The Fables of Aesop Based on the Texts of L'Estrange and Croxall (larger format: 5½x 7½)
(Thomas Y. Crowell Company, 1903)
These two books use the identical plates used to make the smaller format book published by Crowell in the same year. Thus they have 230 pages and 330 fables. See my comments there. These books have a slightly larger ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and One Hundred and Ninety-Eight Illustrations
(Derby & Jackson, 1859)
Here is one of many cheap reprintings with new illustrations of the Croxall edition of 1722. Perhaps the first thing to notice about this edition is that the dedication to Lord Halifax has been dropped. The preface's ...
The Fables of Aesop with Instructive Applications Illustrated with One Hundred Engravings
(Printed and published by William Milner, 1843)
This book represents a nice version in better condition of the book I have listed under 1870? from Milner and Sowerby. Their place of business is now Halifax, whereas then it is London. The same size as that volume (3¾ ...
Fables of Aesop and Others with Instructive Applications.
(Allen Brothers, 1870)
This book is identical with the two Miller editions of the same title and size, which I list under 1865 and 1890? See my comments there. This has the same markings embossed on its covers as the 1865 Miller book, though ...
The Fables of Aesop and Others Translated Into English With Instructive Applications
(William P. Nimmo, 1870)
How wonderful of Leon to find this for me on the web! It is yet another variation in the re-use of Croxall's translation of 1722. This one uses the plates used in the J.B.L. & Co. edition that I have listed under 1880? ...
Aesop's Fables (with 16 colour plates and 8 sepia illustrations)
(Ward Lock & Co., Limited,, 1924)
I happened to notice this book on an ABE listing and did not remember the sepia illustrations. So I checked my book and saw that it seemed otherwise identical to the one being offered but had no sepia illustrations. Now ...
The Little Esop (miniature)
(Philadelphia: Loomis and Peck. New Haven: Durrie and Peck, 1846)
See my notes on the 1848 edition by the same firms. The two editions seem to be identical. This little book is in very poor condition. Its Ebay advertisement says This sweet lil book has not had an easy life! Someone ...
Fables, A Short Anthology
(Keystone Picture BooksMartin International Pty Ltd., 1991)
This book reproduces exactly the hugely oversized book of the same year, title, and publisher. This book is only 7¾ x10½. See my comments there.
Count Your Way through Greece
(Carolrhoda Books, Inc., 1996)
This book counts to ten in Greek and highlights an element of Greek culture on a two-page spread for each of the numbers. "Ten" here is devoted to Aesop. The two pages illustrate ten animals featured in Aesop's fables. ...
(Europa Konyvkiado, 1987)
Here is a lovely find from my book hunting in Budapest. This hardbound book uses Hausrath's edition to offer 307 numbered fables. A little confused research following the Hungarian names found that this very edition is ...
