Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(The World Publishing Co., 1910)
"There is already a copy of this book in the collection, found in 1992. Now some 33 years later, I have found a copy in better condition with a dust jacket. It is hard to believe that the book was printed as early as ...
Five Funny Fables and how to play them
(A. & C. Black Ltd.,, 1919)
Five dramas. Good encouragement to adapt is built right into the first story, FG. FC is nicely elaborated. FS includes both Mr. and Mrs. Stork; the fox gets his muzzle caught in the pot. How a Bear and a Man became ...
The Fables of Aesop Selected and Told Anew
(DeWolfe Fiske & Co.,, 1910)
Here is yet another reprinting of Jacobs and Heighway. This book (5¼ x 6¾) adds several features that I think I have not yet found in a Jacobs/Heighway edition. First it uses the curious phrase Profusely Illustrated on ...

(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1910)
This book with Arthur Cooke's colored illustration of LM in a circle on its red cover is only my second Ward, Lock publication of Weir's work. It is smaller in format and thinner in inches but not in page count than that ...
(Avenel Books: Crown Publishing Co., 1912)
T of C and list of illustrations. Many fables! The T of C goes on at length! The black-and-white illustrations are well done, but the colored are not well presented here. They look a bit drab.
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1910)
Here is yet another variation in a book I have already in three other forms, listed under 1900?. This copy has a simple brown cloth cover and spine without illustration. Both cover and spine read simply Aesop's Fables. ...
Aesop's Fables, with 100 Illustrations
(J.B. Lippincott, 1916)
At last I am delighted to get back to a first edition of this important work. Mary Keane's gift of a second edition (1916/17) got me going; see my comments there. In fact, I had just finished an extensive review of that ...
