The Book of Fables: Containing Aesop's Fables. Complete, with text based upon Croxall, La Fontaine and L'Estrange. With Copious Additions from other Modern Authors
(John B. Alden, 1883)
Again, I thought I was picking up a good second copy of a book where my first copy may have been in only fair condition. And this book is very close to one that I have listed under the same title and publisher in 1885. ...
De Nieuwe Aesopus. Groot Fabelboek voor Jong en Oud.
(J.B. Wolters, 1880)
Beautiful and copious Griset work, though some turns out dark even in so careful an edition. There seem to be three different kinds of Griset engravings. The fables come from various authors. Curiosities include eyeglasses, ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Revised Version From Original Sources.
(William L. Allison Company, 1884)
A really curious book. Lots of illustrations from various people, including Doré. On 80-81 and 166-7 pictures appear from two different artists for the same story. On 218 there is an illustration without its story. ...
Selections from Aesop's Fables
(D. Lothrop and Company, 1884)
Prose versions followed by Bates' long poetic versions surrounded with art. Might individual pieces have appeared individually in children's magazines? Childe Hassam is the best known illustrator, but his work here on ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable
(George Routledge & Sons, 1883)
This book has the same text as the 1895 title mentioning the same author. However the order of the stories (about one hundred) and of the illustrators is different. This edition has a cock/dog frontispiece and a fox and ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
Aesop's Fables Part I.
(Educational Publishing Company, 1894)
This is a reproduction of the first nine fables of Aesop's Fables (1892) by the same author and publisher. Notice that Aesop represents the first material for the first grade in the five cent classics advertised inside ...
Aesop's Fables, Chiefly from Original
(The Ariel Booklets. NY: The Knickerbocker Press: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1848)
This edition shares identical text and engravings with many others, but in a lovely little leather-bound book with gold leaf and better reproductions. The illustrations are the same but the text, while identical, is set ...
Aesop's Fables in Words of One Syllable.
(A.L. Burt Company Publ.,, 1895)
Two things distinguish this little book: its monosyllables and the mix of drawings. Besides the majority of them, which are taken from Percy Billinghurst, there are several in a different medium and style, most of which ...
(Porter & Coates, 1848)
This book has a different cover from the Porter and Coates Alta edition, but interiorly they are the same. This book is in excellent condition, and the printing here of the Tenniel illustrations is excellent. The book ...
