(J. Coker & Co. Ltd., 1921)
Compare with my Coker edition of 1921/30. This has sharper illustrations. Here there is nothing on the back of the title-page where that has a history of printings. Might this be a first edition? The only item against ...
The Herford Aesop: Fifty Fables in Verse.
(Boston: LeRoy Phillips, Publisher/Boston: Ginn and Co: Athenaeum Press, 1921)
The verse seems good. Several of the illustrations catch hold of the reader: the exploding frog (19), the lion having eaten a man (21), and the crane with a bill in his bill (81).
(George G. Harrap & Company Ltd., 1921)
This book is closest to the Crowell edition I have listed under 1921?/1925?. Like it, it has illustrations of TH (22) and FS (84). Contrast with the British Coker edition (1921/33), which lacks those two illustrations. ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Books Inc.,, 1925)
Printed from the same plates as my 1930? edition. See the description there. Their differences touch the cute dust-jacket (Aesop's Fables), the pre-title page ( Aesop's Fables 251 Series ), the title page (publisher ...
The Fables of Aesop (Cover and spine: Aesop's Fables)
(Albert Whitman, 1925)
Here is a third printing of this unusual book. Its cover is tan cloth. As I mentioned about the first printing, here is a singular find. I had never seen this book before, and I cannot find it mentioned in Hobbs, Quinnam, ...
(Harper & Brothers, 1927)
I had found what I thought to be a first edition of this book earlier from Greg Williams. This copy is, like that, a pictorial black cloth octavo with a colored frontispiece and three other full-page colored illustrations. ...
(Harper & Brothers, 1927)
This book is very similar to two others in the collection. All show a publication date of 1927. Like the Ten Editions book, this edition states First Edition with Louis Rhead's Pictures. Unlike either of those books, ...
Aesop's Fables [for the Children]
(Epworth Press J. Alfred Sharp,J. Alfred Sharp: the Epworth Press, 1920)
A remarkable find in very good condition. Fifty-two fables, listed in a T of C at the beginning. No numbers on the pages. Four full-color inserted pages of rather simple art ( The Cock, the Fox and the Dog on the ...
Aesop's Fables (FC on cover)
(Collins' Clear-Type Press, 1922)
This is another thinner edition of The Children's Press edition of the same year, but it has more in common with it than the previous listing. The layout of the T of C is identical, as are the title-page illustration and ...
Aesop's Fables (FC on cover, no colored illustrations)
(Collins' Clear-Type PressThe Children's Press, 1922)
This is a derivative version--shorter and no doubt cheaper--of Rountree's works from The Children's Press (1922?) and Collins' Clear-Type Press (1922?). This book has only twenty fables, no colored illustrations, and a ...
