(Éditions Médicis, 1965)
"Here is an unusual and curious effort. Zaug has created some 140 30-line poems and arranged them alphabetically, as the closing T of C shows. The collection is preceded by a dedication, an invocation of La Fontaine, and ...
The Tale of Rabbit and Coyote
"The back cover is right: "Rabbit keeps tricking Coyote again and again." Several of those trickster moves are the stuff of fable. In the first trick, a farmer gets rabbit stuck to a wax scarecrow that is like the tar ...
Fabel von Bahndamm und andere Fablen & Texte
(Verlag Eremiten-Presse, 1977)
"Here is another book about which I can honestly say: "I have no idea what to do with this book!" I believe it honors "VauO," Viktor Otto Stomps, by presenting some of his works along with strong full-page woodcuts. I ...
Fables in Frames: La Fontaine and Visual Culture in Nineteenth-Century France
(Peter Lang, 1997)

(Henri Vever, 1929)
"Here is a major addition to the collection, discovered in a box of books that needed to be put aside before being catalogued months ago. Now I cannot remember where or when I found it! I will hope that that information ...
Stories from India
(The Garrard Press, 1961)
"This book is of piece with other Dolch offerings from Garrard. The stories are well told. Each is illustrated with an appropriate full-page colored picture. Especially the early stories of the eighteen in the book are ...
Animal Fact/Animal Fable
(Crown Publishers, 1979)
"I presumed that I already had this paperback book in the collection. I do not, and there is a reason for not including it. It does not deal with fables at all. But it presents a fine instance of the popular use of ...
More Friends Old and New
(Scott, Foresman, and Co., 1963)
"I have two books of the same title from the same publisher: a Cathedral Edition of 1964 and a standard edition of 1965. This standard edition of 1963 helps to confirm how different the Cathedral Edition is. In fact, the ...
