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).
Aesopi Phrygis et Aliorum Fabulae
(Dominici LouisaeSumptibus Dominici Lovisae, 1780)
This little book belongs with three others in the collection, all with the same title and all by different publishers. They are listed under 1757? and 1777 and 1781. The publishers are Johannis Antonii Remondini in ...
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 ...
Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists. In Three Books
(John Baskervilleprinted by John Baskervlle [sic] for R. and J. Dodsley,, 1764)
This is, by all indications, the 1764 second edition of the Birmingham Dodsley. Tips from Serendipity's markings and from my favorite private collector have helped me. The private collector's description indicates that ...
The Book of Fables Chiefly from Aesop
(Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company/Cambridge: The Riverside Press, 1882)
I must stop buying this book! I bought this one on a hurried trip through the airport because it is in such excellent condition. See my comments on the various other printings of this book. Stedman's Victorian Poets is ...
Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists. A New Edition
(Printed for and sold by, Joseph and James Crukshank,, 1798)
Sold at Hamell's in Philadelphia. Three books: Ancient, Modern, and Original. As in my other editions of Dodsley, the index at the back is really a listing of morals; they sometimes repeat promythia or epimythia. ...
(Ekdoseis StratikeStratikē, 2000)
Here are thirty-six fables, each receiving a two-page spread, in a large-format polychromatic book. I recognized the work of Sergio Cavina, but am not sure of the ancestry of this volume. At least some illustrations are ...
(Galley Press, W.H. Smith & Son Limited, 1978)
Here is a very curious book, marked by the cover of a lion reading a fable book in the presence of other animals and a title-page wordless fable of two mules and two piles of fodder. The first curiosity is that I had not ...
Masterpieces: Pope, Aesop, Milton, Coleridge, and Goldsmith.
(Fowler & Wells Co., 1889)
A wild find nowhere near where fables might usually show up in this store. The second section of this five-part book is almost identical with the 1870 and 1873 booklets Aesop's Fables Illustrated. The only difference 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 ...
