Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(The World Publishing Co., 1910)
"There is already a copy of this book in the collection, found in 1992. Now some 33 years later, I have found a copy in better condition with a dust jacket. It is hard to believe that the book was printed as early as ...
The Fables of Aesop
(View Productions, Pty Ltd., 1985)
"There was a spate of reprintings of Detmold's "The Fables of Aesop" about the time that copyright on his 1909 edition ran out. This has a larger page format than those others, and it does not paste in his colorful ...
Young Life Magazine, December, 1982
(Orthodox Christian Education Commission, Canonical Orthodox Bishops of America, 1982)
This is Volume 18, Number 4 of this magazine For Orthodox Christian Children. The back cover is a full-page black-and-white sketch by Ann Marie Peckham of DS. How nice of Mr. Stangas to think of me! His researches have ...
My Book of Favourite Fables Adapted from Aesop's Fables
(Award Publications Limited, 1995)
This is a smaller presentation of My Big Book of Favourite Tales by the same publisher in 1983. The plates are exactly the same but reduced proportionally. In fact, these illustrations are sharper. The colorful illustrated ...
(Ernst G. Mortensen, 1941)

(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1994)
Here is the first printing of a pamphlet whose republication I have listed under 1995 from the same publisher. Books in this edition and this year cost $2.50. When reprinted a year later, they cost $2.95. See my comments there.
Esops Fabler Fritt Berattade efter LaFontaine, Rundell, Binder M. Fl.
(Beijers Bokförlagsaktiebolag, 1915)
This book is similar to one already in the collection twenty-seven years ago. That one was published in 1895 by C. & E. Gernandts Forlags-Aktiebolag. It was, I believe, a revised second edition. Though this edition by ...
(Kooperativa Förbundets Bokförlag, 1945)
Like the original Danish version, which is in this collection, this book was published just after the war. I now have the book in three languages, including English. This paperbound version has a loosening spine. This ...
(Alb. Cammermeyers Forlag Lars Swanstrøm, 1918)
I think this book is actually worth the high price I paid for it! It is altogether well made. Though it is in a larger format (about 7½ x 10½), the illustration style reminds me of the work of Richard Heighway. The two ...
Here is a good printing of Rackham's black-and-white art after a T of C. 154 pages. I now have Rackham's work published in the following languages: English, Swedish, Modern Greek, German, Spanish, French, Russian, Hebrew, ...
