Aisopos: Sieben Berichte aus Hellas: Der Aisopos-Roman neu übersetzt und nach den Quellen ergänzt
This seems an important work on a fascinating subject. The Columbia Dictionary of Modern European Literature says of it: The novel 'Aisopos,' his masterpiece, presents a life struggling for freedom and justice. I gather ...
(London: J.M. Dent/NY: E.P. Dutton, 1913)
I am delighted at last to get an early Everyman edition. Compare this edition with that of 1913/42. There are surprising little changes, though the body of the introduction, the fables presented, and their pagination ...
The Tortoise and the Hare
Identical with the adjacent entry except for the change in publisher. That change is also responsible for taking away the Reading Rainbow designation. Otherwise the book seems exactly the same as the Holiday House ...
(Rand McNally & Company, 1956)
This large-format book reproduces exactly the first version of the undersized 1952 book by the same people with the same title. The only change I can find lies in the endpapers/frontispiece. See my comments there.
The Aesop for Children
(Barnes & Noble Books, 1919)
This is an attractive green-covered book. Its pages are slightly reduced in size from those of the classic Rand McNally editions but larger than those in the Clauss black-and-white reprint of 1984. The color reproduction ...
The Aesop for Children
(Checkerboard Press, 1919)
Here is yet another edition done from the old classic. This edition presents twenty-seven fables with the smallest text-and-picture area of all the Winter editions I have. There is no T of C. The book does not acknowledge, ...
The Lion and the Mouse
(Random House, 1998)
Here is a later printing, and indeed a later version, of a book already in the collection, though I can find no acknowledgement that this later printing came at a later date. The format of both covers has changed, inside ...
(London: William Heinemann/NY: Doubleday, Page, and Co., 1912)
T of C and list of illustrations. Both the colored and black-and-white illustrations are very well done. The colored illustrations come alive in this early edition, e.g., The Crab and His Mother, The Blackamoor, 2P, Venus ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952)
A colored reprint of the 1952 edition with a different cover. Another reprint in 1974 has the same cover as this book but does the illustrations only in black-and-white. The three together say something in the history ...
Fables of Aesop, and Others(?)
This little volume is lacking a number of things, including its title-page, Fables II-VI, and the last 1½ fables. If it followed the tradition of similar Croxall editions, also lacking are a frontispiece, a preface, and ...
