Fabeln, Parabeln und Gleichnisse.
(Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag, 1970)
A wonderful little treasure put together by one of the people who knows this area of literature best. This work is basically a collection of texts supplemented by a good twenty-page introduction, a bibliography, and a ...
(Platt & Munk: Grosset & Dunlap, 1970)
A soft book for kids that cheats by putting in TMCM. Both illustrations for that are good.
The Family Treasury of Children's Stories.
(Doubleday & Company Inc.,, 1956)
The title page would lead one to believe that this is the same book as that printed under the same title in 1956. But it drops the first 200 pages ( Fairy Tales, Old and New and Fun and Fantasy ) and adds 300 pages ...
Demi's Reflective Fables
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1988)

Once Upon a Time
(Harper & Row, 1976)
Very lively and engaging illustrations mark the two Aesopic fables included in the six stories here. Both BC and FS are carried out at some length. The pictures help with the words before the story starts.
(Saalfield Publishing Company, 1942)

The World Treasury of Children's Literature.

One of the loveliest and most comprehensive kids' books I know. Early in the first volume, eight Aesop's fables are presented and one Russian fable, The Fox and the Crane. The versions are from Jacobs and Daly. The ...
