The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
Closest to the 1901? and 1902? Lupton editions with the same title. See my comments there. Except for the title page and cover, the books seem identical. Like those, this book has no illustrations. In fact, this book ...
The Fables of Aesop.
(A.L. Burt, 1900)
A wonderfully curious gift. As Tom points out, the book starts with a nice cover design modelled on Heighway's The Fisher and the Little Fish (116) with the addition of a background including modern ships. Adding ...
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 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 ...
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. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange.
(A.L. Burt Company, 1920)
This book is interiorly identical with another copy done by Burt for which I have guessed the same year of publication. This copy has a distinctive white cover picturing FS. Like other Burt editions, it adds Heighway's ...
(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 ...
Twenty Four Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists.
(E.P. Dutton and company, 1928)
Most of the illustrations are taken from Gheeraerts' edition from Bruges of 1567 (the three others are from Gheeraerts' work published in another edition of 1617). The high quality etchings are unfortunately a bit light ...
