Aesop's Fables (Well Loved Tales)
(Book Essentials, 1975)
A good example of mostly bad art, bad tellings, and even bad orthography. The best of the tales might be The King of the Animals. An example of a story poorly told is The Wild Goats.
(ArtiaBrown Watson, 1975)
A standard, simple pop-up book with The Dog and the Rooster, LM, The Wolf and the Kid, The Raven and the Peacock, OF, and FS. I wish they also had a pop-up of the cover picture of FC.
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Kaewon Publishing Co.Kyew¿¿n Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1979)
The versions have some nice language goofs and seem well done. A lovely gift. Compare the new book of the same title published by Choun in 1980/88.
Once in a Wood: Ten Tales from Aesop
(Greenwillow BooksGreenwillow Read-alone Books: a Division of William Morrow and Co., 1979)
A lovely little book I first found at the Milwaukee Public Library. Several black-and-white drawings per story, many of them very well done and lively. The stories are told in very simple fashion.
(Octopus Books, 1979)
Nice huge reproductions of Bewick with the center of the action highlighted in a second color. The coloring-in of Doré's work somehow softens it. The color graphics are distinctive but not entirely successful.
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...
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 ...
(Hallmark Editions, 1971)
Attractive. The pictures are cute, but I am not sure which I could use. The narratives are okay. The black-background frontispiece is very attractive. There are unusual colors in the TMCM illustration (4). After seeing ...
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.
About a dozen fables with rather simplistic large-scale illustrations. It is hard for me to see much use for them. One of the first books I remember collecting.
