The engravings are unfortunately quite indistinct.
A Type Specimen of Lutetia: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, Printer, 1970)
Six fables from Handford's Penguin translation give Berliner a chance to show off specimens of his lovely type, specifically Lutetia 12D Roman and Italic, 14D Roman and Italic, and 16D Roman.. Good woodblock illustrations ...
Select Fables of Aesop and Other Fabulists
(Printed for William Osborne and J & H Mozley, GainsboroughPrinted for Willm. Osborne & J.H. Mozley, 1850)
This is a small book, falling apart. It is almost identical with other Dodsley editions, but a quick check of the frontispiece and title page shows clear differences, additions and subtractions. The book's condition is ...

One of the heavier and more pretentious books in the collection. The book seems to me to represent a kind of printer's dream, drawing in all sorts of illustrations. I have listed Berger-Levrault as a publisher, but they ...
Select Fables from Aesop and Others
(William H. Murphy, 1852)
Eleven years ago I found a fragile copy of this book. It had lost its frontispiece and had numbers written in heavy black ink on both covers. Now I have found this second copy of the book, which is likewise fragile but ...
