Aesop's Fables in Rhyme
(Philip R. Bucci, 1936)
This book looks like the privately published work of a devotee. The book presents eighty-two fables in rhymed verse. Perhaps a third of them are illustrated. The rhythm seems to tend heavily to anapests. I do not think ...
Aesop's Fables (with 48 colour plates)
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1924)
A real find. The retellings are a bit lengthy. The colored illustrations--in the tradition of Norman Rockwell--are delightful. There are great illustrations to show people and several for use in a lecture: FG on 144 ...
The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange.
(A.L. Burt Company, 1920)

(Societe d'edition " Les Belles lettres"Societé d' Édition Les Belles Lettres., 1927)
Now I have a hardbound version of this important first edition, distinct from the two-volume work of 1925 and 1926. I doubt that the binding of this book was done by the publisher himself. Thus it is practically equivalent ...
Ésope: Fables choisies
(Librairie A. Hatier, 1947)
Here is a pamphlet for learning Greek. Its first 52 pages introduce Aesop and his fables and then offer forty-five fables of increasing length and complexity. Copious footnotes explain grammar. Vocabulary runs then from ...

Volume I of this two-volume set has valuable lists on 7 correlating the fables of this middle Dutch verse Esopet to Steinhoewel. There is also a valuable listing of the fables' principal characters on 22-25. Facsimile ...
Esopet: Facsimile-Uitgave naar het Enig Bewaard Gebleven Handschrift Deel II
