66 Favorite Stories: 140 Pictures
(Merrill Publishing, 1938)
This is a big, cheap-paper book fourteen of whose sixty-six stories come from Aesop. Generally, the black-and-white illustrations are simple, and the tellings standard. FC has been transformed into The Fox and the Hen ...
Poniendo el cascabel al gato/Belling the cat.
(National Textbook Company, 1977)
Another delightful little book! The family discussion is done with care, and the illustrations are fun. The distinctive feature of this series is that near-identical books in Spanish and English are bound together.
LaFontaine Seçme Masallar [Cover: LaFontaine'den Massallar]
(Serhat YSD, 1984)
About this Turkish book I will not be able to write much. Its dust jacket cover features a composite picture of animals involved in La Fontaine's fables. Inside, there is a life of La Fontaine, followed by fables without ...
The Book of Fables
(Sheldon Blakeman & Co.,, 1850)
This little (5½x almost 4½) volume represents a curiosity, a conundrum, or perhaps just a simple mistake. It is clearly labeled on cover and title-page as The Book of Fables, but the contents (pages 5 through 64) seem to ...
The Constructional Book of Selected Fables
This book is unusual in my collection in that it has no information--at least that I can find--about the publisher, place, author, or date. It is a sixteen-page stapled pamphlet with each of thirteen pages devoted to one ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(Librairie Aristide Quillet, 1930)
This is a rather standard mid-sized (5 x 7) edition of La Fontaine's fables, but it adds several curious features. There are several illustrations, not of fables, but of La Fontaine and his home in Château-Thierry. The ...
El Libro de las Fábulas: Recopilación de las más famosas fábulas de Samaniego, La Fontaine, Iriarte, Hartzembusch, etc.
(Editorial Juventud, 1930)
There are thirty-three fables here from several fabulists, including Samaniego, Iriarte, Hartzembusch, La Fontaine, Florian, and two fabulists new to me: Baeza and Clovis Eimeric. Each fable gets from one to three pages ...
(Henry Holt and Company, 1985)
I make a separate entry for this book because it is signed by Michael Hague. It is also, apparently, a later printing than the copies I have already included in the collection. It looks also as though the name of the ...
A Treasure Chest of Nursery Favorites
(Rand McNally & Company, 1936)
This is a lovely book in excellent condition (except for a tear on 81 and discoloration on the red cover). It is in an unusual format for Rand McNally and Milo Winter: 8 x 9¼. Besides very simple folk tales and myths, ...
Fables Written in Gregg Shorthand with Shorthand Penmanship Pointers. Reprinted from The Gregg Writer
(Reprinted from the Gregg writer, 1940)
This pamphlet, 3¼ x 6¼, contains one fable per page over pages 3-52. A lovely note from Judy Newman accompanies the pamphlet: This belonged to John's mom--just the sort of quirky little thing she would get a kick out of. ...
