Lot 90: STOCKDALE, John (1750-1814, publisher).  The Fables of Aesop. With a Life of the Author: and Embellished with one Hundred & twelve Plates. London: John Stockdale, [probably 1793]. 2 volumes, 8vo. Engraved titles with vignettes and plates (titles trimmed with partial loss of imprint, including dates, some spotting). Later purple half calf with pebbled boards (rubbed). Provenance: William James (bookplate). [?]FIRST STOCKDALE EDITION. Bentley Blake 460 (note). Bentley cites a publisher's advertisement in another work which states that the Stockdale Aesop will contain plates by William Blake; however, none, in the present work are signed in the plate by him, so the matter remains one of speculation.
