Aesop's Fables [Korean]
I like this book, principally for its vivid color reproductions. Four stories: TMCM, GA (maybe the best art), The Bat and the Birds and the Animals (a Korean favorite), and LM (the poorest art). The back cover reverses 15.
[Korean] Aesop's Fables
(Kana Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1980)
This book is in the thick pages competition! The illustrations are so strong and dramatic that one needs no text! My favorite illustrations are from the bat story. The other two stories are FS and BF. This layout ...
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1910)
This book with Arthur Cooke's colored illustration of LM in a circle on its red cover is only my second Ward, Lock publication of Weir's work. It is smaller in format and thinner in inches but not in page count than that ...
Aesop's Fables (TH on cover)
(The Children's Press, 1922)
This book is very close to another that I have, but it also shows tantalizing differences. The most obvious is that the back cover (and the back dust jacket) advertise not Nestlé's milk but rather its competitor Ovaltine! ...
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1910)
Here is another little book with plenty of curiosities. It was done by Ward, Lock, & Company about the same time that they did a larger-format book with, apparently, the same texts and the same eight full-page colored ...
Mon Grand Livre de Fables d'Ésope
(Tournesol S.A.R.L., 1989)
The original copyright on this book (1989) belongs to Susaeta in Madrid, who also printed the book. This is a large (slightly under 8½ x 11) hardbound book with delightful colored illustrations for each of its eighty ...
The Fables of Aesop in Words of One Syllable.
(Henry Altemus Co., 1900)
This book replicates the book from the same publisher with the same title, except that it stops abruptly after 128, not even including the illustration for LM on 128. See my comments there. Its cover is white cloth, and ...
A Type Specimen of Garamont: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, 1973)
See my two other editions from Berliner, using Lutetia (1970) and Baskerville (1971). A first page gives a lovely little history of Garamont, which was first created in 1540, only eleven years after French printing first ...
Lions and Lobsters and Foxes and Frogs.
(Young Scott Books, 1971)
First found in 1991 after years of searching! A wonderful, witty presentation combining Rees' tellings (from his earlier Fables from Aesop, 1966) and Gorey's pictures. Do not miss The Impatient Fox. There is always ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Seabury Press, 1971)
Lively and expressive watercolors for these three well-known fables: FG, FS, and FC. I like best the facial expressions in the stork story.
