(The Halford Sauce Companypublished for the proprietors [The Halford Sauce Co.], 1880)
A booklet like this shows one of the main reasons why I work on this collection. Aesop shows up in the strangest places! The preface bills this delightful sixty-four page booklet as a free translation of the Greek and ...
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!
Fables of Aesop and others
(O.S. FeltT.O.H.P. Burnham, 1864)

Bennett's Fables from Aesop and Others
(Viking Press, 1857)
Lively and delightful illustrations, here reproduced vividly. If there is a problem with Bennett's wonderful pictures, it is that the social commentary is so pointed that we lose or miss something as we view them in a ...
(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. ...
Ésope: Le Renard Qui Avait la Queue Coupée et Autres Fables.
(Enfantimages: Éditions Gallimard, 1857)
Beautifully reproduced colored pictures of seventeen fables from Bennett. The color work may be superior to that in editions from this country. The clever cover-picture is not included inside the book. The Wolf in the ...
Favourite Fables and Stories About Animals, containing: The Favourite Book of Fables and Favourite Stories about Animals
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1894)
The first of the two books combined here I have already had. It is a lovely little book of 117 fables with a mix of illustrators and illustration styles. As I write there, I think I can detect four different styles and, ...
