JBR Collection. A Crow having stolen a piece of cheese from a cottage window, flew with it to a tree that was some way off. A Fox, drawn by the smell of the cheese, came and sat at the foot of the tree, and tried to find some way of making it his. What handsome feathers yours are, to be sure! Perhaps, too, your voice is as sweet as your feathers are fine.

If so, you are really the Queen of Birds. That lesson will well repay you for a bit of cheese. Townsend version. A crow having stolen a bit of meat, perched in a tree and held it in her beak. A Fox, seeing this, longed to possess the meat himself, and by a wily stratagem succeeded. Oh, if her voice were only equal to her beauty, she would deservedly be considered the Queen of Birds! Ah thou blessed bird! This nauseous flattery sets the raven immediately a gaping as wide as ever he could stretch, to give the fox a taste of his pipe; but upon the opening of his mouth, he drops his breakfast, which the fox presently chopt up and then bad him remember, that whatever he had said of his beauty, he had spoken nothing yet of his brains.

Crane Poetry Visual. Corvus et Vulpes Adulatrix. Corvus alicunde caseum rapuerat et cum illo in altam arborem subvolarat. Ita vero e rostro aperto caseus delapsus est, quem vulpes arreptum devoravit. Perry Note: The word "complete" in the graphic at the top of the page is descriptive and not a claim as nobody really knows how many Aesop's Fables exist. Fables are added to the site as they are found in public domain sources.

Fables of Aesop A complete collection of Aesop's Fables. NY: H. Caldwell Company. Fables de Lafontaine. It includes eight full-page colored illustrations, generally in the style of Epinal. Only some portions of these illustrations are colored in. There are, e. The rest is left in black-and-white. The cover is one of the pamphlet's best illustrations.

I have never before seen this fable's lamb using a little pitcher to scoop up water along the shoreline. The poem for the cover's WL is apparently never presented. Each text tends to be on the verso of its illustration. The purple clusters for FG on 10 are visually strong. Individual pages with their headers confirm the reading "Fables de Lafontaine" without a space after the first two letters of the third word.

Fables de La Fontaine.

Aesop's Fables, translated by George Fyler Townsend. Includes a Life of Aesop

This book gets the award for the most lavish cover in my collection. The excellent illustrations raise lots of questions. There seem to be two sets: smaller engravings some marked A. Compare on None of them match Grandville, Griset, Tenniel, or Weir. The best illustrations are of FS 14 and of the lion in love The table on is arranged alphabetically by the first noun in a fable's title.

Here is another case where I thought I was getting a second copy of a book. In this case I went for it because it is beautiful and relatively inexpensive. The copy I had found earlier provoked a question about its illustrators. This copy starts to answer the question, since its only real change from the other is that it now lists Weir on the title page as one of its illustrators. The other version used his illustrations but nowhere acknowledged him. This book still gets an award for the most lavish cover in my collection. See my comments on the earlier find in the adjacent listing.

Printed in Limoges. This pretty but frail book includes one-hundred and thirty-seven numbered fables, with a T of C at the end on Like other such editions, it seems to know nothing of La Fontaine's division of fables into twelve books. The "beaux encadrements" refers to a pleasant repeated red frame around every page, with animals, humans, and vine-like designs.

I have yet to find the promised vignettes. The gravures are signed by Weir and usually engraved by Greenaway. They are thus quite standard. As often with reprintings of Weir's illustrations, especially as here on cheaper paper, they are dark and sometimes less than optimally distinct.

A frontispiece sets four famous fables around a portrait of La Fontaine. Is the fourth, which features a hare, TH? The front cover and endpaper have pasted on them two large cameos, either with the title "An American Detective. This book comes from the son of a baseball pitcher for the Milwaukee Braves whom I revered in my youth. The impressive cover of red and gold is, like the spine, deteriorating.

