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.
A Type Specimen of Lutetia: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, Printer, 1970)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically Lutetia 12D Roman and Italic, 14D Roman and Italic, and 16D Roman.. Good woodblock illustrations ...
A Type Specimen of Baskerville: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, 1971)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically 12 point Roman, Bold, and Italic and 8 point, 10 point, and 12 point Roman with Italic. Wonderful, ...
Aesop's Fables (Cover: Classics to Grow on)
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1964)
See my 1964 Aesop's Fables in the Keepworthy Classics series. This seems to be the very same book, perhaps with superficial changes like a name in the series. See my comments there, and check the particulars of the two ...
(Rand McNally & Company, 1972)
This may be my first flip out book, in which a two-page spread includes a page that folds out to make a triptych. The pages are well matched to create two different pictures using the image on the left, one with the ...
A Type Specimen of Garamont: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, 1973)
See my two other editions from Berliner, using Lutetia (1970) and Baskerville (1971). A first page gives a lovely little history of Garamont, which was first created in 1540, only eleven years after French printing first ...
(Reading Disability Clinic, 1970)
This is a curious and delightful find. It is a landscape book about 8½ x 5½ with about half of its spiral binding intact. Another piece of the binding fell away as I was working with this book. I cannot find an indication ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
Closest to the 1901? and 1902? Lupton editions with the same title. See my comments there. Except for the title page and cover, the books seem identical. Like those, this book has no illustrations. In fact, this book ...
(Junior Literary Guild, 1933)
I was surprised to find this book. I did not know that the Artzybasheff edition was done by anyone other than Viking. Is this book actually over sixty years old? The internal book seems identical to the Viking editions. ...
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 ...
