Esopet: Facsimile-Uitgave naar het Enig Bewaard Gebleven Handschrift Deel I
(Menno Hertzberger, 1965)
Volume I of this two-volume set has valuable lists on 7 correlating the fables of this middle Dutch verse Esopet to Steinhoewel. There is also a valuable listing of the fables' principal characters on 22-25. Facsimile ...
Esopet: Facsimile-Uitgave naar het Enig Bewaard Gebleven Handschrift Deel II
(Menno Hertzberger, 1965)
Volume II of this two-volume set transcribes the sixty-seven fables into clearer contemporary print, beginning a new page for each new fable. There are vocabulary notes at the bottom of the page and notes on the texts on ...
Aesop's Fables Illustrated
(Fowler and Wells, 1867)
Here is a pleasant little surprise. Earlier, I had worked my way back through editions of 1873, 1870, and 1868. The seller had told me that the last of these was a first edition. Now here is the identical book published ...
Esopo: Fábulas Escogidas
(Gráficas Aymamí?s.n., 1956)
This little paperbound book of 105 pages contains thirty-three verse fables, many of them illustrated by Noguera. I found these illustrations, most of which seem frankly derivative: on 25 a frontispiece a la Grandville ...
la liebre y la tortuga
(Ediciones La GaleralaGalera, 1973)
This version places the story outside Barcelona. The best of the illustrations is of the bunny sleeping against a tree. This rabbit napped until the turtle caught up. Then the rabbit took off to Vic and there had dinner ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Henry Altemus, 1897)
This book is an almost exact replica of that by the same title and publisher listed under 1899. Only this one says Copyright 1897. See my extensive comment there. This book is inscribed in 1902. It has a different ...
Aesop's Fables Coloring Book
(Dover Publications, 1972)
Valuable because of the nicely enlarged and clear Ulm drawings (1476).
Aisopeion Mython Synagoge: Fabulae Aesopicae Collectae
(B.G. Teubner, 1884)
As Smith's advertisement had said, wraps crudely repaired. No cover. The preface is dated 1852. I have several Teubner editions, but I think it would take several more to fill in the tradition that starts (here?) with ...
The Very Greedy Dog
(Dominie Press, 1999)
This book is identical with a copy already in the collection except that it is a fourth rather than a third printing. It is in better condition than the earlier copy. I am surprised that I have never run into this series ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and One Hundred and Ninety-Eight Illustrations
(Derby & Jackson, 1857)
This copy seems identical with -- but is in better condition than -- our copy of the 1859 edition from Derby and Jackson. I will repeat some of my observations from there. This is one of many cheap reprintings with new ...
