Les Fables de la Fontaine
(Gallimard et Librairie Générale Française, 1964)
A fat paperback! Maybe the most compact complete edition I have of La Fontaine's fables. It comes complete with good notes, an AI, and a T of C, all at the back of the book. This book is worth every bit of the dollar I ...
Fables de La Fontaine Avec Notes, Vol II
(Chez Crapelet, 1830)
Volume II of Bodemann 268.1. This is a small book, about 3 x 4½. As the comment there points out, this is the first edition with Crapelet's notes. The remark there that all the poems are divided up into five-line sections ...
Fabelreich: Menschentorheit und Menschentugend im Maskenkleid des Aussermenschlichen
(Georg D. W. Callwey Verlag des deutschen Spielmanns,, 1924)
Here is an eighty-eight page paperbound book of fables. Was Der Spielmann perhaps a magazine? The T of C at the end gives titles and authors. There are fifty-eight fables by a variety of fabulists, all German--as is ...
Classical Fable Stories
(Hubei Fine Arts Publishing House, 2010)
Here is a shiny large-format booklet of 32 pages presenting BW. Apparently the special appeal of this publisher or of this series is that it can be read with a talking pen, featured on the first page. The outdoor life ...
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 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 ...
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1947)
The same as the previous entry but in a smaller format, with scaled down drawings and water colors. The paperback edition matches this smaller edition in size. My clues to the early character of the Bookman's Corner copy ...
Classics Illustrated Junior, #510
(Famous AuthorsGilberton, 1967)
FG is told on one page (30) in five panels. The grapes are clearly ripe, and the fox jumps repeatedly. His comment is I'm sure those grapes are sour, anyway! $.15.
Classics Illustrated Junior, #509
(Famous Authors, Ltd., 1954)
DS is told on one page (30) and in just four panels. This simple telling follows the options for stole, a bigger piece, and I want it too. $.25.
