Fables in Slang and More Fables in Slang
(Dover Publications, 1899)
This republication of Ade's first two fable books (actually published in 1899 and 1900) is highlighted by Bleiler's excellent introduction. All the fables but one are reprinted, and apparently almost all the illustrations ...
Longmans' Ship Literary Readers: Book I.
(Longmans Green, and Co.,, 1898)
A very nice first reader in very good shape. There are five fables with good simple illustrations, especially The Farmer and the Donkey (7), The Cats That Went to Law (28), and The Silly Frog (34). The farmer ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Frederick Warne & Co., Kronheim & Co., 1895)
This is a very large (10½ x 9) pamphlet whose binding has been stitched. The backs of both text and illustration pages are not printed. Six magnificent full-page Kronheim chromolithographs grace these pages. A long story ...
Aesop's Fables (Inside: Old Fables in a New Dress)
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1890)
This book has the same title, the same inside title, and the same contents as another book in the collection. What is different in this perhaps earlier publication is fourfold. First, the cover picture is not FC with a ...

The Fables of Aesop
Here is an extra copy of the 1945 printing of this book. This book has strong similarities to the first printing in its lovely black vine-and-leaf pattern stamped onto its red cover (but not spine). This edition lacks ...
Oeuvres de Florian: Les Fables
(Collection des Grands Classiques Français et Étrangers, 1890)
This is an extra copy of this book. The book is identical with another I have listed under the same date but edité spécialement pour les Magasins du Bon Marché. Perhaps the same publisher made the book for both agencies. ...
Les Fabulistes Latins, Tome 4
(Burt Franklin, 1893)
This fourth volume is given to Odo and his imitators. There is a helpful alphabetical list of the surprisingly large number of stories in this volume on 451-63, just before the T of C.
Les Fabulistes Latins, Tome 3
(Burt Franklin, 1893)
This volume on Avianus divides roughly into halves. The first is an introduction to the man and to manuscripts and editions for both him and his imitators. The second half, beginning on 261, presents the fables themselves, ...