Trente Dessins par Weir. It has the same frontispiece described below. By contrast with that book, this has thirty full-page illustrations by Weir, and he is acknowledged as the artist here. Most of the illustrations are also signed by Greenaway. Strangely, the book concludes with the end of the eleventh book on What happened to the twelfth book? There is a T of C at the back. The Notice Biographique is two pages long. There are no other additions to the fable texts and illustrations.

The printing of the Weir illustrations is, as often, sometimes dark, though this edition may present them better than most. Monkey, snake, owl, and rats are positioned around him too. It is signed, not by Weir, but by a "Trichon. Em Dupuis. The booklet's cover shows the fox sitting at a tall pitcher, as in FS. It is signed "Em?

The printing here is on normal paper. I am surprised that the pamphlet has lasted this long. They are printed on only one side of the page, the left for the first six and the right for the last six. I have seen these illustrations before, though perhaps not the bicycle image for TH. I wonder if I have not seen them on cards rather than in books. The cover just came off of the book in this reading. Fables for the Young Folks. By Mrs. No illustrator acknowledged. Reprinted from the London Tract Society. Boston: The American Tract Society.

There is nothing from Aesop here, and I would urge that it affects the quality of the book. The fables are long and preachy and not very imaginative. There are a half-dozen illustrations of varying quality. Since both copies are of only fair quality, I will keep both in the collection. La Fontaine. Anonymous gift, August, ' Many of the pages are uncut. There seem to be no selections after Book Nine. The spine is all but gone. La Fontaine: Fables II. Paris: C. Marpon et E. Marbled covers and end-papers. No commentary or illustrations.

About 2" x 3". The binding is unusually tight and well preserved for a book this small and this old. Marpon and Flammarion collaborated also on the Barboutau Florian volumes. La Fontaine: Fables Choisies. Illustrations NA : H. Paris: L. Bodemann There are twenty-eight strong full-page colored illustrations here. Each of them echoes a page in the two volumes of Imagerie Artistique: 20 Fables de La Fontaine and are signed by the same artists. These are not the same works in the two publications, but they are very close.

Could those be some kind of copy or photograph of these? Sometimes the picture here is only a section of the larger poster-like page there, e. And of course there the text is inserted somewhere on the page. The medium here is sharper, the paper stronger and shinier, the format smaller. Manganot's signature is very hard to read on the lovely GA 31 , if in fact that is the correct deciphering.

This illustration is dated ; it is the only one that I can find dated. It is nice to see some things come together! Mistakenly, I think, she says that there are thirty-three fables here. Perhaps she mistakes the five that run over onto the next page. I already have a copy of this book found in for more than six times the cost of this copy. I include this book in the collection not simply because I am so fond of it but also because it has a different number on the bottom right of the last printed page.

Where that copy had , this copy has The cover may also be slightly different: notice the stripes now at the top and bottom. There is a small tear on the bottom of Are these pages even shinier than those? Let me repeat comments from there. Edited, with introduction and notes, by Leon Delbos. NY: Henry Holt and Company. A selection of seventy-eight fables for English-readers. Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of this book for us today lies in the way Delbos starts the book.

He was not kind, modest, simple, careful, moral, or sensitive to children. His style is matchless. Russian literature: Krylov's fables Russian. Petersburg: Cheap Library: Association A. Suvorin: New Time. Borissov, Tallinn, Estonia, through eBay, August, ' With a biography and notes. This number seems to range between twenty-seven and thirty-five. There are also fifteen illustrations within the text of the fables, starting from a good FC 2. Some pictures have been colored in a bit, and is that an angry doodle on the bottom of ?

Apparently there is a life of Krylov and an AI at the back. With Copious Additions from other Modern Authors. NY: F. This edition seems a standard Lupton edition, with its "Later Fables" beginning on Compare it with my Lupton copies under ? The big surprise in this copy comes when one pages through and finds no illustrations at all! Were they removed, or may there be a printer's oversight at work here? In still other respects, this is a non-frills version. It lacks the preface, T of C, and AI that other editions include. The book is inscribed in With copious additions from other modern authors.

