Journeys Through Bookland
(Bellows-Reeve Company, 1909)
Thirty-two fables are sprinkled around a lovely book in very good condition. The colored illustrations are fine. Sometimes the morals get developed with concrete applications for children. The Cat and the Chestnuts ...
(Maclachlan and Stewart, 1886)
A truly crazy book! Verse throughout, including plenty of romantic poetry set to well known airs. Lots of idiomatic Scots dialect, and plenteous references to curling. The illustrations are fetching but too tiny. ...
Gli Animali Nelle Favole di ieri e di oggi.
(Giunti Marzocco, 1980)

Venus and the Cat, Two Crows, and GGE. The last of these three grows to great proportions in the play. The first has a nice touch: the man throws up and at the end kicks the cat, which has been transformed back ...
The Fairy Tale Treasury
I would not have bought this book except for the excellent illustrations for its two Aesop stories: SW (magnificent black lines radiating from a white spot) and MSA. The illustrations for this fable alternate between ...
Los mas importantes Cuentos

My beloved one-a-day story book from language school, haggled for in the Madrid flea market. Contains LM, CP, The Bull and the Flea, The Farmer and His Sons, WC, and El Zapatero y el Banquero --all with ...
The Three Bears & 15 other stories
(Thomas Y. Crowell, 1975)
This may be my oldest copy of this book. The obverse of the title-page offers a printing history that makes this book a first printing. It has a bookplate with Leah on its first blank page and some scribbling facing the ...
