Fables de La Fontaine en Images Lumineuses
(Albums du Père Castor: Flammarion, Éditeur, 1935)
There are here six silhouette images of fable scenes from La Fontaine. Apparently, another six are missing, perhaps from the stapled center of this pamphlet. The full list of twelve fables appears on the bottom of the ...
Fables de La Fontaine, Album No. 2
(Imageries Réunies de Jarville-Nancy[s.n., 1935)
This is a well crafted pamphlet with fifteen fables, each with the left-hand page devoted to La Fontaine's text and the right-hand page to a brightly colored illustration. The latter are somewhere between André Hellé and ...
The Fables of Florian
(John B. Alden, 1888)
T of C at the beginning. Fifty-one fables, preceded by a useful introduction to Florian (1755-94). Two Travellers (14) is often presented as Aesopic. Grandville's illustrations are always wonderful. One of the best ...
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).
Imagerie Artistique: 20 Fables de La Fontaine II.
(Ancienne Maison Quantin, 1890)
A beautiful collection aptly named. The format has square text inserted in a large picture, which often includes two phases or two scenes, human and fabulous. Do not miss the lovely front cover on the good copy. The ...
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 ...
(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 ...
Aesop's Fables Together with the Life of Aesop.
(Rand McNally, 1897)
This was one of the first books in my collection. I have come back to look at it again after reviewing a number of Dodsley editions, including the first in 1761 and Crukshank's in 1798. See my comments on those two books. ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and a Print Before Each Fable
(H. Mozley, 1807)
See my comments on the 1804 edition by the same publisher. By contrast, this book lacks the frontispiece and any title-page vignette; further its title above CJ on 1 (Aesop's Fables) is simpler, and the cuts are much ...
