Kitten and Cat Stories to Read Aloud
(Wonder Books, 1963)
This decidedly simple book includes one cat fable: The Cat and the Fox on 124, with a simple, full-page illustration. The fox here claims 100 tricks. He hesitates while deciding. Too late, he runs for it. And ...
Stories from Aulus Gellius
(American Book Company, 1895)
I am aware of one Aesopic fable in this fragile, broken booklet, whose cover and first few pages are loose. Aulus tells the story-- Mother Lark and Her Young (34-7)--extremely well. Who knows how long I may have had ...

The Old-Fashioned Children's Storybook.
(Simon & SchusterWanderer Books, 1979)
Identical with an adjacent listing, except that the publisher and paper color have changed. Here the paper is cream-colored rather than white. See my comments there.

Old Friends and New Friends: Tales, Fables, and Emblems, in Prose and Verse
(London: Frederick Warne and Co.; NY: Scribner, Welford, and Armstrong, 1880)
Here is a fat little book, 6 x 7¼. The body of the book starts off well with a full version of MSA, including six strong illustrations, the last of them a full page in size. Other stories along the way include MM, The ...
Aesop's Fables, Including Fables by Gay, La Fontaine, and Others
(Ward Lock and Company Limited, 1962)
This book seems to reproduce exactly The Book of Fables, published by Frederick Warne in New York in 1962; my copy is dated 1963. This volume from Ward Lock changes the title from The Book of Fables to Aesop's Fables, ...
For the Children's Hour

The categories of an early story book like this tell a great deal. Here the sections are titled Stories of the Home Relationship, The Home, Nature Stories, Holiday Stories, and Fairy Tales and Fables. In this last section ...
Fairy Tales and Fables: A Collection of Stories and Rhymes that Children Love
(The Goldsmith Publishing Co., 1923)
This book is related to another in the collection. They share the same title and publisher. Pages 2-32 here replicate the pages in that booklet, which stops at that point. This book continues on with a second half ...
