The Town Mouse & the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable
(Michael Neugebauer Pub. Ltd.Michael Neugebauer Publishing, 2011)
I know and love Imai's work from her 2012 German 12 Fabeln von Aesop, done also in English in 2013. This book of just one fable does not disappoint. Its simplicity echoes the good of the Country Mouse's life. Country ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(Saalfield Publishing Company, 1905)
This book represents the third publisher to use Godolphin's texts; see 1885 and 1895. This book uses many good illustrations done after Weir and four (59, 81, 85, and 88) after Griset. There is no frontispiece or title-page ...
Aesop: Tales of Aethiop the African, Volume I.

(Margaret Hamilton, 1990)
A very strong contribution to the recent history of illustration of Aesopic fables. As the publisher's note on the back of the title page points out, the book is an artistic tour de force of techniques, styles, and ...

(Stereotyped printed, and sold by H. & E. Phinney,, 1836)
This is my second copy of this tender little (3½x5¼) pamphlet of 30 pages. This copy from Harold Burstein is in better condition than my first copy, which was found seven years ago. Still, both are in such fair to poor ...
