The Fables of Aesop
Here is an extra copy of the 1945 printing of this book. This book has strong similarities to the first printing in its lovely black vine-and-leaf pattern stamped onto its red cover (but not spine). This edition lacks ...
Here is an extra copy of this book lacking the last six pages. This little book with a green-and-gold embossed cover has very good illustrations, particularly for the book's age. The plates are identical with those in ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Three Sirens Press on spine. NY: De Luxe Editions: Illustrated Editions Co, 1857)
Here is an extra copy of this book. I cannot get over the plethora of 1931 and 1931/33 Bennett editions! This one is identical with my 1857/1931/33 editions except for two features: both cover materials are different, ...
The Favourite Book of Fables, With Numerous Illustrations
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1891)
This book is identical with the 1890 (first?) edition, except for the changed date on the title-page. I am especially delighted to find it because my copy of the 1890 edition has two torn pages, and this copy is in good ...
The Book of Fables
(Sheldon Blakeman & Co.,, 1850)
This little (5½x almost 4½) volume answers a question raised earlier by a volume with the same bibliographical information. That book consisted of conundrums, and I wondered if the printer made a mistake. This little ...
The Fables of Aesop with a Life of the Author.
(John W. Lovell Co., 1865)

The Fables of Aesop [Cover: Warne's Edition of Aesop's Fables]
(Frederick Warne and Co./Scribner, Welford, and Armstrong, 1875)
Here is an extra copy of this book. I have been able to date this book to the period from 1872 to 1878, for it was during that six year period that Scribner's had the title Scribner, Welford, and Armstrong, which is listed ...
Aesop's Fables (Inside: Old Fables in a New Dress)
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1890)
This book has the same title, the same inside title, and the same contents as another book in the collection. What is different in this perhaps earlier publication is fourfold. First, the cover picture is not FC with a ...
The Ladder to Learning: A Collection of Fables Arranged Progressively in Words of One, Two, and Three Syllables, with Original Morals
(Grant and Griffith, Successors to John Harris, 1845)
See my remarks on the fourteenth edition in 1835. What has changed here? The engravings are now labeled on the title-page as wood engravings. Grant and Griffith has succeeded to John Harris as publisher. The company-name ...
(The Halford Sauce Companypublished for the proprietors [The Halford Sauce Co.], 1880)
A booklet like this shows one of the main reasons why I work on this collection. Aesop shows up in the strangest places! The preface bills this delightful sixty-four page booklet as a free translation of the Greek and ...
