Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...
Hundert Fabeln mit hundert Bildern von Grandville
(Verlag von Carl J. Klemann, 1880)
"This book is surprising in many ways. First, it is not what one usually finds in a book titled "Fifty" or "One Hundred" fables. Those are commonly Speckter and Hey's collection of pedagogical verse. The next surprise ...
One by One: A Child's Book of Tales and Fables, With Fifty Illustrations
(George Routledge and Sons, 1880)
"This book is identical with another in the collection except that this cover is green cloth embossed with gold, while that book has a red cloth cover embossed with gold. Let me repeat what I wrote there. Here are ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Revised Version From Original Sources.
(Syndicate Trading Company, 1884)
This book reproduces almost identically the book published the same year by William Allison Company. It has the same misspelling of Weir's name on the title-page. This book adds R. Worthington under Copyright 1884 on the ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(George Routledge & Sons, 1887)
This is a fascinating book. It presents the originals off of which Saalfield editions I have listed under 1904? and 1905? work. The page-count and layout in fact is exactly the same as in the 1904? edition, but one finds ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable Printed in the Learners' Style of Phonography, or Phonetic Shorthand
(London: Isaac Pitman & Sons/Bath: Phonetic Institute, 1888)
This is the third of the four different dated Pitman-Godolphin booklets I have found. Here the London publisher is Isaac Pitman & Sons at 1 Amen Corner, Paternoster Row, E.C. And the Bath publisher is Phonetic Institute. ...
The Baby's Own Aesop
(London and NY: George Routledge and Sons. 1981 reproduction by Holp Shuppan, Tokyo, 1887)
Wonderful pictures in a variety of color schemes and combinations. The Man That Pleased None is my favorite. The rhymed morals presume knowledge of the story.
Das zweite Milwaukeer Lesebuch : nebst praktischen Sprach- und Uebersetzungs-uebungen
(Georg Brumder, 1880)
Here is an unlikely find. This is a revised edition of a reader for students in the third through fifth years of school in Milwaukee. In the introduction, the editors tell us that they did the work on this book for free! ...
The Fables of Bidpai
(David Nutt, 1888)
It is wonderful to be able to put my hands on this first English Bidpai. The text and orthography are archaic. There is a long T of C on lxviii-lxxx. After an extensive introduction, Jacobs offers a pedigree of Bidpai ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables
(D. Lothrop and Company, 1884)
Identical with the other printing of the same year, though in better condition, except for cheaper paper, a different cover, and omissions on the title page of the publisher's address and acknowledgement of the printer. ...
