Fedro: Animali Nelle Favole
(Giunti Marzocco, 1976)
Colorful if not very subtle illustrations, often running across two pages or around the text. The medium and style look to me like those of linoleum blocks.
More Aesop's Fables
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975)
The sequel to Aesop's Fables (1975?). The price is marked in British currency. This book features rather long (eight-page) renditions of the fables, sometimes with expressive faces. The best might be GA. I have come ...
The History and Fables of Aesop
(Scolar Press, 1484)
A wonderfully reproduced book. The text can use the help of Jacobs' later reprinting. The 186 woodcuts (many for the life of Esope ) have their own charm but are distinctly inferior to the Ulm woodcuts from which they ...
Aesop's Fables (Well Loved Tales)
(Book Essentials, 1975)
A good example of mostly bad art, bad tellings, and even bad orthography. The best of the tales might be The King of the Animals. An example of a story poorly told is The Wild Goats.
Aesop's Frog Fables
(Peter & Donna Thomas, 1990)
A beautifully executed book. I like the letterpress printing. The print and the versions are very attractive; I find the nine illustrations somewhat disappointing: they lack the wit or characterization one might have ...
Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1972)
What a find! The store owner said she had no Aesop except the one that her child was reading. I offered her $5; she accepted and then said she really thought it worth only a dollar! This book adds two fables to those ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Macmillan Company, 1894)
The special value of this reprinting of Jacobs' work lies in the dust-jacket, which is in fair to good condition. It reproduces the garishly colored frontispiece found in the many reprints that Macmillan did of the ...
(Wordsworth ClassicsWordsworth Editions Ltd, 1912)
Several years ago I found in London a very inexpensive (£.90) paperback reproduced in 1995 from material in the Rackham/Jones edition of 1912. Now I have hit the other end of the financial spectrum in this country. I ...
Les Fables d'Ésope mises en Français, avec le sens moral en quatre vers, et des figures à chaque fable. Nouvelle édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée de la vie d'Ésope, avec figures, et les quatrains de Benserade, dédiée a la jeunesse
(Chez Dugour, 1798)
This is a lovely old edition. Among its quaint features is that it is dated An VI to reflect the French revolution. It includes a life of Aesop covering 103 pages in twenty-seven chapters, with a rectangular illustration ...
Favourite Fables and Stories About Animals, containing: The Favourite Book of Fables and Favourite Stories about Animals
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1894)
The first of the two books combined here I have already had. It is a lovely little book of 117 fables with a mix of illustrators and illustration styles. As I write there, I think I can detect four different styles and, ...
