Fables of La Fontaine: Two Volumes in One
(Bazin & Ellsworth, 1858)
I am happy to land this stated Fifth Edition of Elizur Wright's work. The only date apparent here is the 1842 on the verso of the title-page, indicating a date of entry into the clerk's office of the district court of the ...
The Second Primary Reader; Consisting of Extracts in Prose and Verse. With Exercises in Enunciation. For the Use of the Second Classes in Primary Schools.
(Brewer and Tileston, 1858)
In poor shape, as befits a 140-year-old book. Nine fables without illustration. The moral is different for boys and girls in FC. The cat is to be corded, not belled. There are comments on fables in #4-5 on 32-33.

The Parables of Frederic Adolphus Krummacher translated from the Seventh German Edition
(Henry G. Bohn, 1858)
I am surprised to find, while this book takes the translations used in my 1854 edition of the same title by Lindsay & Blakiston in Philadelphia, this version has the Dalziel brothers copying the work done there--or perhaps ...
Aesop's Fables Complete
(J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1858)
Here is one of my earliest Tenniel editions. From what I can gather, it should more properly be called a Tenniel/Wolf edition, since I think the reworked illustrations were already done in 1851. This book may be quite ...
