Bennett's Fables from Aesop and Others
(Viking Press, 1857)
Here is a third copy of this book. 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 ...
Chwedlau neu Ddammegion Aesop
(Hughes and Son, 1870)
Here is an extra copy of this book with a brown, rather than green, cloth cover. What a wonderful little treasure. The first book has a frontispiece of Aesop holding a scroll sitting in the countryside surrounded by ...
Some of Aesop's Fables with Modern Instances
(MacMillan and Co., 1883)
Here is a first extra copy of two. This copy is in good condition. The engravings of Caldecott's drawings are here of course in black-and-white, and they are excellent! I just showed a number of these in class yesterday! ...
Fables of Aesop and others
(T.O.H.P. Burnham, 1863)

(New York Publishing Company, 1895)

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 ...
The Fables of Aesop with Designs on Wood
(Paddington Press Ltd: Two Continents Publishing Group, 1818)
A fascinating book which deserves a good deal of study. The reproductions seem quite good. The tail-pieces, little pictures after each fable, are particularly fascinating. Some come back on the fable. A valuable book, ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables Literally Translated from the Greek (And One Hundred Picture Fables with Rhymes)
(George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
Here is an extra copy of this book. This is a double book, though the original title-page makes no mention of the second volume that is bound with it. Compare with a Donohue, Henneberry edition by the same title (1885?) ...
(M.A. Donohue, 1885)
Identical with the various editions of Three Hundred and Fifty Aesop's Fables. Better paper. Better illustrations. No pages missing. Advertisements in the back. I will keep it in the collection.
