(The Halford Sauce Companypublished for the proprietors [The Halford Sauce Co.], 1880)
A booklet like this shows one of the main reasons why I work on this collection. Aesop shows up in the strangest places! The preface bills this delightful sixty-four page booklet as a free translation of the Greek and ...
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895)
This book compares most closely with my 1896 Aesop's Fables from Donohue, Henneberry, and Company. See my comments there. This book has a strange first page with four rabbits around a cartoon of grandpa kicking a football. ...
Il volgarizzamento delle favole di Galfredo dette di Esopo: testo di lingua, Vol. 2
(Gaetano Romagnoli, 1866)
Here is the second volume of a set whose unusual character I have suggested in my comments on Volume 1. This book still has a covering on its spine (broken between 112 and 113), and it reads Testo Inedito and Parte II. ...
(José J. de Olañeta, 1989)
A lovely little edition of thirty-five fables, extensively illustrated with Caxton's work now done in color. He is rarely thus chosen for his art, I believe. The text is a modernization of the 1489 edition here described ...
[Korean] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Mun Gong Sa, 1989)
Typical of recent Korean work: one design echoes the facing full page. The art is bright, sometimes strong and lively, sometimes only cute. There are five fables here: The Fox, the Rooster, and the Dog; TH; The Cat and ...
Les Fables d'Ésope mises en Français, avec le sens moral en quatre vers, et des figures à chaque fable. Nouvelle édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée de la vie d'Ésope, avec figures, et les quatrains de Benserade, dédiée a la jeunesse
(Chez Dugour, 1798)
This is a lovely old edition. Among its quaint features is that it is dated An VI to reflect the French revolution. It includes a life of Aesop covering 103 pages in twenty-seven chapters, with a rectangular illustration ...
Favourite Fables and Stories About Animals, containing: The Favourite Book of Fables and Favourite Stories about Animals
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1894)
The first of the two books combined here I have already had. It is a lovely little book of 117 fables with a mix of illustrators and illustration styles. As I write there, I think I can detect four different styles and, ...
Little Fables for Little Folks
(The Religious Tract Society, 1865)
This is an eighteen-page large format toy book printed by Kronheim & Company in London. Actually, six of the pages are chromolithograph inserts printed on only one side. Even the text-pages are printed on only one side. ...
My First Book of Fables
This book has some features of each of two other books that are very similar: The Children's Press version of the book by the same title under 1949? and the Collins edition listed under 1950?. The cover of this edition ...
Aesop: Fables/Medieval Tales
(Great Books Foundation, 1963)
Two fables per page through 48 pages. Compare with the 1967 version, which is shorter, is mated with different works, and occupies a different place in the GB program. The versions seem to be developed from Jacobs.
