Aesop's Fables: An Everlasting Collection of 12 Enchanting Tales
(Wilco Publishing House, 2007)
This is one of three books in a series. I have "a treasured collection" but need to find "a precious collection." Wilco books seem to be consistent in using very heavy paper. A second surprise in this volume is that it ...

Aesop's Fables: The Classic Edition
(Applesauce: Cider Mill Press, 2018)
This impressive large (10" x 12¾") book has a significant history. Jellybean Press did Santore's original version, printed in Italy, in 1988. It was about ⅜" larger each way than this book. It had FG on its front cover ...
Knickers and Bobs: An Unusual Collection of Fables, Modern Stories and Old Time Tales for Young People
(McLoughllin Brothers, 1924)
The collection already has one copy of this large book, 8½" x 10½" x 1½". I include this copy because it is interiorly cleaner. For example, it does not have page numbers written into the T of C and every page. As I ...
(Sterling Children's Books, 2010)
Here is an extra copy of the Kohl's first printing. That edition is a redoing of the 1988 version, of which I have a signed copy. This version is almost 2" shorter and 1" narrower. The dust-jacket now features the finish ...

Fables de La Fontaine
(Éditions du Pélican Blanc, 1960)
Here is an extra copy of this book, found in a happy day of bookfinding in Strasbourg. A happy find, as was true of the first copy. These are some of the best simple colored-art responses to La Fontaine that I have seen ...

(Om Kidz: Om Books International, 2016)
Here is a large (9¾" x 10¾") paperbound version of six fables listed on the back cover: BC, BS, FC, LM, SW, and TB. There is no title-page; the book begins immediately with the title-page for BC. Each story is 16 pages ...
Wie die Maus den Loewen rettete
(Artemis Verlag, 1979)
Here is a second copy of this excellent book. Very well done, with beautiful detailed illustrations. A good example of contemporary work with a single fable (and in another language).
