Fabler af Aesop ved Christian Winther
(P.G. Philipsens Forlag, 1859)
This book represents one of the nicer finds in my visit to Scandinavia. It is the kind of book I expected to find more of--and in fact have found more of on the web after the visit. It offers 203 fables on 155 pages, ...

The opening of this weekly magazine for Saturday, April 2, 1836, offers a large black-and-white illustration of WC and then argues that the result of observation may be applied in a practical manner as a guide in actual ...
The Favourite Book of Fables, With Numerous Illustrations
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1891)
This book is identical with the 1890 (first?) edition, except for the changed date on the title-page. I am especially delighted to find it because my copy of the 1890 edition has two torn pages, and this copy is in good ...
The Book of Fables
(Sheldon Blakeman & Co.,, 1850)
This little (5½x almost 4½) volume answers a question raised earlier by a volume with the same bibliographical information. That book consisted of conundrums, and I wondered if the printer made a mistake. This little ...
Aesop's Fables Complete
(J.B. Lippincott and Co., 1866)
With this book, there are now three identical books in the collection. Lippincott changes the year of publication on the title-page with each succeeding year, and so Lippincott's editions of 1858, 1866 here, and 1868 are ...
Favourite Fables and Stories About Animals, containing: The Favourite Book of Fables and Favourite Stories about Animals
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1894)
The first of the two books combined here I have already had. It is a lovely little book of 117 fables with a mix of illustrators and illustration styles. As I write there, I think I can detect four different styles and, ...
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 ...
Little Fables for Little Folks
(The Religious Tract Society, 1865)
This is an eighteen-page large format toy book printed by Kronheim & Company in London. Actually, six of the pages are chromolithograph inserts printed on only one side. Even the text-pages are printed on only one side. ...
Les Fables d'Ésope, mis en Français, Avec le sens moral, en quatre vers, à chaque Fable. Tome Premier
(Chez Billois, 1801)
Dédiée à la Jeunesse. Note that I have only the first volume. Not in Bodemann. A charming little book, not least for its few but lovely illustrations. After a word to youth, there is Planudes' life of Aesop, embellished ...
(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.
