The Fables of Aesop
(Schocken Books, 1894)
This may be the best single simple edition of Aesop I know. Heighway is a wonderful illustrator. This edition presents the engravings quite crisply.
Aesops Fables (Inside: Old Fables in a New Dress)
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1890)
The same size as my 1880 Aunt Louisa Series World-Wide Fables. I am delighted now to have a good copy. There are six brilliant full-page illustrations (and some curious retellings): FS, FG (the vineyard-owning dog appears ...
(J.B. Lippincott Company, 1892)
Beautiful leather covers and good illustrations. Surprisingly large margins; was the text perhaps set up for a smaller, cheaper edition? The best illustrations are of the horse and lion (75), the fox and goat (81), DLS ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Henry Altemus, 1899)
This book seems a cheaper version of the Altemus' Young People's Library edition; see the two copies of this edition listed nearby. This book shares the same spine format with the Yoffee copy there, but has a dark ...
(Cassell & Company Limited,, 1893)
As yet undiscovered editions of Griset's work continue to appear. In this case I am particularly grateful. This is a very nice book in very good condition! Its 422 pages, including an AI at the end, are very compact. ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(John Lane the Bodley Head, 1899)
I do not know whether I can count this beautiful book a first edition. My later copies (1922 and 1924 printings) show a printing history that begins in 1898 and has a first reprinting in 1902, but this book shows no similar ...
The Isopo Laurenziano
(The Lawrence Press Co., 1899)
A good text, well placed and edited, of a Florence manuscript which includes forty-six fables and is an Italian derivative of Marie de France. (Other Italian fable manuscripts were based principally on Walter of England, ...
Fables of Aesop
(Bay View Publishing Co.[Bay View Pub. Co.], 1894)
This book compares in rough fashion with the four mentioned together under 1894/1901?, but it has a number of distinctive features. The other four begin fables on 26 and end on 202 with And this is the end of Aesop's ...
Aesop's Fables Together with the Life of Aesop.
(Rand McNally, 1897)
Just as in the adjacent item found in Stillwater, the plates in this edition seem to be identical with those in the 1897 edition of the same title from the same publisher. As in that Stillwater edition, there is no date ...
Aesop's Fables, Vol. II
(Educational Publishing Company, 1892)
Apparently the revised edition of my 1894 Volume II. It adds a repetition of the revised introduction from Volume I. See my notes on the revised Volume I (1892/1912). The best of the undistinguished illustrations are ...
