(McLoughlin Brothers, 1898)
A very nice run of Griset and Croxall. The plates are identical with those in my Aesop's Fables (1893?) by Cassell. This book, I would guess, is the inexpensive reprint of that. Only the paper (cheaper here), the title ...
Fables and Stories Moralized, Being a Second Part of the Fables of Aesop and Other Eminent Mythologists, etc., Vol. II
(Printed for Richard Sare near Grayes-Inn-Gate in Holborn, 1715)
Formerly presented to the Portsmouth Athenaeum by George Jaffrey, Esq. The covers are separated. Otherwise it is in fair to good condition. 5 x 7½. There are 277 numbered fables with morals and without illustrations. ...
Twelve Fables from Aesop from the Translation of Sir Robert [sic] L'Estrange 1692
(West of England College of Art, 1947)
Here is a rare find. I doubt that many copies were printed of this large-format book. It is in very good condition. Not in Bodemann. There are eight strong colored illustrations here; each fable seems to get two ...
Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists with Morals and Reflexions, bound with: Fables and Storyes Moralized, Being a Second Part of the Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists, etc.
(Printed for R. Sare ... [and 9 others],Printed for R. Sare, A. & J. Churchil, D. Brown, T. Goodwin, M. Wotton, J. Nicholson, G. Sawbridge, B. Tooke, and G. Strahan; Vol. II printed for Richard Sare, 1708, 1708)
Bodemann does not seem to have a separate listing for other than the 1692 first edition of L'Estrange's work. The second edition was in 1694, the third in 1699. In the same year, L'Estrange put out a second volume. My ...
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 Based on the Texts of L'Estrange and Croxall (smaller format: 5¼x 6¾)
(Thomas Y. Crowell Company, 1903)
This book is to a large extent identical with the one from the same publisher that I have listed under 1910? The selection and placement of illustrations seem to be slightly different (though in both cases from Billinghurst). ...
The Fables of Aesop Based on the Texts of L'Estrange and Croxall (larger format: 5½x 7½)
(Thomas Y. Crowell Company, 1903)
These two books use the identical plates used to make the smaller format book published by Crowell in the same year. Thus they have 230 pages and 330 fables. See my comments there. These books have a slightly larger ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables, Complete, with text based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. With Copious Additions from other Modern Authors
(Hurst & Co., 1890)
This book is like two others that I have. Its contents are very much like those in the Arlington Edition put out by Hurst and listed under 1899? There is no indication of an Arlington Edition here. It is exactly like a ...
