A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952)
This book is the same as the previous book, except that the pictures are all done in black-and-white. This book has the rare distinction of separating the two pages of T of C to put in between a page containing only ...
Aesopica Vol. 1: Greek & Latin Texts
(Arno Press, 1952)
The standard work for textual comparison. It is hard to know if it is worth $75, but at least the Arno Press version has the complete original.
Zehn Fabeln des Aesop
Each of the ten fables here has one, two, or three small woodcuts colored in green and black. Most are about 2 square. The best of them include TB, FC, and Fabel vom Pfau und der Göttin. Pferd, Rind, Hund und Mensch has ...
A nice source. Do not miss the index of illustrations at the back. The text seems to be exactly the same as Hausrath and Perry.
The Wind and the Sun: Aesop's Fables Retold
(Angus & Robertson, 1951)
In my experience, it is unusual that, as here, the sun starts the argument. The story's form is the poorer version: Whichever one of us can make this poor traveller take off his coat shall be declared the stronger, suggests ...

(Rand McNally & Company, 1956)
This large-format book reproduces exactly the first version of the undersized 1952 book by the same people with the same title. The only change I can find lies in the endpapers/frontispiece. See my comments there.
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 ...
(Editorial Diana, S.A., 1952)
This is a colorfully covered book of 121 pages of fables on poor and fragile paper. About every five pages there is a full-page line-drawing in black-and-white. These line-drawings are quite straightforward. The texts ...
The title of this booklet with stiff boards for pages means Aesop's Nursery Tales. The fun starts with a lively Japanese cover featuring the fox weighing two steaks. A number of beloved fables show up here: BC, BF, The ...
