The Tall Book of Nursery Tales
(Artists and writers guild inc., Harper and brothers, [distributors]Harper & Row, 1944)
This book may be notable mostly for its unusual shape and for the variation of colored and black-and-white illustrations, which are uninspired. Includes TMCM, MM, BW, FC, TH, LM, and GGE. This Midway edition may be the ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 476
The unusual paper--indeed cloth-like--is the big feature of this nice large book. My first copy with the brown binding is in good condition. Multiple threats occur in the city house: from the cook, a trap, the cat, the ...
Ten Treasured Tales
(distributed exclusively by the American Crayon Co., 1943)
Aesop comes in for three short tales: BW, DS, and TH. Their source seems to be (More than 30 of) American Childhood's Best Books ('42). The first and the last get one black-and-yellow drawing each. Note the end-papers: ...
The Fox and the Grapes
This is a 28-page large-format pamphlet that needs a plain brown wrapper. It is titled (in English) The fox and the grapes. The title-page has a clear English announcement Adult only. The bulk of the book is then a ...

Aesop's Fables/Arabian Nights.
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1963)
Identical with another book in the collection except that this volume is bound rear end to rear end and upside down with Arabian Nights! Alphabetical list at the book's front. Very few drawings, and they are not superior. ...
Aesop: Fables/Medieval Tales
(Great Books Foundation, 1963)
Two fables per page through 48 pages. Compare with the 1967 version, which is shorter, is mated with different works, and occupies a different place in the GB program. The versions seem to be developed from Jacobs.
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1963)
Alphabetical list at the book's front. Very few drawings, and they are not superior. Perhaps helpful for its clear applications. I think one can show a chronological progression among the three copies by watching ...
My Book of 1-Minute Stories and Verses
(Exeter Books, 1987)
Thirty-seven lively stories in a book I like. Ten are Aesop's fables, all with the delightful illustrations of Malcolm Livingstone from The Best of Aesop and Other Classic Fables (1985). This edition adds The Silly ...
