Fabeln nach Desbillons: Zum Vergnügen und Nutzen
(Im Verlag bei Joseph Lentner, 1800)

(Werkstatt der Odenwaldschule, 1966)
The introduction gives good background. A year earlier, a class designed and published a booklet as a Christmas gift. It contained sayings. This year they are putting together sayings and fables and doing it in fact in ...
Childcraft: The How and Why Library, Volume 2
(Field Enterprieses Educational Corp.Field Enterprises Educational Corp., 1973)
This is the--apparently unchanged--1976 printing of the 1973 version. Let me repeat my comments from there. Compare the five fables (76-84) here with those in the parallel 1964 edition. They occupy exactly the same ...
Das Grosse Fabelbuch
(Lappan Verlag, 2010)
This is one of several books I saw for sale in Germany, but my suitcases were already too full, and so I waited and ordered them here in the USA as soon as I got back. This book surprises. It seems another in the long ...
Fables de La Fontaine

Best in Children's Books, Volume 18b
(Nelson Doubleday, 1959)
See my comments on Volume 18a. This copy has no dust jacket and has stronger coloring in its illustrations. Its last story is Let's Go to Israel (156). I presume that this is a later printing of the same book, perhaps ...
Classics Illustrated Junior, #519
The Donkey and the Little Dog takes up two pages (29-30). In an unusual start, the donkey discusses his plight with the dog. The pictures of the donkey leaping onto and sitting on the master's lap are wonderful! $.15.
Classics Illustrated Junior, #516
(Classics IllustratedFamous Authors, 1955)
BW takes up three pages (28-30). The boy tries his trick twice, noting the second time that they said they would not come again but they have come anyway. (In fact, they did not say that, but rather Do not do that again.) ...
