The Fables of Aesop, Selected, Told Anew and Their History Traced
(Albert Whitman & Co., 1920)
By my best count, this is the seventeenth version I have of Heighway and Jacobs' work. This is a simple and smaller book than many (4½ x 6¾). It acknowledges neither Jacobs nor Heighway, but it does have J.J. as the ...
Fables of Aesop
(John Lane The Bodley Head ltd.,, 1926)
A curious book in very good condition. Seven nice duochrome illustrations join excellent engravings that, like the print, are deeply impressed into the paper. The language is often archaic. The fables chosen and versions ...
Les Fables d'Esope Phrygien Illustrées de Discours Moraux, Philosophiques, et Politiques
(Chez François Foppens/J. Michael Müller Verlag, 1920)
Here is a second excellent reproduction of a 1669 book. I had already found Bonnot's 1988 reprint at Librairie Epsilon in Paris nine years ago. Now comes this 1920 version from J. Michael Müller in Munich. This reprint ...
(Exeter Books, 1924)
Surprisingly good runs of the reproductions of Rountree's work. This book is closest to the sixteen-illustration edition of 1924? As is typical of Exeter, there is no introductory or bibliographical material.
(Ward Lock & Co., Limited,, 1920)
Here is a fragile book of 256 pages. As the opening T of C shows, there are 58 fables. This is the only non-illustrated edition I have of Blanche Winder's work. Normally her texts are associated with the visual work of ...
Hundert und acht Äsop'sche Fabeln für die Jugend
(Verlag von Wilhelm Nitzschke, 1920)
Neu bearbeitet und mit moralischen Anmerkungen versehen. Not in Bodemann. Seventy-two pages plus four inserted water-color illustrations. T of C at the beginning notes the four fables that have the colored illustrations. ...
The Fables of Aesop. Complete, with Text Based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange.
(A.L. Burt Company, 1920)
Already one of my favorite books because of the hand-colored illustrations. Also it takes the JBR text used with so many other illustrators. A lovely book! See the adjacent Burt edition of same year and title for ...
Aesop's Fables (with 48 colour plates)
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1924)
A real find. The retellings are a bit lengthy. The colored illustrations--in the tradition of Norman Rockwell--are delightful. There are great illustrations to show people and several for use in a lecture: FG on 144 ...
Fabels van Aesopus
(H. Meulenhoff, 1920)
This squarish little book grows on me. There are two nice colored pictures on the cover and opposite the title page. The extensive black-and-white illustrations in the text are generally simple and even anatomically ...
Die erneuerten Aesopischen Fabeln nebst den hiezu geeigneten Lehren zusammengetragen zum wahren Nutzen und unterhaltenden Vergnuegen
This is one of my favorite books in the collection, since it offers the twenty hand-colored illustrations similar to or identical with Steinhoewel's original Ulm edition. Some of the most dramatic of the twenty are: WS ...
