Fables Choisies, mises en vers par M de la Fontaine
(Aux dépens des Libraires associés, 1790)
This long-lived little volume comes as a gift from old collector friends. It includes the first seven books of La Fontaine's fables in addition to the usual introductory material. It is very close, for these seven books, ...
Fables of Aesop and Others. Translated into English. With Instructive Applications and a Print before each Fable
(J.F. and C. Rivington, T. Longman, B. Law, et alPrinted for J.F. and C. Rivington B. Law, C. Dilly, [etc.],, 1786)
Except that it is in poor condition internally, it is hard to see differences between this and my eleventh edition of 1778. As there, we find here 329 pages and an index. The covers here are separating from the book. ...
Fables by the Late Mr Gay In One Volume Complete
(W. Strahan ... [etc.]W. Strahan, J. and F. Rivington, J. Buckland, L. Hawes, et al., 1772)
Bodemann #110.8. Bodemann identifies the new engraver as James Taylor. These seem to be imitations of earlier themes established for Gay's fables in the early editions, especially by Wootton and Kent. See my editions ...
Aesopi Phrygis et Aliorum Fabulae
(Vincentius Laurentii, 1781)
This tight little book is squarely in the tradition of the other books of the same title that I have listed under 1767? and 1777. This volume is missing 99-118. By comparison with the latter, the title-page here has ...
Fables du Pere Desbillons, Traduites en François par le Même, avec le Latin à coté, corrigé de nouveau, Vol. I-II
(Chez Durand neveu ...,Chez Gay/Chez Durand, 1779)
Two volumes in one. I am delighted to get this book by my Jesuit model of so long ago. This book is a translation of his own work in 1779. I wonder in what spirit he wrote this book. It is, for the first nine books of ...
Phaedri Augusti Liberti et Fl. Aviani Fabulae

The title goes on Accedunt Fabulae Graecae Latinis respondentes et Homeri Batrachomyomachia cum Latina Versione Recens Addita. In usum Scholarum Seminarii Patavini. Busy title-page! Hoogstraten did his edition, beautifully ...
Herrn Daniel Wilhelm Trillers Philos. Ac Med. D. Archiatri Nassouici, Neue Aesopische Fabeln.
(Christian Herold, 1740)
The unassuming present-day green cloth cover hides a lovely book here! I have known Herold as publisher of the 1750 editions of Carl Mouton, including Esope en belle humeur. This volume has the same compact size, the ...
Äsopische Fabeln mit moralischen Lehren und Betrachtungen
(Diogenes Taschenbuch, 1757)
This is the later paperback reproduction of the Hennsel Verlag edition of 1987. This paperback colors in the cover illustration and adds a few pages of advertisements at the end. Though the book is smaller in every ...
Poems, Fables, and Plays by Edward Moore
(R. and J. Dodsley/Reprint: Gregg International Publishers, 1756)
This is a photographic reproduction of a collection of works by Moore. Among them we find the same fifteen fables--and in the same order--as in my 1744 edition by R. Francklin. See my comments there. This is a sturdy ...
