The Fox & The Crow
(Jim YarnellOak Park Press], 1986)
A nicely produced little sliver that shows how Aesop keeps getting remembered wherever book-people gather.
(Hillside Press, 1974)
A nicely executed miniature, with some pen markings on the title page and elsewhere. Eight fables, each with an illustration. And Aesop is illustrated in the frontispiece. The illustrations are more original than ...
City Mouse--Country Mouse and Two More Mouse Tales from Aesop.
(Scholastic Inc., 1987)
This is a charming booklet, especially the lead story, in which the two best paintings are those of the upturned nose and the conference inside the city mouse's hole with the dogs visible outside. The last picture and ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(Saalfield Publishing Company, 1905)
This book represents the third publisher to use Godolphin's texts; see 1885 and 1895. This book uses many good illustrations done after Weir and four (59, 81, 85, and 88) after Griset. There is no frontispiece or title-page ...
Aesop: Tales of Aethiop the African, Volume I.
(Flying Lion Press: Sea Island Information Group, 1989)
A curious book that badly needs an editor. Punctuation, grammar, and spelling mistakes abound. Even pagination is a mystery: the two-page introduction that starts on ii is followed by a preface listed as on iii. The ...
The Best of Aesop's Fables
(Walker Books Ltd., 1990)

Folk-Lore and Fable: Aesop, Grimm, Anderson.
(P. F. Collier & Son Corporation, 1909)
The texts included seem to be identical in this 1937 edition (sixty-second printing in 1969), but there are many subtle changes: a new frontispiece, no indication that this is Volume 17, and new typeface. This edition ...
The Grasshopper and the Ants
(Disney Press, 1993)
The dust jacket and author page mistakenly claim that the text was found in the Disney archives; the back of the title page correctly identifies the published source. The same text also appeared in Walt Disney's Story ...
Aesop's Fables To Read and To Color
(Capitol Publishing Company Inc.,, 1952)
A small, almost-square pamphlet that Jim Ciletti was good enough to take from five non-fable mates. The grasshopper realizes his mistake before the ant has a chance to say anything! Fourteen fables and a last page on how ...
The Hare and the Tortoise And Other Aesop's Fables
(Shooting Star Press, 1994)
This is a small book measuring just over 3 x 4 . It contains three fables. Both characters in TH are talkative. The animals are well costumed here and in each of the stories. FS is also well done. 56 deserves a special ...
