Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & DunlapPaperback Press, 1981)
Simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several colored pages besides a number of black-and-whites. The tellings of the tales may be most helpful for the clear morals. See the original hardbound versions of 1947.
Favole di Esopo
(Einaudi Ragazzi, 1994)
This book reproduces in smaller paperback form the 1989 large hardbound book published by Barron. The paperback's size is 4¼ x 7¼; these proportions make for a narrow portrait format, and so the original images are regularly ...
Aesop's Fables: The Miller and His Donkey and The Greedy Dog
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1994)
Here is the first printing of a pamphlet whose republication I have listed under 1995 from the same publisher. Books in this edition and this year cost $2.50. When reprinted a year later, they cost $2.95. See my comments there.
(Penguin Books, 1996)
This inexpensive version takes over the text from Zipes' Signet Classic for the New American Library. This use of his text is not surprising, since NAL belongs to Penguin Books. This edition strips away the illustrations; ...
Aesop's Fables: A Selection
(The Acorn Press, 1982)
I got very lucky as I ducked into an unlikely shop featuring mostly new books and publishers' remainders. A bookcase of older and used books included two treasures. (The other is a pamphlet from Verona by Giovanni ...
(Picture Book Studio, 1989)
Identical except for its size (4.75 x 4.375 ) with the larger format book printed in Belgium. Another victory for Neugebauer. A wonderful book. Zwerger's twelve ink-and-wash illustrations are witty and delightful. ...
12 Fables of Aesop
(Museum of Modern Artdist. by Doubleday & Company, 1954)
The style is distinctive, but alas I do not find one good illustration (or story for that matter) that I would want to use. People should have a chance to see this book, but so far at least I do not find in it the fantasy ...
(London: Humphrey Milford/ Oxford University Press, 1925)
Apparently the (original?) British version of the book I have in the American edition from Boni and Liveright (1925). Some pages are slightly soiled. This has a cheaper cardboard cover with Trery designs. See my comments ...
(Octopus Books, Ltd., 1980)
This book uses Pavlin and Seda's nice art work from Brown and Watson's 1975 book of the same name but replaces the earlier edition's poetry with a brand new prose text, even changing the name of the first fable from The ...
Aesop's Fables (with 16 colour plates)
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1924)
Once again I thought I was buying an extra of a book I already had. This edition has fewer illustrations, in fact one-third of the number in the other edition from Ward and Lock. It is in excellent condition. The texts ...
