(Ward Lock & Co., Limited,, 1920)
Here is a fragile book of 256 pages. As the opening T of C shows, there are 58 fables. This is the only non-illustrated edition I have of Blanche Winder's work. Normally her texts are associated with the visual work of ...
Die erneuerten Aesopischen Fabeln nebst den hiezu geeigneten Lehren zusammengetragen zum wahren Nutzen und unterhaltenden Vergnuegen
This is one of my favorite books in the collection, since it offers the twenty hand-colored illustrations similar to or identical with Steinhoewel's original Ulm edition. Some of the most dramatic of the twenty are: WS ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Books Inc.,, 1925)
Printed from the same plates as my 1930? edition. See the description there. Their differences touch the cute dust-jacket (Aesop's Fables), the pre-title page ( Aesop's Fables 251 Series ), the title page (publisher ...
(G. Bell and Sons Ltd.,, 1925)
This is a slightly changed reprinting of the original from 1913. Like it, it is a clean copy with good illustrations. The changes come in two areas. I will describe them and then include the pertinent remarks from that ...
Aesop's Fables (TH on cover)
(The Children's Press, 1922)
This book is very close to another that I have, but it also shows tantalizing differences. The most obvious is that the back cover (and the back dust jacket) advertise not Nestlé's milk but rather its competitor Ovaltine! ...

This little booklet of sixteen pages answers some questions and raises others. It offers seven spreads of a full-page picture on the left and a text on the right. Before that, there is a cover showing a fox dressed as a ...
Aesop's Fables (with 16 colour plates and 8 sepia illustrations)
(Ward Lock & Co., Limited,, 1924)
I happened to notice this book on an ABE listing and did not remember the sepia illustrations. So I checked my book and saw that it seemed otherwise identical to the one being offered but had no sepia illustrations. Now ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(The Saalfield Publishing Company., 1925)
This book reproduces the one I have listed under 1905? from the same publisher with the same title. Thus it has 92 pages and includes four illustrations after Griset as well as many done after Weir. The cover here is red ...
The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange.
(A.L. Burt Company, 1920)
Already one of my favorite books because of the hand-colored illustrations. Also it takes the JBR text used with so many other illustrators. A lovely book! See the adjacent Burt edition of same year and title for ...
The Herford Aesop: Fifty Fables in Verse.
(Boston: LeRoy Phillips, Publisher/Boston: Ginn and Co: Athenaeum Press, 1921)
The verse seems good. Several of the illustrations catch hold of the reader: the exploding frog (19), the lion having eaten a man (21), and the crane with a bill in his bill (81).
