The Fables of Aesop
(Macmillan Company, 1894)
A reprint of the 1894 edition, with a colored frontispiece of FC. Otherwise apparently a standard reprinting.
(Cassell & Company Ltd.,, 1893)
The illustrations are good, though not quite as good as in the Swedish edition I found earlier this summer. There is a list of illustrations on xi, and an AI at the back. A note at the end of the preface mentions that ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Dodd Mead and Company,London: John Lane the Bodley Head/NY: Dodd, Mead, 1898)
A beautiful book, though the illustrations do not come out with first-rate clarity. L'Estrange's versions are often succinct.
The Fables of Aesop
(The Macmillan Co., 1894)
Identical with the 1929 printing of the 1894 edition except for the gaudy coloring of the frontispiece (a red fox and yellow grass!), the thick cheap paper, and the notation on the back of the title page that there was a ...
(New York Publishing Company, 1895)
This book has identical plates with the American News edition (1885?) without Krilof's fables. This book has an embossed maroon cloth cover, much thicker pages than that edition, and pages gilt at the top. Can the plates ...

Aesop's Fables: A New Revised Version From Original Sources.
(The Phoenix Publishing Company, 1892)
This edition reproduces the 1884 Allison edition, which already had a colorful history. See my extensive notes on it. The paper here is cheaper and the illustrations therefore poorer. The publisher and date of publication ...

(Swyddfa'r "Genedl Gymreig"Swyddfa'r Genedi Gymreig, 1896)
This book reproduces Books for the Bairns -I that Stead published as the first volume in his Books for the Bairns series in 1896. The page count (62) and illustrations are identical. This copy has glazed pictorial paper ...
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1892)
This book seems to be the predecessor of Donohue and Henneberry's Aesop's Fables of 1896. This edition stops at 111, uses some different full-page illustrations, has no date, lacks the Henneberry part of the publisher, ...
Fables of Aesop
(Bay View Publishing Co.[Bay View Pub. Co.], 1894)
This book compares in rough fashion with the four mentioned together under 1894/1901?, but it has a number of distinctive features. The other four begin fables on 26 and end on 202 with And this is the end of Aesop's ...
