Esops Fabler Fritt Berattade efter LaFontaine, Rundell, Binder M. Fl.
(C & E. Gernandts For̈lags-AktiebolagC. & E. Gernandts Forlags-Aktiebolag, 1895)
A beautiful book with a surprising number of Griset illustrations, which seem to be of two types (see 99 for the two types on one page.) These etchings are done in different colors. Notice the three wolves jumping for ...
The Fables of Aesop with a Life of the Author.
(John W. Lovell Co., 1865)
One illustration per story, noble rather than imaginative. The applications are often longer than the fables!
Aesop's Fables Together with the Life of Aesop.
(Rand McNally, 1897)
This was one of the first books in my collection. I have come back to look at it again after reviewing a number of Dodsley editions, including the first in 1761 and Crukshank's in 1798. See my comments on those two books. ...
Uncle Frank's Select Fables for Good Boys and Girls II: The Thief and the Dog.
(Wm. H. Murphy printer and publisher, Franklin Bookstore, 384 Pearl Street,, 1851)
Second of six volumes, with pages numbered consecutively (here 35-68). Twenty-five fables. The organizing principle seems to be the illustration on every right hand page. Small fables are filled in to complete the ...
Uncle Frank's Select Fables for Good Boys and Girls III: The Fir and the Bramble.
(Wm. H. Murphy, 1851)
Third of six volumes, with pages numbered consecutively (here 69-102). Twenty-five fables. Here we have The Dove and the Bee (99) instead of The Ant and the Pigeon. The organizing principle seems to be the ...
(Robert B. Collins, 1848)
Each of these seems a larger edition of my 1848/48? edition by a firm that somehow either included or excluded a brother! The address is also changed. The red and black covers of these beautiful books add gold to the ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(H.M. Caldwell Company, 1885)
This is a strange book. Its closest relative is Three Hundred Aesop's Fables and One Hundred Picture Fables (1885?). But this edition's title page does not acknowledge the presence of the second book. It does reproduce ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Mayflower Books, 1894)
I continue to find various reprints of this great book. This book brings to nine the number of different formats in which I have this work. This edition is very nicely done for $5.95. The illustrations are clear. The ...
The Fables of Aesop: Altemus' Young P
(Henry Altemus, 1899)
Compiled is right! The illustrators in this small, squarish book include Billinghurst, Weir, and Tenniel. The texts come from James and others. The fascinating advertisements for books at the back allow, I believe, ...
(M.A. Donohue & Company, 1885)
Identical with the first 184 pages of the edition I have listed under 1885?. This edition presents an unusual example of one book created by cutting off another. The engravings are very inky. The spine is falling ...