Profusely illustrated by Ernest Griset. NY: Hurst and Co. Like the adjacent listing from Lupton, this unusual book claims to have art but has none at all! It is paginated and has in fact the same plates as my Hurst Arlington editions listed under "? As with the Arlington and other copies somewhere in the "Rundell" text tradition, there is a set of "Later Fables" beginning on This book is inscribed in The Fables of Aesop.

Selected from the Most Reliable Sources. NY: A. Gift of Thomas Beckman, March, ' A wonderfully curious gift. As Tom points out, the book starts with a nice cover design modelled on Heighway's "The Fisher and the Little Fish" with the addition of a background including modern ships. Adding things will be the keynote to this book. For it takes most basically the frequently-used text of moral-less fables that I have first in The Book of Fables and adds to it a few of Jacobs' texts, many of Jacobs' morals, and many of Heighway's illustrations--none of these acknowledged. The colored frontispiece unfortunately separated of a bagpiping fisherman is developed from Heighway's illustration e.

Jacobs' version, used here, makes more sense of this baffling fable than most by having one fish give a moral "When you are in a man's power you must do as he bids you. Fifteen full-page Heighway illustrations, each with blank verso, are inserted outside the text's pagination. At the book, like The Book of Fables, moves to "Later Fables"; unlike it, it does not acknowledge the addition on the title-page. This book selects 52 of the fables offered there and inserts three , , of Ernest Griset's thirty-nine illustrations used there.

Close comparison with the Book of Fables, where this illustration is the frontispiece, shows that the Burt book's image has been cropped to remove Griset's signature. There are slight cracks in the binding at and This book has really been fun to investigate! With Seventy-five Illustrations. Newark: Charles E. This book drives me crazy because it seems to be composed of things I have seen before.

The frontispiece is a colored picture the book's only one of a wolf and a lamb, and I know I have seen it elsewhere. The top of the opening AI is from Heighway, and almost all of the illustrations are from Billinghurst, many of them crayoned in poorly by a young hand.

Even the camel on and the stork on are done after Billinghurst. The versions are very frequently but not always from the standard "J. This book replicates another, listed under , except for the cover. I will repeat comments from that description. Poor condition. This is a page pamphlet slightly smaller than those in McLoughlin's "Aunt Louisa" series. It features six full-page chromolithographs. The fox entices the baby owl first onto the branch and then the ground and devours him.

In revenge, the parent owl summons the hunter and his dogs to chase down the fox. Mostly simple verse, with a few prose passages. The resewn? By the Rev. Fyler Townsend. With Fifty Illustrations by Harrison Weir. This is a forerunner of the modern paperback book. Is it equivalent to a "railroad book"? It contains the full "Three Hundred Aesop's Fables" edition by Townsend and Weir, complete with the opening picture of an older man near ships' masts talking to a younger man near some stairs.

I have at least five other editions of this combination of three hundred fables and fifty illustrations. The closest to this little edition is a Routledge edition listed under "? That Routledge edition, at least in its present condition, lacks the opening picture and follows different pagination; for examples, fables there begin on 9 and here on The first and last pages here, which serve as front and back cover respectively, are loose. There are advertisements for Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup on the obverse of the title-page and on the back cover. This was a surprising find on eBay, and the price was right!

Three Hundred Aesop's Fables. And One Hundred Picture Fables with Rhymes bound behind it without acknowledgement at the book's beginning. Literally Translated from the Greek by the Rev. Tyler sic Townsend. With woodcuts designed by Harrison Weir and ten original colored plates. Caldwell's Juvenile Classics. Rear title page continues: by Otto Speckter. See ? George Fyler Townsend, M. With one hundred and fourteen illustrations designed by Harrison Weir and engraved by J. London: George Routledge and Sons. Toy Books. No bibliographical information.

