Famous Fables in Modern Verse
(Nelson and Sons, 1920)
Good graphics for the fifteen fables in a nice small book.
(Les Editions Cocorico, 1952)
See the English-language Nursery Tales in 1952, which this small French book (6.5 x 8) reproduces. See my comments there. In Le Chien et le Coq, the dog is presented to the fox by the rooster not as doorman but as ...
The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 with those of Avian, Alfonso, and Poggio, now again edited and induced by Joseph Jacobs.
(Burt Franklin, 1889)
The Same as Volume 1 of the David Nutt entry. Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). I am eager to try some of Jacobs' scholarship. There is a wonderful pedigree of Caxton's Aesop facing 1.
(Wonder Books: Grosset & Dunlap, 1947)
A happy little book with three fables among its six stories between washable covers. The shepherd boy here wants wolves to come for more excitement! Also FG and TH. Simple art. The Greg Williams version seems to be the ...

Fables in Verse
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)

Die schõnsten Fabeln von Äsop bis Hey
(Anaconda Verlag, 2013)
"This book reprints "Das grosse Fabelbuch, Für die Jugend ausgewählt von Walter Heichen," published by Weichert in Berlin about 1905. Several colored illustrations were dropped. Some 25 authors are included, including a ...
Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...
Aesop and Hyssop
(Open Court, 1912)
Here is the paperbound version of this delightful book! This book has more than a bit of whimsy in it, composed as it is (in verse) by its author in grief over having lost his wife or best friend. Besides some 175 Aesopic ...
