Esops Fabler Fritt Berattade efter LaFontaine, Rundell, Binder M. Fl.
(C & E. Gernandts For̈lags-AktiebolagC. & E. Gernandts Forlags-Aktiebolag, 1895)
A beautiful book with a surprising number of Griset illustrations, which seem to be of two types (see 99 for the two types on one page.) These etchings are done in different colors. Notice the three wolves jumping for ...
The Fables of Aesop with a Life of the Author.
(John W. Lovell Co., 1865)
One illustration per story, noble rather than imaginative. The applications are often longer than the fables!
Aesop's Fables Together with the Life of Aesop.
(Rand McNally, 1897)
This was one of the first books in my collection. I have come back to look at it again after reviewing a number of Dodsley editions, including the first in 1761 and Crukshank's in 1798. See my comments on those two books. ...
Stepping Stones to Literature: A Second Reader.
(Silver Burdett,, 1897)
Aesop's fables are the backbone of this classroom reader: some twenty-eight are presented. The maid (22) carried eggs rather than milk! And She counted her chickens before they were hatched! The book is enhanced ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
Uncle Frank's Select Fables for Good Boys and Girls II: The Thief and the Dog.
(Wm. H. Murphy printer and publisher, Franklin Bookstore, 384 Pearl Street,, 1851)
Second of six volumes, with pages numbered consecutively (here 35-68). Twenty-five fables. The organizing principle seems to be the illustration on every right hand page. Small fables are filled in to complete the ...
Uncle Frank's Select Fables for Good Boys and Girls III: The Fir and the Bramble.
(Wm. H. Murphy, 1851)
Third of six volumes, with pages numbered consecutively (here 69-102). Twenty-five fables. Here we have The Dove and the Bee (99) instead of The Ant and the Pigeon. The organizing principle seems to be the ...
(Robert B. Collins, 1848)
Each of these seems a larger edition of my 1848/48? edition by a firm that somehow either included or excluded a brother! The address is also changed. The red and black covers of these beautiful books add gold to the ...
Queer Stories for Boys and Girls
(Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884)
This little collection of stories written for juvenile publications contains a last section of Modern Fables (177-86). The section contains three didactic, pointed animal stories. Do not miss the author's frustrated ...
Fables in Verse
(Martha F. Thompson, 1888)
A large pamphlet in very delicate condition. There are seventeen fables on twenty-eight pages in padded verse for children. The paper covers are loose. No T of C or index. Reading these fables, I am reminded of Linda ...
