Ten Fables by Aesop
(Poor Richard Press, 1984)
This is a small octavo with papered boards. Signed by the illustrator. #15 of 20 handprinted and handbound copies, by the artist. This book is whimsically bound in rose, with white flowers. Unpaginated. Delightful fables ...
Fables of Aesop
(John Lane The Bodley Head ltd.,, 1926)
A curious book in very good condition. Seven nice duochrome illustrations join excellent engravings that, like the print, are deeply impressed into the paper. The language is often archaic. The fables chosen and versions ...
Aesop's Fables Complete
(J.B. Lippincott, 1868)
Complete indeed! Here in small format is James' version of 203 fables so often found with Tenniel's illustrations. These are not the Tenniel illustrations (though they seem to imitate Tenniel, e.g., on 147), nor ...
Select Fables of Aesop and Others
(Printed by and for T. Saint, 1784)
If this is what I hope it is, what a find! Only two things made me hesitate earlier to acknowledge this book as an original 1784 Bewick. First, Thomas (and John) Bewick are nowhere named. Second, I have a note from ...
The Fables of Aesop with Instructive Applications Illustrated with One Hundred Engravings
(Milner and Sowerby, 1870)
This is a wonderful little find, 3¾ x 5. Most Croxall editions (including the earliest) have 196 fables. This edition has 211 fables. Miller’s 1865 edition has 248. In fact, there are 208 here and then three separate ...
Aesop's Fables (Japanese)
(Iwanami Shoten, 1955)
The series format reminds one of Penguin books in English. Twenty black-and-white illustrations decorate the text along the way. Particularly good are those for DLS (199) and for FS (31), also in color on the (Eastern) ...
Aesop's Fables (Japanese)
With one addition, these seem to be the fables and illustrations chosen for the Kodansha edition Animal Fables of 1993. See my comments there. This edition adds OF to that book's ten fables. This book may have the ...
Aesop's Fables (Chinese)
(Ke xue pu ji chu ban she, 1991)
This small pamphlet appeared during a wonderful occasion. Shoji Iiyama was showing me Yokohama, and we had a little time left before I needed to head back to Tokyo. He suggested Chinatown, and I was delighted. By stopping ...
Aisopou Mythoi (Greek)
(Adelphon Konstantinide[Ekdoseis Adelphōn Kōnstantinidē], 1966)
Imagine my surprise at finding a serious modern Greek presentation of Aesop in Tokyo! There are 358 fables without notes or commentary after a short introduction on Aesop and fables. AI at the back.
(The Franklin Library, 1984)
A curious, pretty, expensively-bound book with leather and gilt and a sewn-in place-mark. I will be interested to compare it to the edition that Franklin did two years earlier with the same authors (and the same translations?) ...
