The Wolf and the Lamb and Other Fables Illustrated by Stories from Real Life
(T. Nelson and Sons, 1875)
This booklet is close to several others that I have, but Nelson seems to have changed the format slightly. This volume lists one specific title first and then adds And Other Fables Illustrated by Stories from Real Life ...
The Tortoise and the Hare and other stories from Aesop's Fables retold for very young readers.
This book is perhaps more historically than artistically interesting. The Cheating Fortune-Teller is new to me. The wife is the real culprit in GGE. The Comedian and the Countryman might be the best for both story and ...
The Aesop for Children
(Rand McNally, 1919)
A red covered book with 103 fables on eighty pages. Alternating pairs of pages are done in color and black-and-white. The principle of selection of the original edition's fables is not easy for me to grasp, and those ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Edmund S. WoodMinia Press, 1943)
Lovely old--but rather fragile and beaten--miniature about an inch square. Several Heighway drawings are pirated in besides the approximately twenty drawings from Bennett.
The Fables of Aesop
(©1966 Legacy Press. Ann Arbor: University Microfilms, Inc.: Xerox., 1894)
Is it not curious that this publisher would choose to go back to Jacobs and Heighway the very year that Schocken picked them up? An unidentified Legacy Library editor G.H. writes an introductory note to the reader. ...
Two Fables of Aesop With Designs on Wood
(Vagabond Press of Lloyd Whydotski, 1818)
Nice cuts of The Lion, the Tiger, and the Wolf and The Envious Man and the Covetous. A curious little book. Notice the spelling of the city in Wisconsin!
Best Loved Fables of Aesop
(Avenel: CrownDistributed by Avenel Books, 1967)
The engravings are unfortunately quite indistinct.
Fables of Aesop according to Sir Roger L'Estrange.
(Harrison of ParisMinton Balch and Company,, 1931)
I first saw and admired this book at C. Dickens in April at a CAMWS meeting. I am glad I called Jeff Barnes back when I came for the APA meeting in December. There is some water damage and a bit of bowing to the Dickens ...
Aesop's Fables. With Instructive Morals and Reflections Abstracted from all Party Considerations, Adapted To All Capacities; and design'd to promote Religion, Morality, and Universal Benevolence
(For T. & T. Longman, C. Hitch & L. Hawes, I. Hodges I. & I. Rivinton, G. Keith & R. DodsleyPrinted by S. Richardson for T.&T. Longman C. Hitch & L. Hawes, I. Hodges, I&I Rivinton [sic], G. Keith & R. Dodsley,, 1740)
I had been working with my York Richardson from Spivey in Kansas City, which I had suspected was a second and maybe even a secondary edition. See my comments there. Now I am delighted to get this book. Some bookseller ...
Aesop's Fables with Instructive Morals
(printed for T. Wilson and R. Spence, 1740)
I have changed the date on this edition after getting a copy of a London edition, for which I have guessed a date of 1761. This edition seems to be that which Ulrike Bodemann places as a second edition of 1753, at the ...
