Aesop's Fables (with 30 colour plates)
(Ward, Lock & Co., Ltd., 1924)
I thought I had exhausted Ward and Lock's publications of Rountree's work with the editions that included forty-eight and sixteen illustrations, respectively. Wrong again! I have compared this work with the one containing ...
(Thomas Y. Crowell, 1921)
Apparently the American version of the British Coker edition (1921/33). Check my notes there. This edition adds two illustrations: TH (22) and FS (84). The pictures are done here on better, thicker paper; their colors ...
(J. Coker & Co., Ltd., 1921)
A treasure I am glad finally to have. Noble illustrated Vredenburg's fables (1920?) in a different style; frankly I prefer those illustrations to these. The six colored illustrations (in one-third and two-third page ...
Aesop's Fables [for the Children]
(Epworth Press J. Alfred Sharp,J. Alfred Sharp: the Epworth Press, 1920)
A remarkable find in very good condition. Fifty-two fables, listed in a T of C at the beginning. No numbers on the pages. Four full-color inserted pages of rather simple art ( The Cock, the Fox and the Dog on the ...
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! ...
(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.
(George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1921)
Most similar in items like cover and title page to my Coker edition (1930) of Fry's work. This edition at last gives me a date with which to anchor the first edition of this book. Unfortunately three of the eight colored ...
Aesop's Fables Translated and with Full Notes
(Commercial Press, LimitedShang wu yin shu guan, 1921)
Here is a softbound reader with lots of explanations right after each paragraph -- and even each sentence -- of a fable. There are 126 fables on 326 pages. The whole book is deteriorating. There is a T of C at the ...
Aesop's Fables (FC on cover)
(Collins' Clear-Type Press, 1922)
This is another thinner edition of The Children's Press edition of the same year, but it has more in common with it than the previous listing. The layout of the T of C is identical, as are the title-page illustration and ...
Aesop's Fables (FC on cover, no colored illustrations)
(Collins' Clear-Type PressThe Children's Press, 1922)
This is a derivative version--shorter and no doubt cheaper--of Rountree's works from The Children's Press (1922?) and Collins' Clear-Type Press (1922?). This book has only twenty fables, no colored illustrations, and a ...
