Young Folk's Mammoth Story Book
(Goldsmith Publishing Co., 1925)
A fascinating book, sold in Indianapolis and given as a gift. There is a list of contents at the front but no page numbers. There are no Aesop illustrations, but the morals of the ten stories are fascinating, especially ...
12 Fables en Sabir Franco-Arabe et Ben-Ali à l'École, Scène Comique en Sabir
(Art et ComédieEdicom Direct S.A., 1988)
Here are twelve fables in Franco-Arabic pidgin. I am surprised at how much sense I can make out of these texts. There is a short translation of Arabic words into French on the first page. The selection here is heavy on ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(La Pochothèque: Le Livre de Poche, 1985)
Eighteen months after I picked up this book, I discover that it has the Oudry illustrations! From all I can tell, they are all there. How lovely! There are also over two hundred pages of notes in the back. I am afraid ...
Stories for the Children's Hour
(Metropolitan Church Association, 1930)
A hoot! All sorts of pious stories, including the evils of tobacco, what we want little girls and little boys to be, the gingercake man, the Last Supper, and Gethsemane. In the middle (34) of it all comes The Bundle ...
Fábulas de Esopo
(Casa Editorial Ramon Sopena, 1925)
"Novisima edición cuidadosamente revisada e ilustrada con 133 grabados." Sopena has done several books that are alike. A first feature one may notice is the thick pages. This substantial book has only 70 pages! Sopena's ...
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895)
This book compares most closely with my 1896 Aesop's Fables from Donohue, Henneberry, and Company. See my comments there. This book has a strange first page with four rabbits around a cartoon of grandpa kicking a football. ...
Highlights for Children, May, 1971
This edition contains The Donkey and His Shadow: An Old Fable (13). There is one good paragraph of text and a simple black-and-yellow illustration. In the maze that is Schroeder's, I consider this a find!
The International Library of Masterpieces, Literature, Art, and Rare Manuscripts.
(The International Bibliophile Society, 1901)
Fourteen fables show up (90-96) under Aesop in this volume that handles A up to Antar. In LS (92), the lion was in league with several, but only three others, unnamed, happened to be present at this time of the deer's ...
The Osborne Collection of Early Children's Books, 1566-1910: A Catalogue, Volume II
(Toronto Public Library, 1975)
I am delighted to have found these two volumes. The bibliographical work is very nicely done. Fables comprise the first chapter (563-71). Now the catalogue shows that the collection can boast of early--but not first--editions ...
The Winston Readers: Third Reader Manual.
(John C. Winston, 1919)
A pamphlet for use with the reader published in the same year. Unfortunately, I do not yet have the latter! Plenty of exercises, questions, and word-lists. The fable material is on 10-11, 13, 16, 19-20. The only ...
