Phaedri Fabulae Aesopiae
(Librairie Victor LeCoffre, 1900)
A compact paperbound edition of Phaedrus with helpful notes and a very extensive vocabulary--perfect for students. The copy has its own history, since it belonged earlier to the High School Library of St. Louis University ...
Great Tales of Old
(Lantern Books, 1988)
The introduction expresses pride at bringing together Aesop, Grimm, Anderson and fairytales from England and from around the world. Forty-two fables in forty pages, all following V.S. Vernon Jones and using Rackham's art. ...
First Bedtime Stories
(Gallery Books, 1991)
Short tales, suitable in size and theme for bedtime, e.g., One at a Time (44). It is curious to see which Aesopic fables are chosen for this genre. The three Aesopic fables are SW (6, with a bet over who can make the man ...
(Apple Classics: Scholastic Inc., 1963)
A later reworking of Scholastic's 1963 edition, with no indication of the new date. The covers are new. About Aesop is at the back. T of C is added at the front; AI at the back is dropped. The same plates are used, but ...
(Masspac Publishing Co., 1984)
One of the most curious books in my collection. Though the preface starts with the dictionary's seven definitions of fable and claims to satisfy all seven to some degree, what we have here is mostly weird legends of Polish ...
More Stories to Solve
(Greenwillow Books, 1990)
Another delight, including a last bonus conundrum. Aesop is represented here in #8 by a folktale from his life: King Nactanabo of Egypt challenges Aesop to come up with something he has never seen or heard before. If ...
Fábulas de Esopo: Un libro animado.
(Editorial Norma, 1988)
Exact equivalent in Spanish of Dial's English Aesop's Fables (1988); the latter was also printed in Colombia. A genuine delight. You help the rabbit try to beat the turtle across the finish line. You lift the fox up to ...
Fabulas: Félix María Samaniego.
At last a handy and apparently complete edition of Samaniego's 157 fables in nine books. The earlier books seem to contain round numbers (20, 20, 15, 25, 25); the last four have 12, 12, 9, and 19. A helpful short ...
Literature: Fables, Tall Tales, Myths
(Frank Schaffer Publications, 1990)
A good book for the fourth through the sixth grades. An excellent variety of activities uses six fables for such tasks as relating animal to human behavior, distinguishing fable from other stories, and comparing fable ...
Diecisiete Fábulas del Zorro.
(Editorial Norma, 1990)
A very nice pocket edition heavy on Roman de Renart material but including entries from Persia, Spain, Africa, and Turkey. The one Aesopic fable is FG, well told. Enjoyable modern drawings.
