Fables: La Fontaine: Tome 2
Only the cover and later printing date seem to distinguish this printing from that of 1964. See my comments there.
Nouvelle Methode pour Apprendre le Lingue Latine, Tome Second
(Veuve Robinot et Babuty Fils, 1759)
Note that the first of this two-volume set was published in 1756. This second volume spends 328 pages on a questionable task. Each word of the thirty fables of the first book of Phaedrus is thoroughly parsed and construed. ...
Select Fables with cuts, designed and engraved by Thomas and John Bewick, and others, previous to the year 1784: together with a Memoir; and a descriptive Catalogue of the works of Messrs. Bewick
(Baldwin Cradock, and Joy,Printed by S. Hodgson for Emerson Charnley et al, 1820)
One of the stars of my collection. See my comments on the 1975 facsimile. Excellent wood engravings here in a book I am thrilled to have found. After seeing reprints, it is so wonderful to see the original! Some pencil ...

(Printed for J. and F. Rivington W. Strahan, T. Caslon, S. Crowder...,Printed for J. and F. Rivington, W. Strahan, et al, 1775)
Bodemann #126.3. This book may set the record for the longest subtitle: An Ancient Indian Philosopher. Containing a Number of Excellent Rules for the Conduct of Persons of all Ages, and in all Stations: Under several ...
Little Fables for Little Folks
(John Van Voorst, 1835)
This is one of those little books with a long sub-title: Selected for their moral tendency and re-written in familiar words, not one of which exceeds two syllables; designed as reading lessons to amuse and instruct. There ...
The Old-Fashioned Children's Storybook
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1979)
A charming little book. For the first time, I have some illustrations by Boutet de Monvel. Unfortunately, they come out the poorest of the illustrations here! Aesop/LaFontaine are represented by MM, OF, and TH, each of ...
(Choun Publishing, 1982)
Forty fables with simple illustrations (the same used as cover art in other Choun editions of 1980/88 and 1988). The text, the art, and the typeset differ in the first twenty and the last twenty fables. Many in the first ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean Bilingual]
(Sam Joong Dang Publications Co. Ltd.Samjungdang, 1987)
A nicely produced paperback. T of C at the beginning. Ninety-seven fables. Some fables have morals, while others do not. I thought the T of C and texts might be lifted from a normal English edition, but inspection ...
Old Man and His Ass
(Yorkshire J.S. Publishing & Stationery Co. Ltd., 1850)
Here is an exquisite chapbook 4 x 6¾ with MSA in rhyme, specifically a sestet on every page. The treasure of this little book lies, I believe, in the four of its eight wood engravings that have the original hand coloring. ...
Hundert Fabeln nach Aesop und den grössten Fabeldichtern aller Zeiten, Zweiter Theil
(Carl Kühn, 1844)
Beautifully inscribed in 1844. Apparently not in Bodemann. 4¼ x 6¾. I have only Part I of two parts. Thus this book handles only fifty fables, listed in a beginning T of C. It handles them in lovely fashion! The ...
