(Grosset & Dunlap, 1982)
T of C. No index. No illustrations. No translator. The ultimate gem in cheap and massive Aesop! This book might be helpful for offering a variety or a specific formulation of morals.
Fábulas Completas de Esopo.
(Editores Mexicanos UnidesEditores Mexicanos Unidos, 1982)
The only Mexican edition I have. It came to me from a South American book dealer working at the Salamanca flea market (the book is marked for distribution in Venezuela). T of C at the end. Primitive but engaging dot ...
Der Fuchs und die Trauben und sieben weitere Fabeln des Aesop.
(Heinrich Ellermann Verlag, 1982)
Lively full-page colored pictures and pithy rhymed two-line morals help this book to be a fine little contemporary representative of Aesop. The best pictures are the last four. Are the morals already existing proverbs in German?
This fifth edition is identical with the fourth except for changes in the price and in the color and setup of the front and back covers.
Le Favole di Esopo
(Gruppo Editoriale Fabbri, 1983)
The pictures are indeed in several styles, and often cover two pages and move into and around the text. I like the guitar-playing grasshopper on the very last page of illustrations. Some of the others seem to tend to a ...
Schoene Fabeln des Altertums
(Dieterich'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1955)
Nice titles give the point (but not the characters) of each fable. The two vignettes face the title page (FG, well done) and the beginning of the collection. The extra copy differs in having an ISBN number, a different ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Gallery Books, 1984)
This book puts together two people I have seen extensively elsewhere. The reproductions of Billinghurst are good. He shows occasional touches of imagination, but seems generally to provide a standard picture for a tale. ...
L'Esopo Moderno: Quattrocentotrenta Favole
(Vallecchi Editore, 1940)
The 430 fables are numbered in the T of C at the back. Pancrazi writes a Poscritto 1940 after his original Invito all'Esopo dated in 1930. The only thing I can find on Pancrazi so far is his life span, 1893-1953. The ...
Old Tales for New Readers: Aesop Fables
(Clarity Books, 1981)
Twenty-five fables are told in a lively, colloquial style, with a crossword puzzle facing each fable text. The booklet seems to be meant for helping people to learn English; besides the T of C and the texts with their ...
Muthon Aisopeion Ekloge (Greek): Choix de Fables d'Ésope: Texte Grec suivi d'un lexique
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1900)
The first surprise in this little book of 84 pages is the Jesuit seal on the title-page. Where does that come from? A two-page notice on Aesop precedes some forty-one Greek fables on 26 pages. A Greek-French dictionary ...
