Now showing items 1691-1700 of 1719
(Margaret Hamilton, 1990)
A very strong contribution to the recent history of illustration of Aesopic fables. As the publisher's note on the back of the title page points out, the book is an artistic tour de force of techniques, styles, and ...
(Ahlen & SönersŠhlen & Söners Förlag, 1932)
My, what you do not find when you ask! This Swedish version of Rackham was offered to me as the Danish first edition for $250. It seems to reproduce the 1912 Heinemann illustrations faithfully except for the way in which ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1900)
This book is almost identical with the McLoughlin Brothers edition I have listed already under the same year with a question mark. In comparison, this book has a different, cream-colored cover. It has the same end papers ...
(Adam & Charles Black, 1912)
This edition has a dust jacket but seems otherwise to reproduce my 1950 reprinting of the 1912 original. The colored illustrations are particularly well done here. This is what I wrote on that 1950 reprinting: It reduces ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers, 1904)
This seems to be an exact reprinting of the 1891 version, of which I have a copy. As I mention there, various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). Let ...
The Little Esop
(H.C. Peck & Theo. Bliss, 1855)
This is the fifth version of this little book that I have found. Compare it with the first three and you find that the publisher is Smith and Peck in 1844, Loomis and Peck in 1846 and 1848, whereas now a Theo Bliss has ...
(Herbert Joseph LTD, 1935)
Fifty-two fables in a small-format book (3¾ x almost 5½). The frontispiece is a simple colored presentation of FS. Morals are italicized. The book's condition is fair. There are no surprises here!
Aesop's Fables: A Classic Illustrated Edition.
(Chronicle Books, 1990)
A truly magnificent book--not that different from a book I would have liked to publish someday! Excellent black-and-white and color illustrations. The five-page introduction gives a good overview of the history of Aesop ...
Favole di Esopo
(Edoardo Perino, 1887)
This is a large (8 x 11½) book with a crumbling spine. I find the (hand-?) colored frontispiece of FS by Griset priceless. Many of the illustrations here are as distinct as I have seen them; the tendency for Griset's ...
De Nieuwe Aesopus. Groot Fabelboek voor Jong en Oud.
(J.B. Wolters, 1880)
Beautiful and copious Griset work, though some turns out dark even in so careful an edition. There seem to be three different kinds of Griset engravings. The fables come from various authors. Curiosities include eyeglasses, ...
