    • Aesop's Fables 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (Homewood Publishing Company. Chicago, 1930)
      A curious melange. The text appears to be identical with that in Cassell's Aesop's Fables (1893/1893?) illustrated by Griset and in Hurst's The Book of Fables (1899?), also illustrated by Griset. The author, unacknowledged ...
    • Aesop's Fables 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (McLoughlin Brothers. NY, 1901)
      This edition stands out from others by Griset from McLoughlin in that it gives its own date (on a rock in the cover illustration). It has the lovely colored TMCM frontispiece one can find in both 1900? editions from ...
    • Aesop's Fables 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (W.B. Conkey. Chicago, 1930)
      This book is absolutely identical with the Homewood edition (1930?) of the same title except for the presence here of a frontispiece colored from Billinghurst's The Fox and the Goat. That same colored illustration ...
    • Aesop's Fables 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (McLoughlin Brothers. NY, 1898)
      A very nice run of Griset and Croxall. The plates are identical with those in my Aesop's Fables (1893?) by Cassell. This book, I would guess, is the inexpensive reprint of that. Only the paper (cheaper here), the title ...
    • Aesop's Fables, Including Fables by Gay, La Fontaine, and Others 

      Aesop; Dodsley, Robert; Florian,; Gay, John,; Gellert, Christian Fürchtegott,; Krylov, Ivan Andreevich,; La Fontaine, Jean de,; Lessing, Gotthold Ephraim, (Ward Lock and Company Limited. London, Melbourne and Cape Town, 1962)
      This book seems to reproduce exactly The Book of Fables, published by Frederick Warne in New York in 1962; my copy is dated 1963. This volume from Ward Lock changes the title from The Book of Fables to Aesop's Fables, ...
    • The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (F.M. Lupton Publishing Company. NYNew York, 1900)
      This edition seems a standard Lupton edition, with its Later Fables beginning on 157. Compare it with my Lupton copies under 1901? and 1902?. The big surprise in this copy comes when one pages through and finds no ...
    • 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, (Hurst & Co.. NY, 1890)
      This book is like two others that I have. Its contents are very much like those in the Arlington Edition put out by Hurst and listed under 1899? There is no indication of an Arlington Edition here. It is exactly like a ...
    • 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. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (F. M. Lupton Publishing Company. NYNew York, 1901)
      Identical plates with the edition by the same publisher that I have listed under 1902?. This edition has a different cover and different paper; it also lists an address for the Lupton Publishing Company. This book ...
    • The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (F.M. Lupton Publishing Company. NYNew York, 1902)
      Quite similar to the Arlington Edition (1899?), except for rearrangement and different spellings in titles. A note added to the editor's preface indicates the addition of 130 fables not in the first and second editions. ...
    • The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (Mershon. New YorkRahway/NY, 1920)
      Closest to the 1901? and 1902? Lupton editions with the same title. See my comments there. Except for the title page and cover, the books seem identical. Like those, this book has no illustrations. In fact, this book ...
    • The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (Hurst & Company Publishers. NYNew York, 1900)
      Like the adjacent listing from Lupton, this unusual book claims to have art but has none at all! It is paginated and has in fact the same plates as my Hurst Arlington editions listed under 1899? but lacks all the illustrations ...
    • The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (F.M. Lupton. NY, 1903)
      Very close to my 1902? Lupton edition, right down to the good paper, the good printing, and the numerous empty pages at the end. As is usual for these Lupton editions (see 1900?, 1901?, and 1902?), a note added to the ...
    • The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel,; Griset, Ernest Henry; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (American Book Exchange. NY, 1880)
      The plates are identical with those in the Arlington Edition by Hurst which I have listed under 1899?, but the pages are thinner and the reproduction of Griset's work is excellent. The Finis page here occurs by mistake ...
    • The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel,; Griset, Ernest Henry; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (Hurst & Co. Publishers,. NYNew York, 1899)
      After 140 pages of Aesop, there are Later Fables in the last 100 pages of the book. Compare the two copies to see how much more clearly Griset's work emerges in the blue-covered volume. Good AI. The Stutzman copy ...
    • 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. ...
    • El Libro de las Fábulas: Recopilación de las más famosas fábulas de Samaniego, La Fontaine, Iriarte, Hartzembusch, etc. 

      Baeza Flores, Alberto,; Eimeric, Clovis; Florian,; Hartzenbusch, Juan Eugenio; Iriarte, Tomás de,; La Fontaine, Jean de,; Samaniego, Félix María (Editorial Juventud. Barcelona, 1930)
      Here is the 1958 third edition of a book I had already in its second edition from 1943. The monochrome illustrations here are not orange, as there, but rather black. There are thirty-three fables here from several ...
    • Fables de La Fontaine, précédées de la vie d'Ésope 

      Didot, Pierre; La Fontaine, Jean de; La Fontaine, Jean de; La Fontaine, Jean de, (Lebigre Frères, Libraires. Paris, 1839)
      Nouvelle Édition, collationnée sur la belle Édition de M.P. Didot l'Ainé. I have smaller illustrated Lebigre editions from 1835 and 1836. Here is an unillustrated edition in standard format. Since it is unillustrated, ...
    • The Fables of Aesop. 

      Aesop; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger; La Fontaine, Jean de, (A.L. Burt. NY, 1900)
      A wonderfully curious gift. As Tom points out, the book starts with a nice cover design modelled on Heighway's The Fisher and the Little Fish (116) with the addition of a background including modern ships. Adding ...
