Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...
Hundert Fabeln mit hundert Bildern von Grandville
(Verlag von Carl J. Klemann, 1880)
"This book is surprising in many ways. First, it is not what one usually finds in a book titled "Fifty" or "One Hundred" fables. Those are commonly Speckter and Hey's collection of pedagogical verse. The next surprise ...
Aesop's Fables for Little Readers
(T. Fisher Unwin, 1880)
"Here is a book internally identical with another in the collection. Where that book has a blue cloth cover, this book has a red cloth cover. As I wrote then, there seems to be no indication in this book of when this ...
One by One: A Child's Book of Tales and Fables, With Fifty Illustrations
(George Routledge and Sons, 1880)
"This book is identical with another in the collection except that this cover is green cloth embossed with gold, while that book has a red cloth cover embossed with gold. Let me repeat what I wrote there. Here are ...
Fables de La Fontaine: Édition annotée a l'usage de la jeunesse
(Theodore Lefevre et Cie Éditeurs,Théodore Lefèvre & Cie, Éditeurs, 1881)
This book is very close to another that I have listed under 1881? I identified it there with Bodemann #339.1. This copy seems identical except for two and possibly three factors. As for similarities, it has the same red ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables [On cover: Select Fables.]
(Pictorial Literature Society, 1884)
This book is almost identical with one already listed under this date and publisher. See my comments there. How is it different? It has lost the loose endpapers at both ends matching the inside front and back covers, ...
The Book of Fables Chiefly from Aesop
(Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company/Cambridge: The Riverside Press, 1882)
I must stop buying this book! I bought this one on a hurried trip through the airport because it is in such excellent condition. See my comments on the various other printings of this book. Stedman's Victorian Poets is ...
The Fables of Florian
(John B. Alden, 1888)
T of C at the beginning. Fifty-one fables, preceded by a useful introduction to Florian (1755-94). Two Travellers (14) is often presented as Aesopic. Grandville's illustrations are always wonderful. One of the best ...
The Fables of Aesop as first pr Vol I
(David Nutt, 1889)
Almost no illustrations. Helpful for deciphering Caxton's English. The two volumes from William Allen were early finds, and I have watched them deteriorate on the shelf for thirteen years. How nice now to find a set in ...
The Fables of Aesop as first p Vol II
(David Nutt, 1889)
Contains a good transcription into more readable text of Caxton's version. Helpful for deciphering Caxton's English. The Ryland frontispiece-engraving of Aesop as a shepherd is otherwise unknown to me.
