Fables from Aesop
(Blackie & Son Limited, 1940)
Blackie did an earlier--I presume--edition of King's Fables of Aesop, in this very series of Blackie Stories Old and New, but the illustrations were by Allan Carter, though he was not acknowledged. This edition comes up ...
(Dr. Ernst Hauswedell & Co. Verlag, 1949)
This is a valuable little book. It had better be at the prices I paid for both copies! First, it presents a rare vernacular version of Romulus. There are eighty-six fables here on 92 pages, including an untitled last ...
(The Heritage Press, 1941)
This lovely book often brings high prices. Most of the illustrations are brown on white. Some add a golden background. A few show good wit. I would like to include one or two in a slide lecture. Having just worked ...
Little Folk's Fables from Aesop
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1940)
At last, I have a good, clean copy of this curious little book, which spells its title three different ways: I use here the correct version on the cover rather than the interior title's Folks' or the title page's Folks. ...
(The Heritage Reprints, 1941)
Check the inside of the dust jacket to see the Reprints marking that sets off this edition from the Heritage Illustrated Bookshelf edition, along with the brown cover here and the notation of wartime regulations on the ...

(Edmund S. WoodMinia Press, 1943)
Lovely old--but rather fragile and beaten--miniature about an inch square. Several Heighway drawings are pirated in besides the approximately twenty drawings from Bennett.
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1947)
I already have a number of different versions of Fritz Kredel's book in the collection. This one belongs to the group with a large format. It has what I believe is called a Library Binding. The cover is a plain heavy ...
Fables from Aesop and Others
(Transatlantic Arts, 1944)
A beautiful book that I had read about in Ash and Higton's Aesop's Fables: A Classic Illustrated Edition (1990) but had had little hope of finding. They give the 1944 date, which I cannot find in the book itself. The ...
Fables of Aesop
(The Scribe: Archway Press, 1946)
Eighteen nicely told, hand-printed fables, with one or two small illustrations in two colors for each fable. There is a nice story running along with the text, as illustrations follow two men conversing from the title ...
(The Hyperion Press, 1944)
A fine book. I am surprised that I have never seen it before. Seventy-eight fables, enhanced by twenty-four full-color and many black-and-white illustrations, somewhat after the fashion of Fritz Kredel. The best of the ...
