Kleines Fabelbuch, Enthaltend 237 der schönsten Fabeln zum Nutzen und Vergnügen der Jugend
(Druck und Verlag von Fleischhauer und Spohn, 1848)
This little book is impressive in several ways and curious in another. It is impressive as a kind of tour-de-force of versification. Gebauer has taken most of these 237 fables and turned them into (mostly harmless) German ...
The Fables of Odo of Cheriton
(Syracuse University Press, 1985)
See my comments on the identical hardbound version.
(Quadrate Buchhandlung und Antiquariat, Mannheim, 1995)
Here was a very lucky find on this visit's first day in Mannheim. I had found some things in this store on various previous visits. Many of the other used book shops in Mannheim have ceased to exist, so I was happy to ...
101 fables du monde entier
(Bayard Jeunesse, 2003)
This is a stout, heavy book about 6 x 7¾. It was once the property of the École Primaire Publique in Marseilles. Each fable gets a two-page spread with a text and small design on the left and a lively full-page colored ...
Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists. In Three Books
(J. Dodsley, 1767)
I feel as though I have been through this history before but have forgotten too much of it! Here is a 1767 Dodsley in good condition except for its separated front cover. It was published by J. Dodsley in Pall-mall in ...
Fabeln: Politisch-moralisches Panorama unserer Zeit
(Gr. H. S. priv. Landes-Industrie-Comptoir, 1819)
What a curious title! And what a time to look for political-moral wisdom! Here are 153 fables on 182 pages. Each new fable begins a new page in this small -- about 4 x 5 -- book. Its only illustration is the frontispiece ...
Fabeln und Parabeln der Weltliteratur
(Max Hesses Verlag, 1907)
I previously knew Etzel's work through a 1990 edition by Bechtermünz Verlag, which -- as is now clear to me -- took Etzel's classic text collection and added illustrations, making a small-format book into a large one. Now ...
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 ...
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 ...
