Two Fables of Aesop With Designs on Wood
(Vagabond Press of Lloyd Whydotski, 1818)
Nice cuts of The Lion, the Tiger, and the Wolf and The Envious Man and the Covetous. A curious little book. Notice the spelling of the city in Wisconsin!
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Golden Press, 1950)
The delightful story of Prudence and Flash. Much is added: the names, a provocation, character descriptions, fans on both sides, a description of the night before, the goal, and some activities along the way. Apparently ...
The Aesop's Fables
(Xianggang qi ming shu ju, 1930)
This is a rare, ephemeral find! This 5 x 7 1/4 soft-cover paperbound book has some 290 pages. Each of 299 fables is printed in English on the left side and in Chinese characters on the right side. I cannot identify the ...
(The Heritage Press, 1941)
This lovely book often brings high prices. Most of the illustrations are brown on white. Some add a golden background. A few show good wit. I would like to include one or two in a slide lecture. Having just worked ...
(The Heritage Reprints, 1941)

Little Folk's Fables from Aesop
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1940)
At last, I have a good, clean copy of this curious little book, which spells its title three different ways: I use here the correct version on the cover rather than the interior title's Folks' or the title page's Folks. ...
Fables from Aesop
AI at the back. The alternating (water-?) colored and black-and-white illustrations are not bad. Maybe the best thing about this kids' book is the morals--e.g., for the man who loses his wig: When others laugh at us, ...
Fables from Aesop
(Oxford University Press, 1966)
Excellent reproductions of Grandville. Index on 207. Rees is liberal in his translations--and often delightful. Do not miss the good (Aesopic?) text of the man in the shower on 181.
Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange.
(Dover Publications, 1967)
Lovely stuff. The drawings really are excellent. I saw the first edition of this book from Harrison in Paris for sale in Atlanta at too high a price but have since found it. I have eight different versions of this Dover ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop/Nonsense Alphabets.
(Grolier Society, 1967)
This book is identical (in larger format with enlarged and relatively good illustrations) with the Avenel edition (1967?) of the same name, except that it also contains Edward Lear's Nonsense Alphabets upside down and going ...
