Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated.
(The World Syndicate Publishing Co., 1910)
I have two copies of this blue-covered book, the first a gift of David Dreis in 1987and the second purchased through Ebay. The latter has a surprising dj that features a pirate, the Mad Hatter, Alice, and others--but ...
(The Century Co., 1911)
A wonderful find! A nice title page illustration starts the book, and pleasant soft green borders remain throughout. There are 200 fables, indexed alphabetically at the front. The best illustrations include MM (15), AD ...
(The Palmer Company, 1911)
This book occurs at a fascinating point in publishing history. Stead's name in England is connected with Books for the Bairns. What I have seen of this series indicates that it follows a format of dividing every printed ...
(London: William Heinemann/NY: Doubleday, Page, and Co., 1912)
This book has a twofold claim to fame. First, it is a first edition of Rackham's Aesop's Fables. Thus the colored illustrations are thus very well done, and protected by slipsheets with the name of the illustration at ...
(Adam & Charles Black, 1912)

(Georg W. Dietrich, 1913)

(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1910)
This is in many ways a standard Weir book, with illustrations often poorly inked. It has the usual 114 engravings, duly tabulated in the list of illustrations at the front. It has the usual preface and life before that. ...
(Avenel Books: Crown Publishing Co., 1912)
T of C and list of illustrations. Many fables! The T of C goes on at length! The black-and-white illustrations are well done, but the colored are not well presented here. They look a bit drab.
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1910)
This book with Arthur Cooke's colored illustration of LM in a circle on its red cover is only my second Ward, Lock publication of Weir's work. It is smaller in format and thinner in inches but not in page count than that ...
(Wordsworth ClassicsWordsworth Editions Ltd, 1912)
Several years ago I found in London a very inexpensive (£.90) paperback reproduced in 1995 from material in the Rackham/Jones edition of 1912. Now I have hit the other end of the financial spectrum in this country. I ...
