Aesop A Thainig Go h-Eirinn
(Brun Agus O Nuallain, TeorBrún agus Ó Nualláin, 1920)
Some ninety-four fables in this book of 138 pages with a bright red cloth cover showing BW in white. There are delightful little black-and-white illustrations, like that for the battling frog and mouse on 35; one hardly ...
Aesop A Thainig Go h-Eirinn Cnuasach A II
(The Irish Book Company, 1921)
I found this book at the same time that I found a book that is probably contemporary from a different publisher but also presenting fables in Gaelic. I have that other book, Aesop A Thainig Go h-Eirinn, also by Peadar Ua ...
The Fox and the Stork
(John F. Shaw & CompanyJohn F. Shaw & Co. Ltd.,, 1920)
The cover adds an explanatory phrase to the title: Stories from Aesop. The book was apparently once given to Jean Blakeley from Zion Methodist Sunday School in Bradford. There are twenty fables reproduced on very heavy ...
(Newson & Company, 1928)
This pamphlet measures almost 6 x 4½ and has 48 pages. BF is on its front cover and FG on the back. Inside there are nine fables, two reflections, and one bit of biography. The illustrations are classic. The illustrators ...
Aesop's Fables (TH on cover)
(The Children's Press, 1922)
This book is very close to another that I have, but it also shows tantalizing differences. The most obvious is that the back cover (and the back dust jacket) advertise not Nestlé's milk but rather its competitor Ovaltine! ...
(G. Bell and Sons Ltd.,, 1925)
This is a slightly changed reprinting of the original from 1913. Like it, it is a clean copy with good illustrations. The changes come in two areas. I will describe them and then include the pertinent remarks from that ...
(Societe d'edition " Les Belles lettres"Societé d' Édition Les Belles Lettres., 1927)
Lovely Budé text of 358 fables. No notes. Index at the back. Chambry explains on v-vi the numbering changes from his standard-setting two-volume work: The Horse and the Boar was a doublet in the earlier work (#144 ...
(A. Flanagan Company, 1920)
I have another copy of this booklet in a different printing. I will refer to it by the name of the man who sold it to me on eBay in 2000, John Abbas. This Karaba copy found in 2006 may be older. The only difference I ...
(Exeter Books, 1924)
Surprisingly good runs of the reproductions of Rountree's work. This book is closest to the sixteen-illustration edition of 1924? As is typical of Exeter, there is no introductory or bibliographical material.
(J. Coker & Co. Ltd., 1921)
Compare with my Coker edition of 1921/30. This has sharper illustrations. Here there is nothing on the back of the title-page where that has a history of printings. Might this be a first edition? The only item against ...
