Treasury of Aesop's Fables
(Avenel BooksCrown Publishing, 1973)
No index or T of C. Very small engravings, probably too small to be of use. The text may be from the eighteenth or nineteenth century, but I cannot find any attribution. A reprint of some of Bewick's art from Select ...
Phaedri Augusti Liberti Fabulae Aesopiae
This is one of the many printings under Number 620 in Carnes' Phaedrus bibliography. Here is Carnes' description: One of the most successful editions of Phaedrus, a school edition, by Müller (1836-1898), with a short ...
The Tortoise & the Hare: An Aesop Fable
(Dalmatian PressDalmation Press, 1999)
This is a twenty-eight page book, 5¾ x 6, with very stiff covers and very thin pages. A few lines of centered text appear on each left-hand page, while each right-hand page has a full-page colored illustration. Perhaps ...
(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 ...
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.
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Kaewon Publishing Co.Kyew¿¿n Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1979)
The versions have some nice language goofs and seem well done. A lovely gift. Compare the new book of the same title published by Choun in 1980/88.
Once in a Wood: Ten Tales from Aesop
(Greenwillow BooksGreenwillow Read-alone Books: a Division of William Morrow and Co., 1979)
A lovely little book I first found at the Milwaukee Public Library. Several black-and-white drawings per story, many of them very well done and lively. The stories are told in very simple fashion.
The Lion and the Mouse.
(Ernest Benn, 1979)
Delightful single-frame pictures. I would love to use one or two of them if I get a chance to present the story. This book presents a different moral from most for this fable: a change in circumstance makes the strong ...
(Octopus Books, 1979)
Nice huge reproductions of Bewick with the center of the action highlighted in a second color. The coloring-in of Doré's work somehow softens it. The color graphics are distinctive but not entirely successful.
