Uncut pages. See my comment on the first edition in 1927. This is a helpful bilingual edition. And I remember fondly Victoria and its owner.
Les Subtiles Fables D'Esope, Lyon Mathieu Husz, 1486
(Association Guillaume le Roy, Lyon/Charles Eggimann, ParisC. Eggimann seul dépositaire,, 1926)
Here is an unusual piece of work. It is unstitched as issued and mostly unopened. Its paper covers are torn at the spine. After the colored frontispiece (from a 13th-century Lyon Isopet manuscript), there are 208 ...
(Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd, 1925)
Here is a thirty-two page pamphlet that I had not found for years and then found twice within one week. It features twelve full-page colored illustrations signed something like Abbé or Alli. It also includes frequent ...
The Fables of Aesop with 75 Illustrations (Cover: Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated)
(Homewood Publishing Co., 1920)
I am proud and delighted that I was able to find two parallels for this strange book. In fact, it uses the same plates as an edition by W.B. Conkey that I have also assigned to 1920? The cover of that book featured a ...
The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange.
(A.L. Burt Company, 1920)
This book is interiorly identical with another copy done by Burt for which I have guessed the same year of publication. This copy has a distinctive white cover picturing FS. Like other Burt editions, it adds Heighway's ...
Fables from Aesop
(Blackie & Son Ltd., 1920)
This is a book I almost missed. It looks familiar. Even after I received it, I thought it must be a copy of something I already have. Its front cover features a pasted colored illustration of a peacock with a crane ...
Aesop A Thainig Go h-Eirinn
(Brun Agus O Nuallain, TeorBrún agus Ó Nualláin, 1920)
Some ninety-four fables in this book of 138 pages with a bright red cloth cover showing BW in white. There are delightful little black-and-white illustrations, like that for the battling frog and mouse on 35; one hardly ...
Aesop A Thainig Go h-Eirinn Cnuasach A II
(The Irish Book Company, 1921)
I found this book at the same time that I found a book that is probably contemporary from a different publisher but also presenting fables in Gaelic. I have that other book, Aesop A Thainig Go h-Eirinn, also by Peadar Ua ...
The Fox and the Stork
(John F. Shaw & CompanyJohn F. Shaw & Co. Ltd.,, 1920)
The cover adds an explanatory phrase to the title: Stories from Aesop. The book was apparently once given to Jean Blakeley from Zion Methodist Sunday School in Bradford. There are twenty fables reproduced on very heavy ...
Aesop's Fables (with 30 colour plates)
(Ward, Lock & Co., Ltd., 1924)
I thought I had exhausted Ward and Lock's publications of Rountree's work with the editions that included forty-eight and sixteen illustrations, respectively. Wrong again! I have compared this work with the one containing ...
