(Platt & Peck Co., 1905)
A curious reprinting of the Moffat original of 1905. See that entry for comment and this for contrasts. Rackham's TH is on the cover here, without acknowledgement. Townsend is no longer mentioned. The list of illustrations ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 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 ...
More Fables from Aesop (28C)
(F.A. Owen, 1905)
This is a limp cloth edition and apparently a reissue of the paper-covered edition listed as No. 28 of the Instructor Literature Series by the same publisher in the same year. See my notes there. This booklet does not ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(Saalfield Publishing Company, 1905)
This book represents the third publisher to use Godolphin's texts; see 1885 and 1895. This book uses many good illustrations done after Weir and four (59, 81, 85, and 88) after Griset. There is no frontispiece or title-page ...

Les Fables d'Ésope
(Garnier FréresLibrairie Garnier Frères, 1905)
Here is a translation of 426 fables, some with clearly marked variants. This text is based on Halm's 1901 edition of the fables. There are 333 pages and an AI.
Fables of Aesop
(The Rodgers Co., 1905)
This small book is closest to one I have listed under 1894/1910? As I mention a propos of that book, it is similar to four mentioned together under 1894/1901?, but these two have a number of distinctive features. The ...
(Moffat Yard & Company,, 1905)
Sixteen wonderful colored illustrations in perfect condition, as well as about twenty less good etchings. The Fowler edition is inscribed in 1908; it is hard to believe that a 1905 book is in such good shape. LM (40), ...
