Fables in Song
(James R. Osgood and Company, 1874)
I already have a copy of this book, found in 1989. This copy adds a final page of advertisements for Meredith's works after the last page of poetry. As I mentioned a propos of the other copy, song here is poetry, and I ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1874)
This seems to be the earliest Girardet edition I have published by Mame. The edition seems to have begun in 1857 and to have been reprinted with a few corrections in 1860. Bodemann's next edition in this item is 1878. ...
Las Fábulas de Esopo con las de Samaniego y de Iriarte.
(Libraria de J. y A. BastinosLibreria de Juan y Antonio Bastinos, 1875)
This little book of 316 fables is fascinating for its selection of fables to include from its three fabulists. As far as I can tell from the prologue, it leaves out some of Aesop's fables as unsuitable for cultivated ...
Fables Illustrated by Stories from Real Life: Self-Reliance
(T. Nelson and Sons, 1874)
This booklet of 31 pages is presumably exactly equivalent to one section of the larger work, Fables Illustrated by Stories from Real Life: First Series, published by Nelson in 1875. Only the page numbers are changed. ...
Select Fables from La Fontaine
(Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1871)
I had not been aware that there was a classic Monvel in English. A real find! Hobbs (108) tells the story that Crane had submitted a fable book to the SPCK, which rejected it and created this import.
The Kingdom of Mother Goose
The subtitle of this forty-eight page pamphlet is A New Fairy Play for Vestry and School Entertainments with Appropriate and Easy Music for Young Voices. Also Original Recitations, Music, Motion Songs, &c., for School ...
The Christian Aesop: Ancient Fables Teaching Eternal Truths
(Burns, Oates, and Company/Premier BooksKessinger Publishing, 1871)
Here is the hardbound version of the print-upon-order paperback I had found a year earlier. This book is a delightful find that I just looked at in a Kripke Conference paper. For each of fifty fables, Anderdon adds to ...
Neue Fibel oder Erstes Lesebuch für die deutschen katholischen Schulen in den Vereinigten Staaten von Nord-Amerika.
(Benziger Brothers, 1872)
This book received plenty of use! Many pages are torn; 9-10 and 23-24 are missing. Among the Lesestücke is Das Bienchen und die Taube in verse (#14 on 56). There is a page each of advertisements for Benziger ...
La Fontaine. fables choisies pour les enfants
(E. Plon-Nourrit et CiePlon-Nourrit & Cie., 1871)
In cataloguing probable first editions of this book, I noticed a difference in both title-pages and covers. The publisher's name is lacking on the title page of those copies, which I have listed under 1871, while both of ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(James Miller, 1879)
This book largely replicates the first edition of Godolphin's book by James Miller in 1869. See my comments there. Some things have changed. Miller's address has changed from 647 to 799 Broadway. The cover has changed ...