Ten toy books sewn together, perhaps as a salesman's sample? The ten books betray a heavy Protestant moralizing ethic. Each of the ten books has about six full-page illustrations in very good condition. The illustrations seem very well preserved. There are lovely marbled endpapers and gilt edges all the way around. Loose covers, damaged spine. All pages are printed on just one side. With one hundred and thirty-five illustrations by Ernest Griset. 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 ? That same illustration was the cover illustration in the ? McLoughlin version. The present edition claims eight fewer illustrations than that ? This edition prints Rundell's usual preface but omits the "J. The book has some strong markings from a child's hand, especially in pencil on the title page. The cover is a masterpiece in itself, with the turtle holding his boots in his hand, so as not to awaken the sleeping hare. NY: McLoughlin Bros. A magnificent large-format booklet. The six colored single-page pieces are breathtaking!

In particular, the booklet makes great use of human clothes on its animals. Perhaps the most intriguing story and illustration is "The Cat's Paw" on the last page: the monkey coaxes the cat to help him but also physically takes the cat's paw and forces the cat despite shrieks of pain. The ass in a lion's skin is perhaps visually the best I have encountered. He is discovered by two lions who notice his strange ears. Significant staining.

What a lucky find! By Elizabeth Eyears. Fully Illustrated by H. Weir and by C. Butterworth, neither acknowledged. Printed in London. London: Elliot Stock. This is a slim book containing fifty-one verse fables on 99 pages. I had never seen nor heard of the book before, and so was willing to spend some money on it. In her three-page preface, Eyears chooses verse because it attracts the young, is learned faster, and is fastened better in the memory.

She returns to the popular image of putting familiar things into new garb. Her criterion of selection? She does well to start with "Aesop at Play" 1. I had never seen this clever distinction between the jumps before. The lesson of GGE 26 is "Let well alone. I read the first half of the book. My sense is that the need to rhyme and to fill out the meter exacts a serious price in these fables. I find especially the full-page Weir illustrations 5, 17, and 43 well done. Weir did some of the smaller illustrations, and I find "C.

Butterworth" on two others. Edidit F. Leipzig: B. This paperbound little volume reproduces what I already have listed for Schneidewin's Babrius under " Note the same date at the end of the introduction xx. Various illustrators, including Boutet de Monvel unacknowledged for Aesop. NY: Schwartz, Kirwin and Fauss. So Catholic a book! There are stories on St. Dominic and the rosary. Chicago: The John C. Winston Company. The book pulls together very diverse materials. Most frequent among them are rhymes of all sorts. Crane is illustrator for relatively little in the book, which may be of interest historically because of all the different simple designs that are included.

In all these cases one full-design square and one half-design of Crane's are put together to fill out the page. This 6" x 9" booklet has stood the test of time well. Its cover still has a bright pink cameo of a classical scene nicely set in an ornate green background. Inside there are eleven fables presented in attractive, clear print. Three of the longer stories come from Andersen.

Also from Andersen is "The Ugly Duckling. It is curious that the list of Four Penny Classics on the inside back cover lists this number as "Fables and Stories. Published in Illinois, it was read in Indiana, sold in Ohio, delivered in California, and will reside in Nebraska. Not bad for a second-and-third grade reader! Collected and translated by Walter Skeat. Illustrated by F. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. This book presents twenty-six good peasant tales collected during a Cambridge expedition through the remoter states of the Malay Peninsula in A T of C and a list of the ten illustrations precede the introduction at the beginning of the book.

A caught bird promises, if freed, to bring the birdcatcher a valuable stone as big as a coconut. Freed, he mocks the birdcatcher for believing such a preposterous story. The next table echoes another well-known Western fable with changed characters. The crown prince of tigers recommends to the sick king of tigers to taste flesh of every creature in his kingdom. The mouse-deer, who is the hero of many Malaysian folktales, stays away.

When he appears and the king is angry with him, he reports a dream of medicine that will cure the king. The savior in this story is again a mouse-deer. The ten illustrations are helpful. Even better rendered are the tailpiece silhouettes of Malaysian creatures. Illustrations par K. Many engravings are signed "Sargent. Cardboard covers. Tours: Alfred Mame et Fils. Jean-Baptist Oudry. The specialty of this broken little volume is the full-page reproduction of 76 of Jean-Baptist Oudry's illustrations. The book has a surprising organization. It is divided into thirds, with a list of illustrations and their page numbers at the beginning of each third ; ; There is a T of C of all 75 fables at the end of the volume.

