Promenade au Jardin des Fables
(Braun & Cie/Berger-LevraultBraun Berger-Levrault,, 1923)
One of the heavier and more pretentious books in the collection. The book seems to me to represent a kind of printer's dream, drawing in all sorts of illustrations. I have listed Berger-Levrault as a publisher, but they ...
(A. Flanagan Company, 1920)
A thirty-four page booklet listed as appropriate for the first grade. A Five Cent Edition if one buys at least five booklets! Otherwise one has to pay a whole six cents! There are many monosyllabic words and short ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
Closest to the 1901? and 1902? Lupton editions with the same title. See my comments there. Except for the title page and cover, the books seem identical. Like those, this book has no illustrations. In fact, this book ...
The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange.
(A.L. Burt Company, 1920)
This book is identical with one already in the collection, purchased from Brattle Books, but I give this copy a separate listing because that other copy includes hand-colored illustrations. This book is just as it came ...
(Societé d' Édition Les Belles Lettres.Société d'Édition "Les Belles Lettres", 1927)
I have a number of Chambry editions, but until now I had not found this simple book of translations. I am delighted to add another lovely Budé text. After 54 pages of introductory material paginated with Roman numerals, ...
The Fables of Aesop, Selected, Told Anew and Their History Traced
(Albert Whitman & Co., 1920)
By my best count, this is the seventeenth version I have of Heighway and Jacobs' work. This is a simple and smaller book than many (4½ x 6¾). It acknowledges neither Jacobs nor Heighway, but it does have J.J. as the ...
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 ...
(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.
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! ...
