Aesop's Fables (TH on cover)
(The Children's Press, 1922)
This book is very close to another that I have, but it also shows tantalizing differences. The most obvious is that the back cover (and the back dust jacket) advertise not Nestlé's milk but rather its competitor Ovaltine! ...
Aesop's Fables Translated from the Greek
Here is a curious and wonderful find! It has the marks of a limited edition but offers no recognition of the twenty texts' translator or of the artist who did the eight strong woodcuts (?) pasted onto interlaid heavier ...
De fabels van Aisopos
(Uitgeverij SUN, 1997)
This is a beautiful little book! How nice of Gert-Jan to inscribe it For Greg, as a souvenir of our fabulous meetings and discussions on Aesop's genre and to send it. Now I only wish I could read it! There is one fable ...
The eagle & the fox & the fox and the eagle: two semantically symmetrical versions followed by a revised application
(Gaberbocchus Press Limited, 1949)
This wild and wonderful presentation had been on my want list since I saw it in the Heffelfinger Collection in Minneapolis. Princeton Antiques' notice to me was the first time I had heard that it was available. Though ...
(G. Bell and Sons Ltd.,, 1925)
This is a slightly changed reprinting of the original from 1913. Like it, it is a clean copy with good illustrations. The changes come in two areas. I will describe them and then include the pertinent remarks from that ...
City Mouse and Country Mouse

First published in the USA by St. Martin's Press. This book comes with a kit for making the two mice. It can be viewed at http://aesop.creighton.edu/jcupub/soft_sculptures.htm. The soft-sculpture mice appear several ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version from Original Sources
(Lilliput Press, 1995)
Here is the smallest and perhaps the finest of the miniature books in this collection. It has a hand-colored frontispiece and a lovely colored dust-jacket. I count about twenty-five fables here, each with an illustration. ...
The Little Esop
(G.W. Cottrell, 1860)
Inscribed in 1863. Good condition. This little volume uses the title, title-page design, and other elements from previous The Little Esop works that I have listed under 1844, 1846, and 1848. But the book has been ...
Aesop's Fables: The Fox and the Grapes and other stories
(Dreamland Publications, 1997)
Was this bright color work done in India? This is an oversized 8½ x 11 presentation of four fables. The fox in FG is female. The expression of frustration and anger on her face on the final page of FG is well done. The ...
Bewick's Select Fables of Aesop and Others
(1784: T. Saint/1878: Longmans, Green, 1776)
Lovely, if sometimes simple, wood engravings. The best may be TT and DS. This is apparently an early work of Bewick's, not to be confused with the classic 1818 edition. Tripartite AI at the back.
