Aesop's Fables (Japanese)
(Iwanami Shoten, 1955)
The series format reminds one of Penguin books in English. Twenty black-and-white illustrations decorate the text along the way. Particularly good are those for DLS (199) and for FS (31), also in color on the (Eastern) ...
The title of this booklet with stiff boards for pages means Aesop's Nursery Tales. The fun starts with a lively Japanese cover featuring the fox weighing two steaks. A number of beloved fables show up here: BC, BF, The ...
(Brigitte Hanf, 1956)
Now here is a find! Only six copies were printed! The illustration style is indeed unusual as one can see well in the illustration for the first fable, CJ. Hanf's moral cleverly points to Midas surrounded by precious ...
This fifth edition is identical with the fourth except for changes in the price and in the color and setup of the front and back covers.
(Editorial Diana, S.A., 1952)
This is a colorfully covered book of 121 pages of fables on poor and fragile paper. About every five pages there is a full-page line-drawing in black-and-white. These line-drawings are quite straightforward. The texts ...

Nice titles give the point (but not the characters) of each fable. The two vignettes face the title page (FG, well done) and the beginning of the collection. The extra copy differs in having an ISBN number, a different ...
Aesop's Fables To Read and To Color
(Capitol Publishing Company Inc.,, 1952)
A small, almost-square pamphlet that Jim Ciletti was good enough to take from five non-fable mates. The grasshopper realizes his mistake before the ant has a chance to say anything! Fourteen fables and a last page on how ...
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 This little text may well have been superseded now by Esopet: Facsimile-Uitgave naar het Enig Bewaard Gebleven Handschrift ...
The Fables of Aesop now newly imprinted by Vincent Torre
(At The Ink-Well PressPrinted for E.W. at the Sign of the Ink-Well, 1952)
Gradually I am coming to the end of finding--and affording--the various fable works of Vincent Torre. This is another beautiful piece. This book is a surprisingly short 40 pages long and contains twenty fables. The ...
