The Fables of Aesop
(Three Sirens Press on spine. NY: De Luxe Editions: Illustrated Editions Co, 1857)
Here is an extra copy of this book. I cannot get over the plethora of 1931 and 1931/33 Bennett editions! This one is identical with my 1857/1931/33 editions except for two features: both cover materials are different, ...
The Ladder to Learning: A Collection of Fables Arranged Progressively in Words of One, Two, and Three Syllables, with Original Morals
(Grant and Griffith, Successors to John Harris, 1845)
See my remarks on the fourteenth edition in 1835. What has changed here? The engravings are now labeled on the title-page as wood engravings. Grant and Griffith has succeeded to John Harris as publisher. The company-name ...
Aesop's Fables (Inside: Old Fables in a New Dress)
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1890)
This book has the same title, the same inside title, and the same contents as another book in the collection. What is different in this perhaps earlier publication is fourfold. First, the cover picture is not FC with a ...
(Porter and Coates, 1848)
Here is a second extra copy of this Alta Edition. The best runs I have seen yet of the Tenniel illustrations. It is unfortunate that there are only fifty of them here. The illustrations are listed on xvii-xviii. This ...
Uncle Frank's Select Fables for Good Boys and Girls VI: The Tortoise and the Two Crows
(Wm. H. Murphy, 1851)
The cover reads Uncle Frank's Fables for Children: The Tortoise and the Two Crows. Sixth of six volumes (listed on the back cover), with pages numbered here from 171-204. Twenty-five fables. The organizing principle ...
Uncle Frank's Select Fables for Good Boys and Girls III: The Fir and the Bramble.
(Wm. H. Murphy, 1851)
Third of six volumes, with pages numbered consecutively (here 69-102). Twenty-five fables. Here we have The Dove and the Bee (99) instead of The Ant and the Pigeon. The organizing principle seems to be the ...
Chwedlau neu Ddammegion Aesop
(Hughes and Son, 1870)
Here is an extra copy of this book with a brown, rather than green, cloth cover. What a wonderful little treasure. The first book has a frontispiece of Aesop holding a scroll sitting in the countryside surrounded by ...
A Selection of One Hundred of Perrin's Fables Accompanied with a Key
(Lea and Blanchard., 1832)
Here is a second copy of this book. This copy differs from the copy I have marked 1832/40 in very few ways: by the year on the title page, by a slightly different format on the bottom of the title page, and by the listing ...
(M.A. Donohue, 1885)
Identical with the various editions of Three Hundred and Fifty Aesop's Fables. Better paper. Better illustrations. No pages missing. Advertisements in the back. I will keep it in the collection.
Some of Aesop's Fables with Modern Instances
(MacMillan and Co., 1883)
Here is a first extra copy of two. This copy is in good condition. The engravings of Caldecott's drawings are here of course in black-and-white, and they are excellent! I just showed a number of these in class yesterday! ...
