Four revealing moments in the visual intersection of religion and fables
(Rabbi Myer and Dorothy Kripke Center, Creighton University, 2012)
(Harper & Brothers, 1927)
I had found what I thought to be a first edition of this book earlier from Greg Williams. This copy is, like that, a pictorial black cloth octavo with a colored frontispiece and three other full-page colored illustrations. ...
(Harper & Brothers, 1927)
This book is very similar to two others in the collection. All show a publication date of 1927. Like the Ten Editions book, this edition states First Edition with Louis Rhead's Pictures. Unlike either of those books, ...
(Robert B. Collins, 1848)
Here is yet a third version of what may be the first American edition of the Tenniel and James book. Earlier I had found versions with black and red embossed covers. This version has a plainer brown cloth cover. Only ...
(Dilek Matbaası, 1990)
Here is an 80-page children's paperback in very poor condition. Just enough remains of the title-page to know that it was published in Istanbul in 1990. There are no internal illustrations. If there was a T of C, it ...

Aesop's Fables: A New Version Chiefly from the Original Sources.
(John Murray, 1867)
This little book, marked as the third edition, is almost identical with my 1867/74 Murray edition. This copy lists a first edition in 1874 and a second in 1898. See my comments under 1867/74. I will note the differences ...
(Collins & Brother, 1848)
This beautiful book with gilt-embossed green cover (FS) and spine is clearly in the family represented by the 1848/48? edition from Collins and Brother. It shares with that edition the limitation to more than fifty ...
