Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
I had found a copy of this book twelve years ago. In keeping with a policy of including even extra copies of numbered, limited edition books, I will include this copy too. I can offer one new piece of information. I ...
Skeealyn Aesop: A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(S.K. Broadbent/Kessinger Publishing, 1901)
This book reprints a book of bilingual fables along with poems by Edward Farquhar of Cregneish. There is nothing in this book that was not in the original, I believe, except for three things: the covers with their simple ...

Windmill Books originally published Lawrence's ink-on-paper illustrations for eighteen fables in 1970 (see my comments there), but he had done twenty-three. Now they are all presented here. Do not miss the fine frog ...

(Macmillan agus a Gcomhlucht, Teo.ar n-a fhoillsiú do mhuinntir Ch. S. Ó Fallamhain Teo.,, 1935)
Gaelic readers will be able to understand more from the bibliographical data for this book than I can. I can see that it is a reader -- perhaps a school reader for the third and fourth grades? -- of some 32 pages offering ...
Esopovi Ba?ky (Ukrainian Aesop's Fables)
This is a small book, about 5 x 6¾, with 247 pages of Aesop's fables followed by a T of C. The brown silhouette on the cloth cover -- of two mounted Greek horsemen and one soldier with a kneeling horse -- gives a sense ...

Fables of Aesop
