The Fables of Aesop: Selected, told anew and their history traced by Joseph Jacobs
(Macmillan Company, 1894)
I count twelve different editions of Jacobs/Heighway that I have collected before I finally got back to a first edition. This book has a green decorated cloth cover with gilt titles. It is inscribed in 1903. There is a ...
Aesop's Fables in English & Latin, Interlineary, for the Benefit of those who not having a Master, Would Learn Either of these Tongues
(A.and J. Churchil/Kessinger Publishing, 1703)
I closed my remark on my original copy of this book with this comment: I wonder why no one has ever reprinted this book. Here is my answer. This copy, manufactured at request, provides a good supplement to the original ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version Chiefly from the Original Sources
(John Murray, 1867)
Here is another copy of the book first published in 1867. This copy is covered in blue cloth, but with a beautiful golden illustration with title and author embedded in the front cover. As I remark elsewhere, Tenniel's ...
Fables d'Esope en Quatraines dont Il y en a une Partie au Labyrinthe de Versailles
(Sebastien Mabre-Cramoisy/Kessinger Publishing, 1678)
One learns from Wikipedia that André Le Nôtre initially planned a maze of unadorned paths in 1665, but in 1669, Charles Perrault advised Louis XIV to include thirty-nine hydraulic fountains each representing one of the ...
Animal Fables from Aesop
(David R. Godine, 2000)
Here is a fine paperback version of the original 1991 hardbound version, also done by Godine. Let me repeat my comments there, except to say that I had complained about the hardback cost. Now the paperback cost is less ...
Aesopica Vol. 1: Greek & Latin Texts
(Arno Press, 1952)
The standard work for textual comparison. It is hard to know if it is worth $75, but at least the Arno Press version has the complete original.
Once in a Wood: Ten Tales from Aesop
(Greenwillow BooksGreenwillow Read-alone Books: a Division of William Morrow and Co., 1979)
A lovely little book I first found at the Milwaukee Public Library. Several black-and-white drawings per story, many of them very well done and lively. The stories are told in very simple fashion.
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Kaewon Publishing Co.Kyew¿¿n Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1979)
The versions have some nice language goofs and seem well done. A lovely gift. Compare the new book of the same title published by Choun in 1980/88.
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...
[Korean] Sun and Wind
(Bum WooP*omusa, 1987)
A pleasing simple book of the above four fables and TB. This book seems typical of recent Korean work, for it is both colorful and vivid. The echoes are particularly good, e.g., that of the fellow diving into the ...
