Little by Little
(Golden Books Publishing Company, 2002)
Two crows find a pitcher of water only partially filled. One gets the bright idea to use pebbles. The other complains that it takes too long. The first perseveres. Mile 1 books like this feature easy words, fun rhythms ...
(Junior Deluxe Editions, 1968)
The same material one finds in the standard Doubleday editions (1968) with the exception of Singer's introduction and the AI at the back. The print is larger, the order of fables is rearranged, and there seem to be fewer of them.
Fables of Aesop
(Penguin Books, 1954)
The sketches are unfortunately rather primitive. The text of the fables is kept quite brief: about a half-page in almost every case. The toughest feature of the book is that stories are listed by their clever titles, ...
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1848)
This book has the same text and illustrations as the earlier Grosset and Dunlap edition (1890?). Very good runs on the illustrations here. The cover and title page are different; the latter lacks not only names but ...
Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated.
(The World Publishing Co.World Publishing Company, 1910?)
This edition is identical, right down to page numbers, with the edition by the World Syndicate Publishing Company with a few changes. The cover is different, the pages thinner, the index at the beginning is dropped, and ...
Aesop's Fables in Verse
(Elliot Stock, 1901)
This is a slim book containing fifty-one verse fables on 99 pages. I had never seen nor heard of the book before, and so was willing to spend some money on it. In her three-page preface, Eyears chooses verse because it ...
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.
Use the AI at the back. Table of illustrations on 19. The illustrations have a simple charm, but I think that one of them is enough for a good illustrated lecture. Do not miss Tinkelman's dust jacket illustration up and ...
Aesop's Fables--lessons in living
This book is singular for giving not only a moral but an application in each instance. I would gather that it is also an example of eclecticism in the cranking out of Gift Books. Here we have two translators, two ...
(Lancer BooksMagnum Books, 1968)
I see only two things that justify the existence of this book: its slightly larger than average print (advertised as at least 30% larger) and the great question on its first page: Can you guess the moral? I am keeping ...
