Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange
(Dover Publications, 1967)
I have already listed versions of this book under the same date. Those copies, I noticed, have a wide price range starting at $1.50. Here is an earlier copy from Dover with a price of $1.25. A confirmation of its early ...
(Franklin Watts, 1968)
An old Library of Congress book that was never taken out once and so is in excellent condition. Vastly superior in its illustrations to the Avenel facsimile (1975?). This is not a facsimile, for it omits the illustration ...
(London: J.M. Dent & Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton & Company, 1961)

Aisopou Mythoi (Greek)
(Adelphon Konstantinide[Ekdoseis Adelphōn Kōnstantinidē], 1966)

(Harvard University Press, 1967)
A valuable book for which I sought a long time. I was amazed to find it in this downtown San Diego store whose owner thought he had nothing for me. The introduction gives a clear picture of the provenance of Caxton's ...
