    • Aesop's Fables Together with the Life of Aesop. 

      Aesop; Bachet, Claude-Gaspard (Rand McNally,. Chicago/NY, 1897)
      The plates in this edition seem to be identical with those in the 1897 edition of the same title from the same publisher. There are, however, some differences. The title page is configured differently, there is no date ...
    • Aesop's Fables Together with the Life of Aesop. 

      Bachet, Claude-Gaspard (Rand McNally. Chicago/NY, 1897)
      This was one of the first books in my collection. I have come back to look at it again after reviewing a number of Dodsley editions, including the first in 1761 and Crukshank's in 1798. See my comments on those two books. ...

      Aesop; Bachet, Claude-Gaspard; Dodsley, Robert (Printed for T. and J. Whitehouse. Dublin, 1763)
      See my comments on the Birmingham first edition by Baskerville in 1761. June had collected this book because, I believe, of her particular interest in books in Ireland. A first difference that strikes the eye here is ...
    • Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists. In Three Books 

      Aesop; Bachet, Claude-Gaspard; Dodsley, Robert; Dodsley, James (Printed by John Baskerville for R. and J. Dodsley,. Birmingham [Eng.], 1761)
      Here is Bodemann #145.1, with the description fulfilled in every detail. I have been so delighted to find a Dodsley first edition. I had worked with Dodsley at length at the Pierpont Morgan during my sabbatical. The ...
