Favole di Esopo
(Edoardo Perino, 1887)
This is a large (8 x 11½) book with a crumbling spine. I find the (hand-?) colored frontispiece of FS by Griset priceless. Many of the illustrations here are as distinct as I have seen them; the tendency for Griset's ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(Hurst & Co. Publishers,, 1899)
After 140 pages of Aesop, there are Later Fables in the last 100 pages of the book. Compare the two copies to see how much more clearly Griset's work emerges in the blue-covered volume. Good AI. The Stutzman copy ...
Marcus Ward's Picture-Fables from Aesop in Four Books: The Jackdaw and Peacock and Other Fables
(Marcus Ward & Co., 1890)
This is one landscape-formatted booklet from a set of four. A further sub-title on the cover adds: From Aesop. Told anew in verse and figured in colors. There are six fables, recounted in verse by J. Hain Friswell. ...
(Boston: Lee and Shepard/NY: Charles T. Dillingham, 1878)
This book matches one I found over eleven years ago, with the single exception that it has a green cloth cover rather than the blue cover there. The gold of the god holding an axe on the cover with its red title-lettering ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables and One Hundred Picture Fables
(Donohue, HenneberryGeorge Routledge & Sons Ltd.,, 1885)
A strange combination of two books bound together. The Three Hundred portion is identical with my Routledge 1885?/1904 edition; both have 114 illustrations, though that one has different full-page illustrations. Townsend ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
Aesop's Fables Part I.
(Educational Publishing Company, 1894)
This is a reproduction of the first nine fables of Aesop's Fables (1892) by the same author and publisher. Notice that Aesop represents the first material for the first grade in the five cent classics advertised inside ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(A.L. Burt Company Publ.,, 1895)
Two things distinguish this little book: its monosyllables and the mix of drawings. Besides the majority of them, which are taken from Percy Billinghurst, there are several in a different medium and style, most of which ...
(Porter & Coates, 1848)
This book has a different cover from the Porter and Coates Alta edition, but interiorly they are the same. This book is in excellent condition, and the printing here of the Tenniel illustrations is excellent. The book ...
(Donohue Henneberry & Co.,, 1896)
This large-format book may be the best example in my collection of eclecticism and borrowing of established illustrations in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century book publishing. At least three great Aesopic ...
