The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables, Complete, with text based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. With Copious Additions from other Modern Authors
(Hurst & Co., 1890)
This book is like two others that I have. Its contents are very much like those in the Arlington Edition put out by Hurst and listed under 1899? There is no indication of an Arlington Edition here. It is exactly like a ...
The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange.
(A.L. Burt Company, 1910)
Compared to an adjacent listing from the same publisher, this edition has a different spine layout, cover color (red, not green), series, and frontispiece (WC from Billinghurst, unacknowledged). As does that other Burt ...
(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 ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1900)
This edition seems a standard Lupton edition, with its Later Fables beginning on 157. Compare it with my Lupton copies under 1901? and 1902?. The big surprise in this copy comes when one pages through and finds no ...
(Homewood Publishing Company, 1930)
A curious melange. The text appears to be identical with that in Cassell's Aesop's Fables (1893/1893?) illustrated by Griset and in Hurst's The Book of Fables (1899?), also illustrated by Griset. The author, unacknowledged ...
Twenty Four Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists.
(E.P. Dutton and company, 1928)
Most of the illustrations are taken from Gheeraerts' edition from Bruges of 1567 (the three others are from Gheeraerts' work published in another edition of 1617). The high quality etchings are unfortunately a bit light ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F. M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1901)
Identical plates with the edition by the same publisher that I have listed under 1902?. This edition has a different cover and different paper; it also lists an address for the Lupton Publishing Company. This book ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Dodd Mead and Company,London: John Lane the Bodley Head/NY: Dodd, Mead, 1898)
A beautiful book, though the illustrations do not come out with first-rate clarity. L'Estrange's versions are often succinct.
(Cambridge University Press? (George Harrap?)s.n.], 1936)
This is an exceeding strange book. It has the basic marks of Bodemann #434.1, Gooden's classic edition of Aesop. But it lacks any Gooden illustrations beyond the excellent initials for each fable. Bodemann shows a ...
a Fox & a Sick Lion
(Corydon Press, Indiana University, 1944)
A beautifully executed and preserved piece of work. L'Estrange's version is typically direct and involving. Low's colored wood-cut is bold and dramatic. For more of his work, see Harvest of World Folk Tales (1949/55).
