(Impensis B. Law: Prostant Venales Apud C. Lawimpensis B. Law: protestant venales apud C. Law, 1798)
Here are one hundred and thirty-two prose fables in Latin. The book is meant as a device for teaching Latin. The author devotes a page to Properties of the Parts of Speech and another to Rules for Construing--both in ...
Jack and Jill
(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895)
This book represents a great find on a lightning shopping visit over the lunch break of a Jesuit meeting. The book is in terrible condition, with virtually no spine left at all and all the pages loose. This curious book ...
The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables.
(John B. Alden, 1885)
This book's closest relative is the edition by the same name in 1880 from the American Book Exchange. See my comments there. Its other close relative is the Arlington Edition by Hurst which I have listed under 1899?. ...
Fabulous Fables: Using Fables with Children.
(Good Year BooksScott Foresman: Harper Collins, 1991)

Fabulas: Desenhos de Wiese

Famous Fables in Modern Verse

Good graphics for the fifteen fables in a nice small book.
Aesop: Subtyll Historyes and Fables of Esope Westminster 1483
(Da Capo Press, Plenum Publishing Corporation, 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.
