(McLoughlin Brothers, 1910)
Here is yet another variation in a book I have already in three other forms, listed under 1900?. This copy has a simple brown cloth cover and spine without illustration. Both cover and spine read simply Aesop's Fables. ...
(Wordsworth ClassicsWordsworth Editions Ltd, 1912)
Several years ago I found in London a very inexpensive (£.90) paperback reproduced in 1995 from material in the Rackham/Jones edition of 1912. Now I have hit the other end of the financial spectrum in this country. I ...
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1910)
This book with Arthur Cooke's colored illustration of LM in a circle on its red cover is only my second Ward, Lock publication of Weir's work. It is smaller in format and thinner in inches but not in page count than that ...
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1910)
Here is another little book with plenty of curiosities. It was done by Ward, Lock, & Company about the same time that they did a larger-format book with, apparently, the same texts and the same eight full-page colored ...

A wonderful find! A nice title page illustration starts the book, and pleasant soft green borders remain throughout. There are 200 fables, indexed alphabetically at the front. The best illustrations include MM (15), AD ...
(The Palmer Company, 1911)
This book occurs at a fascinating point in publishing history. Stead's name in England is connected with Books for the Bairns. What I have seen of this series indicates that it follows a format of dividing every printed ...
(London: William Heinemann/NY: Doubleday, Page, and Co., 1912)
This book has a twofold claim to fame. First, it is a first edition of Rackham's Aesop's Fables. Thus the colored illustrations are thus very well done, and protected by slipsheets with the name of the illustration at ...
(Stead's Publishing House, 1911)
Strange things happen when one delves into publishing history. This is a pamphlet of at least 62 pages, followed by four pages of advertisements. I could not find a match with any of the Books for Bairns volumes of Aesop's ...
