Aesopi Phrygis Fabulae Elegantissimis iconibus veras animalium species ad viuum adumbrantibus
(apud Ioannem Tornaesium, 1570)
Here is a precious addition to the collection, both for its antiquity and its excellent condition. The one shortcoming of its condition is that the title-page seems to be a xerox copy. As Bodemann #29.2, it fits into ...
Aesop's Fables: Samuel Croxall's Tran
(Limited Editions ClubOxford University Press, 1518)
I went after a second copy of this book because it was being offered so economically on eBay. I think it eluded the notice of other serious seekers. This copy includes from August, 1933, The Monthly Letter of the Limited ...
The Moral Fables of Robert Henryson
(The Maitland Club, 1570)
A lovely old book, the cover of which is in bad shape. This is not a facsimile but a reprint, and so the print is much more legible than in the Da Capo edition. The morals are printed in contemporary script. T of C near ...
Aesop: The Morall Fabillis of Esope the Phrygian
(Da Capo Press: Plenum Pulbishing, 1570)
This is a facsimile of the 13 fables in this very early collection. Seven-line stanzas, medium print quality, difficult vocabulary and orthography.
Fabeln von Erasmus Alberus
(Greif BuechereiGreif-Bücherei, 1550)
Good strong rhymes in Gothic script. The Nachwort is real Third Reich stuff, speaking of eine Rückkehr zu den Urkraftquellen deutschen Volkstums. The stories are all Aesopic. There are wonderful woodcuts (which ...
Esopo No Fabulas
(Benseisha Co., 1593)
Fr. Francis Mathy was good enough to order this for me after we found out in our conversation with Satoru Obara, S.J., that this facsimile was still in print. Obara reports on this booklet in his little monograph, Companions ...
Aesopi Phrygis Fabulae elegantissimis Eiconibus Veras Animalium Species ad vivum adumbrantes
(Apud Joannem Tornaesium, 1570)
Here is one of the treasures of this collection. The title-page seems to be a photocopy, hopefully from the same edition.
The Moral Fables of Aesop by Robert Henryson
(Scottish Academic PressUniv. of Notre Dame Press, 1571)
A first-rate piece of scholarship that puts Henryson within our reach. Very readable versions of the 13 fables. Henryson's morals are strongly allegorical and (like the fables) lengthy, but the stories are well done, ...
(Philippe Galle, Christophorus Plantinus/George Ladias Limited, 1579)
This may be the first true emblem book in this collection, and it is high time. This is a fine example. Bodemann (51.1) may be slightly incorrect when it gives the sequence for each of these 125 fables. On the left page ...
(Christian Wechel/Wissenschaftliche BuchgesellschaftWissenschaftliche Buchgeselschaft, 1542)
This is my first chance to look more carefully into Alciato. This volume itself is one of many good books I found at Wirthwein. I had not known that the Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft had done a reprint of Alciato's ...
