Aesop's Fables: The Miller and His Donkey and The Greedy Dog
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1995)
Here is a new presentation of the same art that Hirata used in 1989 for his Joie set. The art here is certainly superior in presentation to the Peter Haddock series (1989?). It is darker than Joie's art, sometimes stronger ...
Best of Aesop's Fables (Hebrew)
This is a large-format paperback, about 8½ x 10½, with yellow covers offering designs from Arthur Rackham's 1912 edition of Aesop's fables. The second and third pages from beginning and end are full-page renditions of ...
Souris et Singeries: Leçons de vie tirées desFables d'Esope
(Albums Circonflexe, 2008)
Here is the French edition of Mice, Morals, & Monkey Business: Lively Lessons From Aesop's Fables, published by Running Press in 2005. As I wrote there, this is a bold, impressive book with very strong and simple wood ...
Les Fables d'Esope Phrygien avec Celles de Philelphe. Traduction Nouvelle
Edition nouv. avec nouvelles Fig. The date is unfortunately cut off the bottom of the page. This copy seems to line up perfectly with Bodemann #97.3 except for the frontispiece, which here has Aesop (?) on a pedestal in ...
Aesop's Fables English and Latin/Aesopi Fabulae Anglo-Latinae
(J. Read, 1731)
A fine little bilingual (on facing pages) edition offering 233 fables in its first book and (starting on 154) 208 fables in its second. There is an English AI after 267. The title-page and early pages are worm-eaten. ...
The Fables of Aesop with 75 Illustrations (Cover: Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated)
(W.B. Conkey Company, 1920)
This book duplicates one I already have in the collection from Homewood Publishing Company. I will list this under the same date as that. In fact, this copy is in better condition than that one and includes the frontispiece ...
Les Fables d'Ésope mises en Français, avec le sens moral en quatre vers, et des figures à chaque fable. Nouvelle édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée de la vie d'Ésope, avec figures, et les quatrains de Benserade, dédiée a la jeunesse
(Chez Dugour, 1798)
This is a lovely old edition. Among its quaint features is that it is dated An VI to reflect the French revolution. It includes a life of Aesop covering 103 pages in twenty-seven chapters, with a rectangular illustration ...
Favourite Fables and Stories About Animals, containing: The Favourite Book of Fables and Favourite Stories about Animals
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1894)
The first of the two books combined here I have already had. It is a lovely little book of 117 fables with a mix of illustrators and illustration styles. As I write there, I think I can detect four different styles and, ...
Los Dos Ratoncitos.
(Editorial Vasco Americana, 1973)
A falling-apart kids' version. Not particularly good drawings.
A second book of Aesop's Fables
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. The Wolves and the Dogs is here but not in the larger-format book.
