Classic Fables Selected and Edited for Primary Grades.
(Maynard Merrill, & Co.,, 1904)
I think this little book's only distinguishing feature is its huge print! Complete T of C on 3 is helpful.
(Moffat Yard & Company,, 1905)
Sixteen wonderful colored illustrations in perfect condition, as well as about twenty less good etchings. The Fowler edition is inscribed in 1908; it is hard to believe that a 1905 book is in such good shape. LM (40), ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
(George W. Jacobs & Company, 1910)
The most curious thing about this beautiful little book is its international sources: American, English, French. It is in a small format, and has only sixty pages. The colored pictures are excellent; the best is of the ...
Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated.
(The World Syndicate Publishing Co., 1910)
I have two copies of this blue-covered book, the first a gift of David Dreis in 1987and the second purchased through Ebay. The latter has a surprising dj that features a pirate, the Mad Hatter, Alice, and others--but ...
A First Reader
(W.W. Shannon Superintendent State Printing,, 1909)
This book represents a very slight modification of The Progressive Road to Reading: Book One from 1909 from the same authors and publisher. The back of the title page notes the dependence on that edition. This book adds ...
Children's Classics in Dramatic Form: Book Two
(Houghton Mifflin Company, 1909)
A novel (if direct and naive) approach to children's stories, including ten fables, with standard illustrations.
Folk-Lore and Fable: Aesop, Grimm, Anderson.
(P. F. Collier & Son Company, 1909)
An unspectacular selection of Joseph Jacobs' Aesopic fables claims the first 35 pages or so of this collection. It is, as far as I can see, valuable only as testimony to Aesop's popularity. No illustrations. T of C at ...
Merry's Museum and Woodworth's Cabinet, Vol. 48, No. 5, Nov., 1864
(J. N. Stearns, Publisher, 1864)
It pays to pick up the curiosities that bookdealers put on their counters. I wondered if this 1864 magazine might have a fable, and it does. The magazine, I am told, is the kind of thing that paperboys gave or sold to ...
Masterpieces of the World's Best Literature, Vol. 1
(Classic Publishing Company, 1910)
This first volume of this long series handles Addison to Blackmore. Aesop is third in line -- after Aeschylus -- and has five fables here: DLS WSC, TMCM, WL, and BS. The book's format is small: about 3½ x 6. There is ...
Things by Their Right Names
(Marsh, Capen, Lyon, & WebbThomas H. Webb & Co., 1840)
This little volume is unusual in having a series page, then a pre-title-page, and then a title-page. The pre-title page identifies this volume as Selections from the Writings of Mrs. Barbauld by Mrs. Sarah J. Hale. The ...
