(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1892)
This book seems to be the predecessor of Donohue and Henneberry's Aesop's Fables of 1896. This edition stops at 111, uses some different full-page illustrations, has no date, lacks the Henneberry part of the publisher, ...
This edition was discovered by Mark Anderson, a student in my Fable Literature course. It includes twenty-five of the sixty-three fables found in Kincaid's volume of the same title from Checkerboard in 1989. There ...
A Certain of Aesop's Fables Drawn into English Verse.
(Privately printed, 1926)
Now here is an anomaly of a book. I cannot remember where I got it or when, but I find that its price was £10. What kind of publisher is an address? The book must be very rare if it comes from a press so private! I ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Revised Version From Original Sources.
(Worthington Company, 1887)
Almost identical with the 1884 Allison edition. This book has a different cover and no gilt edges. See my extensive comments there. The next in this tradition then is the thinner Phoenix edition of 1892. I think this ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables
(D. Lothrop and Company, 1884)
Identical with the other printing of the same year, though in better condition, except for cheaper paper, a different cover, and omissions on the title page of the publisher's address and acknowledgement of the printer. ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Hodder and Stoughton, 1909)
I am delighted to find at last an early Detmold; the good copy is inscribed in 1912. The colored illustrations are lovely. Apparently the frontispiece (TMCM) is missing in both copies. The illustrations are separately ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
The transmutations on this book keep multiplying! This particular copy, in very poor shape, is closest to my 1885?/95? edition of same title, but is smaller, mentions only London, and places the fifty illustrations ...
Buch und Leben des hochberühmten Fabeldichters Aesopi
A real prize! These woodcuts of Steinhöwel's Ulm edition are beautifully reproduced: a title piece of Aesop, ten from the vita, and twenty-four with fables. I had heard of this book but figured I would never find it.
Chwedlau neu Ddammegion Aesop
(Argraffwyd a Chyhoeddwyd gan R. Hughes & Son,, 1870)
What a wonderful little treasure. The first book has a frontispiece of Aesop holding a scroll sitting in the countryside surrounded by animals. 140 fables, most with rectangular little illustrations reminiscent of Croxall. ...
Fabulae Aesopicae quales ante Planudem ferebantur
(Sumptibus Jo. Aug. Gottl. Weigel, 1810)
Lindseth reports that this edition, more complete than any that had preceded it, was first published in Florence in 1809. 423 fables in Greek. Latin notes. Indices of authors who mention Aesop, of authors who cite fables, ...
