Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...
Fables in Verse
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)
"Twenty-six years ago I bought a first copy of this book at Renaissance in Milwaukee. Here is a second copy in poorer condition. It has the same printer's error listed below. I keep it in the collection because it is a ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(J. Vermot, Libraire-Éditeur, 1860)
This beautiful book is surprisingly not in Bodemann. Vermot is not listed there. Hadamar(d) is for two works: a second edition of Lachambeaudie's fables in 1855 and the 1867 LeFevre edition of La Fontaine in collaboration ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1890)
A surprising find. Mother and I went to a craft show on the fair grounds. I finished early and invaded the antique fair next door. I have looked through thousands of books shown by antique dealers. I rarely find ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Pierre Didot l'Ainé et de Firmin Didot, 1817)
Here is a curious find. It combines a first half of La Fontaine's fables first published in An VII but now labelled 1817 with a second half still labelled An VII. Not only do I have copies of both halves, but I have just ...
Das zweite Milwaukeer Lesebuch : nebst praktischen Sprach- und Uebersetzungs-uebungen
(Georg Brumder, 1880)
Here is an unlikely find. This is a revised edition of a reader for students in the third through fifth years of school in Milwaukee. In the introduction, the editors tell us that they did the work on this book for free! ...
Oeuvres de J. La Fontaine: Fables: Tome II
(Chez Castel de Courval, 1825)
This small pair of volumes (3¼ x 4½) may come from a larger set including other works. As far as I can establish, there are four illustrations per volume. The illustrations are full-page and well done: the frontispiece ...
Hoch-Deutsches Reformirtes ABC und Namen-Büchlein
(Schaefer and KoradiSchäfer und Koradi, 1832)
A lovely little book of letters and words and commandments. Among the Lese-Uebungen at the back are four fables: MM; The Farmer and His Lawyer-Neighbor; TB; and The Apple-Thief Up a Tree. The second has a nice turn: ...
Les Fabulistes Latins, Tome 4
(Burt Franklin, 1893)
This fourth volume is given to Odo and his imitators. There is a helpful alphabetical list of the surprisingly large number of stories in this volume on 451-63, just before the T of C.
Les Fabulistes Latins, Tome 3
(Burt Franklin, 1893)
This volume on Avianus divides roughly into halves. The first is an introduction to the man and to manuscripts and editions for both him and his imitators. The second half, beginning on 261, presents the fables themselves, ...
