The Fables of Aesop with a Life of the Author
(John W. Lovell Co., 1895)
Here is the copy with a plain blue cover identical on the inside with copies with tan and blue covers featuring Oxford Edition in a medallion on both the cover and the spine. This plainer copy has nothing on the dark blue ...
The Fables of Aesop with a Life of the Author.
(John W. Lovell Company, 1895)
Herrick's illustrations for Aesop were much reproduced, it seems to me. This is one of three different versions of the Oxford Edition that presents his designs, one each for one-hundred-and-ten fables. All these editions ...
Select Fables from Aesop and Others
(William H. Murphy, 1852)
Here is a small book (4 x 6) in poor condition. Green cloth covers. The spine has a gold title, a tall figure of Aesop the teacher and a student (?), and One Hundred Illustrations. The front cover has a floral cornucopia. ...
Ocht Sgealta o Aesop: Rang III, Ard-chursa, agus, Rang IV, Bun-chursa
(Macmillan agus a Gcomhlucht, Teo.ar n-a fhoillsiú do mhuinntir Ch. S. Ó Fallamhain Teo.,, 1935)
Gaelic readers will be able to understand more from the bibliographical data for this book than I can. I can see that it is a reader -- perhaps a school reader for the third and fourth grades? -- of some 32 pages offering ...
Aesop's Fables for SATB and piano
(Music Department: Oxford University Press, 2008)
This is a 37-page large-format pamphlet that has helped me learn that SATB stands for soprano, alto, tenor, bass. Chilcott in his Composer's Note on 1 acknowledges George Fyler Townsend's texts. Five fables are offered ...
Five Funny Fables and how to play them
(A. & C. Black Ltd.,, 1919)
I had bought a copy of this book sixteen years ago for about one-seventh the price! This copy is different in at least two respects. First, its spine is not broken at the top nor frayed at the bottom. Secondly, its cover ...
(Platt & Nourse Co., 1913)
The curious history of this book goes on even further than I had thought! Platt had three different partners in a fairly short time: Peck in 1913, Nourse after that, with Munk apparently still later. This copy lacks the ...
Aesop's Fables: The Hare and the Tortoise and The Travelers and the Bear
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1995)
Here is a new presentation of the same art that Hirata used in 1989 for his Joie set. The art here is certainly superior in presentation to the Peter Haddock series (1989?). It is darker than Joie's art, sometimes stronger ...
My Book of the Lion and the Mouse and Other Fables.
(Oddhams PressOdhams, 1961)
This is really a printing for another publisher and audience of the same book I have listed under My Book of Aesop's Fables in 1962. It is the same book internally, but there are some very curious variations, starting ...
(Watermill Press, 1985)
The urge to put out cheap editions of Aesop continues! The versions here seem to be bent toward good story-telling. Are they taken from some earlier edition?
