Three Hundred and Fifty Aesop's Fables.
(J.B. Lippicott & Co.J.B. Lippincott and Co., 1884)
Mr. Kniazev saw the Georgetown magazine article, got my phone number from the university, and called to offer this book. It has been very helpful because it gave me a firm first date for this book. I have since learned ...
Fables, For the Instruction and Amusement of Little Misses and Masters: Beauties of Fables.
(Toronto Public Library, 1991)
A ten-page handout of ninety-one listings. I am sorry I missed the show and did not even know of it. How nice of Kathleen to think of me and send the catalogue! One can find further information on most of the individual ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1898)
A very nice run of Griset and Croxall. The plates are identical with those in my Aesop's Fables (1893?) by Cassell. This book, I would guess, is the inexpensive reprint of that. Only the paper (cheaper here), the title ...
(The Heritage Illustrated Bookshelf (The Heritage Press), 1941)
Almost identical with the Heritage Reprints edition. I presume now that this edition is actually a pre-war edition antedating that one. The chief distinguishing marks are a change from red here to brown there in the ...
The Children's Aesop
(Caroline House/Boyds Mills Press, 1992)
Well done! Twenty-eight fables generally given two pages apiece for the tale and the picture, with a moral clearly boxed in a different color at the end. Well told, especially for children, with morals that make sense, ...
(Alfred A. KnopfDistributed by Random House, 1992)
I have wanted a Gooden Aesop since I found his La Fontaine edition (1931) four months ago. This book does not seem to mention Gooden's 1936 limited edition of 525 copies done by George Harrap using L'Estrange's version. ...
(Lothrop Publishing Company, 1901)
I am very happy to get a copy of Rundell's version, quoted by Hobbs on 102. The Griset illustrations are well done here. Still, this book's special offering lies in the four full-color illustrations. These often render ...
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
(John B. Alden, 1883)
Again, I thought I was picking up a good second copy of a book where my first copy may have been in only fair condition. And this book is very close to one that I have listed under the same title and publisher in 1885. ...
Little Tales from Aesop
(Bairns Books Ltd., 1950)
This is a large sixteen-page landscape-formatted pamphlet with various kinds of illustrations for its thirteen fables. The most exciting are the full-page colored illustrations for FS (front cover), DLS, The Cat and the ...
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).
