Das Ferkel im Stachelpelz: Fabeln und kleine Geschichten aus Russland
(Verlag Ludwig Auer, 1992)
"Here is a book that cost three times its value to ship from the bookdealer to here! There are twenty stories here. I tried several of the stories early in the book. They strike me as bedtime reading stories for children. ...
(Foreign Languages Press, 1961)
"This book contains eight fables originally published between 1935 and 1945. A brief biography of Ho Yi at the end situates his literary development, though it is no help in understanding the book's title. It and his ...
Der Kuckuck sprach zur Nachtigall: Fabeln von Luther bis Heine
(Aufbau Verlag, 1988)
Here is an extra copy of this book. Pages 175-85 offer in a T of C an overview of the extensive contents of this paperback. There are a lot of texts here! They seem to be all from writers of German. Other than a list ...

Fabeln von August Strindberg
"Here is a little curiosity. Strindberg is known outside Sweden primarily as a playwright. I find one copy available on abe, where it is listed as published in 1930. The dealer there aptly describes the book in these ...
Fables sous rêve (1960-1970)
"Oops! This book seems to have the form of a journal. A casual glance does not find more than a metaphorical sense to "fable" here. I keep it in the collection to warn off the next collector!"
Von Tieren und Blumen: 18 Fabeln erzählt von Hans Licht
(Festungsverlag Salzburg, 1946)
I have known of Hans Licht -- and I presume it is the correct Hans Licht -- from his history of sexual life in ancient Greece. Here are eighteen longish fables. I tried the first: country mouse and mole. Well done! ...
(J.B. Lippincott Company, 1949)
"There are already two copies of this book in the collection, but they are different. Both of them have non-pictorial cloth covers and dust jackets. This copy, by contrast, has on its cover a black-and-white rendition ...
