Aesop's Illustrated Fables (Barnes & Noble Collectible Classics: Omnibus Edition) Leather / fine binding edition by Aesop
As legend has it, the storyteller Aesop was a slave who lived in ancient Greece during the sixth century B.C. His memorable, recountable fables have brought amusing characters to life and driven home thought-provoking morals for generations of listeners and modern-day readers. Translated into countless languages and familiar to people around the world, Aesop's fables never tarnish despite being told again and again. Full of humor, insight, and wit, the tales in Aesop's Fables champion the value of hard work and perseverance, compassion for others, and honesty. They are age-old wisdom in a delicious form, for the consumption of adults and children alike.
Collecting "Five Weeks in a Balloon", "Around the World in Eighty Days", "A Journey to the Center of the Earth", "From the Earth to the Moon", "Round the Moon", "Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" and "The Mysterious Island", this title offers a compilation of seven of Jules Verne's Voyages.
This collection features more than twenty stories, in the classic translation of Sir Richard Burton, published between 1884 and 1886, and full-colour illustrations by Renata Fucikova and Jindra Capek. Among them are some of the best-known legends of eastern storytelling, including the "Sinbad the Sailor" and "Aladdin and His Magic Lamp" .
In the 1920s and '30s, H P Lovecraft pioneered a new type of fiction that fused elements of supernatural horror with the concepts of visionary science fiction. Lovecraft's tales of cosmic horror revolutionised modern horror fiction. This title collects Lovecraft's fictions.
Hans Christian Andersen is one of the world's most popular storytellers, and his fairy tales are among the best-loved works of literature.

This edition features ten rarely seen "Children's Legends" and the full-colour artwork of Arthur Rackham.
