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. ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1902)
Quite similar to the Arlington Edition (1899?), except for rearrangement and different spellings in titles. A note added to the editor's preface indicates the addition of 130 fables not in the first and second editions. ...
A Book of Fables
(Royle Publications Ltd.,, 1950)
A sideways pamphlet of fifteen fables alternating black-and-white and colored pairs of pages. Some fascinating and different details: A boy scout chides the son for riding the donkey. The old man tips the donkey into a ...
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 ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Dorset Press, 1975)
This is a clear, crisp reprinting -- with almost no margins -- of Gambit's great book of 1975. The illustrations are still wonderful! As I wrote there, this is probably my favorite among all the books I have. Levine ...
Aesop's Fables in Irish--Parts I to V
(The Irish Book Company, 1909)
Fifty fables and a vocabulary that stretches almost longer than the fables! Sorry. Since I cannot read this text, I do not have much more to say!
