    • Fabelbüchlein 

      No Author (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 ...
    • Fabelen en Gedichtjes 

      Goeverneur, J. J. A; Hey, Wilhelm (Hugo Suringar. Leeuwarden, Netherlands, 1888)
      It is disappointing to open this book and find it, apparently, a Dutch translation of Wilhelm Hey's work, with the pictures transformed from those of Otto Speckter. I am disappointed because I do not think that those texts ...
    • Fabelen en Vertelsels 

      Gellert, Christian Fürchtegott; Nieuwenhuizen, Johan van (Uitgeverij V.A. Kramers. Te 's-GravenhageTe's-Gravenhage, 1963)
      A beautiful paperback facsimile (?) of the first Dutch translation (1781) of Gellert's 1772 work. Fifty-six fables, with one engraving for each fable. I wish I could be sure that this is a facsimile, and not some other ...
    • Fabelen van de la Fontaine voor de Jeugd. 

      La Fontaine, Jean de; Wiegman, Jan (G.B. van Goor Zonen. Den Haag, 1940)
      A lovely edition, which seems to come from the library of the author/illustrator himself. Lively and witty orange-and-black illustrations, with some silhouettes included. Notice the rock-throwing bear on 35. T of C at the end.
    • De Fabelen van La Fontaine 

      No Author (Uitgevers-Maatschappy Elsevier.. Amsterdam, 1870)
      Maybe the loveliest book I have. Beautiful large illustrations in a lavish book. Four types of illustrations: full-page dark, part-page dark, part-page light, and vignettes (often witty and pointed). Some of the excellent ...
    • Fabelhaft, sagte das Küken: 80 Fabeln nicht nur ans dem Leben der Hühner 

      Winterling, Fritz (Dr. Gisela Lermann Verlag. Mainz, 1989)
      I have read the first ten pages of this surprising little book, and it is hard to stop. The book is building a full narrative out of a series of fables. And the subject, at least so far, is: fables. A young chick is ...
    • Fabelhafte Gegenwart: Eine Auslese bemerkenswerter Fabeln 

      Grandville, J. J (Sonderausgabe der Firma J.D. Broelemann. Bielefeld, 1963)
      This is an attractive little bookwith a red leather cover embossed with a monument on which sits a lion's head. The book has a soft spine and gilt pages. It is entirely in Gothic script. The twenty half-page illustrations ...
    • Fabelhafte Tiergeschichten 

      Walbrecker, Dirk; Wilkoń, Józef (Patmos Verlag. Düsseldorf, 1993)
      This is a pleasing, well-made book. The T of C at the end lists twenty-seven stories. The illustrations range from full two-page spreads to single-pages to parts of pages. Their style is playful, ironic, satiric, even ...
    • Fabelkunde voor Jonge Lieden, Tweede Deel 

      Meerten, A. B. van (Bij F.B. Hollingerus Pijpers.. Breda, HollandTe Breda, 1826)
      Purchasing this book was a mistake. It is not a fable book at all, but rather the second part of a two-part compendium of mythology. It comprises the seventh through twelfth conversations giving the stories behind major ...
    • Fabellae Aesopicae Quaedam Notiores, in Scholis usitatae et compositae a Joachimo Camerario 

      No Author (M.G. Weidmann. Leipzig, 1727)
      This is a surprising book. It is basically a student's complete resource work to understand perhaps 200 of Camerarius' fables in Latin prose. And so, while each right-hand page contains Camerarus' fable texts, each ...
    • Fabeln 

      Schauhuber, Alfred Michael (Metten Verlag. Vienna, Austria, 1952)
      "I am surprised at how enjoyable these short interchanges are. They are witty, one to a page for 58 pages. Here are some samples: "The bear is after your life" said the ass to the lion. "Could be, but that he would trust ...
    • Fabeln 

      Schauhuber, Alfred Michael (Metten Verlag. Vienna, Austria, 1952)
      "Here is an extra copy of this book found at the same time as the other copy and from the same source for the same price. I am surprised at how enjoyable these short interchanges are. They are witty, one to a page for ...
    • Fabeln 

      Götze, Klaus; Wegener, Hannelore (Verlag Karl Nitzsche Niederwiesa. Dresden, G.D.R.Niederwiesa, 1968)
      Twelve fables done with photographs of cute posed three-dimensional figures. Aesop's cat becomes a squirrel in the one trick fable with the fox. The best of the illustrations may be of two goats on a bridge and of ...
    • Fabeln 

      No Author (Buchverlag Deutschösterreichische Woche. Vienna, 1910)
      Only the cover of this forty-page pamphlet has an illustration, Is that a bird playing a harp under the stars? There are ten stories here, from two to ten pages in length. I tried the shortest: Das Schaf und der Floh ...
    • Fabeln 

      No Author (Aufbau-Verlag. Berlin, 1952)
      Here is a second extra copy without a dust-jacket, this one in rather poor condition. Except for the raised bust of Krylov on the cover there, this edition seems identical with that of the SWA-Verlag in 1948. See my ...
    • Fabeln 

      No Author (Bertelsmann Club GmbHBuchgemeinschaft Donauland Kremayr und Scheriau. GueterslohWien, 1998)
      This edition very nearly reproduces another with the same title from 1995. It substitutes a composition cover including print and image for the earlier cloth cover with embossed print and a tipped-on picture. Its book ...
    • Fabeln 

      Gaugler, Almut (Bertelsmann Club GmbHDeutschen Bücherbund. GueterslohStuttgart, 1995)
      This is an excellent anthology of German fable. I have read the first one-third, and find it delightful. The fables are far more accessible than I would have thought. Let me mention some of my favorites from this section. ...
    • Fabeln 

      Hagboldt, Peter; Leopold, Werner F (D.C. Heath and Company. Boston, 1957)
      This edition updates Hagboldt's original second book of the series. The series has changed names from The Heath-Chicago German Series to Graded German Readers: Original Series Revised. The cover has moved from a sedate ...
    • Fabeln 

      Hagboldt, Peter (D.C. Heath and Company. Boston, 1933)
      This second booklet of Heath's German series contains thirty fables on some 38 pages, with footnotes along the way and vocabulary exercises at the end based on sequential groups of fables. The pamphlet is done in Gothic ...
    • Fabeln 

      No Author (Aufbau-Verlag. Berlin, 1952)
      Here is an extra copy without a dust-jacket. Except for the raised bust of Krylov on the cover there, this edition seems identical with that of the SWA-Verlag in 1948. See my comments there. This book has a slightly ...
