The Little Esop
(G.W. Cottrell, 1860?)
Inscribed in 1863. Good condition. This little volume uses the title, title-page design, and other elements from previous The Little Esop works that I have listed under 1844, 1846, and 1848. But the book has been ...
De fabels van Aisopos
(Uitgeverij SUN, 1997)
This is a beautiful little book! How nice of Gert-Jan to inscribe it For Greg, as a souvenir of our fabulous meetings and discussions on Aesop's genre and to send it. Now I only wish I could read it! There is one fable ...
The Hare and the Tortoise: A Fable from Aesop Retold & Illustrated by Helen Ward
(The Millbrook Press, 1998)
This is a sideways (landscape) book of considerable artistic appeal. The color work is excellent. A new emphasis in this work lies on all the other animals involved. The inciting incident happens when the careless hare ...
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 ...

Aesop's Fables for Little People
(T. Fisher Unwin, 1908)
Change the title and format of one book, and you make a brand-new other book like this one. The same publisher, author, and illustrator collaborated on Aesop's Fables for Little Readers, for which I guessed at a date of ...
The Lion and the Mouse
Well done. Here many mice run around on the lion, who ends up in a cage held together by rope. Not quite as good as The Raven and the Fox, but still a strong book for very young readers.
Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated.
(The World Publishing Co.World Publishing Company, 1910?)
This edition is identical, right down to page numbers, with the edition by the World Syndicate Publishing Company with a few changes. The cover is different, the pages thinner, the index at the beginning is dropped, and ...
This book reproduces almost exactly a book I have in English: Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables (1986), a Gallery book from W.H. Smith Publishers. This edition skips the foreword, but its T of C, which borrows the ...
Kettu ja Haikara: Aisopoksen satuia

This book replicates in Finnish the English book Aesop: The Fox and the Stork (1985) from Pelham in London. See my comments there. As in the English, there are twenty fables. Each gets a two-page spread with a full-page ...
