Fables in Verse
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)

Esope en belle humeur ou l'elite de ses fables enrichies de figures/Esopus bey der Lust
(Johann Christoph Kißner, 1729)

Faules de Isop, Filosof Moral y de Altres Famosos Autors
(Estampa de Torras, 1885)
""Corregidas de nou." The closing T of C lists eight books. The sixth is attributed to Remicius. The full-page representation of Aesop is surprising: he is a handsome hunchback. The pose is that of Steinhöwel's Aesop ...

This is a curious little (4½ x 5½) volume. The first 54 fables on 118 pages are standard traditional Aesopic fables. Then, on 119-92, we have 38 fables that are taken from Peter Parley's Book of Fables Illustrated by ...
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.

Das grosse Buch der Fabeln
(Ensslin & Laiblin Verlag, 1962)
A wonderful book, a major resource, and a great bargain! The woodcuts (fifteen colored, mostly poorly) come from Steinhöwel's Äsopus (1477) and Das Buch der Weisheit (1483); their page numbers are on 248. Six chapters ...
Fables and Satires, With a Preface on the Esopean Fable
(Archibald Constable and Co., 1809)
