The Fables of Aesop: Selected, told anew and their history traced
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1894)
"This small edition (4½" x 6") edition shares several curious features with the other six like it in format but perhaps a half inch taller: Caldwell 1894/1900? (red roses against a gold background on cover); Caldwell ...
(Cassell & Company, 1893)
I thought I was buying a second copy of a book I already had found. Wrong again! This book is, it is true, remarkably similar to one purchased in August of 2003 from Ross Old Books & Prints, Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire. ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Macmillan Company, 1894)
A reprint of the 1894 edition, with a colored frontispiece of FC. Otherwise apparently a standard reprinting.
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895)
This book compares most closely with my 1896 Aesop's Fables from Donohue, Henneberry, and Company. See my comments there. This book has a strange first page with four rabbits around a cartoon of grandpa kicking a football. ...
Deux Cents Fables Choisies d'Ésope avec Notes et Lexique
(Imprimerie de l'Orphelinat, 1892)
Édition Classique. This paperbound textbook presents two-hundred fables on 102 pages. The organization comes from the book's rapport with Les Éléments de Grammaire Grecque by M.M. Roersch et Thomas. The back cover has ...
(Cassell & Company Ltd.,, 1893)
The illustrations are good, though not quite as good as in the Swedish edition I found earlier this summer. There is a list of illustrations on xi, and an AI at the back. A note at the end of the preface mentions that ...
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.
The Fables of Aesop
(The Macmillan Co., 1894)
Identical with the 1929 printing of the 1894 edition except for the gaudy coloring of the frontispiece (a red fox and yellow grass!), the thick cheap paper, and the notation on the back of the title page that there was a ...
(New York Publishing Company, 1895)
This book has identical plates with the American News edition (1885?) without Krilof's fables. This book has an embossed maroon cloth cover, much thicker pages than that edition, and pages gilt at the top. Can the plates ...
Fables of Aesop and Others with Instructive Applications.
(James Miller, 1890)
See my notes on the earlier copy of this book (1865). 248 fables in a lovely 7 by 4.5 book with embossed green covers and a gold-embossed spine. Advertisements at the front and back for all sorts of things, including ...
