Hundert und acht Äsop'sche Fabeln für die Jugend
(Verlag von Wilhelm Nitzschke, 1920)
Neu bearbeitet und mit moralischen Anmerkungen versehen. Not in Bodemann. Seventy-two pages plus four inserted water-color illustrations. T of C at the beginning notes the four fables that have the colored illustrations. ...
(Exeter Books, 1924)
Surprisingly good runs of the reproductions of Rountree's work. This book is closest to the sixteen-illustration edition of 1924? As is typical of Exeter, there is no introductory or bibliographical material.
Aesop's Fables (TH on cover)
(The Children's Press, 1922)
This book is very close to another that I have, but it also shows tantalizing differences. The most obvious is that the back cover (and the back dust jacket) advertise not Nestlé's milk but rather its competitor Ovaltine! ...
(G. Bell and Sons Ltd.,, 1925)
This is a slightly changed reprinting of the original from 1913. Like it, it is a clean copy with good illustrations. The changes come in two areas. I will describe them and then include the pertinent remarks from that ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Books Inc.,, 1925)
Printed from the same plates as my 1930? edition. See the description there. Their differences touch the cute dust-jacket (Aesop's Fables), the pre-title page ( Aesop's Fables 251 Series ), the title page (publisher ...
The Herford Aesop: Fifty Fables in Verse.
(Boston: LeRoy Phillips, Publisher/Boston: Ginn and Co: Athenaeum Press, 1921)

(Ward Lock & Co., Limited,, 1920)
Here is a fragile book of 256 pages. As the opening T of C shows, there are 58 fables. This is the only non-illustrated edition I have of Blanche Winder's work. Normally her texts are associated with the visual work of ...
Die erneuerten Aesopischen Fabeln nebst den hiezu geeigneten Lehren zusammengetragen zum wahren Nutzen und unterhaltenden Vergnuegen
Here is a hardbound copy in good condition of a favorite book of mine that, in both copies, is in only poor condition. This book offers the twenty hand-colored illustrations similar to or identical with Steinhoewel's ...
The Fables of Aesop (Cover and spine: Aesop's Fables)
(Albert Whitman, 1925)
Here is a singular find. I had never seen this book before, and I cannot find it mentioned in Hobbs, Quinnam, or Lindseth. I checked for a formulaic text adapted from LaFontaine and Croxall identified as this book's ...
(John C. Winston, 1928)
This book is almost exactly identical with another found at Brattle Books. The only difference between the two copies is the series listing on the back of the title page: that book shows The Child's Garden of Charming ...
