The Book of Fables: Selections from Aesop, and other Authors Explained and Adapted to Popular Use
(Robert B. Collins, 1856)
This book reproduces almost exactly Fables from Aesop and Other Writers of Standard Celebrity Explained and Adapted to Popular Use (1851) by Baldwin, published in Philadelphia by Hogan & Thompson. All that seems lacking ...
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 ...
City Mouse and Country Mouse
(Quarto PublishingSt. Martin's Press, 1996)
First published in the USA by St. Martin's Press. This book comes with a kit for making the two mice. It can be viewed at http://aesop.creighton.edu/jcupub/soft_sculptures.htm. The soft-sculpture mice appear several ...
Aesop's Fables with Upwards of One Hundred and Fifty Emblematical Devices
(John Locken, 1849)
This very little book (3¼ x 4½) reproduces almost exactly my 1839 and 1841 editions from Thomas, Cowperthwait & Company, also in Philadelphia. It thus has 228 pages. This book has even smaller margins than those, and so ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and a Print Before Each Fable
(Published by Joseph M'Dowell, 1836)
First, there is this bad news: 195-201 are missing. This book uses apparently the same after Kirkall plates that were used in my Cowperthwait edition of 1850 and my 1840 edition of unknown origin. My test case for this ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version from Original Sources
(Lilliput Press, 1995)
Here is the smallest and perhaps the finest of the miniature books in this collection. It has a hand-colored frontispiece and a lovely colored dust-jacket. I count about twenty-five fables here, each with an illustration. ...
(The Heritage Press, 1941)
This lovely book often brings high prices. Most of the illustrations are brown on white. Some add a golden background. A few show good wit. I would like to include one or two in a slide lecture. Having just worked ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Edmund S. WoodMinia Press, 1943)
Lovely old--but rather fragile and beaten--miniature about an inch square. Several Heighway drawings are pirated in besides the approximately twenty drawings from Bennett.
(DoubledayGarden City Books, 1954)
Large and not very impressive pastels. I have at least three different versions of this book, based on criteria of price, dust-jacket back flaps, cover design, and binding. This first version originally cost $2.50, whereas ...
