Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange
(Dover Publications, 1967)
I have already listed versions of this book under the same date. Those copies, I noticed, have a wide price range starting at $1.50. Here is an earlier copy from Dover with a price of $1.25. A confirmation of its early ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Readers Library Publishing CompanyThe Readers Library Publishing Co., Ltd, 1932)
Here is a strange find from a strange place. I had presumed for a long time that this was a duplicate of a book I already had. Closer inspection seems to indicate otherwise. It has an unusual colored pictorial cover of ...
The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange.
(A.L. Burt Company, 1910)
Compared to an adjacent listing from the same publisher, this edition has a different spine layout, cover color (red, not green), series, and frontispiece (WC from Billinghurst, unacknowledged). As does that other Burt ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1901)
This edition stands out from others by Griset from McLoughlin in that it gives its own date (on a rock in the cover illustration). It has the lovely colored TMCM frontispiece one can find in both 1900? editions from ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(John Lane the Bodley Head Ltd., 1898)
A beautiful book, distinguished from the next (1924) edition by this edition's brown board covers embossed with animal figures. The illustrations seem quite sharp.
(W.B. Conkey, 1930)

The Fables of Aesop.
(A.L. Burt, 1900)
A wonderfully curious gift. As Tom points out, the book starts with a nice cover design modelled on Heighway's The Fisher and the Little Fish (116) with the addition of a background including modern ships. Adding ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Dodd Mead and Company,London: John Lane the Bodley Head/NY: Dodd, Mead, 1898)
A beautiful book, though the illustrations do not come out with first-rate clarity. L'Estrange's versions are often succinct.
(Homewood Publishing Company, 1930)
A curious melange. The text appears to be identical with that in Cassell's Aesop's Fables (1893/1893?) illustrated by Griset and in Hurst's The Book of Fables (1899?), also illustrated by Griset. The author, unacknowledged ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F. M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1901)
Identical plates with the edition by the same publisher that I have listed under 1902?. This edition has a different cover and different paper; it also lists an address for the Lupton Publishing Company. This book ...
