Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
My, how the late nineteenth century pumped out the Aesops! This one differs from my two other Three Hundred versions by using only fifty of Weir's illustrations (very well done here) and acknowledging that he did them. ...
(J. B. Lippincott & Co., 1873)
This little book in only fair condition seems to reproduce the 1873 version published by Strahan. Like that earlier version from a different publisher, this little book has a green-and-gold embossed cover. The plates are ...
The Caldecott Aesop
Lovely stuff, though the pictures are sometimes so bound to the contemporary social and political setting that it is hard for us to see the point. DLS is particularly good, with a skillful modern instance. Valuable ...
The Fables of Aesop, and Others, with Designs on Wood, by Thomas Bewick
(Printed by E. Walter for T. Bewick and SonPrinted by E.Walkerfor T. Bewick and son. Sold by them, Longman and Co. London,, 1818)
This is the highly prized second edition of the 1818 Fables of Aesop. Bodemann 236.2. As Metzner there points out, we now have on xvi at the end of the Introduction, not the earlier Druckfehlerteufel but rather an old ...
Aisopeion Mython Synagoge: Fabulae Aesopicae Collectae
(B.G. Teubner, 1884)
As Smith's advertisement had said, wraps crudely repaired. No cover. The preface is dated 1852. I have several Teubner editions, but I think it would take several more to fill in the tradition that starts (here?) with ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Macmillan Company, 1894)
A reprint of the 1894 edition, with a colored frontispiece of FC. Otherwise apparently a standard reprinting.
(Robert B. Collins, 1848)
Here is yet a third version of what may be the first American edition of the Tenniel and James book. Earlier I had found versions with black and red embossed covers. This version has a plainer brown cloth cover. Only ...
Il volgarizzamento delle favole di Galfredo dette di Esopo: testo di lingua, Vol. 1
(Gaetano Romagnoli, 1866)
Here is a strange, delicate, unlikely, wonderful find. How likely is it that I find in a Stuttgart bookshop one of 202 copies of an obscure 1866 Bologna publication on an Italian popularization of medieval fables? This ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(James Miller, 1879)
This book largely replicates the first edition of Godolphin's book by James Miller in 1869. See my comments there. Some things have changed. Miller's address has changed from 647 to 799 Broadway. The cover has changed ...
Aesop's Fables, Vol. II
(Educational Publishing Company, 1894)
The mate to the Volume I (1892). How nice that I have found its companion! Though the covers are somewhat battered, the book inside is in very good condition. Thirty fables done as in Volume I, with black-board words ...
