Aesop's Fables Translated and with Full Notes
(Commercial Press, LimitedShang wu yin shu guan, 1921)
Here is a softbound reader with lots of explanations right after each paragraph -- and even each sentence -- of a fable. There are 126 fables on 326 pages. The whole book is deteriorating. There is a T of C at the ...
(Thomas Y. Crowell, 1921)
Apparently the American version of the British Coker edition (1921/33). Check my notes there. This edition adds two illustrations: TH (22) and FS (84). The pictures are done here on better, thicker paper; their colors ...
(J. Coker & Co., Ltd., 1921)
A treasure I am glad finally to have. Noble illustrated Vredenburg's fables (1920?) in a different style; frankly I prefer those illustrations to these. The six colored illustrations (in one-third and two-third page ...
Aesop A Thainig Go h-Eirinn Cnuasach A II
(The Irish Book Company, 1921)
I found this book at the same time that I found a book that is probably contemporary from a different publisher but also presenting fables in Gaelic. I have that other book, Aesop A Thainig Go h-Eirinn, also by Peadar Ua ...
(J. Coker & Co. Ltd., 1921)
Compare with my Coker edition of 1921/30. This has sharper illustrations. Here there is nothing on the back of the title-page where that has a history of printings. Might this be a first edition? The only item against ...
The Herford Aesop: Fifty Fables in Verse.
(Boston: LeRoy Phillips, Publisher/Boston: Ginn and Co: Athenaeum Press, 1921)
The verse seems good. Several of the illustrations catch hold of the reader: the exploding frog (19), the lion having eaten a man (21), and the crane with a bill in his bill (81).
(George G. Harrap & Company Ltd., 1921)
This book is closest to the Crowell edition I have listed under 1921?/1925?. Like it, it has illustrations of TH (22) and FS (84). Contrast with the British Coker edition (1921/33), which lacks those two illustrations. ...
(George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1921)
Most similar in items like cover and title page to my Coker edition (1930) of Fry's work. This edition at last gives me a date with which to anchor the first edition of this book. Unfortunately three of the eight colored ...
(Longmeadow Press: Dilithium Press, 1921)
A pleasing nostalgic edition. Probably a good source for morals (e.g., The creaking wheel gets the oil ). Good black-and-white illustrations of two mice (5) and of the thief and his mother (79). Good colored illustrations ...
(Washington Square: David McKay Company, 1921)
I had seen too many reproductions of Fry's work. This early (first?) edition, sitting on the shelf at Bonifant, shows how good her work is in color and black-and-white. The latter offer their own witty commentary on the ...
