Book of Fables Illustrated by Facts from Real Life
(T. Nelson and Sons, 1853)
Here is a curious book. It uses exactly the same texts for the same fables in another book by the same author, "Gems from Fable-Land: A Collection of Fables Illustrated by Facts," published in New York in the same year ...
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 ...
Fables in Verse
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)
"Twenty-six years ago I bought a first copy of this book at Renaissance in Milwaukee. Here is a second copy in poorer condition. It has the same printer's error listed below. I keep it in the collection because it is a ...
Fables Original and Selected
(Willoughby & Co., 1842)
This somewhat-the-worse-for-wear book represents a real find on Jerry's part. It uses exactly the same plates as my fancy hand-colored 1842 edition. So it has the same 497 fables from some thirty-two fabulists, named ...
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 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.
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. Complete, with text based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. With Copious Additions from other Modern Authors
(National Library Association, 1883)
This book is bibliographically almost a perfect match for one I have listed under 1883, published by John B. Alden in New York. Let me list their differences. This book has the same size page, but is almost twice as ...
Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists in Three Books. Ancient, Modern, and Original
(S. Fisher, 1802)
According to Bodemann, the text makeup of this book is the same as in the origianal 1761 edition with the exception of A New Life of Aesop. Osborne and Mozley in London had apparently issued a new edition in 1800, and ...
