Best Loved Fables of Aesop/Nonsense Alphabets.
(Grolier Society, 1967)
This book is identical (in larger format with enlarged and relatively good illustrations) with the Avenel edition (1967?) of the same name, except that it also contains Edward Lear's Nonsense Alphabets upside down and going ...
Fábulas de Esopo/Vida de Esopo/Fábulas de Babrio.
(Editorial Gredos, 1978)
My first Spanish find, on my first day in Madrid. My guess is that the Spanish translations are accurate and careful. Sixteen illustrations, most from the Zaragossa Ysopet; they seem to be identical with the Ulm woodcuts. ...
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 1
(Polytechnic Education Ltd.Samnakphim Phī. Ēt., 1979)
A strange little booklet. The first nine stories are vintage Aesop, finishing with a boxed moral in English and illustrated by (xeroxed?) polychrome and monochrome work of Robert Ayton in his small Ladybird editions of ...
Aesop's Fables/Greek Myths/Bible Stories.
(Si-Sa-Mun-Hwa-SaSisa Munhwasa, 1978)
Ten fables with Korean footnotes, many with clever Checkup exercises at the bottom of the page. The tellings and the art are both traditional, apparently borrowed from a standard source (not Jacobs). The illustration ...
C'era una Volta. Esopo-Perrault.
(Arnoldo Mondadori, 1986)
A big book in every way! There are six thematic groups of between seven and fourteen stories each, every group starting with one Perrault story and finishing with the rest from Aesop. The introduction speaks of offering ...
Twenty Four Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists.
(Ernest Benn, 1928)
Identical after the title page with the Dutton edition printed in England (1928?). Most of the illustrations are taken from Gheeraerts' edition from Bruges of 1567 (the three others are from Gheeraerts' work published in ...
The Fables of Aesop and La Fontaine.
(Duell, Sloan and Pearce, affiliate of Meredith Press, 1958)
A wonderful find sitting out on the table waiting for me! Excellent condition. Nineteen fables with witty and exuberant watercolors, many featuring cute insects having fun around the central action. The best illustration ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Co., 1904)
This copy of Stickney's book is a duplicate of the 1904 Ginn edition, with three exceptions that I can find. First, Ginn is located now in Boston, New York, Chicago, and London. Secondly, this copy is not dated. Thirdly, ...
Schoene Fabeln des Altertums
(Dieterich'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1955)
Nice titles give the point (but not the characters) of each fable. The two vignettes face the title page (FG, well done) and the beginning of the collection. The extra copy differs in having an ISBN number, a different ...
The Best of Aesop and Other Classic Fables.
(Marshall Cavendish Ltd., 1985)
The illustrations are delightful, witty, colorful, and alive. The best may be for SW, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, and The Lion and the Peacock. The book and the tape work together well verbatim.
