Christmas Sports and Other Stories
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)
I noticed this companion when I found Fables in Verse in the same set. My reason for enjoying this book is that it uses two fable illustrations--one already used in that volume--to illustrate items here that have nothing ...
Fables in Verse
(Brown, Bazin, & Co, 1855)
This book gives me the feeling that I have seen it before, probably under other names. Its squarish page-format and short verse fables mark it off from other books. Each of the thirty-two fables (128 pages) receives one ...
Phaedri Augusti Liberti Fabularum Aesopiarum Libri Quinque.
(John Murphy Company, 1860)
Formerly the possession of the Divine Word Seminary in East Troy, Wisconsin. Book history investigators will find much here. This book uses the same plates used earlier (1860/90?) by a different publisher (Baltimore ...
Pleasant Stories for My Children
(Blakeman & Mason, 1890)
LM opens a collection of eight stories in an undersized book. The closing story is labelled out of nowhere Story XXIV! The lion puts his paw by accident onto the mouse, who makes only a squeak and no plea. The lion is ...
Canadian Series of Readings Books: Second Book of Reading Lessons.
(James Campbell and Son, 1869)
My first book from Canada, I believe. This is a small reader with twelve fables, six of them illustrated (at least one, 126, by Harrison Weir). New to me: The Two Dogs (20) and the long The Bear and the Tomtit ...
The Fables of Aesop
Here is an extra copy of the 1945 printing of this book. This book has strong similarities to the first printing in its lovely black vine-and-leaf pattern stamped onto its red cover (but not spine). This edition lacks ...
Here is an extra copy of this book lacking the last six pages. This little book with a green-and-gold embossed cover has very good illustrations, particularly for the book's age. The plates are identical with those in ...
Oeuvres de Florian: Les Fables
(Collection des Grands Classiques Français et Étrangers, 1890)
This is an extra copy of this book. The book is identical with another I have listed under the same date but edité spécialement pour les Magasins du Bon Marché. Perhaps the same publisher made the book for both agencies. ...
The Fables of Aesop [Cover: Warne's Edition of Aesop's Fables]
(Frederick Warne and Co./Scribner, Welford, and Armstrong, 1875)
Here is an extra copy of this book. I have been able to date this book to the period from 1872 to 1878, for it was during that six year period that Scribner's had the title Scribner, Welford, and Armstrong, which is listed ...
Les Fabulistes Latins, Tome 4
(Burt Franklin, 1893)
This fourth volume is given to Odo and his imitators. There is a helpful alphabetical list of the surprisingly large number of stories in this volume on 451-63, just before the T of C.
