Aesop's Fables Told to the Children
(London: T.C. and E.C. Jack/NY: E.P. Dutton and Co., 1906)
A small format book only forty-seven pages long (one fable to a page, with no external morals), but the art is fine: sixteen pages of colored illustrations, all (except the frontispiece) containing two illustrations; the ...
Oi Mythoi Tou Aisopos Se Komiks, Volume 1
Nine fables rendered well in comics. Each fable gets between two and four pages and is clearly marked telos at its end. There are the usual comic renditions of sounds like bam, zit, clap, for example in the race ...
Mythoi Tou Aisopou
(D.C. Divry, 1950)
See my comments on the 1950/70 edition. By contrast with it, this thinner book lacks the Greek-English vocabulary at the end. This title page shows several curious differences. This edition does not add a parenthetical ...
Fables: Aesop and Others
(London: J.M. Dent/NY: E.P. Dutton, 1913)
A packed little volume, with eighteen chapters divided by author. No illustrations. Good modern versions of people like Caxton. This book has been very helpful in preparation of the course on fables this past semester. ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Harvard Common Press, 1975)
Reprint of the original 1975 hardbound edition. This is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine approaches the fables with real wit. He plays with them. I have to watch out that I do not use too many ...
The Wind and the Sun

(W.B. Conkey, 1930)
This book is absolutely identical with the Homewood edition (1930?) of the same title except for the presence here of a frontispiece colored from Billinghurst's The Fox and the Goat. That same colored illustration ...
(Yohan Publications Inc.,, 1989)
A book for learning English. There are thirty-one fables with ten simple black-and-white illustrations. At the back is a list of the twenty-two extra words, marked in the text, which the texts absolutely needed but which ...
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) ...
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.
