Selections from Aesop's Fables
(D. Lothrop and Company, 1884)
Prose versions followed by Bates' long poetic versions surrounded with art. Might individual pieces have appeared individually in children's magazines? Childe Hassam is the best known illustrator, but his work here on ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(George Routledge & Sons, 1883)
This book has the same text as the 1895 title mentioning the same author. However the order of the stories (about one hundred) and of the illustrators is different. This edition has a cock/dog frontispiece and a fox and ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1898)
A very nice run of Griset and Croxall. The plates are identical with those in my Aesop's Fables (1893?) by Cassell. This book, I would guess, is the inexpensive reprint of that. Only the paper (cheaper here), the title ...
Old Friends in a New Dress or Select Fables of Aesop in Verse.
(London: Smith, Elder, and Co. Glasgow: Chalmers and Collins., 1826)
126 fables on 235 pages, followed by more than twenty pages of advertisements. In fact, the text itself is preceded and followed by commendations of an earlier edition of the book. I have tried the first three fables. ...
Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and One Hundred and Ninety-Eight Illustrations
(Clark Austin & Smith,, 1857)
Except for its cover, this little (4¼ x 6¼) book is identical with the Cowperthwait edition of 1850. Even the last word of the index on 358 has a similarly fractured letter h so that it misses its upper portion. The cover ...
The Little Esop
(H.C. Peck & Theo. Bliss, 1855)
This is the fifth version of this little book that I have found. Compare it with the first three and you find that the publisher is Smith and Peck in 1844, Loomis and Peck in 1846 and 1848, whereas now a Theo Bliss has ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
Aesop's Fables Part I.
(Educational Publishing Company, 1894)
This is a reproduction of the first nine fables of Aesop's Fables (1892) by the same author and publisher. Notice that Aesop represents the first material for the first grade in the five cent classics advertised inside ...
Aesop's Fables, Chiefly from Original
(The Ariel Booklets. NY: The Knickerbocker Press: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1848)
This edition shares identical text and engravings with many others, but in a lovely little leather-bound book with gold leaf and better reproductions. The illustrations are the same but the text, while identical, is set ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(A.L. Burt Company Publ.,, 1895)
Two things distinguish this little book: its monosyllables and the mix of drawings. Besides the majority of them, which are taken from Percy Billinghurst, there are several in a different medium and style, most of which ...
