(Societé d' Édition Les Belles Lettres.Société dʼédition les Belles Lettres, 1927)
Uncut pages. See my comment on the first edition in 1927. This is a helpful bilingual edition. And I remember fondly Victoria and its owner.
Les Subtiles Fables D'Esope, Lyon Mathieu Husz, 1486
(Association Guillaume le Roy, Lyon/Charles Eggimann, ParisC. Eggimann seul dépositaire,, 1926)
Here is an unusual piece of work. It is unstitched as issued and mostly unopened. Its paper covers are torn at the spine. After the colored frontispiece (from a 13th-century Lyon Isopet manuscript), there are 208 ...
(Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd, 1925)
Here is a thirty-two page pamphlet that I had not found for years and then found twice within one week. It features twelve full-page colored illustrations signed something like Abbé or Alli. It also includes frequent ...
(Lentz Verlag, 1999)

(Elatus Verlag, 1996)

The Fables of Aesop with Instructive Applications Illustrated with One Hundred Engravings
(Milner and Sowerby, 1860)
This seems to be a reprint of the book I have listed under 1843. The publisher has changed from William Milner to Milner and Sowerby. The indication of the same as printer at the bottom of the last page no longer includes ...
Aesop: 12 Fabeln
(BilderbuchstudioMichael Neugebauer Verlag, 1989)
This book is almost identical with the English version I have from 1989 as put out by Picture Book Studio. They share the same size and format. This book has the same cover picture of the dancing camel but lacks the dust ...
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable
(Rand McNally & Company, 1973)
I thought I had this book, and was wrong again! In fact, it is a copy of the much larger book of the same year from the same company. Where that book was 8 x 10¼, this little book is 4¾ x 6½. This book needs thinner ...
