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 ...
As Aesop would say: Fables
(Financial Education Publishers, 1943)
Six fables in a pamphlet that constitutes a major find. There is something weird going on in this book. I have never seen before these fables of Babylon, of Greece, of India, and of Egypt. In the first ...
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 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 ...
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.
Tesoro de Fábulas: Esopo, La Fontaine, Samaniego, Iriarte y Otros
(Fernández Editores, 1991)
As the T of C at the back shows, this paperback includes thirty fables from Aesop, eight from the Panchatantra, three from Phaedrus, thirty-two from La Fontaine, fourteen from Samaniego, twenty from Iriarte, six from ...
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 ...
Schoene Fabeln des Altertums
(Dieterich'sche VerlagsbuchhandlungDieterich'schen Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1954)
Compare with the later editions under 1955/84. By contrast this edition has Anmerkungen instead of Erläuterungen and names Horst Gasse as Dr. in the T of C (100). Though the pagination is the same, the plates are ...
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 ...
