Three Hundred Aesop's Fables and One Hundred Picture Fables
(Donohue, HenneberryGeorge Routledge & Sons Ltd.,, 1885)
A strange combination of two books bound together. The Three Hundred portion is identical with my Routledge 1885?/1904 edition; both have 114 illustrations, though that one has different full-page illustrations. Townsend ...
(Galley Press, W.H. Smith & Son Limited, 1978)
Here is a very curious book, marked by the cover of a lion reading a fable book in the presence of other animals and a title-page wordless fable of two mules and two piles of fodder. The first curiosity is that I had not ...
The Book of Fables Chiefly from Aesop
(Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company/Cambridge: The Riverside Press, 1882)
I must stop buying this book! I bought this one on a hurried trip through the airport because it is in such excellent condition. See my comments on the various other printings of this book. Stedman's Victorian Poets is ...
De Nieuwe Aesopus. Groot Fabelboek voor Jong en Oud.
(J.B. Wolters, 1880)
Beautiful and copious Griset work, though some turns out dark even in so careful an edition. There seem to be three different kinds of Griset engravings. The fables come from various authors. Curiosities include eyeglasses, ...
The Fables of Aesop as first pr Vol I
(David Nutt, 1889)
Almost no illustrations. Helpful for deciphering Caxton's English. The two volumes from William Allen were early finds, and I have watched them deteriorate on the shelf for thirteen years. How nice now to find a set in ...
The Fables of Aesop as first p Vol II
(David Nutt, 1889)
Contains a good transcription into more readable text of Caxton's version. Helpful for deciphering Caxton's English. The Ryland frontispiece-engraving of Aesop as a shepherd is otherwise unknown to me.
(McLoughlin Brothers Publishers, 1880)
A favorite. The miller and his son shoulder the ass. Six pages of square colored pictures; some colors miss slightly. The verse text (British?) is sometimes at odds with the (American) illustrations, as when the mice ...
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
(John B. Alden, 1883)
Again, I thought I was picking up a good second copy of a book where my first copy may have been in only fair condition. And this book is very close to one that I have listed under the same title and publisher in 1885. ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers, 1904)
This seems to be an exact reprinting of the 1891 version, of which I have a copy. As I mention there, various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). Let ...
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 ...
