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. ...
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 ...
[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 ...
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 ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(Hurst & Company Publishers, 1900)
Like the adjacent listing from Lupton, this unusual book claims to have art but has none at all! It is paginated and has in fact the same plates as my Hurst Arlington editions listed under 1899? but lacks all the illustrations ...
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, ...
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.
Aesop's Fables and Other Stories
(M.A. DonahueM.A. Donohue, 1925)
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 literature. The illustrations are rather ...
Twenty Four Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists.
(E.P. Dutton and company, 1928)
Most of the illustrations are taken from Gheeraerts' edition from Bruges of 1567 (the three others are from Gheeraerts' work published in another edition of 1617). The high quality etchings are unfortunately a bit light ...
Las Fábulas de Esopo.
(Editorial Epoca, S.A., 1971)
This is one of the wierder books I have. The wierdness starts with a cover picture stolen backwards from the frontispiece of Fritz Kredel's Aesop's Fables. Next we meet Velasquez' portrait of Aesop. Then we find 318 ...
