Aesop's Fables (Well Loved Tales)
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975)
Perhaps a better copy than the reproduction done by Book Essentials, which I have listed under the same year. See my comments there. This copy has the British price marked on the corner of the end-paper.
The Animals Could Talk
(August House Audio, 1994)
A beautiful tape, to which I was first alerted by Linda Ohri. Excellent music and story-telling. The music sometimes moves easily into and out of normal speech. The booklet features simple line-drawings; its stories are ...
(José J. de Olañeta, 1989)
A lovely little edition of thirty-five fables, extensively illustrated with Caxton's work now done in color. He is rarely thus chosen for his art, I believe. The text is a modernization of the 1489 edition here described ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Clarion Books: Houghton Mifflin, 1971)
I immediately presumed that this book was a copy of one I already had. It turns out that I have several copies of the Weekly Reader printing and a paperback of this version but never had this hardbound source for the ...
The Aesop for Children
(Rand McNally, 1919)
A green covered book with 146 fables on 112 pages. All the illustrations are colored. Patience has yielded four copies of the first printing. One copy, from Constant Reader, is in excellent conditiion. This copy was ...
Ésope: Fables choisies
(Librairie A. Hatier, 1947)
Here is a pamphlet for learning Greek. Its first 52 pages introduce Aesop and his fables and then offer forty-five fables of increasing length and complexity. Copious footnotes explain grammar. Vocabulary runs then from ...
Les Fables d'Ésope illustrées
(Librairie Croville, 1935)
The subtitle reads: Nouvelle initiation au Grec par l'Image, l'Analyse et les Tableaux synoptiques. It is just over 10½ x 8½ and has 72 pages and twelve tableaux. The 72 pages present nineteen fables. The book offers a ...
Aesop's Fables, That is to say Some of Them Rewritten in Modern Way (cover: Illustrated Selections from Aesop's Fables Up to Date)
(Pond's Extract Company, 1892)
This is a twenty-four page advertising pamphlet. The title-page includes this comment: PRICE: Nothing; if that's too much to pay, . . .Say so, we'll send and take it away. The humor continues in the fables. They are ...
Dimiter Inkiow erzaehlt: Die Katze laesst das Mausen nicht und andere Fabeln des Aesop
(Franz Schneider Verlag, 1991)
This book turns out to be an earlier edition of a book I have from Lentz Verlag in 1999: Aesops Fabeln. This edition is larger, includes colored art (by Thomas Buttkus) and differs slightly in its selection of fables. ...
Die erneuerten Aesopischen Fabeln nebst den hiezu geeigneten Lehren zusammengetragen zum wahren Nutzen und unterhaltenden Vergnuegen
This is one of my favorite books in the collection, since it offers the twenty hand-colored illustrations similar to or identical with Steinhoewel's original Ulm edition. Some of the most dramatic of the twenty are: WS ...
