(Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1908)
A beautiful traditional Aesop that I had never had in my hand before. Excellent condition. Maybe 250 fables printed very nicely two or three to the page with no runovers. The brief versions may sometimes evidence a lack ...
(Andrews and McMeelAndrews and McNeel, 1991)
Pleasing, lively acrylics in a small-format book that was ordered as part of a promotion in conjunction with a lecture I gave here. Eleven fables. Differently told: Androcles and the lion are caught together. In the ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(Phonetic InstituteSir Isaac Pitman and Sons, 1900)
A curiosity to go along with Gregg (1919/30) and French stenography (1875?). Thirty-seven fables without illustration follow a T of C. The cover has come loose from the body of this quaint little book.
The Fables of Aesop
(Distributed by Random HouseGramercy Books, 1909)
By contrast with my other versions of Detmold's work, this edition has some 174 pages, since the twenty-three illustrations are numbered pages. A quick check suggests that the print plates are still the same, however. I ...
Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated.
(The World Syndicate Publishing Co., 1910)
This book is essentially a reprinting of the 1910? Goldsmith edition with a brown cover given me by Elizabeth Willems. The cover is imprinted with the same design of lamps and books. The book shows the same mistake as ...
(Running Press, 1994)
An ingenious set. The fun starts with the excellent match of the book's cover with the surrounding package's picture. It continues with the insertion of a tape into the back of the book. The tape's renditions are much ...
Aesop's Fables (brown)
(Heritage Press, 1941)
The interior of this book seems identical with that of the boxed yellow version from the same publisher in the same year, except that the T of C gives 126 for 124 and is off by two pages for the rest of its listings. This ...
(London: J.M. Dent & Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton & Company, 1961)
A beautiful edition distinctive for its green, blue, orange or tan two-tone art, a specimen of which appears on every page except 15 and 71. Some samples of very good illustration occur on 46, 85, 108, and 114. Perhaps ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Lothrop Lee & Shepard Books,, 1994)
One hundred and three fables with thirty full-color paintings and many pen-and-ink drawings. The former are unusually well defined. In her first note, Rowan says that the morals have been so over-quoted that they have ...
Great Illustrated Aesop's Fables
(Baronet Books, 1994)
Does the fact that the cover and title page need to give examples indicate something? This seems to me to be an ultimate formula book. The two-page formula involves a story on the left, with a moral beneath it, and a ...
