Schoene Fabeln des Altertums
(Dieterich'sche VerlagsbuchhandlungDieterich'schen Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1954)
Compare with the later editions under 1955/84. By contrast this edition has Anmerkungen instead of Erläuterungen and names Horst Gasse as Dr. in the T of C (100). Though the pagination is the same, the plates are ...
Tesoro de Fábulas: Esopo, La Fontaine, Samaniego, Iriarte y Otros

The Fables of Aesop as first printed by William Caxton in 1484 with those of Avian, Alfonso, and Poggio, now again edited and induced by Joseph Jacobs.
(Burt Franklin, 1889)
The Same as Volume 1 of the David Nutt entry. Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). I am eager to try some of Jacobs' scholarship. There is a wonderful pedigree of Caxton's Aesop facing 1.
Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists. In Three Books
(John Baskervilleprinted by John Baskervlle [sic] for R. and J. Dodsley,, 1764)
This book is a delightful anomaly. It stands directly between my first edition Dodsley from 1761 and my second edition Dodsley from 1764, which lacks the medallion illustrations. This copy is marked 1764 on the title-page ...
