Esopet: Een Middelnederlandse Fabelbundel
There are twenty-six pages of introduction and then sixty-seven texts in this small paperbound volume. This little text may well have been superseded now by Esopet: Facsimile-Uitgave naar het Enig Bewaard Gebleven Handschrift ...
Corpus Fabularum Aesopicarum.
(B. G. Teubner, 1957)
Compare this book with its 1970 revision by Hunger. The Addenda et Corrigenda on the last six pages seem to present the material for the re-editing one finds there. There is an Ordo Fabularum beginning on XXXIII. This ...
Esopo: Fábulas Escogidas
(Gráficas Aymamí?s.n., 1956)
This little paperbound book of 105 pages contains thirty-three verse fables, many of them illustrated by Noguera. I found these illustrations, most of which seem frankly derivative: on 25 a frontispiece a la Grandville ...
The Fables of Aesop
A handy volume in great shape. There are two aquatints per story in the familiar Jacobs version: some show good wit, like the tree/stake for Young Thief and Mother on 87. There is a slightly different version and picture ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Golden Press, 1950)
The delightful story of Prudence and Flash. Much is added: the names, a provocation, character descriptions, fans on both sides, a description of the night before, the goal, and some activities along the way. Apparently ...
(DoubledayGarden City Books, 1954)
Large and not very impressive pastels. I have at least three different versions of this book, based on criteria of price, dust-jacket back flaps, cover design, and binding. This first version originally cost $2.50, whereas ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952)
T of C. No index. Many one-colored watercolors, with some full-colored pages (listed on 9). Though simple, some of the illustrations are quite attractive. The book is typical of recent editions for kids.
Fables of Aesop
(Penguin Books, 1954)
The text seems otherwise unchanged from the 1954 first printing. There is a new cover. Note that the reference to Rieu on the very first page has changed. This newer book was cheaper than the older one!
(University of Illinois Press, 1952)
Bigger margins and thicker paper than in the Arno reprint (1952/80). Perfect condition. A real find. The standard work for textual comparison.
A Dozen from Aesop
(Cooper Union Art SchoolRichard Schiff at the Cooper Union, 1951)
The bookseller writes: An entirely hand made and hand penned book transcribed by Richard Schiff at the Cooper Union February 1951. 'Translated for children by Milo and Ana Winter' at the bottom of the title page. Laid ...
