A Book of Fables
(Penguin Books Limited, 1942)
See 1950? Harlequin books for a later issue of this pamphlet. The dealer has assigned this a date of 1942. I do not see it printed anywhere in the booklet. Notice the number of war books offered in the Puffin Picture ...
a Fox & a Sick Lion
(Corydon Press, Indiana University, 1944)
A beautifully executed and preserved piece of work. L'Estrange's version is typically direct and involving. Low's colored wood-cut is bold and dramatic. For more of his work, see Harvest of World Folk Tales (1949/55).
The eagle & the fox & the fox and the eagle: two semantically symmetrical versions followed by a revised application
(Gaberbocchus Press Limited, 1949)
This wild and wonderful presentation had been on my want list since I saw it in the Heffelfinger Collection in Minneapolis. Princeton Antiques' notice to me was the first time I had heard that it was available. Though ...
(Editorial Tor, 1948)

Ésope: Fables choisies
(Librairie A. Hatier, 1947)
Here is a pamphlet for learning Greek. Its first 52 pages introduce Aesop and his fables and then offer forty-five fables of increasing length and complexity. Copious footnotes explain grammar. Vocabulary runs then from ...
Fables of Aesop
(The Scribe: Archway Press, 1946)
Eighteen nicely told, hand-printed fables, with one or two small illustrations in two colors for each fable. There is a nice story running along with the text, as illustrations follow two men conversing from the title ...
(The Hyperion Press, 1944)
A fine book. I am surprised that I have never seen it before. Seventy-eight fables, enhanced by twenty-four full-color and many black-and-white illustrations, somewhat after the fashion of Fritz Kredel. The best of the ...
Aesop's Animal Fables Picture and Story Book
(Juvenile Productions Ltd., 1947)
This delightful picture book makes a point of putting appropriate clothes on its animals, right from the suspenders under the turtle's shell on the cover. The camel wears a fez! The stork wears a hat when she visits the ...
