Aesop's Fables Illustrated
(Samuel R. Wells, 1870)
My best and earliest copy of this thin work. It probably gets the prize for the smallest print in my collection. AI at the beginning and a list of illustrations. Tenniel's illustrations remain wonderful, even when ...
Aesop's Fables, Vol. II
(Educational Publishing Company, 1892)
Apparently the revised edition of my 1894 Volume II. It adds a repetition of the revised introduction from Volume I. See my notes on the revised Volume I (1892/1912). The best of the undistinguished illustrations are ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
I cannot believe that I have found yet another version of this book--in two different forms! I did not know how distinct each was when I was buying them. Closest to the 1885?/1904? Routledge version, except that the ...
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(John Lane the Bodley Head Ltd., 1898)
A beautiful book, distinguished from the next (1924) edition by this edition's brown board covers embossed with animal figures. The illustrations seem quite sharp.
The Little Esop
(Philadelphia: Loomis and Peck. New Haven: Durrie and Peck, 1848)
Florence's affection for this beautiful little book is touching and well founded. It is a little treasure that she did not want to let go! In the frontispiece, a seated Aesop holds a book before two children. The very ...
The Fables of Aesop with Instructive Applications Illustrated with One Hundred Engravings
(Milner and Sowerby, 1870)
This is a wonderful little find, 3¾ x 5. Most Croxall editions (including the earliest) have 196 fables. This edition has 211 fables. Miller’s 1865 edition has 248. In fact, there are 208 here and then three separate ...
Aesop's Fables Complete
(John B. Alden, 1888)
This is a no-nonsense book of 87 pages with an AI on 3-4. The AI marks the illustrated fables with an asterisk. I note thirty-one of them, done two or three to a page. The translator is not noted, and a quick sample ...
Aesop's Little Fable Book
(W.P. Nimmo Hay & Mitchell,, 1890)
The fun of this little (4¼ x 6¼) book starts with a red cloth cover imprinted with yellow, red, and green; it shows a girl punting a rowboat. The frontispiece is a strong etching of a ewe reflected in a pool. On the title ...
Ek Ton Tou Aisopou Mythoi Eklektoi/Nouveau Choix des Fables d'Ésope
(Librairie Classique d'Eugène Belin, 1850)
Here is a schoolbook that has lasted for some years. The preface to the first edition is dated 1824, and this is listed as a Nouvelle Édition. The first two pages of the text, including apparently four fables, are missing, ...
Fables d'Ésope, Mises en Français avec le sens moral en quatre vers, Tome Premier
(Chez Leprieur, 1806)
This pair of volumes is curiously not in Bodemann, even though #191 is Le Prieur's apparent companion volume Fables de la Fontaine, with a second edition in 1807. Planudes' life of Aesop takes this first volume up to 144. ...
