    • Fables Original and Selected 

      Bussey, George Moir (D. Appleton & CO. NYNew York, 1869)
      This book reproduces completely, as far as I can tell, the edition I have listed under 1863. There is still a Presented To . . . and From . . . page just after the title-page. Book I's insignia page here comes before, ...
    • Fables Original and Selected 

      Bussey, George Moir (Willoughby & Co.. London, 1842)
      This somewhat-the-worse-for-wear book represents a real find on Jerry's part. It uses exactly the same plates as my fancy hand-colored 1842 edition. So it has the same 497 fables from some thirty-two fabulists, named ...

      Bussey, George Moir; Grandville, J. J (D. Appleton & CO. NY, 1863)

    • Fables Original and Selected by the Most Esteemed European and Oriental Authors 

      Bussey, George Moir (Charles Tilt. London, 1839)
      I have worked my way back to what I believe is the original edition of this book. I have it otherwise in editions listed under 1842, 1842?, 1863, and 1869. The former two were published by Willoughby (the printer here) ...
    • Fables Original and Selected by the Most Esteemed European and Oriental Authors 

      Bussey, George Moir (Willoughby & Co.. London, 1842)

    • A Treasure House of Fables Instructive and Entertaining 

      Bussey, George Moir (Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co./Thomas D. Morison. London/Glasgow, 1860)
      Here is a fascinating knockoff of the earlier and lovelier Fables Original and Selected, published by Willoughby in 1842. This book lists on its title-page the authors from whom texts are being taken. It turns out to be ...
