Three Hundred and Fifty Aesop's Fables.
(J.B. Lippicott & Co.J.B. Lippincott and Co., 1884)
Mr. Kniazev saw the Georgetown magazine article, got my phone number from the university, and called to offer this book. It has been very helpful because it gave me a firm first date for this book. I have since learned ...
(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 ...
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
(John B. Alden, 1883)
Again, I thought I was picking up a good second copy of a book where my first copy may have been in only fair condition. And this book is very close to one that I have listed under the same title and publisher in 1885. ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
Aesop's Fables Part I.
(Educational Publishing Company, 1894)
This is a reproduction of the first nine fables of Aesop's Fables (1892) by the same author and publisher. Notice that Aesop represents the first material for the first grade in the five cent classics advertised inside ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(A.L. Burt Company Publ.,, 1895)
Two things distinguish this little book: its monosyllables and the mix of drawings. Besides the majority of them, which are taken from Percy Billinghurst, there are several in a different medium and style, most of which ...
(Donohue Henneberry & Co.,, 1896)
This large-format book may be the best example in my collection of eclecticism and borrowing of established illustrations in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century book publishing. At least three great Aesopic ...
Esops Fabler Fritt Berattade efter LaFontaine, Rundell, Binder M. Fl.
(C & E. Gernandts For̈lags-AktiebolagC. & E. Gernandts Forlags-Aktiebolag, 1895)
A beautiful book with a surprising number of Griset illustrations, which seem to be of two types (see 99 for the two types on one page.) These etchings are done in different colors. Notice the three wolves jumping for ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and a Print Before Each Fable
(H. Mozley, 1807)
See my comments on the 1804 edition by the same publisher. By contrast, this book lacks the frontispiece and any title-page vignette; further its title above CJ on 1 (Aesop's Fables) is simpler, and the cuts are much ...
Masterpieces: Pope, Aesop, Milton, Coleridge, and Goldsmith.
(Fowler & Wells Co., 1889)
A wild find nowhere near where fables might usually show up in this store. The second section of this five-part book is almost identical with the 1870 and 1873 booklets Aesop's Fables Illustrated. The only difference I ...
