The American Pictorial Primer
(Original: NY: George F. Cooledge and Brother. Facsimile: San Marino, CA: Huntington Library and Art Gallery, 1845)
Simple and straightforward booklet. Among the few stories is MM (34). There is here no dreaming or counting of chickens before they hatch. This may not even be a fable. Simple illustrations.
Abdallah or the Magic Rug and Other Stories.
(Child Play Magazine?, 1929)
Perhaps a title page is missing. Three fables, each with something different. SW has a bet over stripping a man of (all) his clothes--and gets him into a stream. TH has the tortoise dozing across the finish line. FG ...
This is a typical Japanese fable book as I have come to know them. I am guessing that it is in a series of twenty-five books. They are listed on the last page, which for Western readers is where we look for the first ...

(Saalfield Publishing Company, 1942)
This big paperbound book on cheap paper includes TMCM in its first half, labelled as An English Tale. Some earlier owner colored a few of the last pictures in the volume.
The Red Book of Children's Stories
A very simple kids' book with poor paper, no page numbers, and a binding in very poor shape. Simple illustrations, some colored in. The nine fables tend to give good explanatory background before the traditional story ...
Happy Hours in Storyland.
(The SocietyThe University Society, 1970)
Identical with the 1963/68 version of the same book with the same name: why a new copyright? The cover, the title page layout, the location of the publisher, the arrangement of some sections (but apparently not their ...
Happy Hours in Storyland.

Sixteen fables of Aesop and a few other fables start off this volume. The editor of these versions is not acknowledged. The illustrations are a third set for Aesop by Kurt Wiese (Favorite Stories, 1942; Jacobs' The Fables ...
