(McLoughlin Brothers, 1901)
This edition stands out from others by Griset from McLoughlin in that it gives its own date (on a rock in the cover illustration). It has the lovely colored TMCM frontispiece one can find in both 1900? editions from ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F. M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1901)
Identical plates with the edition by the same publisher that I have listed under 1902?. This edition has a different cover and different paper; it also lists an address for the Lupton Publishing Company. This book ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Gallery Books, 1984)
This book puts together two people I have seen extensively elsewhere. The reproductions of Billinghurst are good. He shows occasional touches of imagination, but seems generally to provide a standard picture for a tale. ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(John Lane the Bodley Head Ltd., 1898)
A beautiful book, distinguished from the next (1924) edition by this edition's brown board covers embossed with animal figures. The illustrations seem quite sharp.
(W.B. Conkey, 1930)
This book is absolutely identical with the Homewood edition (1930?) of the same title except for the presence here of a frontispiece colored from Billinghurst's The Fox and the Goat. That same colored illustration ...
(Cambridge University Press? (George Harrap?)s.n.], 1936)
This is an exceeding strange book. It has the basic marks of Bodemann #434.1, Gooden's classic edition of Aesop. But it lacks any Gooden illustrations beyond the excellent initials for each fable. Bodemann shows a ...
a Fox & a Sick Lion
(Corydon Press, Indiana University, 1944)
A beautifully executed and preserved piece of work. L'Estrange's version is typically direct and involving. Low's colored wood-cut is bold and dramatic. For more of his work, see Harvest of World Folk Tales (1949/55).
Twelve Fables from Aesop from the Translation of Sir Robert [sic] L'Estrange 1692
(West of England College of Art, 1947)
Here is a rare find. I doubt that many copies were printed of this large-format book. It is in very good condition. Not in Bodemann. There are eight strong colored illustrations here; each fable seems to get two ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1898)
A very nice run of Griset and Croxall. The plates are identical with those in my Aesop's Fables (1893?) by Cassell. This book, I would guess, is the inexpensive reprint of that. Only the paper (cheaper here), the title ...
Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange.
(Dover Publications, 1967)
Lovely stuff. The drawings really are excellent. I saw the first edition of this book from Harrison in Paris for sale in Atlanta at too high a price but have since found it. I have eight different versions of this Dover ...
