Fables of Aesop and others
(T.O.H.P. Burnham, 1863)
The engravings in the copy from Titles are especially well done. Besides the alphabetical T of C at the beginning, there is an index of subjects at the end. It refers mostly to the virtues inculcated in the longish ...
Aesop's Fables in French
(Henry HoltSchönhof & Moller, 1864)
Wonderful treasures! The advertisement following the title page claims that Aesop is the usual first book for learning French. LaFontaine is not mentioned; the French of the fables is taken from the Latin of Abbé Paul. ...
Aesop's Fables for Little Readers
(T. Fisher Unwin, 1880)
Fifty-six fables are numbered here in a book with a weak spine. Ford does sepia throughout, starting with a frontispiece of The Old Tree and the Gardener and a sepia title-page: is that Aesop telling children stories about ...
The Fables of Aesop
(©1966 Legacy Press. Ann Arbor: University Microfilms, Inc.: Xerox., 1894)
Is it not curious that this publisher would choose to go back to Jacobs and Heighway the very year that Schocken picked them up? An unidentified Legacy Library editor G.H. writes an introductory note to the reader. ...
Two Fables of Aesop With Designs on Wood
(Vagabond Press of Lloyd Whydotski, 1818)
Nice cuts of The Lion, the Tiger, and the Wolf and The Envious Man and the Covetous. A curious little book. Notice the spelling of the city in Wisconsin!
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1848)
I am adding this copy to the collection because it improves on some of the features in a copy I already have. This copy does change one feature in the book I have already catalogued: it adds Made in the United States of ...
The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 with those of Avian, Alfonso, and Poggio, now again edited and induced by Joseph Jacobs.
(Burt Franklin, 1889)
The Same as Volume 1 of the David Nutt entry. Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). I am eager to try some of Jacobs' scholarship. There is a wonderful pedigree of Caxton's Aesop facing 1.
Aesops Fables (Inside: Old Fables in a New Dress)
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1890)
The same size as my 1880 Aunt Louisa Series World-Wide Fables. I am delighted now to have a good copy. There are six brilliant full-page illustrations (and some curious retellings): FS, FG (the vineyard-owning dog appears ...
The Little Esop
(Philadelphia: Smith and Peck; New Haven: Durrie and Peck, 1844)
A wonderful little treasure. The paper is stained, but the book is otherwise in great shape. The best illustrations are The Stag and His Horns (29) and LM (45). In versions different from the usual, the mouse gets into ...
The Fables of Aesop
(World Publishing Company, 1857)
The bonanza of Bennett editions continues! This one has the 1931 copyright; the revised 1933 (not the 1931) introduction--but it is not dated, as it is in other 1933 editions; it is from a different publisher (World--as ...
