Best Loved Fables of Aesop/Nonsense Alphabets.
(Grolier Society, 1967)
This book is identical (in larger format with enlarged and relatively good illustrations) with the Avenel edition (1967?) of the same name, except that it also contains Edward Lear's Nonsense Alphabets upside down and going ...
Bewick's Select Fables of Aesop and Others
(1784: T. Saint/1871: Bickers and Son, 1776)
Lovely, if sometimes simple, wood engravings. The best may be TT and DS. This is apparently an early work of Bewick's, not to be confused with the classic 1818 edition. Tripartite AI at the back. This copy is superior ...
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 ...
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 and La Fontaine.
(Duell, Sloan and Pearce, affiliate of Meredith Press, 1958)
A wonderful find sitting out on the table waiting for me! Excellent condition. Nineteen fables with witty and exuberant watercolors, many featuring cute insects having fun around the central action. The best illustration ...
[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 1
(Polytechnic Education Ltd.Samnakphim Phī. Ēt., 1979)
A strange little booklet. The first nine stories are vintage Aesop, finishing with a boxed moral in English and illustrated by (xeroxed?) polychrome and monochrome work of Robert Ayton in his small Ladybird editions of ...
Child's Own Fable Book
(Leavitt and Allen, 1860)
This fat little book includes two parts: Aesop's Fables (I) and Fables (II). It is an earlier (even first?) edition of a work I had found earlier and have listed under 1870? This work, like that, will delight those ...
Child's Own Fable Book
(Leavitt & Allen, 1870)
This fat little book will delight those tracking fable publication. A frontispiece from Weir introduces a book with Thomas James' 1848 introduction placed (Theddington Vicarage) but not signed. James' 203 fables in I ...
Aesop's Fables/Greek Myths/Bible Stories.
(Si-Sa-Mun-Hwa-SaSisa Munhwasa, 1978)
Ten fables with Korean footnotes, many with clever Checkup exercises at the bottom of the page. The tellings and the art are both traditional, apparently borrowed from a standard source (not Jacobs). The illustration ...
Aesopi Phrygis et Aliorum Fabulae
(Typis Io. Antonij RemondiniTypis Io: [Johannis] Antonij Remondini, 1757)
I found this little treasure during a break in Renard meetings in Turin. The bookstore owner had not been aware of it, but recognized it promptly when I found it and was even able to look up on the spot a published list ...
