Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(The World Publishing Co., 1910)
"There is already a copy of this book in the collection, found in 1992. Now some 33 years later, I have found a copy in better condition with a dust jacket. It is hard to believe that the book was printed as early as ...
The Fables of Aesop
(View Productions, Pty Ltd., 1985)
"There was a spate of reprintings of Detmold's "The Fables of Aesop" about the time that copyright on his 1909 edition ran out. This has a larger page format than those others, and it does not paste in his colorful ...
Aesop: Fables/Medieval Tales
(Great Books Foundation, 1963)
Two fables per page through 48 pages. Compare with the 1967 version, which is shorter, is mated with different works, and occupies a different place in the GB program. The versions seem to be developed from Jacobs.
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1963)
Alphabetical list at the book's front. Very few drawings, and they are not superior. Perhaps helpful for its clear applications. I think one can show a chronological progression among the three copies by watching ...
(The Halford Sauce Companypublished for the proprietors [The Halford Sauce Co.], 1880)

(Grosset & Dunlap, 1947)

This is a re-issue of the above book, with a touched up cover, title page, and copyright page. The price has gone up from 25 to 99 cents! And there is a new publisher involved.
The Aesop for Children
(Rand McNally, 1919)
A red covered book with 103 fables on eighty pages. Alternating pairs of pages are done in color and black-and-white. The principle of selection of the original edition's fables is not easy for me to grasp, and those ...
(The Heritage Press, 1941)
Here is the third of three extra copies of this book. Like the first copy, it is boxed and contains a copy of The Heritage Club Sandglass. This lovely book often brings high prices. Most of the illustrations are brown ...
(Book Sales, Inc., 1980)
Here is an extra copy of this book. I am not sure if Selway's coloring in of Billinghurst's engravings improves them. These drawings impress me as standard and even heavy. It is worth using one or two to show standard ...
