    • The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger,; La Fontaine, Jean de (F.M. Lupton Publishing Company. NY, 1905)
      I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to ...
    • The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; Griset, Ernest Henry; L'Estrange, Roger,; La Fontaine, Jean de, (John B. Alden. NY, 1885)
      This book's closest relative is the edition by the same name in 1880 from the American Book Exchange. See my comments there. Its other close relative is the Arlington Edition by Hurst which I have listed under 1899?. ...
    • The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. Complete, with text based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. With Copious Additions from other Modern Authors 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; Griset, Ernest Henry; L'Estrange, Roger,; La Fontaine, Jean de, (National Library Association. Chicago, 1883)
      This book is bibliographically almost a perfect match for one I have listed under 1883, published by John B. Alden in New York. Let me list their differences. This book has the same size page, but is almost twice as ...
    • The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. Complete, with text based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. With Copious Additions from other Modern Authors 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; Griset, Ernest Henry; L'Estrange, Roger,; La Fontaine, Jean de, (John B. Alden. NYNew York, 1883)
      Again, I thought I was picking up a good second copy of a book where my first copy may have been in only fair condition. And this book is very close to one that I have listed under the same title and publisher in 1885. ...
    • The Fables of Aesop 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger,; Townsend, George Fyler,; Valentine, L (Frederick Warne and Co.. London, 1867)
      This book is internally identical in its plates with that which I have listed by the same publisher under 1866? Its few differences are these four: (1) It has a green and gold cover, (2) adds to the title-page New Edition ...
    • The Fables of Aesop 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger,; Townsend, George Fyler,; Valentine, L (Frederick Warne and Co.. London, 1866)
      One of two very curious books sent together; compare it with The Fables of Aesop from Warne in 1866. This edition adds fifty fables but no illustrations to the 110 fables there; it also mentions l'Estrange with Croxall ...
    • The Fables of Aesop 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger,; Townsend, George Fyler (Frederick Warne and Co.. London, 1866)
      One of two very curious books sent together; compare it with The Fables of Aesop from Warne for whose printing date I have guessed the same year. That edition adds fifty fables but no illustrations to the 110 fables here; ...
    • The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger,; La Fontaine, Jean de,; Rundell, J. B (A.L. Burt Company. NYNew York, 1920)
      Already one of my favorite books because of the hand-colored illustrations. Also it takes the JBR text used with so many other illustrators. A lovely book! See the adjacent Burt edition of same year and title for ...
    • The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger,; La Fontaine, Jean de,; Rundell, J. B. (ed) (A.L. Burt Company. NYNew York, 1920)
      This book is identical with one already in the collection, purchased from Brattle Books, but I give this copy a separate listing because that other copy includes hand-colored illustrations. This book is just as it came ...
