Esopovi Ba?ky (Ukrainian Aesop's Fables)
This is a small book, about 5 x 6¾, with 247 pages of Aesop's fables followed by a T of C. The brown silhouette on the cloth cover -- of two mounted Greek horsemen and one soldier with a kneeling horse -- gives a sense ...
Isoho Monogatori, I
(Beizando, Taisho 14Beizandō, 1925)
The three volumes of this set are a facsimile reingraving of the 1659 Haseda Daigaku Toshokan copy of Aesop's fables. The imprint reads Ito San'emon, Manji 2. It is done in Oriental style on double leaves in a heavier ...
Esopovi Baïky (Ukrainian Aesop's Fables)
This seems to be an earlier collaboration among a team whose work was published by the same company in 1990. Again, the art is typified by a classical bent and by geometric patterns, often echoing those of classical Greek ...
Here are thirty-six fables on some 119 pages, followed by an AI and a list of the fifty-six books in the Citli Cocuk Klasikleri Dizisi series; La Fontaine is #2. Could that be the Serhat volume I have listed under 1984? ...
The Fables of Aesop: Selected, told anew and their history traced by Joseph Jacobs
(Godfrey Cave Associates, 1979)
The original of this book was published in 1894 by Macmillan. It has been reprinted quite often, for example by Schocken. This is the best facsimile reprint I have seen. Heighway's brilliant black-and-white work comes ...
(University of Washington Press, 1997)
Windmill Books originally published Lawrence's ink-on-paper illustrations for eighteen fables in 1970 (see my comments there), but he had done twenty-three. Now they are all presented here. Do not miss the fine frog ...
Fables of Aesop
(Penguin Books, 1954)
This is the only hardbound Penguin edition that I think I have ever seen! It looks from several indications as though it were printed for some country in Asia. It has some Oriental (?) characters on the verso of the ...
(Platt & Nourse Co., 1913)
The curious history of this book goes on even further than I had thought! Platt had three different partners in a fairly short time: Peck in 1913, Nourse after that, with Munk apparently still later. This copy lacks the ...
Aesop's Fables: The Hare and the Tortoise and The Travelers and the Bear
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1995)
Here is a new presentation of the same art that Hirata used in 1989 for his Joie set. The art here is certainly superior in presentation to the Peter Haddock series (1989?). It is darker than Joie's art, sometimes stronger ...
(Watermill Press, 1985)
The urge to put out cheap editions of Aesop continues! The versions here seem to be bent toward good story-telling. Are they taken from some earlier edition?
