(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.
The Fables of Aesop
A handy volume in great shape. There are two aquatints per story in the familiar Jacobs version: some show good wit, like the tree/stake for Young Thief and Mother on 87. There is a slightly different version and picture ...
(Giacinto de Bonis, 1777)
What a treasure! Nicely worm-eaten! Index on 154-6 of the 70-80 fables, many of which seem to be post-Aesopic. Nice short-lined Italian verse. I will have to see a professional book restorer about this little gem. The ...
(Rand McNally & Company, 1972)
This may be my first flip out book, in which a two-page spread includes a page that folds out to make a triptych. The pages are well matched to create two different pictures using the image on the left, one with the ...
Aesop's Fables (Cover: Classics to Grow on)
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1964)
See my 1964 Aesop's Fables in the Keepworthy Classics series. This seems to be the very same book, perhaps with superficial changes like a name in the series. See my comments there, and check the particulars of the two ...

Aesop's Fables: 240 Short Stories for Children

Aesop's Fables for Children
(Dover Publications, 2008)
Here is a fine reprint of the classic The Aesop for Children published in 1919 by Rand McNally. It not only does a fine job of reproducing the exquisite Milo Winter illustrations. It also adds a CD for reading and ...
(The Heritage Press, 1941)
This lovely book often brings high prices. Most of the illustrations are brown on white. Some add a golden background. A few show good wit. I would like to include one or two in a slide lecture. Having just worked ...
