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.
Select Fables of Phaedrus, Edited for the Use of Schools
My biggest question about this little book is How does it relate to Nall's edition in the same series? This book was first published in 1884, while Nall's was first published in 1895. If they are for different levels of ...
Les Fables d'Ésope mises en Français, avec le sens moral en quatre vers, et des figures à chaque fable. Nouvelle édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée de la vie d'Ésope, avec figures, et les quatrains de Benserade, dédiée a la jeunesse
(Chez Dugour, 1798)
This is a lovely old edition. Among its quaint features is that it is dated An VI to reflect the French revolution. It includes a life of Aesop covering 103 pages in twenty-seven chapters, with a rectangular illustration ...
Esope en belle humeur ou l'elite de ses fables enrichies de figures/Esopus bey der Lust
(Johann Christoph KisnerJohann Christoph Kißner, 1729)
Bodemann #88.6 and Fabula Docet #44. I am so lucky to have found this little (3½ x 6) book! Kißner represents the beginning of the bilingual Esope en belle humeur tradition, which will include my 1750 Christian Herold ...
Cent dix-sept Fables d'Esope enrichies d'autant de figures selon l'édition de M.DCC.LXIII
(Au club Français du livre, 1963)
This lovely reproduction in exaggerated portrait format (4¾ x 8½) is a mystery to me. It presents very traditional rectangular illustrations, one for each of the 117 fables. They seem to be signed by I Raymond. But I ...
Aesopi Phrygis Fabulae Nunc demum ex Collatione Optimorum Exemplarium ab infinitis pene Mendis repurgatae una cum nonnullis Variorum Autorum Fabulis adjectis et indice correctiori praefixo
(Typis T. Wood, Impensis Societatis Stationariorum, 1732)
This is a strange little (3½ x 5½) volume to come from England. It follows the structure of many of the earliest little fable editions, beginning with a six-page life of Aesop excerpted or digested from that of Planudes, ...
Les Fables d'Ésope, mis en Français, Avec le sens moral, en quatre vers, à chaque Fable. Tome Premier
(Chez Billois, 1801)
Dédiée à la Jeunesse. Note that I have only the first volume. Not in Bodemann. A charming little book, not least for its few but lovely illustrations. After a word to youth, there is Planudes' life of Aesop, embellished ...

(Charles Scribner, 1853)
The purpose of this singular book is to present one or more anecdotes of a fitting character, as real-life witnesses to the truth of the moral contained in the text (vi). To fulfill this purpose, seventy-five standard ...
Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists. In Three Books
(John Baskervilleprinted by John Baskervlle [sic] for R. and J. Dodsley,, 1764)
This book is a delightful anomaly. It stands directly between my first edition Dodsley from 1761 and my second edition Dodsley from 1764, which lacks the medallion illustrations. This copy is marked 1764 on the title-page ...
