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. ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1902)
Quite similar to the Arlington Edition (1899?), except for rearrangement and different spellings in titles. A note added to the editor's preface indicates the addition of 130 fables not in the first and second editions. ...
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 ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Dorset Press, 1975)
This is a clear, crisp reprinting -- with almost no margins -- of Gambit's great book of 1975. The illustrations are still wonderful! As I wrote there, this is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine ...
Aesop's Fables in Irish--Parts I to V
(The Irish Book Company, 1909)
Fifty fables and a vocabulary that stretches almost longer than the fables! Sorry. Since I cannot read this text, I do not have much more to say!
(Mitsui Fudosan, 1992)
These eleven colorful banners were hung in the lobby of 1251 Avenue of the Americas during renovations. Now this volume is dedicated to the tenants, guests, and friends for their patience and understanding during the ...
(PenguinPuffin Books, 1993)
A reprint in reduced dimensions of the lavish, beautiful first edition of 1981. Though the big format suits Holder's art better, the illustrations here are surprisingly sharp for a smaller work that is a reprint. Worth ...
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 ...
