Description:
Auckland, 1982 *** ONLY EDITION THUS; COMPRISING SIX FABLES IN SAMOAN PROSE. This edition appeared simultaneously with an edition of the same fables translated into Niuean (another Polynesian language) by Aiao Kaulima (b. 1935) and similarly illustrated by McNee. Aesop's animals, of course, were unknown in Samoa before the eighteenth century; and so many of their names here are transparently European, eg, 'asini 'donkey', rane 'frog', manuki 'monkey', mole 'mole', pusi 'cat', luko 'wolf'. -- Out of print, and already VERY SCARCE. -- Cover title: Tala mai nu'u mamao = Stories from faraway places. -- Reference: OCLC 23008181.. Pictorial wrappers, wire-stitc. 3 volumes (209 x 147 mm): Pp 1-16, 1-16, 1-16. .

Peterhead (Aberdeenshire): Aulton Press, 1987 *** ONLY EDITION IN MODERN SCOTS; COMPRISING TWENTY-SIX FABLES IN NORTHEAST-DIALECT VERSE, with a preface by Billy Kay and a Scots-English glossary. Wheaton's illustrations are quite delightful: Several of them show frogs in kilts or playing the bagpipes, a tortoise in a tam-o'-shanter, &c; another incorporates the aurora borealis. The poet Robert Strachan Stephen (b. 1949) afterwards published By the shores o' Galilee: Stories from the Gospels in Scots verse (1989); In the beginning: Stories from the Old Testament in Scots verse (1991), and Troll tales (1999). The Aulton Press is apparently his private imprint; and this is its first book. *** Out of print, and already quite SCARCE.
