The Fables of Aesop: Selected, told anew and their history traced by Joseph Jacobs
(Godfrey Cave Associates, 1979)
The original of this book was published in 1894 by Macmillan. It has been reprinted quite often, for example by Schocken. This is the best facsimile reprint I have seen. Heighway's brilliant black-and-white work comes ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop/Nonsense Alphabets.
(Grolier Society, 1967)
This book is identical (in larger format with enlarged and relatively good illustrations) with the Avenel edition (1967?) of the same name, except that it also contains Edward Lear's Nonsense Alphabets upside down and going ...
Best Loved Fables of Aesop
(Grolier Society, 1967)
Identical with the Crown/Avenel hardbound book (1967?). I have copies with both a blue-on-white front cover and -- in summer of 1989 for $3 -- a white-on-blue front cover.
The Fables of Aesop: Selected, Told Anew and Their History Traced by Joseph Jacobs.
Meg got this for me from her Berkeley High library. I love any illustrations that Levine does; the added spice here is that he later (1975) turned his hand to a fuller illustration. One can trace the genesis of some of ...
The Fables of Aesop Selected and Told Anew
(DeWolfe Fiske & Co.,, 1910)
Here is yet another reprinting of Jacobs and Heighway. This book (5¼ x 6¾) adds several features that I think I have not yet found in a Jacobs/Heighway edition. First it uses the curious phrase Profusely Illustrated on ...
The Fables of Aesop, Selected, Told Anew and Their History Traced
(Albert Whitman & Co., 1920)
By my best count, this is the seventeenth version I have of Heighway and Jacobs' work. This is a simple and smaller book than many (4½ x 6¾). It acknowledges neither Jacobs nor Heighway, but it does have J.J. as the ...
Aesop's Fables: Selected and Told Anew by Joseph Jacobs
(Capricorn Press, 1984)
This is a fresh rendition of MacMillan's 1964 edition of Jacobs and Levine. Clifton Fadiman's essay from that edition has dropped. So has the portion of the title that claimed a tracing of the fables' history. Added are ...
The Fables of Aesop
(The Book League of America, 1929)
This book duplicates and recognizes MacMillan's printings -- some fourteen of them -- between 1894 and 1929. It lacks the typical frontispiece of FS. The cover is red cloth with a simple printer's design on the front. ...
The Fables of Aesop (Hebrew)
(Maḥbarot le-sifrutMehaverot Lesifrut, 1996)
This large-format (8¼ x 11) book not only reproduces Jacobs' edition, with its eighty-two numbered fables. It expands the size of each of Heighway's illustrations, and so makes an excellent source for photographing them. ...
Listen to Mr. Aesop
(J.C. Funk, 1924)
This pamphlet is fascinating not only as a period piece that advertises the Oakland automobile and uses phone numbers that are anywhere between two and five digits long. It also is fascinating for the way it matches an ...
