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 ...
Favourite Fables in Prose and Verse
(Griffith and Farran, 1870)
Here is another binding of a book I have already in two other bindings. This time we have a standard cloth library binding from the Brooklyn Public Library. I am happy to see that it was taken out by some ten different ...
The Fables of Aesop: Selected, told anew and their history traced by Joseph Jacobs
(MacMillan & Co., 1894)
This book is internally identical with the Stella Books first edition I have listed under the same date. After years of not finding a first edition, I found two in a little over a year. See my comments there. This book ...

Les Fables d'Ésope, mis en Français, Avec le sens moral, en quatre vers, à chaque Fable. Tome Premier
(Chez Billois, 1801)
Dédiée à la Jeunesse. Note that I have only the first volume. Not in Bodemann. A charming little book, not least for its few but lovely illustrations. After a word to youth, there is Planudes' life of Aesop, embellished ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
Here is the first of three extra copies of this book. Lively and expressive watercolors for these three well-known fables: FG, FS, and FC. I like best the facial expressions in the stork story.
Here is an extra copy of this booklet. Twelve fables are recast with other characters and matched to the months, with pleasing art in the contemporary vein. For example, January has a cat leaping onto--and through--ice ...
