(Viking Press, 1933)
T of C at the front and an AI at the rear. About twenty great wood engravings, starting from the reading donkey on the front cover of the first printing! The engravings are particularly distinct and lively in the first ...
Fables from Aesop
AI at the back. The alternating (water-?) colored and black-and-white illustrations are not bad. Maybe the best thing about this kids' book is the morals--e.g., for the man who loses his wig: When others laugh at us, ...
The Aesop's Fables
(Xianggang qi ming shu ju, 1930)
This is a rare, ephemeral find! This 5 x 7 1/4 soft-cover paperbound book has some 290 pages. Each of 299 fables is printed in English on the left side and in Chinese characters on the right side. I cannot identify the ...
Fabulas de Esopo
(Susaeta Ediciones, S.A., 1965)
Found early in my time in Madrid. Spirited watercolor illustrations. The one-page-each approach keeps the fables nicely brief, but limits the pictures to one for each fable. I really like these witty illustrations. I ...
(Ideals Publishing Co., 1965)
A small-format book, almost a pamphlet. The companion volumes come in 1966. The best illustrations in this volume are of GGE and FG. Do not miss the DS moral: The good things that you have are lost when you are ...
Aesop's Fables for Modern Readers
(Peter Pauper Press, 1941)
A valuable little book for its tellings and its morals. The block art by Eric Carle is neither extensive nor really unusual. I wish I knew who did the translations and morals here; they have their own spice. See the two ...
(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 ...
(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 ...
(University of Illinois Press, 1952)
Bigger margins and thicker paper than in the Arno reprint (1952/80). Perfect condition. A real find. The standard work for textual comparison.
Fables of Aesop
(Penguin Books, 1954)
The text seems otherwise unchanged from the 1954 first printing. There is a new cover. Note that the reference to Rieu on the very first page has changed. This newer book was cheaper than the older one!
