The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. Complete, with text based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. With Copious Additions from other Modern Authors
(National Library Association, 1883)
This book is bibliographically almost a perfect match for one I have listed under 1883, published by John B. Alden in New York. Let me list their differences. This book has the same size page, but is almost twice as ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables, Complete, with text based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. With Copious Additions from other Modern Authors
(Hurst & Co., 1890)
This book is like two others that I have. Its contents are very much like those in the Arlington Edition put out by Hurst and listed under 1899? There is no indication of an Arlington Edition here. It is exactly like a ...
Fables of Aesop and Others. Translated into English. With Instructive Applications and a Print before each Fable
(Peter Brynberg, 1802)
For a start on this little book, consult my comments on the eleventh edition (1778) and seventeenth edition (1805) of Croxall's original work of 1722. This very early American Croxall (perhaps the first US edition?) falls ...
Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists in Three Books. Ancient, Modern, and Original
(S. Fisher, 1802)
According to Bodemann, the text makeup of this book is the same as in the origianal 1761 edition with the exception of A New Life of Aesop. Osborne and Mozley in London had apparently issued a new edition in 1800, and ...
Aesop in Rhyme, with Some Originals With an engraving to each fable
(Printed for Baldwin and Cradock, 1821)
Bodemann #241.1 lists the first edition of this work in 1820. The frontispiece in both my 1823 and 1828 editions gives a date of 1821. Whereas the second edition in 1823 lists itself as The Second Edition, Corrected, ...
Aesop in Rhyme, or Old Friends in a New Dress
(Philadelphia: C.G. Henderson & Co./NY: D. Appleton & Co., 1854)
This little book rewards some study. The first fables, through 78, repeat verbatim the texts of Jefferys Taylor in his 1821 Aesop in Rhyme, with Some Originals. From what I can tell, later stories in this book that repeat ...
