Fables of Aesop and others
(T.O.H.P. Burnham, 1863)
The engravings in the copy from Titles are especially well done. Besides the alphabetical T of C at the beginning, there is an index of subjects at the end. It refers mostly to the virtues inculcated in the longish ...
Aesop's Fables in French
(Henry HoltSchönhof & Moller, 1864)
Wonderful treasures! The advertisement following the title page claims that Aesop is the usual first book for learning French. LaFontaine is not mentioned; the French of the fables is taken from the Latin of Abbé Paul. ...
Aesop's Fables Illustrated
(Samuel R. Wells, 1870)
AI at the beginning and a list of illustrations. Tenniel's illustrations are wonderful; they are best, though not terribly distinct, in the coverless copy. Both books with covers are falling apart. Fortunately, the ...
Aesop's Fables for Little Readers
(T. Fisher Unwin, 1880)
Fifty-six fables are numbered here in a book with a weak spine. Ford does sepia throughout, starting with a frontispiece of The Old Tree and the Gardener and a sepia title-page: is that Aesop telling children stories about ...
The Robinson Crusoe Picture Book
(George Routledge and Sons, 1865)
See my comments on my 1870 Old Friends and New Faces. Might it have been a cheaper knock-off of this book? The order of the sections has changed, for there QC, AF, and Cock Sparrow (not the longer title here) followed ...
The Fables of Aesop
(©1966 Legacy Press. Ann Arbor: University Microfilms, Inc.: Xerox., 1894)
Is it not curious that this publisher would choose to go back to Jacobs and Heighway the very year that Schocken picked them up? An unidentified Legacy Library editor G.H. writes an introductory note to the reader. ...
Two Fables of Aesop With Designs on Wood
(Vagabond Press of Lloyd Whydotski, 1818)
Nice cuts of The Lion, the Tiger, and the Wolf and The Envious Man and the Covetous. A curious little book. Notice the spelling of the city in Wisconsin!
C.D. Cobb & Bros. Advertising Magazine
(C.D. Cobb & Bros. Advertising Magazine, 1881)
This is a curious circular put together apparently by a store with a main location and three branches in Boston and further branches in Westboro and Fitchburg. This 32-page stapled pamphlet combines various advertisements ...
(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 ...
The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 with those of Avian, Alfonso, and Poggio, now again edited and induced by Joseph Jacobs.
(Burt Franklin, 1889)
The Same as Volume 1 of the David Nutt entry. Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). I am eager to try some of Jacobs' scholarship. There is a wonderful pedigree of Caxton's Aesop facing 1.