A first illustration before the first third of the book offers Oudry's frontispiece of Aesop honoring La Fontaine. After the title-page is a full-page portrait of La Fontaine. Some of the Oudry illustrations are marked with a Roman numeral number, which seems not to be the number of the fable here and is certainly not the number in La Fontaine's twelve books of fables. Both covers are separated, as is the first signature. The choice of illustrations to present is good and the reproduction is, for the size of the pages, better than adequate.

Edited by L. Fifth edition. Paris: Librairie Armand Colin. Here is a quite standard full edition of La Fontaine for students, with introduction, notes, grammar, and dictionary of terms from La Fontaine's era. Armand Colin seems to have published a number of La Fontaine fable editions in which fables were classified according to the order of their difficulty above each fable, but this is not one of those. The source, however, of each fable is listed just after its title. AI at the back, followed by a T of C that does not go deeper than the titles of the twelve books of fables.

Josephine Dodge Daskam. Each is titled "The Woman Who The morals are cute. Clyde J. Sixty-ninth thousand. NY: R. My fifth Ade, and maybe the best, starting from the nattily clad ass reading on the cover. Ade here covers a wide range: European travel, marriage rituals, poker games, big city and little town.

His staple is "girl hooks man," followed by "man tries to deal with wife. My favorite: "Wise Piker" Great language: "The Cousin from Down East" Collected and Edited by P. Ramaswami Raju. With 18 Plates by F. Carruthers Gould. Second edition. There are fables here, few of which seem to come from the usual Indian sources: "Panchatantra" and "Kalila and Dimna. Frequently the moral is delivered within the fable as an endomythium, pronounced by one of the characters.

I have read the first ten of the fables. In the very first, a glow-worm about to be eaten by a daw asks if the daw would rather not eat all of the glow-worms. She proceeds to lead him to a fire to encourage him to eat the glow-worms emerging from the fire. The daw does, only of course to burn his mouth.

This book reduplicates editions I already have listed under and It was already then a derivative but lovely book. Its eighty-one gravures from the eighteenth century "La Fontaine en Estampes" seem to be mostly details from Oudry. That is certainly the case on 9 DW and 59 SS. They suffer only from their relatively small size of 2. The covers are part marble and part leather.

The leather on the spine and at the top of the covers is rubbing off. AI at the back. The preface mentions that, to help the child maintain interest, the larger part of stories in this book consists of myth, legend, fable, biography, and fairy tale. There certainly are many fables included. The Swedish chemist and businessman Alfred Nobel made important discoveries in explosives, including the invention of dynamite in His products made it easier for workers to blast rock, drill tunnels, build canals, and perform many other types of construction work.

After his death, Nobel dedicated most of his substantial estate for the establishment of the Nobel prizes, which are among the most prestigious awards given to scientists and peacemakers today. Benjamin Franklin's life was remarkable. From humble origins, he rose to become one of the most well-known and popular figures in North America and Europe during the eighteenth century. During his life Franklin developed an extraordinary range of interests. His contributions to science include major discoveries in electricity and oceanography, but his activities as a businessman, publisher and writer, philosopher, and statesman are equally important to produce a complete picture of his life.

His observations during this voyage led Darwin to eventually conclude that all species of plant and animal life have slowly evolved over thousands of years, adapting themselves to their environment by a process of natural selection. This book tells the story of Darwin's life, detailing the findings and events that led him to develop his groundbreaking and controversial ideas on biology and geology.

The Italian scientist Galileo Galilei is remembered today as a genius who, in the early seventeenth century, produced revolutionary developments and innovations in astronomy and physics that contributed greatly to the human understanding of how the world works. However, during his lifetime Galileo suffered persecution because his ideas were offensive to the religious leaders of his times. During the nineteenth century, an Austrian friar named Gregor Mendel discovered that invisible factors, now called genes, determined the traits of an organism.

