(Golden Press, 1957)
Here is an extra copy of this book. LM gets two pages here--and two of Szasz's poorest pictures! Otherwise a sprightly book with good colored pictures.
Von Frühling zu Frühling: Lesebuch für die Volksschulen in Baden-Württemberg: Zweites Schuljahr
(Kultusministerium des Landes Baden-Württemberg, 1958)
Here is a lovely second-grade reader from Germany in the 1950's. It contains a wealth of stories with lovely simple multi-colored illustrations. I find several fables among the stories. "Der Fuchs und der Hase" by Ludwig ...
A Little Book of Fables: Ten of the most famous Japanese fables
(Sumitomo Pavilion, 1970)
The final page notes that this pamphlet is not for commercial sale. It looks like a promotional item from the Sumitomo Pavilion at the Osaka World's Fair in 1970. As the beginning T of C indicates, there are ten stories ...
El Cuervo y la Zorra
(Ediciones A. Saldaña, 1999)
"Once again, things come together from different times and places. In Salamanca in 1986, I found a simple pop-up from a publisher I did not know. Sixteen years later I found a French die-cut presentation of LM done by ...
Casper the Friendly Ghost: Far-Out Fables
(Tempo Books: Grosset and Dunlap, 1981)
"As I fully expected, this paperback book has nothing to do with Aesopic fables. It contains standard Casper cartoon stories. I read the first, "Every Litter Bit Helps." It is rather a full story, lasting 42 pages. In ...

(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)
"Twenty-six years ago I bought a first copy of this book at Renaissance in Milwaukee. Here is a second copy in poorer condition. It has the same printer's error listed below. I keep it in the collection because it is a ...
Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...
Early American School Books
(Chandler Press, 1988)
"Pages 6 and 7 of this compendium of samples from "Choice pages from 1785 to 1880" offers two fables. Those two pages are 142-43 of "The Elementary Spelling Book, an improvement on the American Spelling Book" by Noah ...
The Fables of Aesop
(View Productions, Pty Ltd., 1985)
"There was a spate of reprintings of Detmold's "The Fables of Aesop" about the time that copyright on his 1909 edition ran out. This has a larger page format than those others, and it does not paste in his colorful ...
Fábulas: Esopo, Fedro, Iriarte, Samaniego y Hartzenbusch
(Editorial Andrés Bello, 1983)
"The introduction is well titled "Cinco Fabulistas." I think I could understand immediately choosing the latter three. They are prominent Spanish language fabulists. Why take only Aesop and Phaedrus from the classic ...
