Fables of La Fontaine, 4th ed.
(Sanborn Carter & Bazin,, 1856)
The plates here are those of my sixth edition Tappan and Dennet from 1843, with larger margins and a double line framing each page. See my comments there. I have no idea what Fourth Edition means on the title-page here, ...
Fables et Oeuvres Diverses de J. La Fontaine
(Librairie de Firmin Didot Frères, 1854)
Three quarter sheep with marbled boards, octavo, 555 pages with engraved portrait frontispiece after Hopwood, and an AI. I have a Walckenaer edition of 1839 and another published in 1910. The fables seem complete; they ...
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 de La Fontaine
(P.-C. Lehuby, 1850)
Front cover is separated. Covers and spine were once apparently impressive. Front cover has an embossed gold shrine to La Fontaine and back has embossed WL. Spine has medallions of La Fontaine above and Aesop below a ...
One Hundred Fables, Original and Selected
(J. & D.A. Darling, 1850)
Is this book a reprinting of the original 1828 version of a hundred fables (first series) with 280 illustrations, done now by a different publisher than the original Lawford? Or might it be a reprinting of Northcote's ...
A Selection of One Hundred of Perrin's Fables Accompanied with a Key
(Blanchard and Lea, 1853)
I have copies of this book from 1832, 1840, and 1842. The latter two copies were published by Lea and Blanchard. This 1853 copy is published by Blanchard and Lea. I will bet there is a curious story behind that change ...
Bennett's Fables from Aesop and Others
(Viking Press, 1857)
Lively and delightful illustrations, here reproduced vividly. If there is a problem with Bennett's wonderful pictures, it is that the social commentary is so pointed that we lose or miss something as we view them in a ...
Ésope: Le Renard Qui Avait la Queue Coupée et Autres Fables.
(Enfantimages: Éditions Gallimard, 1857)
Beautifully reproduced colored pictures of seventeen fables from Bennett. The color work may be superior to that in editions from this country. The clever cover-picture is not included inside the book. The Wolf in the ...
Ausgewählte Fabeln des Phädrus
(Weidmann'sche buchhandlungWeidmannsche Buchhandlung, 1853)
This paperbound booklet of 88 pages selects sixty fables for consideration. Most of each page is given to notes. Carnes #590 makes this the first edition of this booklet.
Aisopeion Mython Synagoge: Fabulae Aesopicae Collectae
(Sumptibus et typis B.G. Teubneri, 1854)
This edition seems, except for the type on the title-page, identical with the printing I already have from 1884. The back cover seems to indicate that this is an 1857 printing of a book first published in 1854. As I ...
