Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(Cassell Petter and Galpin,, 1868)
Now this is very surprising. Over years I worked my way back to what I thought was a first edition of Godolphin's work, published by James Miller in NY in 1869. Now I have here in my hand, for $142 less, a copy inscribed ...
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 ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(Hurst & Co. Publishers,, 1899)
After 140 pages of Aesop, there are Later Fables in the last 100 pages of the book. Compare the two copies to see how much more clearly Griset's work emerges in the blue-covered volume. Good AI. The Stutzman copy ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(A.L. Burt Company Publ.,, 1895)
Two things distinguish this little book: its monosyllables and the mix of drawings. Besides the majority of them, which are taken from Percy Billinghurst, there are several in a different medium and style, most of which ...
(Donohue Henneberry & Co.,, 1896)
This large-format book may be the best example in my collection of eclecticism and borrowing of established illustrations in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century book publishing. At least three great Aesopic ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and a Print Before Each Fable
(H. Mozley, 1807)
See my comments on the 1804 edition by the same publisher. By contrast, this book lacks the frontispiece and any title-page vignette; further its title above CJ on 1 (Aesop's Fables) is simpler, and the cuts are much ...
Aesop's Fables, Vol. I
(Educational Publishing Company, 1892)
Standard except for the illustration and event finishing the FG on 10: the grapes smile and laugh! The Bull and the Gnat becomes The Horse and the Fly. Helpful introduction: both boys and girls like Aesop; ...
The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 Volume I
(David Nutt, 1889)
I had noted this book sitting on Midway's shelf for years. I once recommended it to the Heffelfinger collection in Minneapolis. I never realized that it was Joseph Jacobs' own copy. I am now especially delighted to add ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
Aesop's Fables Part I.
(Educational Publishing Company, 1894)
This is a reproduction of the first nine fables of Aesop's Fables (1892) by the same author and publisher. Notice that Aesop represents the first material for the first grade in the five cent classics advertised inside ...
