Ten Best-Loved Aesop's Fables
(Educational Insights, 1983)
For use with an excellent tape. The stories are well told, each with one simple colored picture. There are many changes from traditional stories: How can the crow hold an apple in his beak and eat it at the same time? ...
Le Favole di Esopo
(Gruppo Editoriale Fabbri, 1983)
The pictures are indeed in several styles, and often cover two pages and move into and around the text. I like the guitar-playing grasshopper on the very last page of illustrations. Some of the others seem to tend to a ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Gallery Books, 1984)
This book puts together two people I have seen extensively elsewhere. The reproductions of Billinghurst are good. He shows occasional touches of imagination, but seems generally to provide a standard picture for a tale. ...
(The Franklin Library, 1984)
A curious, pretty, expensively-bound book with leather and gilt and a sewn-in place-mark. I will be interested to compare it to the edition that Franklin did two years earlier with the same authors (and the same translations?) ...
(Serhat A.S., 1983)
This is an unassuming Turkish paperback edition of Aesop's fables without illustrations. Fables are offered on 5 through 95. There is neither a T of C nor an AI. Is the fox in the front cover's illustration smoking a ...
Fábulas Completas de Esopo.
(Editores Mexicanos UnidesEditores Mexicanos Unidos, 1982)
The only Mexican edition I have. It came to me from a South American book dealer working at the Salamanca flea market (the book is marked for distribution in Venezuela). T of C at the end. Primitive but engaging dot ...
Der Fuchs und die Trauben und sieben weitere Fabeln des Aesop.
(Heinrich Ellermann Verlag, 1982)
Lively full-page colored pictures and pithy rhymed two-line morals help this book to be a fine little contemporary representative of Aesop. The best pictures are the last four. Are the morals already existing proverbs in German?
Aesop's Fables (Japanese)
With one addition, these seem to be the fables and illustrations chosen for the Kodansha edition Animal Fables of 1993. See my comments there. This edition adds OF to that book's ten fables. This book may have the ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(The Chamberlain Press, 1984)
I have hoped to find a copy of this book for a long time, in fact since I purchased prints of the ten fables from Ms. Chamberlain herself in 1989. Though I knew that they had been collected into a book, I thought it had ...
Modern Fables: Twenty of Aesop's Fables Brought Up to Date
(Peoples Pub. GroupThe Peoples Publishing Group, Inc., 1987)
This book is a pleasant surprise! It offers engaging versions of twenty basic Aesopic fables in terms that a grade school student of the mid-twentieth-century might well understand. The references are dated now, and ...
