Carlson Fable Collection Catalogues

1989 Aesop: A Fable Collection. Rev. Gregory I. Carlson, S.J. Paperbound. Omaha: Creighton University.

Here is an early, perhaps even the first, of the printed catalogues for this collection. It encompasses 153 pages. The book, spiral bound, may well have been something of a Christmas present for friends. It contains about 744 books. This version includes the database of the collection at the book's end. It has a yellow cover with black printing.

1990 Aesop: A Fable Collection. Rev. Gregory I. Carlson, S.J. Second edition. Paperbound. Omaha: Creighton University. July, '90.

Here is second edition of the printed catalogue for this collection. It encompasses 175 pages. It contains 856 books, and the average cost of them was under $7.50. This version dropped the illustrations included from the Ulm Aesop in the first edition. This book has a green cover with black printing.

1991 Aesop: A Fable Collection.  Rev. Gregory I. Carlson, S.J.  Fourth edition.  Paperbound.  Omaha:  Creighton University.  $15 from siberiandogs through eBay, Oct., '17. 

Here is fourth edition of the printed catalogue for this collection.  It encompasses 195 pages.  It contains 957 books, and the average cost of them was about $7.50.  This book has a blue cover with black printing.  This edition was lacking when I gathered together old catalogues to put them into the collection.  Imagine, then, my surprise when it showed up on eBay.  Cast your bread upon the waters, and it will return to you!

1991 Aesop: A Fable Collection. Rev. Gregory I. Carlson, S.J. Sixth edition. Paperbound. Washington, D.C.: Georgetown University.

Here is the second-to-last last of my printed catalogues for this collection. It encompasses 258 pages. At this point there were 1107 books in the collection, and the average cost of the books was $9.03. The book, spiral bound, was produced with the generous help of Georgetown University in conjunction with the lecture I gave as the holder of the Jesuit Chair. This was the last version to include the database of the collection at the book's end. It has a blue cover with black printing and a white background for the woodcut of Aesop.

1994 Aesop: A Fable Collection. Rev. Gregory I. Carlson, S.J. Seventh edition. Paperbound. Omaha: Creighton University. Oct., '94.

Here is the seventh and last of my printed catalogues for this collection. It encompasses 434 pages and expands the sixth edition from November, 1991. At this point there were 1907 books in the collection, and the average cost of the books was $11.39. The book, spiral bound, was produced with the generous help of the Graduate School of Creighton University and its dean, Michael G. Lawler. It has a gray cover with blue printing.
