(M.A. Donohue and Co, 1893)
This book is in the family of my 1892? and 1896 editions of the same name. See my comments in those two places. Differences from the former, to which it is closer, include these: This edition goes to 123, not 111; it ...
Aesop's Fables with Upwards of One Hundred and Fifty Emblematical Devices
(Thomas Cowperthwait & Co.,, 1839)
One hundred and ten fables, each with a simple woodcut and many with a (sometimes generic) tailpiece. Apparently the first paragraph of Croxall's Application is taken in each case. T of C at the front. Leather cover. ...
The Book of Fables Chiefly from Aesop
(Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company/Cambridge: Riverside Press, 1882)
I had had this book on my want list for some time. In April of this year, I found the 1910 reprint at Dulles. Now I find the first printing on Interloc! See my comments there. Good condition! AI at the back, before a ...
Aesop's Fables Accompanied by Many Hundred Proverbs and Moral Maxims Suited to the Subject of Each Fable
(P. Dixon Hardy, 1836)
A beautiful little book very nicely rebound in marbled boards. The title-page illustration is in the same family as that in the similar Thomas, Cowperthwait book of 1839. Here there are 105 fables; FM is missing at the ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables
(Pictorial Literature Society, 1884)
This book is nearly identical with the two Lothrop versions of 1884. See my comments there. Let me list the differences. The cover and the pre-title-page give Select Fables as the title. There are brown and white ...
Fables of Aesop
(Churchill RoadJoseph Tetley & Co., 1896)
Here is a lovely little advertising book with material lifted straight from the Jacobs/Heighway edition of 1894, right down to emblems and frontispiece. The advertising is for Tetley's Teas, and A.W. Miller of Auburn, ME, ...
The Fables of Aesop
(©1966 Legacy Press. Ann Arbor: University Microfilms, Inc.: Xerox., 1894)
Is it not curious that this publisher would choose to go back to Jacobs and Heighway the very year that Schocken picked them up? An unidentified Legacy Library editor G.H. writes an introductory note to the reader. ...
Two Fables of Aesop With Designs on Wood
(Vagabond Press of Lloyd Whydotski, 1818)
Nice cuts of The Lion, the Tiger, and the Wolf and The Envious Man and the Covetous. A curious little book. Notice the spelling of the city in Wisconsin!
Aesop's Fables in French
(Henry HoltSchönhof & Moller, 1864)
Wonderful treasures! The advertisement following the title page claims that Aesop is the usual first book for learning French. LaFontaine is not mentioned; the French of the fables is taken from the Latin of Abbé Paul. ...
(Bobley: Children's Classics Library, 1899)
A good example of a cheap knockoff reprint of an earlier work. See the editions dated 1899?, 1900, 1902, 1925, 1930, and 1930?. The text is identical with the non-expanded JBR versions, but the morals are omitted. ...
