Esops Fabler Fritt Berattade efter LaFontaine, Rundell, Binder M. Fl.
(C & E. Gernandts For̈lags-AktiebolagC. & E. Gernandts Forlags-Aktiebolag, 1895)
A beautiful book with a surprising number of Griset illustrations, which seem to be of two types (see 99 for the two types on one page.) These etchings are done in different colors. Notice the three wolves jumping for ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1902)
Quite similar to the Arlington Edition (1899?), except for rearrangement and different spellings in titles. A note added to the editor's preface indicates the addition of 130 fables not in the first and second editions. ...
A Book of Fables
(Royle Publications Ltd.,, 1950)
A sideways pamphlet of fifteen fables alternating black-and-white and colored pairs of pages. Some fascinating and different details: A boy scout chides the son for riding the donkey. The old man tips the donkey into a ...
(Robert B. Collins, 1848)
Each of these seems a larger edition of my 1848/48? edition by a firm that somehow either included or excluded a brother! The address is also changed. The red and black covers of these beautiful books add gold to the ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Dorset Press, 1975)
This is a clear, crisp reprinting -- with almost no margins -- of Gambit's great book of 1975. The illustrations are still wonderful! As I wrote there, this is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine ...
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!
Aesop's Fables: 30 Fables from Thomas Bewick's Works, Volume IV (Memorial Edition).
(Workshop of Letterio Calapai, 1973)
Excellent prints from the original blocks of The Fables of Aesop (1818). The title's reference to Volume IV is apparently to Thomas Ward's five-volume memorial edition of Bewick's works, published in 1885-7. The best of ...
(Mitsui Fudosan, 1992)
These eleven colorful banners were hung in the lobby of 1251 Avenue of the Americas during renovations. Now this volume is dedicated to the tenants, guests, and friends for their patience and understanding during the ...
(PenguinPuffin Books, 1993)
A reprint in reduced dimensions of the lavish, beautiful first edition of 1981. Though the big format suits Holder's art better, the illustrations here are surprisingly sharp for a smaller work that is a reprint. Worth ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(H.M. Caldwell Company, 1885)
This is a strange book. Its closest relative is Three Hundred Aesop's Fables and One Hundred Picture Fables (1885?). But this edition's title page does not acknowledge the presence of the second book. It does reproduce ...
