Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange.
(Dover Publications, 1967)
Lovely stuff. The drawings really are excellent. I saw the first edition of this book from Harrison in Paris for sale in Atlanta at too high a price but have since found it. I have eight different versions of this Dover ...
(Cambridge University Press? (George Harrap?)s.n.], 1936)
This is an exceeding strange book. It has the basic marks of Bodemann #434.1, Gooden's classic edition of Aesop. But it lacks any Gooden illustrations beyond the excellent initials for each fable. Bodemann shows a ...
a Fox & a Sick Lion
(Corydon Press, Indiana University, 1944)
A beautifully executed and preserved piece of work. L'Estrange's version is typically direct and involving. Low's colored wood-cut is bold and dramatic. For more of his work, see Harvest of World Folk Tales (1949/55).
The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange.
(A.L. Burt Company, 1910)
Compared to an adjacent listing from the same publisher, this edition has a different spine layout, cover color (red, not green), series, and frontispiece (WC from Billinghurst, unacknowledged). As does that other Burt ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Omega Books, 1984)
This book is almost perfectly identical with one published by Gallery Books in the same year. My suspicion is that Gallery had the American contract and Omega the British contract. As I wrote then, this book puts together ...
The Fables of Aesop (?)
(T.Y. Crowell, 1910)
The text plates for this small edition are identical, even including pagination, with those in both editions of The Fables of Aesop (1930?), though this edition adds seven illustrations after Billinghurst and has smaller ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(American Book Exchange, 1880)
The plates are identical with those in the Arlington Edition by Hurst which I have listed under 1899?, but the pages are thinner and the reproduction of Griset's work is excellent. The Finis page here occurs by mistake ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1900)
This edition seems a standard Lupton edition, with its Later Fables beginning on 157. Compare it with my Lupton copies under 1901? and 1902?. The big surprise in this copy comes when one pages through and finds no ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Dodd Mead and Company,London: John Lane the Bodley Head/NY: Dodd, Mead, 1898)
A beautiful book, though the illustrations do not come out with first-rate clarity. L'Estrange's versions are often succinct.
(Homewood Publishing Company, 1930)
A curious melange. The text appears to be identical with that in Cassell's Aesop's Fables (1893/1893?) illustrated by Griset and in Hurst's The Book of Fables (1899?), also illustrated by Griset. The author, unacknowledged ...
