Aesop's Fables: A Classic Illustrated Edition.
(Chronicle Books, 1990)
A truly magnificent book--not that different from a book I would have liked to publish someday! Excellent black-and-white and color illustrations. The five-page introduction gives a good overview of the history of Aesop ...
Skeealyn Aesop: A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(S.K. Broadbent/Kessinger Publishing, 1901)
This book reprints a book of bilingual fables along with poems by Edward Farquhar of Cregneish. There is nothing in this book that was not in the original, I believe, except for three things: the covers with their simple ...
(Harvard University Press, 1967)
A valuable book for which I sought a long time. I was amazed to find it in this downtown San Diego store whose owner thought he had nothing for me. The introduction gives a clear picture of the provenance of Caxton's ...
(Adam & Charles Black, 1912)
This edition has a dust jacket but seems otherwise to reproduce my 1950 reprinting of the 1912 original. The colored illustrations are particularly well done here. This is what I wrote on that 1950 reprinting: It reduces ...
(David McKay Company, 1914)
Here is the presumed first American edition. I have the 1914 Tuck edition from England, which seems identical except for the cover. This is a lovely book. It has twelve beautiful colored illustrations, among which The ...
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.
Fables of Aesop
(Choun Moon Wha SA, 1988)
Clearly related to Choun's bilingual Fables of Aesop (1980/88), even down to the book's size and cover art. Again, the first 203 of Handford's 207 fables are presented, with the same footnotes. An analysis of the footnote ...
Stories from Aesop
(Oxford University PressUni-Phone Language Institute, 1982)
A good paperback with a clever concept. Pages 1-80 fit anywhere; pages 81ff. give Korean notes and translations (and identify Uni-Phone Korea's publication date). There are nine fables with simple illustrations often set ...
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Choun Publishing Co.Cho¿Ưn Munhwasa, 1980)
Now here is a fascinating book. It is a new edition (with 203 fables) based on the 1979 edition (which had 130). Apparently both used S.A. Handford's Penguin texts. This book simply photocopies them (with a few inserted ...
