Almost Aesop: A Suite Based on Aesop's Fables
(Hal Leonard Publishing Corporation, 1988)
A brown pictorial cover opens this 16-page unstapled pamphlet offering three songs for two voices based on Aesop. That cover picture includes the six characters paired off in the fables: TH, BW, and LM. A short introduction ...
The Fables of Esope, Translated Out of Frensshe
(The Gregynog Press, 1931)
There are ninety-seven fables of Romulus in five books and seventeen further Aesop's fables in Caxton's late medieval versions. Caxton's ever-present slashes have been well replaced with colons. The title-picture includes ...
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 ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(A.L. Burt Company Publ.,, 1895)
This copy replicates another in the collection in almost every respect. The printing of the year 1895 on the verso of the title-page is clearer. Above all, it fills in the price for each book in the series on the very ...
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1848)
I am adding this copy to the collection because it improves on some of the features in a copy I already have. This copy does change one feature in the book I have already catalogued: it adds Made in the United States of ...
Aesops Fables (Inside: Old Fables in a New Dress)
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1890?)
The same size as my 1880 Aunt Louisa Series World-Wide Fables. I am delighted now to have a good copy. There are six brilliant full-page illustrations (and some curious retellings): FS, FG (the vineyard-owning dog appears ...
(J.B. Lippincott Company, 1892)
Beautiful leather covers and good illustrations. Surprisingly large margins; was the text perhaps set up for a smaller, cheaper edition? The best illustrations are of the horse and lion (75), the fox and goat (81), DLS ...
City Mouse--Country Mouse.
(Scholastic Book Services, 1970)
Meant for little kids. Pleasant water-colors with cartoon statements. The illustration style is itself that of kids. I enjoy the assemblies in BC. Also included is LM. Packaged with a 33 rpm recording.
Bewick's Select Fables
(Hillside Press, 1965)
Notable as one of the smallest Aesops I have found: about an inch square. The introduction (by F.E.I. ) points out that Bewick's originals were only two inches high. Eleven fables, each with an illustration, plus FC ...
The Fables of Aesop
(World Publishing Company, 1857)
The bonanza of Bennett editions continues! This one has the 1931 copyright; the revised 1933 (not the 1931) introduction--but it is not dated, as it is in other 1933 editions; it is from a different publisher (World--as ...
