Aesop's Fables in a New Translation for Modern Readers.
(Peter Pauper Press, 1941)
Very nice copies of Bewick's work in a book in very good condition. AI at the back; no list of illustrations. The illustrations on the cover curiously include two (WL, FS) not used in the book, and at least one used in ...
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 ...
Die Fabels van Aesopus
(H.J.W. Becht, 1975)
This seems to be a Dutch version of The Fables of Aesop: 143 Moral Tales Retold. Lively art. As I mention in the account of the American book, the best of the illustrations are for WC (22-3) and MM (34-5). There is a ...
The Best of Aesop and Other Classic Fables.
(Marshall Cavendish Ltd., 1985)
The illustrations are delightful, witty, colorful, and alive. The best may be for SW, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, and The Lion and the Peacock. The book and the tape work together well verbatim.
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Piccolo Picture Classics Pan Books Ltd.,, 1984)
A smaller replica of the same title in 1985 by Dutton, with watercolors slightly less well done. Meg calls attention to the lovely pun near the end: By a hair's breadth. This is indeed an enchanting book, with lovely ...
Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables
(Gallery BooksSmith Publishers, 1986)
One of the best renditions I have seen lately. The pictures are excellent, well produced, and witty. Some stories besides SW miss, as when the dolphin does not use a proper name with the monkey. Some are softened: the ...
(Distributed by CrownJellyBean Press, 1988)
A really lovely, lively book. The art is big, witty, and strong. Note the triple foldout of the end of the TH race: the animals from all the fables reappear here. Also excellent: The Monkey as King (19). Santore's ...
(Longmeadow Press: Dilithium Press, 1921)
A pleasing nostalgic edition. Probably a good source for morals (e.g., The creaking wheel gets the oil ). Good black-and-white illustrations of two mice (5) and of the thief and his mother (79). Good colored illustrations ...
Aesop's Fables: One-Minute Bedtime Tales.
(Ideals Publishing Corporation, 1988)
This book has a distinctive, simple, and lively art style. The milkmaid carries her pail in her hand. The best illustrations are of GGE and FG. Do not miss the moral of DS: the good things that you have are lost when ...
