The Fables of Aesop
(Charles E. Graham & Co., 1900)
This book drives me crazy because it seems to be composed of things I have seen before. The frontispiece is a colored picture (the book's only one) of a wolf and a lamb, and I know I have seen it elsewhere. The top of ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1900)
This book is almost identical with the McLoughlin Brothers edition I have listed already under the same year with a question mark. In comparison, this book has a different, cream-colored cover. It has the same end papers ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Distributed by Crown PublishersWeathervane Books/Crown Publishers, 1909)
Some 300 fables in standard form and twenty-three beautiful colored illustrations. Their shortcoming is that they have little to do with the story. The best of the illustrations may be of the monkeys and their mother ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(Saalfield Publishing Company, 1905)
This book represents the third publisher to use Godolphin's texts; see 1885 and 1895. This book uses many good illustrations done after Weir and four (59, 81, 85, and 88) after Griset. There is no frontispiece or title-page ...
Aesop's Fables Told in Easy Words
(London: George Routledge/NY: E.P. Dutton/Toronto: The Musson Book Company, 1900)
I have often looked down on Weir's work because so much of it appears in poorly printed editions. There is, by contrast, a great deal to like here! There are forty-four fables, with an AI at the front. Some of the best ...
More Fables from Aesop (28)
(F.A. Owen, 1905)
This paper-covered pamphlet contains eight fables for first graders. The Instructor Literature Series contains 306 volumes at this time. The original price was $.07 or less. The fables are again told very simply. See ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F. M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1901)
Identical plates with the edition by the same publisher that I have listed under 1902?. This edition has a different cover and different paper; it also lists an address for the Lupton Publishing Company. This book ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1905)
I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to ...
The Fables of Aesop in Words of One Syllable.
(Henry Altemus Co., 1900)
This book replicates the book from the same publisher with the same title, except that it stops abruptly after 128, not even including the illustration for LM on 128. See my comments there. Its cover is white cloth, and ...
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!
