Carlson, S.J., Rev. Gregory I.  
Aesop: A Fable Collection
Publisher: Gregory I. Carlson, 1994 Omaha, NE.
Book. Book condition: Good. Spiral-bound Softcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall INSCRIBED on title page: "To Heather / with affection / Gregory Carlson, S.J. / February 14, 1995." This is a bibliography of Aesop titles (and other items) based on Carlson's extensive personal collection. "I have always enjoyed old books and the places that sell them. In my hauntings of used book stores somewhere in my years at the College of the Holy Cross (1974-79), I noticed that Aesop was one of the classic authors who showed up most frequently. Besides, the attention that he received often engaged both delight and creativity. I began to keep my eye open for inexpensive versions of Aesop, whether new or old. I had a focus when I went into any book shop.. What I enjoy particularly in Aesop has to do with variety: the wide array of illustrations for any one fable, the surprising liberty people take in retelling fables, the disparate and contrary morals people draw from the same fable. Several of the first fable books that come into my hands demonstrated this variety and approached Aesop with unabashed delight. The Metropolitan Museum's Aesop: Five Centuries of Illustrated Fables and the works of Alexander Calder and David Levine are still some of my favorite books.. A friend's suggestion some years ago that I keep a record of where I had found each book led to this bibliography. As I began, I wrote the comments with an eye to material helpful for an illustrated lecture. A personal computer made that kind of record keeping easier and more fun. Before the bibliography begins, I list the objects I have found that relate to Aesop. Again, I believe, one must be struck by the quantity and variety of art which the stories associated with one man have provoked. It is a testimony to Aesop that the list spans all sorts of art, from reproductions of masterpieces to one-of-a-kind pieces by students and craftspersons. It has been almost three years since the last edition of this bibliography appeared. This time has been exceptionally fruitful! In sheer numbers, the book collection has grown by 800 to a total of 1, 907.The average cost of the books is $11.39.." 434 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition; soiling to rear cover and edges of the last several pages; otherwise very good condition. Spiral-bound softcover.
