Kodansha No E Hon: Isoppu E Banashi
The Japanese title means Picture Book: Picture Tales. Dialogue. The Japanese cover shows a brightly-colored eagle dropping a turtle in mid-air. The fables feature bright illustrations. Among them I find FS, The Wolf ...
Isoppu Ebanashi (2)
This thick-paged children's book shows its age. The spine is weak and cramped. Various artists present generally a two-page spread of simple art for each fable. The stories include BF, The Net That Lets Little Fish ...
The Cuntry Mous and Uther Storiz
(Initial Teaching Publishing Co. Ltd., 1964)
It is fun trying to decipher TMCM and LM, the two fables among the five stories written here in a phonetic alphabet. In the former, there are three rounds of trouble, coming from a woman, a cat, and traps. Colored and ...
Holzschnitte der Ulmer Äsop-Ausgabe des Johann Zainer
(Verlag der Kunst: Zwinger-Bücher, 1961)
The heart of this lovely little book lies in the seven reproductions from the Life of Aesop and the twenty-nine reproductions from the fables in the 1476 Ulm edition of Johann Zainer. They are numbered, and the fable for ...
(The Inkwell Library, 1969)
A one-man book. Seventeen fables in verse, with a predilection for off-rhymes and even some off-rhythms. An occasional moral shows wit (e.g., GGE on 60). Different: a farmer gets into FG, and the frog and the rat quarrel ...

Fabulas de Esopo
(Susaeta Ediciones, S.A., 1965)
Found early in my time in Madrid. Spirited watercolor illustrations. The one-page-each approach keeps the fables nicely brief, but limits the pictures to one for each fable. I really like these witty illustrations. I ...
Aesop: Five Centuries of Illustrated Fables.
(Metropolitan Museum of Art: NY Graphic SocietyMetropolitan Museum of Art; distributed by New York Graphic Society Greenwich, Conn.,, 1964)
A lovely book that started me off on this whole romp. One can always find more in this good work. Of course it also suggests many more places to look. A wonderfully chosen panorama.
(Scholastic Book Services, 1963)
A cheap paperback. The two-color illustrations are good simple starters for several tales. Otherwise there is nothing special here. Because they are three distinct printings, I will keep all three in the collection.
Very imaginative charcoal renditions. Among the best: The Donkey and the Driver, The Miser, The Bald Huntsman, 2W, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, The Astronomer, and the joke of putting together the ...
