Best Loved Fables of Aesop
(Grolier Society, 1967)
Identical with the Crown/Avenel hardbound book (1967?). I have copies with both a blue-on-white front cover and -- in summer of 1989 for $3 -- a white-on-blue front cover.
Aesop's Fables (Cover: Classics to Grow on)
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1964)
See my 1964 Aesop's Fables in the Keepworthy Classics series. This seems to be the very same book, perhaps with superficial changes like a name in the series. See my comments there, and check the particulars of the two ...
All Creatures Great and Small: Bedside Book
(Century 21 Merchandising Limited; World Distributors, 1969)
Here are six fables on 45 large-format pages. Authorised edition based on the popular Television Series. The six fables are GA, LM, DLS, DS, TH, and TMCM. The characters have names, like Annie Ant and Griselda Grasshopper. ...
(Apple Classics: Scholastic Inc., 1963)
A later reworking of Scholastic's 1963 edition, with no indication of the new date. The covers are new. About Aesop is at the back. T of C is added at the front; AI at the back is dropped. The same plates are used, but ...
Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
I had found a copy of this book twelve years ago. In keeping with a policy of including even extra copies of numbered, limited edition books, I will include this copy too. I can offer one new piece of information. I ...
Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange
(Dover Publications, 1967)
I have already listed versions of this book under the same date. Those copies, I noticed, have a wide price range starting at $1.50. Here is an earlier copy from Dover with a price of $1.25. A confirmation of its early ...
(Franklin Watts, 1968)
An old Library of Congress book that was never taken out once and so is in excellent condition. Vastly superior in its illustrations to the Avenel facsimile (1975?). This is not a facsimile, for it omits the illustration ...
(London: J.M. Dent & Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton & Company, 1961)
A beautiful edition distinctive for its green, blue, orange or tan two-tone art, a specimen of which appears on every page except 15 and 71. Some samples of very good illustration occur on 46, 85, 108, and 114. Perhaps ...
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 ...
Aisopou Mythoi (Greek)
(Adelphon Konstantinide[Ekdoseis Adelphōn Kōnstantinidē], 1966)
Imagine my surprise at finding a serious modern Greek presentation of Aesop in Tokyo! There are 358 fables without notes or commentary after a short introduction on Aesop and fables. AI at the back.
