(Exeter Books, 1924)
Surprisingly good runs of the reproductions of Rountree's work. This book is closest to the sixteen-illustration edition of 1924? As is typical of Exeter, there is no introductory or bibliographical material.
(John C. Winston, 1928)
This book is almost exactly identical with another found at Brattle Books. The only difference between the two copies is the series listing on the back of the title page: that book shows The Child's Garden of Charming ...
Aesop's Fables (with 16 colour plates and 8 sepia illustrations)
(Ward Lock & Co., Limited,, 1924)
I happened to notice this book on an ABE listing and did not remember the sepia illustrations. So I checked my book and saw that it seemed otherwise identical to the one being offered but had no sepia illustrations. Now ...
Aesop's Fables with Compliments of Chelmsford Ginger Ale
(Chelmsford Ginger Ale; Brown & Bigelow, 1926)
This little booklet of sixteen pages answers some questions and raises others. It offers seven spreads of a full-page picture on the left and a text on the right. Before that, there is a cover showing a fox dressed as a ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(The Saalfield Publishing Company., 1925)
This book reproduces the one I have listed under 1905? from the same publisher with the same title. Thus it has 92 pages and includes four illustrations after Griset as well as many done after Weir. The cover here is red ...

(Albert Whitman, 1925)
Here is a singular find. I had never seen this book before, and I cannot find it mentioned in Hobbs, Quinnam, or Lindseth. I checked for a formulaic text adapted from LaFontaine and Croxall identified as this book's ...
Aesop's Fables (TH on cover)
(The Children's Press, 1922)
This is one of two thinner editions that present portions of the above book. The pages here are like cardboard: thick and blottery. No T of C, index, or pagination. Thirty-three fables. Rountree's work is typically ...
The Fables of Aesop

The text is taken from L'Estrange's 1692 edition. The book presents 201 fables, with twelve of Fiennes' wood engravings plus a cockerel on the colophon page (after 94). The wood-engravings are: CJ (1), FK (11, one of ...
(J.H. Sears & Company, 1920)
This little book brims with questions. First, do I not recognize these covers of a boy and girl, respectively, reading? Next, how does this text expand the usual set of texts derived from Rundell (sometimes labelled ...
The Fox and the Wolf: Stories from Aesop
(John F. Shaw & Co., Ltd., 1920)
The covers of this typical early twentieth-century British children's fable book are pictorial boards, and both are well done. On the front, the fox runs from the well where, presumably, he has left the wolf; on the back, ...