Mendel found that certain traits passed down from parents were either dominant or recessive, and that patterns of trait inheritance could be reliably predicted. His work was little noticed until the early twentieth century, when other scientists, working independently, replicated his work. Mendel's life and accomplishments are detailed in this book. The universal law of gravitation developed by Isaac Newton was one of the most amazing scientific discoveries of modern times. His theories about the universe, published in , would help humans to better understand how the world works.

Newton's revolutionary method of mathematical calculation, which he called calculus, made many subsequent major scientific discoveries possible. This book tells the story of Newton's scientific discoveries in many fields. Leonardo da Vinci was a great painter of the Italian Renaissance period, known for such iconic works as the Mona Lisa portrait and the Last Supper fresco. Yet Leonardo was a true Renaissance Man, who made important contributions to human knowledge as a scientist and inventor.

He conducted numerous carefully planned experiments, and produced extensive drawings and notes on human anatomy, as well as on fantastic inventions. Leonardo's rich life and numerous accomplishments are detailed in this book. The French scientist Louis Pasteur made important contributions to chemistry and microbiology.

His studies of microbes, which he called germs, helped people to understand the cause of decay in food. Pasteur made important contributions to the alcohol and silk industries, but he is perhaps best known for creating lifesaving vaccines against deadly illnesses, including anthrax, cholera, and rabies. Thomas Alva Edison was one of the most creative inventors in the history of mankind. His inventions-including systems for electric lighting, improvements to communication technology, and devices for recording and replaying sounds and movies-shaped the modern world.

A tireless worker who often spent up to twenty hours a day at work, he made invention a commercial proposition, setting up the world's first industrial research laboratory. This book describes Edison's accomplishments and his legacy. Technology breakthroughs change history and society when they happen, and they are happening at a faster pace than ever.

Engineering is a top career field but differentiating between one engineering discipline and another is not always easy.

The Careers in Engineering series provides easy-to-use guides for teens who are trying to understand the differences between various engineering careers and which of these careers might match their interests, skills, and talents. Each book focuses a single discipline, such as biomedical engineering or electrical engineering, among others. Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest-growing areas of engineering, with new specialized sub-fields emerging all the time.

Biomedical engineers can find jobs in private industry, colleges and universities, health care facilities, and government agencies. What the job entails, what it pays, and future prospects are discussed along with insights from industry insiders. Men and women interested in designing and building bridges, ships, highways, dams, airports, or other large-scale projects people use every day can find nearly endless opportunities in civil engineering.

A civil engineering career can take you to the top of a skyscraper, to the middle of the ocean, to an underground tunnel, and to one day, perhaps, a colony on Mars. Computer engineers founded some of the world's most successful Internet companies including Facebook and Amazon. Others in the computer engineering field earn six-figure salaries at Intel, Apple, and other leading tech firms. What the job entails, what it pays, and future prospects for computer engineers are discussed along with insights from industry insiders. Electrical engineers work on any number of products, from small pocket devices to the largest of supercomputers.

And because they work in so many different industries, electrical engineering offers enormous potential for the future. Environmental engineers use chemistry, biology, and other sciences to mitigate the impact of human activities on the environment. Those who work as environmental engineers are in high demand wherever pollution is a problem. What the job entails, what it pays, and future prospects for environmental engineers are discussed along with insights from industry insiders.

A mechanical engineer has a wide breadth of opportunities including designing the latest vehicles, improving manufacturing processes, and creating prosthetic limbs. Mechanical engineers are involved in products and systems from design to implementation. Building trade workers play a major role in the success of economies throughout the world. However, despite their pivotal role in our society, only six percent of students consider a career in the trades.

Robert Henryson, The Complete Works: Fables

That's surprising because trades workers are the most in-demand occupational field in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Salaries for some trades careers are higher than the average earnings for some occupations that require a bachelor's or graduate degree.
