Aesop's Fables in Song
(Shawnee Press, 1973)
For solo or unison voices with piano and guitar (or Autoharp). Piano accopaniments by Lou Hayward. I had found Mysels' record, produced in 1975, several years ago, done by the same press. As there are twenty-four songs ...
The Fables of Aesop
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 of his illustrations. Now in 1996 I have done a ...
More Fables of Aesop
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1974)
The sequel to the earlier Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop (1972). Just a wonderful book! Almost every story and illustration could be well used in a lecture. My favorite is The Cat and Venus. There is real wit in the ...
(ArtiaBrown Watson, 1975)
A standard, simple pop-up book with The Dog and the Rooster, LM, The Wolf and the Kid, The Raven and the Peacock, OF, and FS. I wish they also had a pop-up of the cover picture of FC.
(Octopus Books, 1979)
Nice huge reproductions of Bewick with the center of the action highlighted in a second color. The coloring-in of Doré's work somehow softens it. The color graphics are distinctive but not entirely successful.
(Windmill Books, 1970)
The flyleaf is right: the eighteen tales here are illustrated with haunting cubist imagery. One especially good technique, used four times, expands a first illustration into a larger second one in a different color. ...
City Mouse--Country Mouse.
(Scholastic Book Services, 1970)
Meant for little kids. Pleasant water-colors with cartoon statements. The illustration style is itself that of kids. I enjoy the assemblies in BC. Also included is LM. Packaged with a 33 rpm recording.
The Fables of Aesop
(Dorset Press, 1975)
This is a clear, crisp reprinting -- with almost no margins -- of Gambit's great book of 1975. The illustrations are still wonderful! As I wrote there, this is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine ...
Aesop's Fables: 30 Fables from Thomas Bewick's Works, Volume IV (Memorial Edition).
(Workshop of Letterio Calapai, 1973)
Excellent prints from the original blocks of The Fables of Aesop (1818). The title's reference to Volume IV is apparently to Thomas Ward's five-volume memorial edition of Bewick's works, published in 1885-7. The best of ...
