The Fables of Aesop
(Hodder and Stoughton, 1909)
I am delighted to find at last an early Detmold; the good copy is inscribed in 1912. The colored illustrations are lovely. Apparently the frontispiece (TMCM) is missing in both copies. The illustrations are separately ...
(Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1908)
A beautiful traditional Aesop that I had never had in my hand before. Excellent condition. Maybe 250 fables printed very nicely two or three to the page with no runovers. The brief versions may sometimes evidence a lack ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(Phonetic InstituteSir Isaac Pitman and Sons, 1900)
A curiosity to go along with Gregg (1919/30) and French stenography (1875?). Thirty-seven fables without illustration follow a T of C. The cover has come loose from the body of this quaint little book.
Muthon Aisopeion Ekloge (Greek): Choix de Fables d'Ésope: Texte Grec suivi d'un lexique
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1900)
The first surprise in this little book of 84 pages is the Jesuit seal on the title-page. Where does that come from? A two-page notice on Aesop precedes some forty-one Greek fables on 26 pages. A Greek-French dictionary ...
Aesop's Fables in Irish--Parts I to V
(The Irish Book Company, 1909)
Fifty fables and a vocabulary that stretches almost longer than the fables! Sorry. Since I cannot read this text, I do not have much more to say!
The Fables of Aesop in Words of One Syllable.
(Henry Altemus Co., 1900)
This book is a triumph of pirating! The very first story, WL, comes straight from Godolphin. Note that Altemus has used the same text in The Fables of Aesop (1899), both in and outside the Altemus' Young People's Library ...
Phaedri Fabulae Aesopiae
(Librairie Victor LeCoffre, 1900)
A compact paperbound edition of Phaedrus with helpful notes and a very extensive vocabulary--perfect for students. The copy has its own history, since it belonged earlier to the High School Library of St. Louis University ...
Aesop's Fables Told in Easy Words
(London: George Routledge/NY: E.P. Dutton/Toronto: The Musson Book Company, 1900)
This book reproduces with hard boards and a blue cloth spine the soft-covered printing I have under the same date by the same publisher. Like it, the cover's title is Aesop's Fables, while the title-page has Aesop's Fables ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Distributed by Random HouseGramercy Books, 1909)
By contrast with my other versions of Detmold's work, this edition has some 174 pages, since the twenty-three illustrations are numbered pages. A quick check suggests that the print plates are still the same, however. I ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1900)
This edition seems a standard Lupton edition, with its Later Fables beginning on 157. Compare it with my Lupton copies under 1901? and 1902?. The big surprise in this copy comes when one pages through and finds no ...
