The title-page includes Collection de 145 gravures piquantes et d'apologues ingénieux. Pour servir a l'Education des Enfans des deux Sexes. Bodemann #187.5. It seems that there are not 145 illustrations but rather 128. ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version Chiefly from the Original Sources
(John Murray, 1867)
Here is a 1912 reprinting of a book I already have listed as the 1911 third edition. Inscribed at Christmas, 1913. See my comments there. This reprinting lacks the advertisements after the index at the back. In a curious ...
The Christian Aesop: Ancient Fables Teaching Eternal Truths
(Burns, Oates, and Company/Premier BooksKessinger Publishing, 1871)
Here is the hardbound version of the print-upon-order paperback I had found a year earlier. This book is a delightful find that I just looked at in a Kripke Conference paper. For each of fifty fables, Anderdon adds to ...

A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Dodd Mead and Company,London: John Lane the Bodley Head/NY: Dodd, Mead, 1898)
A beautiful book, though the illustrations do not come out with first-rate clarity. L'Estrange's versions are often succinct.
The Fables of Aesop
(Illustrated Editions Co., 1857)
Bennett's original black-and-white drawings make for a nice contrast with their better known colored version, to be found in Viking's 1978 edition and Bracken's 1986. The morals here are much shorter and less socially ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Three Sirens Press, 1857)
Now this is interesting. Somewhere in the summer of 1986 I found this book. Its corpus is identical with those of other Bennett editions but this book is one-fifth of them in size. The black-and-white illustrations are ...
