The Father, his Son and their Donkey/Hermes and the Wood-cutter/The Rich Man and his Servant.
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Nice changes inculturate these fables: Ibrahim and Ali are given native skin and clothing. Hermes becomes the god of a river. The servant and the rich man con each other.
Treasury of Aesop's Fables
(Avenel BooksCrown Publishing, 1973)
No index or T of C. Very small engravings, probably too small to be of use. The text may be from the eighteenth or nineteenth century, but I cannot find any attribution. A reprint of some of Bewick's art from Select ...
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...
[Korean] Sun and Wind
(Bum WooP*omusa, 1987)
A pleasing simple book of the above four fables and TB. This book seems typical of recent Korean work, for it is both colorful and vivid. The echoes are particularly good, e.g., that of the fellow diving into the ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Macmillan Company, 1894)
The special value of this reprinting of Jacobs' work lies in the dust-jacket, which is in fair to good condition. It reproduces the garishly colored frontispiece found in the many reprints that Macmillan did of the ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and a Print Before Each Fable
(Published by Joseph M'Dowell, 1836)
First, there is this bad news: 195-201 are missing. This book uses apparently the same after Kirkall plates that were used in my Cowperthwait edition of 1850 and my 1840 edition of unknown origin. My test case for this ...
Aesop's Fables with Upwards of One Hundred and Fifty Emblematical Devices
(John Locken, 1849)
This very little book (3¼ x 4½) reproduces almost exactly my 1839 and 1841 editions from Thomas, Cowperthwait & Company, also in Philadelphia. It thus has 228 pages. This book has even smaller margins than those, and so ...
A nice source. Do not miss the index of illustrations at the back. The text seems to be exactly the same as Hausrath and Perry.
Tales from Aesop
(Random House, 1976)
Pleasing if not inspired pictures of TH, GGE, DS, BW, OF, MSA, and CP. A soft picture book whose inside cover asks the adult to read it to its owner. Now (1986) with an accompanying tape, also from Random House. The boy ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean]
I like this book, principally for its vivid color reproductions. Four stories: TMCM, GA (maybe the best art), The Bat and the Birds and the Animals (a Korean favorite), and LM (the poorest art). The back cover reverses 15.
