(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1900)
This book seems to be a surprising congeries of elements from other editions. The front cover has the same central illustration of WC that was used by Donohue on its 1892? edition, which also contains the same apostrophe-less ...
Les Fables d'Ésope
(Garnier FréresLibrairie Garnier Frères, 1905)
Here is a translation of 426 fables, some with clearly marked variants. This text is based on Halm's 1901 edition of the fables. There are 333 pages and an AI.
(The Paine Publishing Company, 1908)
This pamphlet seems to be a later printing of one I have listed already, with the same bibliographical information, under 1908. The cover here is simpler. Without any color, it shows a running child. Now all of the ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Hodder & Stoughton, 1909)
First published in 1909 by Hodder and Stoughton. This edition ©1981 by Hodder and Stoughton. Illustrations separately printed and pasted in with protective sheets. A much nicer edition than the Crown edition (1985). ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Distributed by Random HouseGramercy Books, 1909)
By contrast with my other versions of Detmold's work, this edition has some 174 pages, since the twenty-three illustrations are numbered pages. A quick check suggests that the print plates are still the same, however. I ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(Saalfield Publishing Company, 1905)
This book represents the third publisher to use Godolphin's texts; see 1885 and 1895. This book uses many good illustrations done after Weir and four (59, 81, 85, and 88) after Griset. There is no frontispiece or title-page ...
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 ...
Aesop's Fables Told in Easy Words
(London: George Routledge/NY: E.P. Dutton/Toronto: The Musson Book Company, 1900)
This book reproduces with hard boards and a blue cloth spine the soft-covered printing I have under the same date by the same publisher. Like it, the cover's title is Aesop's Fables, while the title-page has Aesop's Fables ...
Skeealyn Aesop: A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(S.K. Broadbent/Kessinger Publishing, 1901)
This book reprints a book of bilingual fables along with poems by Edward Farquhar of Cregneish. There is nothing in this book that was not in the original, I believe, except for three things: the covers with their simple ...
(Platt & Peck Co., 1905)
A curious reprinting of the Moffat original of 1905. See that entry for comment and this for contrasts. Rackham's TH is on the cover here, without acknowledgement. Townsend is no longer mentioned. The list of illustrations ...
