(McLoughlin Brothers, 1900)
This book is almost identical with the McLoughlin Brothers edition I have listed already under the same year with a question mark. In comparison, this book has a different, cream-colored cover. It has the same end papers ...
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1900)
This book seems to be a surprising congeries of elements from other editions. The front cover has the same central illustration of WC that was used by Donohue on its 1892? edition, which also contains the same apostrophe-less ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Charles E. Graham & Co., 1900)
This book drives me crazy because it seems to be composed of things I have seen before. The frontispiece is a colored picture (the book's only one) of a wolf and a lamb, and I know I have seen it elsewhere. The top of ...
Aesop's Fables (Cover and Spine: Aesop's Fables for Children)
(Crane & Company Publishers,, 1904)
I have found a surprising amount in this unprepossessing little book of ninety-four fables based on the versions of Croxall and l'Estrange. The introduction finds that there are 231 fables attributed to Aesop, apparently ...
(Platt & Munk Co. Inc.,, 1905)
The curious history of this book goes on. See my comments on the Moffat original of 1905 and on the Platt and Peck edition of 1905/13. Now this version seems to copy that except for the change, on spine and title page, ...
Muthon Aisopeion Ekloge (Greek): Choix de Fables d'Ésope: Texte Grec suivi d'un lexique
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1900)
The first surprise in this little book of 84 pages is the Jesuit seal on the title-page. Where does that come from? A two-page notice on Aesop precedes some forty-one Greek fables on 26 pages. A Greek-French dictionary ...
The Fables of Aesop in Words of One Syllable.
(Henry Altemus Co., 1900)
This book replicates the book from the same publisher with the same title, except that it stops abruptly after 128, not even including the illustration for LM on 128. See my comments there. Its cover is white cloth, and ...
Les Fables d'Ésope
(Garnier FréresLibrairie Garnier Frères, 1905)
Here is a translation of 426 fables, some with clearly marked variants. This text is based on Halm's 1901 edition of the fables. There are 333 pages and an AI.
Aesop's Fables Told in Easy Words
(London: George Routledge/NY: E.P. Dutton/Toronto: The Musson Book Company, 1900)
This book reproduces with hard boards and a blue cloth spine the soft-covered printing I have under the same date by the same publisher. Like it, the cover's title is Aesop's Fables, while the title-page has Aesop's Fables ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1901)
This edition stands out from others by Griset from McLoughlin in that it gives its own date (on a rock in the cover illustration). It has the lovely colored TMCM frontispiece one can find in both 1900? editions from ...
