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.
(Random House, 1964)
The tellings seem standard to me. I like the twenty or so illustrations in two colors, done by a simple and even primitive method. The best among them are of the milkmaid and the chickens and of the fox and the goat. T ...
(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 ...
Aesop's Fables (Cover: Classics to Grow on)
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1964)
See my 1964 Aesop's Fables in the Keepworthy Classics series. This seems to be the very same book, perhaps with superficial changes like a name in the series. See my comments there, and check the particulars of the two ...
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 ...
(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 ...
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 ...
(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.
Bewick's Select Fables
(Hillside Press, 1965)
Notable as one of the smallest Aesops I have found: about an inch square. The introduction (by F.E.I. ) points out that Bewick's originals were only two inches high. Eleven fables, each with an illustration, plus FC ...
(C. R. Gibson Co., 1968)
Delightful both in its verse and its drawings. Worth looking over for something that can be used. The text and the drawings are well integrated. The texts have some spice. The hare ends up holding up the fox reaching ...
