The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 with those of Avian, Alfonso, and Poggio, now again edited and induced by Joseph Jacobs.
(Burt Franklin, 1889)
The Same as Volume 1 of the David Nutt entry. Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). I am eager to try some of Jacobs' scholarship. There is a wonderful pedigree of Caxton's Aesop facing 1.
The Caldecott Aesop
Lovely stuff, though the pictures are sometimes so bound to the contemporary social and political setting that it is hard for us to see the point. DLS is particularly good, with a skillful modern instance. Valuable ...
Three Hundred and Fifty Aesop's Fables.
(J.B. Lippicott & Co.J.B. Lippincott and Co., 1884)
Mr. Kniazev saw the Georgetown magazine article, got my phone number from the university, and called to offer this book. It has been very helpful because it gave me a firm first date for this book. I have since learned ...
(McLoughlin Brothers Publishers, 1880)
A favorite. The miller and his son shoulder the ass. Six pages of square colored pictures; some colors miss slightly. The verse text (British?) is sometimes at odds with the (American) illustrations, as when the mice ...
De Nieuwe Aesopus. Groot Fabelboek voor Jong en Oud.
(J.B. Wolters, 1880)
Beautiful and copious Griset work, though some turns out dark even in so careful an edition. There seem to be three different kinds of Griset engravings. The fables come from various authors. Curiosities include eyeglasses, ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Revised Version From Original Sources.
(William L. Allison Company, 1884)
A really curious book. Lots of illustrations from various people, including Doré. On 80-81 and 166-7 pictures appear from two different artists for the same story. On 218 there is an illustration without its story. ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables
(D. Lothrop and Company, 1884)
Prose versions followed by Bates' long poetic versions surrounded with art. Might individual pieces have appeared individually in children's magazines? Childe Hassam is the best known illustrator, but his work here on ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(George Routledge & Sons, 1883)
This book has the same text as the 1895 title mentioning the same author. However the order of the stories (about one hundred) and of the illustrators is different. This edition has a cock/dog frontispiece and a fox and ...
(The American News Company, 1885)
Some day it would be fun to do exact comparisons of all these Townsend editions. This one follows the order in the McLoughlin edition for its pictures for the first twenty pages or so, while varying the non-illustrated ...
(M.A. Donohue & Company, 1885)
Identical with the various editions of Three Hundred and Fifty Aesop's Fables. Better paper. Better illustrations. No pages missing. Advertisements in the back. I will keep it in the collection.
