Les fables d'Ésope, avec soixante figures d'après Barlow : collection de gravures piquantes eta d'apologues ingenieux pour l'amusement et l'instruction de la jeunesse.
(Chez Genets jeune, 1805)
As Bodemann points out, this edition adds a life of Aesop to earlier editions, though those seem to have included more fables and illustrations. This is a landscape-formatted smaller (6½" x 4½") book. I have seen this ...
(Apple Classics: Scholastic Inc., 1963)
A later reworking of Scholastic's 1963 edition, with no indication of the new date. The covers are new. About Aesop is at the back. T of C is added at the front; AI at the back is dropped. The same plates are used, but ...
Fabulae Aesopicae ad Optimorum Librorum Fidem Accurate Editae
(Sumtibus et Typis C. TauchnitiiSumtibus et typis Caroli Tauchnitii, 1829)
This is a classic text as many classicists would like it most: nothing but the Greek text of 423 Greek-titled fables on 190 small pages (4 x 5½). Since this edition occurs after Schneider's publication of the Augustana ...
Aesop's Fables (with 30 colour plates and 18 sepia illustrations)
(Ward, Lock and Co., Ltd., 1924)
This book sits precisely between two others I had already found. Both are listed under the same date. One has thirty illustrations and the other forty-eight. Let me mention then which of the two this book resembles on ...
Aesop's Fables (with 24 colour plates)
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1924)
It is hard to believe, but this is the third distinct book I have found now in the Sunshine Series by Ward and Lock. The other two have, respectively, sixteen colored plates and sixteen colored plates plus eight sepia ...
Aesopi Phrygis Fabulae Elegantissimis iconibus veras animalium species ad viuum adumbrantibus
(Apud Ioan. Tornaesiumapud Ioannem Tornaesium, 1551)
This little book is an earlier edition of what had long been the oldest book in the collection, listed under 1619? This book is Bodemann #29. What a great thing! Bodemann's twenty-ninth oldest book! See my description ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version Chiefly from Original Sources
(Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott and Co./London: John Murray, 1869)
This book is nearly identical with that from John Murray that I have listed under 1867/74. See my comments there. This edition places the list of illustrations where its page numbers should locate it rather than before ...
Aesop's Fables Embellished with One Hundred and Eleven Emblematical Devices
(Printed at the Chiswick Press by C. Whittingham for J. Carpenter J. Booker, Sharpe and Hailes, and J. Carr,, 1813)
This is a curious find. At first it seems very similar to two smaller books, published in 1839 and 1841, with which it shares the words emblematical devices and a title-page illustration of a man seated in the countryside ...
(Ernst Heimeran VerlagErnst Hemeran, 1944)
Urtext und Übertragung. This paperback book is especially valuable because Hausrath himself did one of the standard texts of Aesop in the original. His translations have to be helpful. This book is bilingual on facing ...
(Penguin Books, 1995)
A lovely little paperbound booklet with Rackham's TH illustration on its cover and sixty-six well-chosen fables inside.
