Ten Fables by Aesop
(Poor Richard Press, 1984)
This is a small octavo with papered boards. Signed by the illustrator. #15 of 20 handprinted and handbound copies, by the artist. This book is whimsically bound in rose, with white flowers. Unpaginated. Delightful fables ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables Illustrated with Reproductions of Fifteenth Century Woodcuts
(A. Colish, 1988)
This is perhaps an unusual fine edition in that it does not tell where its publisher has his press. The texts of the forty-nine fables seem to be based, at least in part, on James' version of the fables. There are some ...
Aesop: 12 Fabeln
(BilderbuchstudioMichael Neugebauer Verlag, 1989)
This book is almost identical with the English version I have from 1989 as put out by Picture Book Studio. They share the same size and format. This book has the same cover picture of the dancing camel but lacks the dust ...
Aesop's Fables Coloring Album
(Troubador Press: Price/Stern/Sloan, 1986)
This is a later reprinting of Troubador's 1982 coloring album, with about fifteen splendiferous psychedelic pictures to color in. As I mention there, generally the art has lost sight of the story. Troubador found a new ...
Aesop's Fables: A Selection
(The Acorn Press, 1982)
I got very lucky as I ducked into an unlikely shop featuring mostly new books and publishers' remainders. A bookcase of older and used books included two treasures. (The other is a pamphlet from Verona by Giovanni ...
Fabeln von Aesop
(Sonderausgabe für den Gondrom Verlag[Gondrom], 1981)
Here is the German version of a pop-up book the English version of which I have, published by Brown Watson in 1975. As there, the copyright here belongs to Artia from 1975. The texts here follow that Brown Watson edition ...
A Kaleidoscope of Fairies & Fables
See the 1983 Aesop's Fables done by the same people and published by Silver Burdett. Silver Burdett had the book then from Hamlyn, who had the copyright. Here Hamlyn cleverly uses the same materials again, as they had ...
Aesop's Fables (Chinese)
(Shan bian chu ban sheSunbeam Publications, 1989)
There are several curious features about this lovely paperback gift that Andreas brought back from Hong Kong. The first, of course, is that there are about ten words of English in the whole book! The second is that there ...
Here are thirty-six fables on some 119 pages, followed by an AI and a list of the fifty-six books in the Citli Cocuk Klasikleri Dizisi series; La Fontaine is #2. Could that be the Serhat volume I have listed under 1984? ...
Aesop's Fables (paperback)
(Grosset & DunlapPaperback Press, 1981)
Simple artwork that can be of value. The book includes several colored pages besides a number of black-and-whites. The tellings of the tales may be most helpful for the clear morals. See the original hardbound versions of 1947.
