    • It's Raining Cats and Dogs... and other Beastly Expressions. 

      Ammer, Christine (Dell Publishing. NY, 1989)
      Less scholarly than Animal Crackers (1983) but more extensive and colorful. There is one outrageous goof on 234, which mistakes Gregor Mendel for Gregor Samsa! There is lots of good Aesop here: BC (3); DM (22); MM (35); ...

    • It's Time for Story Hour 

      Sechrist, Elizabeth Hough; Woolsey, Janette (Macrae Smith Company. Philadelphia, 1964)
      Clare asked wisely Which of these stories have been expanded from fables? Good question! The book's third part, Cunning Beasts and Trickish Men, seems to be predominated by stories that have been expanded from fables. ...

    • Italian Fables 

      Calvino, Italo (Collier Books. NYNew York, 1961)
      See my comments on the hardbound in 1959. Apparently, some of the designs from the original hardbound version are not included in this paperbound edition. The cover shows a picture of a dog or fox getting cheese from a ...
    • Italian Fables 

      Calvino, Italo (Orion Press. NY, 1959)
      Really a set of oral Italian folk tales, as the preface itself (x) comes close to saying. Perhaps fiabe has a different range in Italian literary criticism from fable's range in English. A perusal of the first five stories ...

      Craven, Lacey (Creighton University. 2019)
      In Rules for a Flat World, Hadfield focuses on law as created by and comprised of primarily centralized legal institutions. Current insights into law, however, highlight a complexity behind the social movements that cause ...

    • Ivan Andreevich Krylov: Basni 

      Krylov, Ivan Andreevich (Izdatelʹskiī dom "Piligrim". Moscow, 1998)
      Perhaps the first thing one notices when opening this children's book for the first time is the florid borders of two types, one favoring leaves and the other grapevines. Even the page-number is surrounded by a floral ...

      Phrid, M.E. (Piligrim. Moscow, 1998)

    • Ivan Andrejevic Krylov: Bajky 

      Dolansky, Julius (Nakladatelstvi ELK. Prague, 1947)
      This book duplicates in hardbound a paperbound book already in the collection. In fact, it seems to include the paperbound cover at the back of this hardbound copy. It continues to impress me with its art. As I wrote ...
    • Ivan Andrejevic Krylov: Clovek a stin 

      Vrbova, Hana (Svoboda. Prague, 1976)
      Here is an unusual book. The surprises start with an illustration on the dust jacket that, seen one way, presents a human being. Turned upside down, it is a bear. The second surprise is the format of the book: tall and ...
