Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
This lovely little book in fine condition is very close to the Townsend/Weir Three Hundred that I have put at 1885?/1895?, but there are several differences. Slightly smaller in its dimensions, this volume has a bright ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(G. Routledge and Sons Ltd.,George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
Closest to the McLoughlin (1885?) versions of the same title, this volume differs by its red cover with a girl holding a bird (Aesopic?), its four colored illustrations by Weir, and its excellent prints of the illustrations. ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version Chiefly from the Original Sources
(John Murray, 1867)
Here is another copy of the book first published in 1867. This copy is covered in blue cloth, but with a beautiful golden illustration with title and author embedded in the front cover. As I remark elsewhere, Tenniel's ...
Aesop's Fables: The Holland Edition of 1659
(The Halford Sauce Company, 1897)
As often happens, something I had never seen before has reappeared within six months. And as often happens, I thought I was buying a second copy of exactly the same booklet I already had. It turns out that this is the ...
Some of Aesop's Fables with Modern Instances
(MacMillan and Co., 1883)
The engravings of Caldecott's drawings are here of course in black-and-white, and they are excellent! I just showed a number of these in class yesterday! A wonderful addition to the collection. By comparison with the ...
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!
Select Fables of Aesop and Other Fabulists
(Printed for William Osborne and J & H Mozley, GainsboroughPrinted for Willm. Osborne & J.H. Mozley, 1850)
This is a small book, falling apart. It is almost identical with other Dodsley editions, but a quick check of the frontispiece and title page shows clear differences, additions and subtractions. The book's condition is ...
Aesopi Fabulae (Eton School)
(Cummings and HilliardCummings et Hilliard, 1812)
AI on v. 164 fables in Greek, with Latin notes. No illustrations. Compare how two books have weathered 175 years!
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 ...
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 ...
