Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...
Fables in Verse
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)
"Twenty-six years ago I bought a first copy of this book at Renaissance in Milwaukee. Here is a second copy in poorer condition. It has the same printer's error listed below. I keep it in the collection because it is a ...
Aesop's Fables and Other Stories
(M.A. Donohue, 1925)
Here is an extra copy of this book. I am going crazy because I recognize both the drawings (Weir?) and the page tops of the fables on the first forty pages of this book. Then it moves off to various other children's ...
La cigarra y la hormiga y otros cuentos.
(Editorial Ramon Sopena, 1983)
Three fables and two stories with big, good art. The title story is fine. The ant carries a basket of grains. The grasshopper (Jiminy Cricket?) plays the violin. He acts like a rude, crazy child. Lovely illustrations, ...
Favorite Fables and Fairy Tales
(Bracken Books, 1988)
This child's book seems to overlap extensively with Favorite Fables, done by the same people one year earlier. There is no mention here of Amanda Atha, even though the texts I have checked seem to be identical. The fables ...
Famous Fables in Modern Verse
(Nelson and Sons, 1920)
Good graphics for the fifteen fables in a nice small book.
My Book of 1-Minute Stories and Verses
(Exeter Books, 1987)
Thirty-seven lively stories in a book I like. Ten are Aesop's fables, all with the delightful illustrations of Malcolm Livingstone from The Best of Aesop and Other Classic Fables (1985). This edition adds The Silly ...
The Little Turtle That Could Not Stop Talking.
(Platt & Munk, 1939)
Undated selection of two stories presented in The Road in Storyland (1932). Good runs of the lovely colored illustrations; two of the four illustrations here are rendered only in black-and-white.
Aesopi Phrygis et Aliorum Fabulae
(Typis Bartholommei Occhi, 1777)
I was surprised upon examination of this book to find that it reproduced the Remondini of 1757 that I had found nine months earlier in Turin. Both the title-page wording and the T of C wording are exactly the same, though ...
Fabulae in Usum Scholarum
(Impensis B. Law: Prostant Venales Apud C. Lawimpensis B. Law: protestant venales apud C. Law, 1798)
Here are one hundred and thirty-two prose fables in Latin. The book is meant as a device for teaching Latin. The author devotes a page to Properties of the Parts of Speech and another to Rules for Construing--both in ...
