      This book was my bible for a month in the summer of 2009 as I prepared a paper for the Renard Society on Boner's Der Edelstein. Actually, I had scanned the facsimile into my computer before I left. Then in Mannheim I ...

      No Author (Edition Libri Illustri Verlag. Ludwigsburg, 1476)
      I never thought we would have a copy of this wonderful book in the collection. From the time I first saw subscriptions being invited, I feared it would always be beyond our means. Prayers do get answered! This is a ...

    • Aesop: Subtyll Historyes and Fables of Esope Westminster 1483 

      Caxton, William (Da Capo Press, Plenum Publishing Corporation. NY, 1483)
      The reproductions are not at all as good as in the Scolar Press edition. The lack of a title page and of more bibliographical information is surprising in so lovely a book.
    • The History and Fables of Aesop 

      Caxton, William (Scolar Press. London, 1484)
      A wonderfully reproduced book. The text can use the help of Jacobs' later reprinting. The 186 woodcuts (many for the life of Esope ) have their own charm but are distinctly inferior to the Ulm woodcuts from which they ...
    • Aesop's Fables in William Caxton's Original Illustrated Edition 

      Aesop; Caxton, William; Gascoigne, Bamber; Gascoigne, Christina (Hamish Hamilton Ltd.. London, 1484)
      This book of 37 fables has two very positive features: the coloring of Caxton's (primitive) woodcuts and the faithful rendition of his text with modern spelling and orthography. Different: the ox also steps on the expanding ...

    • The Medici Aesop 

      Aesop; McTigue, Bernard (Harry N. Abrams. NYNew York, 1488)
      What a treasure! A good introduction gives a concise history of Aesop, the text of the fables, and the illustrations. This hand-written and hand-painted manuscript was done from a printed book, Bono Accurzio's 1480 version ...

      Aesop; McTigue, Bernard (The New York Public Library. NY, 1488)
      This book was published in a hardbound version by Harry N. Abrams in 1989. The lovely illustrations remain as precisely rendered here as there. In a curious move, Adele Westbrook, editor of the hardbound version, is not ...

      Aesop; Avianus; Bracciolini, Poggio,; Cotarelo y Mori, Emilio; Petrus Alfonsi,; Planudes, Maximus,; Rinuccio (Real Academia EspanolaTipografia de archivos. Madrid, 1489)
      Palau calls this tall paperbound folio a magnífica reproducción facsímile (81959). The editors seem not to know of the Toulouse edition of 1488; see my Esopete Ystoriado (Toulouse 1488), published in 1990. Nor do they ...
    • Aesop's Fables: Samuel Croxall's Tran 

      Samuel Croxall's Translation with a Bibliographical Note by Victor Scholderer (Oxford University Press. Oxford, 1518)
      I went after a third copy of this book because it was being offered so economically on eBay. I think it eluded the notice of other serious seekers. Like the first copy I found, this is numbered and signed by Bruce Rogers. ...
