Aesop's Fables (Well Loved Tales)
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975?)
Perhaps a better copy than the reproduction done by Book Essentials, which I have listed under the same year. See my comments there. This copy has the British price marked on the corner of the end-paper.
The Aesop for Children
(Rand McNally, 1919)
A green covered book with 146 fables on 112 pages. All the illustrations are colored. Patience has yielded four copies of the first printing. One copy, from Constant Reader, is in excellent conditiion. This copy was ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Clarion Books: Houghton Mifflin, 1971)
I immediately presumed that this book was a copy of one I already had. It turns out that I have several copies of the Weekly Reader printing and a paperback of this version but never had this hardbound source for the ...
The Baby's Own Aesop
(Frederick Warne and Co., 1887)
I went crazy when I first found this! Now see my comments on the more original Routledge edition of the same year. Copy A for $60 from Laurie in November of 1992 is in better condition. Copy B for $40 from Green Apple ...
Aesop In the Afternoon
(Citation Press, 1972)
A surprise find of a book I have sought for several years. Cullum presents the fables as dramas for teachers to use in less heady afternoon sessions of school. The fables, told traditionally, are divided according to the ...
The Medici Aesop
(Harry N. Abrams, 1488?)
What a treasure! A good introduction gives a concise history of Aesop, the text of the fables, and the illustrations. This hand-written and hand-painted manuscript was done from a printed book, Bono Accurzio's 1480 version ...
(Picture Book Studio, 1989)
Another victory for Neugebauer. A wonderful book. Zwerger's twelve ink-and-wash illustrations are witty and delightful. The best illustration features the camel dancing and the animals laughing. Other good illustrations ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F. M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1901?)
Identical plates with the edition by the same publisher that I have listed under 1902?. This edition has a different cover and different paper; it also lists an address for the Lupton Publishing Company. This book ...
The Fables of Aesop
(The Macmillan Co., 1894)
Identical with the 1929 printing of the 1894 edition except for the gaudy coloring of the frontispiece (a red fox and yellow grass!), the thick cheap paper, and the notation on the back of the title page that there was a ...
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 ...
