Babrii Fabulae Aesopeae
(in aedibus B. G. Teubneri, 1897)
Accedunt fabularum dactylicarum et iambicarum reliquiae. Ignatii et aliorum tetrasticha iambica recensita a Carolo Friderico Mueller. I am surprised that I had not found this book earlier. It is a Teubner text in the ...
Book 1: Fables and Rhymes: Aesop and Mother Goose
(American Book Company, 1898)
It seems that this schoolbook has eluded me until now. Thirty-three fables are mixed in among the fifty-one stories here on 96 pages. They receive illustrations of various sorts. Several are signed B.C. and others L.F.P. ...
Die Fabeln Gerhards von Minden in mittelniederdeutscher Sprache
(Max Niemeyer/Georg Olms Verlag, 1898)
Around 1270 Gerhard wrote one-hundred-twenty-five fables that were (among?) the first middle Low German fables. They seem to be known best as the Wolfenbüttler Aesop since it is in Wolfenbüttle that a paper manuscript of ...
The Fables of Aesop with a Life of the Author.
(John W. Lovell Company, 1895)
Herrick's illustrations for Aesop were much reproduced, it seems to me. This is one of three different versions of the Oxford Edition that presents his designs, one each for one-hundred-and-ten fables. All these editions ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Schocken Books, 1894)
In 1966 Schocken published both hardbound and paperback editions of the Aesop by Jacobs and Heighway. It keeps as its cover illustration the picture from the hardbound dust-jacket: the dog loses his piece of meat into the ...
Aesop's Fables, Book 1
Here is a happy occurrence. I could find almost no bibliographical information in this 8 x 11 pamphlet--except the name of one visual artist, J. Burton. I could also see from the information I had that I would face a ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(Hurst & Co. Publishers,, 1899)
After 140 pages of Aesop, there are Later Fables in the last 100 pages of the book. Compare the two copies to see how much more clearly Griset's work emerges in the blue-covered volume. Good AI. The Stutzman copy ...
The Second Reader
(Scott Foresman and Co.,, 1899)
A good example of late-nineteenth-century unacknowledged use of Aesop in a textbook for early grades. Five fables, none with illustrations.
(Donohue Henneberry & Co.,, 1896)
This large-format book may be the best example in my collection of eclecticism and borrowing of established illustrations in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century book publishing. At least three great Aesopic ...
School Reading by Grades: First Year
(American Book Company, 1897)
Three fables are included in this beginning reader: GA (62), BW (106), and FG (114). Several colored illustrations and many black-and-white throughout, some charming and some (like those of children's faces) grotesque.
