Famous Aesop's Fables
(Loacan Publishing House, 1998)
The subtitles here are With Moral Lessons and A Supplementary for the Students. Twenty-nine fables. Most follow a pattern of having one page each for text, illustration, and moral lessons. Errors and typos abound, as ...
Edition Libri Illustri: Exclusive Faksimile-Editionen
(Edition Libri Illustri Verlag, 1995)
I do not remember where I picked up this triptych 4 x 8¼ pamphlet. I dreamed about someday getting the first edition that it advertises, Heinrich Steinhöwel's Aesopus: Vita et Fabulae Ulm 1476 for the collection but figured ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1910)
Here is yet another variation in a book I have already in three other forms, listed under 1900?. This copy has a simple brown cloth cover and spine without illustration. Both cover and spine read simply Aesop's Fables. ...
The Classic Treasury of Aesop's Fables
(Courage Books: Running Press, 1999)
This very large format book (over 13 x 10) contains detailed and bright art for a selection of twenty fables. I can find no traditional source for the texts, which show a good eye for lively detail and engaging turns of ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952)
T of C. No index. Many one-colored watercolors, with some full-colored pages (listed on 9). Though simple, some of the illustrations are quite attractive. The book is typical of recent editions for kids.
(University of Illinois Press, 1952)
Bigger margins and thicker paper than in the Arno reprint (1952/80). Perfect condition. A real find. The standard work for textual comparison.
Fables from Aesop
AI at the back. The alternating (water-?) colored and black-and-white illustrations are not bad. Maybe the best thing about this kids' book is the morals--e.g., for the man who loses his wig: When others laugh at us, ...
Aesop: Five Centuries of Illustrated Fables.
(Metropolitan Museum of Art: NY Graphic SocietyMetropolitan Museum of Art; distributed by New York Graphic Society Greenwich, Conn.,, 1964)
A lovely book that started me off on this whole romp. One can always find more in this good work. Of course it also suggests many more places to look. A wonderfully chosen panorama.
(Scholastic Book Services, 1963)
A cheap paperback. The two-color illustrations are good simple starters for several tales. Otherwise there is nothing special here. Because they are three distinct printings, I will keep all three in the collection.
The Fables of Aesop: Selected, Told Anew and Their History Traced by Joseph Jacobs.
Meg got this for me from her Berkeley High library. I love any illustrations that Levine does; the added spice here is that he later (1975) turned his hand to a fuller illustration. One can trace the genesis of some of ...
