(George G. Harrap & Company Ltd., 1921)
This book is closest to the Crowell edition I have listed under 1921?/1925?. Like it, it has illustrations of TH (22) and FS (84). Contrast with the British Coker edition (1921/33), which lacks those two illustrations. ...
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! ...
Aesop's Fables (with 30 colour plates)
(Ward, Lock & Co., Ltd., 1924)
I thought I had exhausted Ward and Lock's publications of Rountree's work with the editions that included forty-eight and sixteen illustrations, respectively. Wrong again! I have compared this work with the one containing ...
(Gallery Books, 1924)
My original Winder/Rountree (1924?) has fifty-eight fables, forty-eight illustrated. This has fifty-six, thirty illustrated. What has been dropped?: The Blackamoor, The Ass in the Tiger's Skin, and The Boy and ...
(J. Coker & Co., Ltd., 1921)
A treasure I am glad finally to have. Noble illustrated Vredenburg's fables (1920?) in a different style; frankly I prefer those illustrations to these. The six colored illustrations (in one-third and two-third page ...
(Thomas Y. Crowell, 1921)
Apparently the American version of the British Coker edition (1921/33). Check my notes there. This edition adds two illustrations: TH (22) and FS (84). The pictures are done here on better, thicker paper; their colors ...
Aesop's Fables (FC on cover)
(Collins' Clear-Type Press, 1922)
This is another thinner edition of The Children's Press edition of the same year, but it has more in common with it than the previous listing. The layout of the T of C is identical, as are the title-page illustration and ...
Aesop's Fables (FC on cover, no colored illustrations)
(Collins' Clear-Type PressThe Children's Press, 1922)
This is a derivative version--shorter and no doubt cheaper--of Rountree's works from The Children's Press (1922?) and Collins' Clear-Type Press (1922?). This book has only twenty fables, no colored illustrations, and a ...
Fables from Aesop
(Blackie & Son Ltd., 1920)
This is a book I almost missed. It looks familiar. Even after I received it, I thought it must be a copy of something I already have. Its front cover features a pasted colored illustration of a peacock with a crane ...
The Herford Aesop: Fifty Fables in Verse.
(Boston: LeRoy Phillips, Publisher/Boston: Ginn and Co: Athenaeum Press, 1921)
The verse seems good. Several of the illustrations catch hold of the reader: the exploding frog (19), the lion having eaten a man (21), and the crane with a bill in his bill (81).
