Fabeln des Aesop
(Otto Maier Verlag, 1966)
Here is the German version of the book written by Louis Untermeyer and published by Golden Press a year earlier in the USA. This version follows the original down to the pagination of each fable. As I write there, this ...
(Barnes & Noble BooksBarnes & Noble Classics, 2005)
Barnes & Noble Classics apparently first published this book in 2003, perhaps in paperback. At first I thought this just another reprint -- and there have been many -- of Jones and Rackham's 1912 Heineman edition. This ...

Mille Fabulae et Una: 1001 Aesop's Fables in Latin
(Lulu Publishers, 2010)
My hat is off to Laura for producing this lovely book. There is one -- one! -- page that stands between the reader and the beginning of enjoying the 1001 Latin fables. This page gives the reader what she or he needs to ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version, Chiefly from Original Sources
(Henry T. Coates, 1848)
This book is interiorly identical with an edition I have listed under 1848/1880? and purchased from Laurie. Its differences from that volume include slightly smaller pages, poorer printing, the change from Porter and ...
