Phaedri Augusti Liberti Fabulae Aesopiae
This book seems to reproduce the one which I have listed under 1876, right down to the page count. I will repeat my comments from there. This is one of the many printings under Number 620 in Carnes' Phaedrus bibliography. ...
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 ...
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 in Words of One Syllable Printed in the Learners' Style of Phonography, or Phonetic Shorthand
(Fred PitmanIsaac Pitman & Sons, 1886)
A handy little paperbound booklet comprising thirty-seven fables done, apparently, in straightforward fashion. I tried comparing the book with my 1919/30 Graded Readings in Gregg Shorthand, but I could find only one common ...
Aisopeion Mython Synagoge: Fabulae Aesopicae Collectae
(In aedibus B.G. Teubneri, 1884)
Here is a good, clothbound version of Halm's work. It is apparently a later photomechanical printing of the 1884 edition. Teubner's advertisements for Neuerscheinungen pasted in at the rear of the book include several ...

(Davidson, Peter's Hill, Doctor's Commons; D. Williams. Lith, 1880)
Rebound in blue cloth boards, this copy is 8¼ x 10¼. The original front and rear covers are present inside the added outer covers. The original front cover contains some lovely work designed by A. Butler. This work ...
The Baby's Own Aesop
(George Routledge and Sons, 1887)
At last I have the Routledge first edition. How wonderful! The colors are excellent. The early pages are a delight, featuring, e.g., owls with spectacles on the title page. The illustrations are differently colored and ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(George Routledge and Sons Limited,, 1887)
This is the fourth similar book, and I have two copies of it. Because both are in relatively poor condition, I will keep both in the collection. Of the similar books, two have noticeably different covers and come from ...
The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 with those of Avian, Alfonso, and Poggio, now again edited and induced by Joseph Jacobs.
(Burt Franklin, 1889)
The Same as Volume 1 of the David Nutt entry. Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). I am eager to try some of Jacobs' scholarship. There is a wonderful pedigree of Caxton's Aesop facing 1.
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable with Illustrations
(Cassell & Company Limited,, 1888)
Here is a second copy, slightly different and again in poor condition, of a book already in the collection. Its front cover, a pictorial red board, shows a circular image of FK. At its bottom is Copyright 1888 O.M. Dunham. ...
