The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 with those of Avian, Alfonso, and Poggio, now again edited and induced by Joseph Jacobs.
(Burt Franklin, 1889)
Here is an extra copy. The Same as Volume 1 of the David Nutt entry. Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). I am eager to try some of Jacobs' scholarship. There is a wonderful pedigree of Caxton's ...
Fables by G. Washington Aesop
(The World, 1878)
Here is an extra copy that has lost it covers. A very funny little book, most like Bierce in its sardonic and surprising treatment of the fables. There is also a touch of Thurber here. The illustrations are delightful, ...
Fables by George Washington Aesop
(W. Mack, 1878)
Here is an extra copy with a taped, weak spine. A British reprint of The World edition? I note several changes from there: the frontispiece reads The New Aesop. The title page shows Aesop in a robe and turban. ...
The Book of Fables
Here is a second copy. Apparently a scarce book, since prices for it are always high. An impressive array of fables divided carefully according to source into two books, each with four parts. The Bookstall copy is in ...
(Merrimack Publishing Corporation, 1890)
Our Version of the Antique appears on the back cover. I have a copy of the antique, done by McLoughlin Brothers. See my comments there, under 1890? This facsimile follows the original version scrupulously, right down ...
Songs & Fables
(The Inkwell Press, 1990)
This is one of three Torre books identical in format that I was able to get in a group from Scottsbooks. Might it mean that I now have all of Torre's fable books? Like the other Torre books I have found, it is beautifully ...
Rhymes & Fables
(The Inkwell Press, 1996)
This is one of three Torre books identical in format that I was able to get in a group from Scottsbooks. Might it mean that I now have all of Torre's fable books? Like the other Torre books I have found, it is a beautifully ...
Seid klug wie die Schlangen: Ein Arbeits- und Vorlesebuch: Fabeln zur religiösen Erziehung
(Gütersloher Verlagshaus Gerd Mohn, 1978)
I look forward to extensive use of this book. It first gathers some 130 pages of fables and organizes them, according to themes, into some fourteen chapters. The first chapter, In der Höhle des Löwen oder: homo homini ...
Das Hausbuch der fabelhaften Fabeln
(Haffmans Verlag, 1989)
Here is a second copy of this favorite book. I really like this book! The art (on both sides of inserted pages) is delightful. It puts animals into human settings, as on the cover where a pig dives off of a diving board ...
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.
