Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...
Esope en belle humeur ou l'elite de ses fables enrichies de figures/Esopus bey der Lust
(Johann Christoph Kißner, 1729)
"Here is a second copy of this book, bound in a different order and lacking several of the pages in my better copy. Because it is different, I will keep it in the collection. First, what did I write about the original ...
Fables in Verse
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)

A Book of Fables
(Thomas Nelson & Sons Ltd., 1935)
This book is identical with another in the collection except for a few features. Like that book, it uses the plates used in my apparent first edition of Jack Orr's Aesop's Fables, which I have listed under 1927? Please ...
Aesop at College
(Smith and Company, 1911)
Forty fables, as the cover advertises. Though they are of varying quality, some are quite witty. Many, like TMCM and The Sheep in Wolf's Clothing, are played against the traditional grain, as in Ambrose Bierce's work. ...
Fables Original and Selected by the Most Esteemed European and Oriental Authors
(Charles Tilt, 1839)
I have worked my way back to what I believe is the original edition of this book. I have it otherwise in editions listed under 1842, 1842?, 1863, and 1869. The former two were published by Willoughby (the printer here) ...

Twenty Four Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists.
(E.P. Dutton and company, 1928)
Most of the illustrations are taken from Gheeraerts' edition from Bruges of 1567 (the three others are from Gheeraerts' work published in another edition of 1617). The high quality etchings are unfortunately a bit light ...
Jack and Jill
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895)
This book represents a great find on a lightning shopping visit over the lunch break of a Jesuit meeting. The book is in terrible condition, with virtually no spine left at all and all the pages loose. This curious book ...
