    • Kalila and Dimna: Fables of Conflict and Intrigue 

      Wood, Ramsay (Medina Publishing Ltd. Isle of Wight, 2011)
      Here is the long awaited sequel to a wonderful book of fables. The format remains the same, though the fascinating sidebars seem less frequent. For me, nothing can compare with the original Woods "Kalila and Dimna," but ...
    • Kalila und Dimna: Syrisch und Deutsch 

      Burzūyah,; Nöldeke, Theodor; Schulthess, Friedrich (APA-Philo Press. Amsterdam, 1911)
      Here is a big fat treasure to work with the next time I teach Kalila and Dimna. A cursory glance through the German translation surprises me only in that there are no big surprises in the early material. That is, the ...
    • Kalila wa Dimna (Arabic) 

      Ibn al-Muqaffaʻ (D*ar al-Qalam. Bayr*ut, 1994)
      Here is a finer edition of a book I found in Casablanca and have listed under 1993? It uses the same plates, including the many simple sketches of familiar scenes, but seems to have slightly different bibliographical ...
    • Kalila wa Dimna (Arabic) 

      Ibn al-Muqaffaʻ; Shams al-Dīn, Sālim (al-Maktabah al-ʻAṣrīyah. 2000)
      This edition of Kalila and Dimna is notable for its colorful raised cover, with its dramatic scene of the lion attacking the bull while two jackals look on. There are no internal illustrations. There is a T of C at the ...

      This edition of Kalila and Dimna has the two jackals, colored lavendar, facing each other on a cover otherwise executed in white, blue, and brown. There are no internal illustrations. There is a T of C at the back, and ...
    • Kalila wa Dimna (Arabic) 

      Baydbā; Baydbā; Ibn al-Muqaffaʻ (Maktabat Lubnān. 1991)
      Of the fable books I was able to find in Casablanca, this paperback offers the least cataloguing help. It has on its front cover a lovely colored reproduction of a manuscript illumination of a crane, a lobster, and fishes. ...
    • Kalila wa Dimna (Arabic) 

      Ibn al-Muqaffaʻ (D*ar al-ʻAwdah. 1993)
      This paperbound edition of Kalila and Dimna is noteworthy for its many simple sketches of familiar scenes from the stories. My favorite among them has the monk in bed whacking the rat with a pole! Many of the sketches ...
    • Kalila wa Dimna (Arabic) 

      No Author (Dar al-Kotob al-IlmiyahDār al-Kutub al-ʻIlmīyah. BayrūtBeirut, Lebanon, 1991)
      This must be my first book published by a firm in Lebanon. The cover shows a beautiful diamond of animals at peace with one another. Inside there is nothing but text. There seems to be a T of C at the end, which is of ...
    • Kalilah und Dimnah: Orientalische Fabeln 

      No Author (Insel Verlag. Frankfurt-am-Main, 1974)
      There are several unusual things about this lovely book. It is boxed, and comes with a place-marking ribbon. While published by a Frankfurt firm, it is printed -- very nicely -- in the German Democratic Republic. I ...
    • Two Crafty Jackals: The Animal Fables of Kalilah and Dimnah 

      Laird, Elizabeth (Aga Khan Museum. New YorkToronto, 2013)
      Here is a lovely, brief, well executed Kalilah and Dimnah. New to me and perfectly placed as Kalilah's warning to Dimnah is The Hare, the Wolf, and the Fox (22-23). In fact, several of the stories here are new to me: The ...
