The Fox and the Crow and 10 Other Tales.
(Reader's Digest Services, 1976)
This book omits without comment the last two fables from Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop (1972). Kent is very witty here, as he is in the 1974 sequel. The Gnat and the Bull, FG, and OF are my favorites here. The watercolors ...
[Chinese] (Collection of Aesop's Ancient Stories). Volume 1.
(Sun Ya PublicationsXin ya wen hua shi ye you xian gong si, 1978)
A really delightful booklet of fables. The best of the illustrations are of the cat's party (8-9), the hanged wolf in sheep's clothing (12-13), the gnat and the bull (14-15), the one-eyed deer (16-17), and the rooster, ...
[Chinese] (Collection of Aesop's Ancient Stories). Volume 3.
(Sun Ya Publications, 1978)
Slightly less well done than Volume 1. The best illustrations here are of the man and the frozen snake (8-9), FWT (18), and OF (21).
(C. R. Gibson Co., 1968)
Delightful both in its verse and its drawings. Worth looking over for something that can be used. The text and the drawings are well integrated. The texts have some spice. The hare ends up holding up the fox reaching ...
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 ...
A first book of Aesop's Fables
(Ladybird Books, 1974)
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. WL is here but not in the larger-format book.
A second book of Aesop's Fables
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. The Wolves and the Dogs is here but not in the larger-format book.
Twelve Tales from Aesop
(Philomel Books: Putnam, 1980)
Both art and narrative are lively and playful. FC and GA offer excellent illustrations from this fine piece of work. The crow holds a sausage in his beak, a plate with another sausage in one foot, and a knife and fork ...
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.
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 ...
