A Novel Journal: Aesop's Fables
(Peter Norton: Printers Row Publishing Group, 2016)
"Here is a first! This is indeed a journal for writing one's thoughts and experiences. The tiny lines in the journal are Aesop's fables. As an advertising slip proclaims, "The journal lines are the novel (in teeny, tiny ...
(McLoughlin Brothers, 1901)
This edition stands out from others by Griset from McLoughlin in that it gives its own date (on a rock in the cover illustration). It has the lovely colored TMCM frontispiece one can find in both 1900? editions from ...
The Fables of Aesop (small format)
(Illustrated Editions Co., 1857)
I cannot believe that I have found yet another different format of a Bennett edition! This one is almost identical with the 1857/1931 edition by World Publishing in Cleveland. It thus has a small format and thin pages. ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Revised Version From Original Sources.
(Worthington Company, 1887)
Almost identical with the 1884 Allison edition. This book has a different cover and no gilt edges. See my extensive comments there. The next in this tradition then is the thinner Phoenix edition of 1892. I think this ...
(Franklin Watts, 1968)
An old Library of Congress book that was never taken out once and so is in excellent condition. Vastly superior in its illustrations to the Avenel facsimile (1975?). This is not a facsimile, for it omits the illustration ...

(Porter & Coates, 1848)
The best runs I have seen yet of the Tenniel illustrations. It is unfortunate that there are only fifty of them here. The book is in great condition and even has a place-marking ribbon! The illustrations are listed on ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Schocken Books, 1894)
This may be the best single simple edition of Aesop I know. Heighway is a wonderful illustrator. This edition presents the engravings quite crisply.
Aesop's Fables (with 16 colour plates)
(Ward Lock & Co.,, 1924)
Once again I thought I was buying an extra of a book I already had. This edition has fewer illustrations, in fact one-third of the number in the other edition from Ward and Lock. It is in excellent condition. The texts ...
(Octopus Books, Ltd., 1980)
This book uses Pavlin and Seda's nice art work from Brown and Watson's 1975 book of the same name but replaces the earlier edition's poetry with a brand new prose text, even changing the name of the first fable from The ...
