The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 with those of Avian, Alfonso, and Poggio, now again edited and induced by Joseph Jacobs.
(Burt Franklin, 1889)
The Same as Volume 1 of the David Nutt entry. Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). I am eager to try some of Jacobs' scholarship. There is a wonderful pedigree of Caxton's Aesop facing 1.
Child's Own Fable Book
(Leavitt and Allen, 1860)
This fat little book includes two parts: Aesop's Fables (I) and Fables (II). It is an earlier (even first?) edition of a work I had found earlier and have listed under 1870? This work, like that, will delight those ...
Child's Own Fable Book
(Leavitt & Allen, 1870)
This fat little book will delight those tracking fable publication. A frontispiece from Weir introduces a book with Thomas James' 1848 introduction placed (Theddington Vicarage) but not signed. James' 203 fables in I ...
(McLoughlin Brothers Publishers, 1880)
A favorite. The miller and his son shoulder the ass. Six pages of square colored pictures; some colors miss slightly. The verse text (British?) is sometimes at odds with the (American) illustrations, as when the mice ...
De Nieuwe Aesopus. Groot Fabelboek voor Jong en Oud.
(J.B. Wolters, 1880)
Beautiful and copious Griset work, though some turns out dark even in so careful an edition. There seem to be three different kinds of Griset engravings. The fables come from various authors. Curiosities include eyeglasses, ...
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. ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(Hurst & Co. Publishers,, 1899)
After 140 pages of Aesop, there are Later Fables in the last 100 pages of the book. Compare the two copies to see how much more clearly Griset's work emerges in the blue-covered volume. Good AI. The Stutzman copy ...
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 ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables and One Hundred Picture Fables
(Donohue, HenneberryGeorge Routledge & Sons Ltd.,, 1885)
A strange combination of two books bound together. The Three Hundred portion is identical with my Routledge 1885?/1904 edition; both have 114 illustrations, though that one has different full-page illustrations. Townsend ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn and Co., 1894)
This seems to be an exact reprinting of the 1891 version, of which I have a copy. It seems also identical with the 1904 version, of which I also have a copy. Was the series' name in those versions "Classics for Children" ...
