The Fables of Aesop and Others Translated Into English With Instructive Applications
(William P. Nimmo, 1870)
How wonderful of Leon to find this for me on the web! It is yet another variation in the re-use of Croxall's translation of 1722. This one uses the plates used in the J.B.L. & Co. edition that I have listed under 1880? ...
Aesop's Fables Embellished with One Hundred and Eleven Emblematical Devices
(Printed at the Chiswick Press by C. Whittingham for J. Carpenter J. Booker, Sharpe and Hailes, and J. Carr,, 1813)
This is a curious find. At first it seems very similar to two smaller books, published in 1839 and 1841, with which it shares the words emblematical devices and a title-page illustration of a man seated in the countryside ...
Fables of Aesop and Others with Instructive Applications.
(James Miller, 1890)

Fables of Aesop, and Others(?)
This little volume is lacking a number of things, including its title-page, Fables II-VI, and the last 1½ fables. If it followed the tradition of similar Croxall editions, also lacking are a frontispiece, a preface, and ...
The Fables of Aesop [Cover: Warne's National Nursery Library]
(Frederick Warne and Co./Scribner, Welford, and Armstrong, 1875)
This copy is identical with one exception to a book I found five years ago from Columbia Basin Books. That copy had a cream-background board cover with a title of Warne's Edition of Aesop's Fables. At the top of the cover ...
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 ...
