(Verlag von Karl J. Trübner, 1870)
Here is a German-language article of some 83 pages on a Dutch manuscript of the fifteenth century. It represents typically careful German work. The texts themselves are listed with their Latin titles on 15. They represent ...

(Swyddfa'r "Genedl Gymreig"Swyddfa'r Genedi Gymreig, 1896?)
This book reproduces Books for the Bairns -I that Stead published as the first volume in his Books for the Bairns series in 1896. The page count (62) and illustrations are identical. This copy has glazed pictorial paper ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Dorset Press, 1975)
This is a clear, crisp reprinting -- with almost no margins -- of Gambit's great book of 1975. The illustrations are still wonderful! As I wrote there, this is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine ...
Aesop's Fables: 30 Fables from Thomas Bewick's Works, Volume IV (Memorial Edition).
(Workshop of Letterio Calapai, 1973)
Excellent prints from the original blocks of The Fables of Aesop (1818). The title's reference to Volume IV is apparently to Thomas Ward's five-volume memorial edition of Bewick's works, published in 1885-7. The best of ...
Aesop's Fables in Irish--Parts I to V
(The Irish Book Company, 1909)
Fifty fables and a vocabulary that stretches almost longer than the fables! Sorry. Since I cannot read this text, I do not have much more to say!
The Lion and the Mouse.
The same book as the edition of 1979 but with a slightly different spine and title page. The illustrations here may be a bit darker. See my comments on the original.

These eleven colorful banners were hung in the lobby of 1251 Avenue of the Americas during renovations. Now this volume is dedicated to the tenants, guests, and friends for their patience and understanding during the ...
The Fables of Aesop: Altemus' Young P
(Henry Altemus, 1899)
Compiled is right! The illustrators in this small, squarish book include Billinghurst, Weir, and Tenniel. The texts come from James and others. The fascinating advertisements for books at the back allow, I believe, ...
(London: J.M. Dent/NY: E.P. Dutton, 1913)
I am delighted at last to get an early Everyman edition. Compare this edition with that of 1913/42. There are surprising little changes, though the body of the introduction, the fables presented, and their pagination ...
The Fables of Aesop in Words of One Syllable.
(Henry Altemus Co., 1900)
This book is a triumph of pirating! The very first story, WL, comes straight from Godolphin. Note that Altemus has used the same text in The Fables of Aesop (1899), both in and outside the Altemus' Young People's Library ...
