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. ...
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).
Aesop's Fables Part I.
(Educational Publishing Company, 1894)
This is a reproduction of the first nine fables of Aesop's Fables (1892) by the same author and publisher. Notice that Aesop represents the first material for the first grade in the five cent classics advertised inside ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(A.L. Burt Company Publ.,, 1895)
Two things distinguish this little book: its monosyllables and the mix of drawings. Besides the majority of them, which are taken from Percy Billinghurst, there are several in a different medium and style, most of which ...
(Donohue Henneberry & Co.,, 1896)
This large-format book may be the best example in my collection of eclecticism and borrowing of established illustrations in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century book publishing. At least three great Aesopic ...
Esops Fabler Fritt Berattade efter LaFontaine, Rundell, Binder M. Fl.
(C & E. Gernandts For̈lags-AktiebolagC. & E. Gernandts Forlags-Aktiebolag, 1895)
A beautiful book with a surprising number of Griset illustrations, which seem to be of two types (see 99 for the two types on one page.) These etchings are done in different colors. Notice the three wolves jumping for ...
Aesop's Fables, Vol. I
(Educational Publishing Company, 1892)
Standard except for the illustration and event finishing the FG on 10: the grapes smile and laugh! The Bull and the Gnat becomes The Horse and the Fly. Helpful introduction: both boys and girls like Aesop; ...
The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 Volume I
(David Nutt, 1889)
I had noted this book sitting on Midway's shelf for years. I once recommended it to the Heffelfinger collection in Minneapolis. I never realized that it was Joseph Jacobs' own copy. I am now especially delighted to add ...
Aesop's Fables, Chiefly from Original
(The Ariel Booklets. NY: The Knickerbocker Press: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1848)
This edition shares identical text and engravings with many others, but in a lovely little leather-bound book with gold leaf and better reproductions. The illustrations are the same but the text, while identical, is set ...
The Fables of Aesop as first pr Vol I
(David Nutt, 1889)
Almost no illustrations. Helpful for deciphering Caxton's English. The two volumes from William Allen were early finds, and I have watched them deteriorate on the shelf for thirteen years. How nice now to find a set in ...
