Aesops Fables (Inside: Old Fables in a New Dress)
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1890?)
The same size as my 1880 Aunt Louisa Series World-Wide Fables. I am delighted now to have a good copy. There are six brilliant full-page illustrations (and some curious retellings): FS, FG (the vineyard-owning dog appears ...
(J.B. Lippincott Company, 1892)
Beautiful leather covers and good illustrations. Surprisingly large margins; was the text perhaps set up for a smaller, cheaper edition? The best illustrations are of the horse and lion (75), the fox and goat (81), DLS ...
The Little Esop
(Philadelphia: Smith and Peck; New Haven: Durrie and Peck, 1844)
A wonderful little treasure. The paper is stained, but the book is otherwise in great shape. The best illustrations are The Stag and His Horns (29) and LM (45). In versions different from the usual, the mouse gets into ...
Les Fables d' Ésope, Mises en François, Avec le sens moral en quatre vers
(Chez Amable Leroy, Libraire, 1802)
The title continues Nouvelle edition, revue, corrigée et augmentée de la vie d'Esope, dédiée á la Jeunesse. What a wonderful find on eBay! This little book is about 3½ x 5½. The life of Aesop, unillustrated, takes the ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(George Routledge and Sons Limited,, 1887)
This is the fourth similar book, and I have two copies of it. Because both are in relatively poor condition, I will keep both in the collection. Of the similar books, two have noticeably different covers and come from ...
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1848)
This book has the same text and illustrations as the earlier Grosset and Dunlap edition (1890?). Very good runs on the illustrations here. The cover and title page are different; the latter lacks not only names but ...
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.
The Fables of Aesop
(JBL & Co., 1880?)
This is a curious little book without title-page. It contains Croxall's dedication, preface, and usual AI in addition to all the fables with their longish applications, but it lacks the index to the morals at the end. ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Henry Altemus, 1899)
This book seems a cheaper version of the Altemus' Young People's Library edition; see the two copies of this edition listed nearby. This book shares the same spine format with the Yoffee copy there, but has a dark ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable with Illustrations
(Cassell & Company Limited,, 1888)
Here is a second copy, slightly different and again in poor condition, of a book already in the collection. Its front cover, a pictorial red board, shows a circular image of FK. At its bottom is Copyright 1888 O.M. Dunham. ...
