I offer two examples of Lessie's verse, The first, from the fox to the crow on 14, is, I think, less good :.

The second, much stronger, is the finish to "Crab and His Mother" on As the tortoise passes him, the hare sleeps next to a tree, which is well placed in the center between 22 and 23 so that it spreads out from the book's crack. See my comments on the paperback version published in the same year by the same publisher. The dj on this hardbound version is slightly torn. This collection includes fables from Aesop, Phaedrus, La Fontaine, Samaniego, and Hartzenbusch in a full-sized unpaginated pamphlet of 32 pages. There is one fable per page, with a text and colored illustration well integrated with each other.
The "animadas" seems to indicate that the fables are lively. One of Hartzenbusch's fables here is "Aesop and the Ass," which he got from Lessing. Hartzenbusch has another strong fable on the next page. Two snails want to have a running race, and the frog tells them that they had better see if they can walk before they concern themselves with running. The colored illustrations are simple but telling. The boy pointing to the fox hidden in his home is well done here. Also good is the fox stretching itself out to try to replicate the snake--and about to burst because of its silly effort.
The large-format colored pamphlet replicates another in the collection with a small change or two. The cover shows Selector as the publisher, rather than UA Libsa. As I wrote there, this collection includes fables from Aesop, Phaedrus, La Fontaine, Samaniego, and Hartzenbusch in a full-sized unpaginated pamphlet of 32 pages.

Illustrated by Nicholas Wilton. First Voyager Books Edition. A pride of peacocks and a flock of swans begin to note differences between the two groups and also to suspect each other.
They prepare weapons. A false alarm sets off a doomsday event in which every bird is killed. But soon two eggs hatch forth a peacock and a swan. The illustrations are very well done. My favorites for their multi-level textures are the two illustrating one of the most important page-pairs: "And so it came to pass that the peacocks gathered a great quantity of feathers which they sharpened into arrows and concealed in the shadows of their gardens.
Compiled by Denise Godwin; many stories narrated and translated into English by S. Illustrated by Gert le Grange. First edition, first impression. One of the eleven stories here is a fable: "Mr Fieldmouse is too proud" The "Mr" here is the father of the bride.

There is a whole paragraph of moral for this story. If one has something, he should keep it and use it properly. One should be satisfied with his position.
Those who exalt themselves shall be humbled. This story was narrated and translated into English by S. Illustration by Juro Grau. Reinbek: Rowohlt. Edited by Rochelle Larkin. Lorna Tomei. Rochelle Larkin is still acknowledged as editor, but Lorna Tomei, acknowledged there as illustrator, is not mentioned here. The cover illustration, still of TH, has changed to one signed by a "Virginia Lucia. This seems to me to be an ultimate "formula book. The formula is repeated times! The first story inverts the two pages.
The art, produced in a quantity unusual in contemporary books, seems to me inferior.
The grasshopper saw many grasshopper wings strewn about the entrance to a fox's hole The ubiquity of morals gives an unusual contemporary chance to test them. I find the following very good: 6, 20, 22, 28, 32, , , , and The following seem curious: 14, 46, 96, , and Adapted by Mary Boudart. Illustrated by Tammie Lyon. The woodcutter here is perhaps a beaver, but he still uses an axe. A water sprite makes the usual triple retrieval.
After selling the two precious axes, the woodcutter can give his wife and two children all the things they have dreamed of. There is no second phase in this telling; that is, no envious comrade tries to outwit the water sprite. A page at the end stops to reflect on honesty in the light of the story. Gordon Hansen.

Bloomington, IN: Xlibris Corporation. The back cover says of these fifteen stories: "Each fable has a source and a destination, to fly a successful course in life--whether it be from defeat to triumph, from despair to hope, or from here to Ever-after. I read the first three stories. It is subtitled "Flying from condemnation to exoneration.
It is a golf story in which the author takes the place in a foursome of a discredited deceased person.

Here is a helpful book. I look forward to working with it to find those fable stamps of which I am not yet aware. In several chapters, this book lists countries alphabetically and then the stamps done in each country that bear on the subject of the chapter. The four colored pages illustrating various stamps and inserted between 64 and 65 offer a special treat. Cartier stops along the way to tell a number of the stories associated with stamps, including several fables, like OF 19 , "The Stag and the Lion" 24 , and "The Swallow and the Serpent" Toulouse: Milan. Here is a fascinating find.
I thought that I had found a French original of an English translation. In fact, what I have found here is the original French edition of a book which I already have in its French re-edition. I will recall below my remarks on that edition, but let me first note the elements that are different here in the earlier edition. The cover now presents the wolf against a white background rather than in an all-dark close-up of his face.
The publisher is "Milan" rather than "Milan Jeunesse. The back cover and the ISBN are the same.

As I wrote back then, this is a large-format children's book with lively colored illustrations. Here are twenty-seven of La Fontaine's fables in their original form, accompanied by dramatic painted illustrations. The animal paintings here are strong on emotion, beginning with the scowling lion next to the "Sommaire" T of C on 6.
The illustrations are generally two-page spreads. Some fables are spread out onto two pages, but the two illustrations are distinct, as in GGE on 18 and 19 or FC on 20 and Despite good efforts, I cannot find the fly -- if he exists -- in the illustration for "Le Coche et la Mouche" on Did the illustrator want me to look so long, only to be unable to find the minuscule flea?
The sons' faces are impressive, I believe, in "Le Laboureur et ses Enfants" on The wolf and the lamb are wonderfully contrasted in size and attitude on The sweep of the scene in "Le Petit Poisson et le Pecheur" is grandiose The chagrined fox leaving the stork's home on 53 is a classic, as is the happy shoemaker on 55, especially in contrast with the pale banker in the background. The good "scowling lion" illustration is repeated on 60 for "Les Animaux malades de la peste.
