    • Fábulas de Esopo Reproducción en facsímile de la primera edición de 1489 

      Aesop; Avianus; Bracciolini, Poggio,; Cotarelo y Mori, Emilio; Petrus Alfonsi,; Planudes, Maximus,; Rinuccio (Real Academia EspanolaTipografia de archivos. Madrid, 1489)
      Palau calls this tall paperbound folio a magnífica reproducción facsímile (81959). The editors seem not to know of the Toulouse edition of 1488; see my Esopete Ystoriado (Toulouse 1488), published in 1990. Nor do they ...
    • Aesop's Fables: Samuel Croxall's Tran 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; Johnson, John (printer); Rogers, Bruce (book designer); Scholderer, Victor, (Limited Editions ClubOxford University Press. Oxford[New York], 1518)
      I went after a second copy of this book because it was being offered so economically on eBay. I think it eluded the notice of other serious seekers. This copy includes from August, 1933, The Monthly Letter of the Limited ...
    • Aesop's Fables: Samuel Croxall's Tran 

      Samuel Croxall's Translation with a Bibliographical Note by Victor Scholderer (Oxford University Press. Oxford, 1518)
      I went after a third copy of this book because it was being offered so economically on eBay. I think it eluded the notice of other serious seekers. Like the first copy I found, this is numbered and signed by Bruce Rogers. ...
    • Aesop's Fables: Samuel Croxall's Translation with a Bibliographical Note by Victor Scholderer 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; Johnson, John (printer); Rogers, Bruce (book designer); Scholderer, Victor, (Limited Editions ClubOxford University Press. Oxford[New York], 1518)
      One of the nicest books I have. A triumph of the bookmaking art. The 46 facsimiles are beautifully reproduced. Very close to del Tuppo (eg #37 and #192), they often show two or three phases in one scene. #83, #162, ...
    • Emblematum Libellus 

      Alciati, Andrea (Christian Wechel/Wissenschaftliche BuchgesellschaftWissenschaftliche Buchgeselschaft. Darmstadt, (Ger.)Paris/Darmstadt, 1542)
      This is my first chance to look more carefully into Alciato. This volume itself is one of many good books I found at Wirthwein. I had not known that the Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft had done a reprint of Alciato's ...
    • Historia Vitae Fortunaeque Aesopi, cum Fabulis Illius 

      Aesop; Camerarius, Joachim (Ex Officina Recente Valentini Papae. LeipzigLipsiae, 1544)
      First, this little book has caused me as much anguish as any I have tried to win for the collection. For over three years I have been looking for it, thinking it lost. I presumed as a last hope that the book had got in ...
    • Fabeln von Erasmus Alberus 

      No Author (Greif Buecherei. Berlin, 1550)
      Here is an extra copy of this book. Good strong rhymes in Gothic script. The Nachwort is real Third Reich stuff, speaking of eine Rückkehr zu den Urkraftquellen deutschen Volkstums. The stories are all Aesopic. ...

      Alber, Erasmus; Matthiessen, Wilhelm (Greif BuechereiGreif-Bücherei. Berlin, 1550)
      Good strong rhymes in Gothic script. The Nachwort is real Third Reich stuff, speaking of eine Rückkehr zu den Urkraftquellen deutschen Volkstums. The stories are all Aesopic. There are wonderful woodcuts (which ...
    • Aesopi Phrygis Fabulae Elegantissimis iconibus veras animalium species ad viuum adumbrantibus 

      Aesop; Babrius; Knopff, Adam; Pigres; Planudes, Maximus; Prodromus, Theodore (Apud Ioan. Tornaesiumapud Ioannem Tornaesium. LvgdvniLyon, 1551)
      This little book is an earlier edition of what had long been the oldest book in the collection, listed under 1619? This book is Bodemann #29. What a great thing! Bodemann's twenty-ninth oldest book! See my description ...
    • Aesopi Phrygis Fabulae Elegantissimis iconibus veras animalium species ad viuum adumbrantibus 

      No Author (apud Ioannem Tornaesium. Lyon, 1570)
      Here is a precious addition to the collection, both for its antiquity and its excellent condition. The one shortcoming of its condition is that the title-page seems to be a xerox copy. As Bodemann #29.2, it fits into ...
    • The Moral Fables of Robert Henryson 

      Henryson, Robert; Irving, David (The Maitland Club. Edinburgh, 1570)
      A lovely old book, the cover of which is in bad shape. This is not a facsimile but a reprint, and so the print is much more legible than in the Da Capo edition. The morals are printed in contemporary script. T of C near ...
    • Aesop: The Morall Fabillis of Esope the Phrygian 

      Henryson, Robert (Da Capo Press: Plenum Pulbishing. NY, 1570)
      This is a facsimile of the 13 fables in this very early collection. Seven-line stanzas, medium print quality, difficult vocabulary and orthography.
    • Aesopi Phrygis Fabulae elegantissimis Eiconibus Veras Animalium Species ad vivum adumbrantes 

      No Author (Apud Joannem Tornaesium. Lyon, 1570)
      Here is one of the treasures of this collection. The title-page seems to be a photocopy, hopefully from the same edition.
    • The Moral Fables of Aesop by Robert Henryson 

      Gopen, George D; Henryson, Robert (Scottish Academic PressUniv. of Notre Dame Press. Notre Dame[Edinburgh], 1571)
      A first-rate piece of scholarship that puts Henryson within our reach. Very readable versions of the 13 fables. Henryson's morals are strongly allegorical and (like the fables) lengthy, but the stories are well done, ...

    • Mythologia Ethica 

      Freitag, Arnold (Philippe Galle, Christophorus Plantinus/George Ladias Limited. Antwerp/Athens, 1579)
      This may be the first true emblem book in this collection, and it is high time. This is a fine example. Bodemann (51.1) may be slightly incorrect when it gives the sequence for each of these 125 fables. On the left page ...
    • Esopo No Fabulas 

      No Author (Benseisha Co.. Tokyo, 1593)
      Fr. Francis Mathy was good enough to order this for me after we found out in our conversation with Satoru Obara, S.J., that this facsimile was still in print. Obara reports on this booklet in his little monograph, Companions ...
    • The Etymologist of Aesops Fables 

      Sturtevant, Simon (Reprinted by Walter J. Johnson, Inc. Amsterdam: Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, Ltd.. AmsterdamNorwood, N.J., 1602)
      Sixty-nine pages of phrase-by-phrase and then word-by-word construing of some fifty or so Latin fables of Aesop. Then, after the straight verse texts of the 31 fables of Book 1 of Phaedrus, they are treated the same way. ...
