A delightful book! The special feature of this book is that it contains a music box: "Gira la manivela y escucha" is written around the semi-circle cut out of the opening side of the book, and inside this cut out portion is a crank to turn the music box.
Eleven fables are narrated on thick pages, two pages to a fable. Strangely, LM is pictured on the front of this book but does not appear in the inside!

Something went wrong perhaps between artist and edidtor.. The tune played by the music box is "Mary Had a Little Lamb. Schiller Ltd: Catalogue Schiller, Ltd. Justin Schiller's catalogues have always been both stimulating and informative for me.
This catalogue, though smaller, does the same. Four fable items are featured among the fifty-five objects here. We have seldom been able to deal at Schiller's price levels! This is a lovely hand-colored printing of I have enjoyed this work by Godwin Edward Baldwin but our copies are later and not hand-colored. The range of things Schiller can offer is breathtaking!

Contrary to the subtitle found only on the cover, these are not fables but rather eight-to-ten-line mythological entries by character, starting with Pandora, Prometheus, and Phaethon. They may be a good way to help some students get into Latin. There are fifty pages, paginated with Latin numerals. Krilov: Basni. Illustrations by Dom Mescerjakova. Moscow: Detscar Klassika: Detscar. Leontiev , Moscow, through eBay, August, ' It shows the recent improvement in quality of Russian publications. Its front cover offers a slick illustration of a rat and a mouse looking upwards in pleasant green and orange colors.
Inside one finds a two-page spread for each of thirteen fables with simple illustrations in green and black.
New to me and delightful is "Mouse and Rat": the rat, because she fears the cat so thoroughly, figures that the cat will defeat the lion. Perhaps best of the illustrations is "Crane, Lobster, and Pike"; it places the three well apart from each other on the two-page spread and thus underscores the point of the fable. The lobster has eight lines to eight different legs. Ellen C. Illustrations by Sudeep Mukherjee. This book may mix stories from Babbitt's and editions, titled respectively "Jataka Tales" and "More Jataka Tales. Simpler drawings here have been substituted for Young's work.
There are twenty-one stories here. The covers present a human child walking in front of a baboon. Illustrations de Philippe Salembier. This is the latest in a long line of pretty illustrated French editions of fables for children. Contemporary technology and artistic ability combine for pictures that are colorful and exact. It all starts with a cover that offers a beautiful rendition of FS painted onto its soft cushion. Forty fables receive one-to-three fine illustrations each.
Some are more childlike in their approach, like TH , which offers humanly clad figures. One of my favorites is "The Stag and the Pool" ; this illustration spreads beautifully across two pages. In "The Lion Become Old" , the ass is climbing onto the lion's body to deliver his insulting blow. AD has a whimsical illustration in which the ant is riding like a horseback rider on the dove In a curious surprise, the book's illustration of FS 55 dresses the animals who had no human dress in the same scene on the book's cover!
Does the illustration on 71 belong to the preceding fable, "The Lion and the Mosquito," or to the present fable, "The Spider and the Swallow"? Another favorite of mine shows the weasel and rabbit pleading all sorts of logic before the bespectacled cat Little do they realize that they are both about to get eaten! Let me mention two last favorites. A two-page spread suggests the maliciousness of the frog in FM as he is about to plunge the rat into the water ; the final page shows the scene from above as the hawk carries both away.
My impression is that Salembier has borrowed heavily from French illustration history and used other people's framing of scenes as she has created her own realization within that framing. Translated by Elizur Wright. Miyun: Tsinghua University Press. Here is a two-volume presentation in English of Elizur Wright's translation of the full collection of La Fontaine's fables.
As is frequent in present-day Chinese paperbacks, text-page foredges are decorated with an identical repeating pattern and the covers are heavy paper folded back to create a flap. Be careful: the T of C at the beginning of either volume is identical. A buyer like me can easily think that there are two copies of Volume I rather than one copy each of both volumes.
As page 1 makes clear, this is Part I, and Book I starts on 3. This is a substantial production. There is a table of some sort on the book's last five pages, following There is a table of some sort on the book's last seven pages, following Efter HC Andersen. Bilder av Anna Friberger. Stockholm: Klassiska sagor No. This is for me a favorite version of Andersen's great story because it is so frank about the Emperor's nudity. The cover's image is the same as that on the title-page, and both are explicit about showing him naked except for shoes and crown.

I wonder if one could publish this book in the USA. The artist has fun with this story start to finish. Consider the first double image. While the emphasis is on the Emperor, there is so much going on. A rat looks on from above while another is running across the top of the wall. A pig is eating a piece of carrot. A child has a hand in a pail. A dog chases a rooster. People are doing things everywhere, except perhaps for the sleepy guards. This Emperor has a very sloppy room, littered with clothes and food and leftovers from food.
