1893)
The illustrations are good, though not quite as good as in the Swedish edition I found earlier this summer. There is a list of illustrations on xi, and an AI at the back. A note at the end of the preface mentions that ...
The Lion and the Mouse and other Aesop's Fables.
(Gale & Polden Ltd., 1925)
A nicely preserved children's book with two good full-color pictures (one very good of the LM) and lots of simple drawings, including the good endpapers. Some stories are told differently here: the frog is only told that ...
Old Fables for You And Pictures too.
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1927)
A precious find! This good old rebus does violence to some stories by having to fit them into its two-page poetic format, but I love the pictures it uses and the approach it takes.
Die Fiedelgrille und der Maulwurf/Der alte Mann und der Bär
(Diogenes Verlag, 1999)
The first story here, Die Fiedelgrille und der Maulwurf, seems identical with Die Grille und der Maulwurf, a 1979 mini-book done by Beltz Verlag. It is a delightful replaying of the Aesopic story. Again, I doubted whether ...
50 Aesop's Fables for Children
(Create SpaceNew Events Group, 2008)
This mid-sized edition (7 x 10) takes the art and stories of The Aesop for Children -- simple enough for a child to understand; deep enough to challenge an adult, as the front-cover says. The pictures are surprisingly ...
Il volgarizzamento delle favole di Galfredo dette di Esopo: testo di lingua, Vol. 2
(Gaetano Romagnoli, 1866)
Here is the second volume of a set whose unusual character I have suggested in my comments on Volume 1. This book still has a covering on its spine (broken between 112 and 113), and it reads Testo Inedito and Parte II. ...
Il volgarizzamento delle favole di Galfredo dette di Esopo: testo di lingua, Vol. 1
(Gaetano Romagnoli, 1866)
Here is a strange, delicate, unlikely, wonderful find. How likely is it that I find in a Stuttgart bookshop one of 202 copies of an obscure 1866 Bologna publication on an Italian popularization of medieval fables? This ...
(Platt & Munk Co. Inc.,, 1905)
The curious history of this book goes on. See my comments on the Moffat original of 1905 and on the Platt and Peck edition of 1905/13. Now this version seems to copy that except for the change, on spine and title page, ...
Fröhliche Tiergeschichten für Kinder.
(Bassermann'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1995)
This German edition collects all but one of the twenty-five stories done in ten pamphlets in 1989 for Joie by Shogo Hirata. The one missing story seems to be The Gold Ax and the Silver Ax. The colors there are much ...
The Fox and the Grapes: Aesop Through the Ages
(The Pierpont Morgan Library, 1995)
This is another fine bibliographical tool to go along with Hobbs, McKendry, and Quinnam. Very strong early holdings. Surprisingly little is listed in the nineteenth and twentieth century: Levine is the only edition ...
