Fables de La Fontaine
(Avallon. Comynet, Imprimeur-Librairie, 1835)
A small book of the complete fables in contemporary marbled boards. Its special feature is four pages of six square wood engravings each (frontispiece and facing 40, 90, 114). It would be a delight to track down the ...
Fables de La Fontaine classées par Ordre de Difficulté avec Notice en Tète de chaque Fable et notes
(Librairie Armand Colin, 1920)
Here is a later copy of a very curious book that I already have in its thirtieth edition from 1916. It classifies and organizes La Fontaine's fables in three levels: suitable for little children, moderately difficult, ...
La Fontaine Masallari: Fransiz Masallari
(Inkilap ve Akaİnkilâp ve Aka Kitabevleri, 1981)
This 96-page paperback book is virtually identical with a copy I received as a gift from Greg Schissel five years earlier. The differences I note are two. There is no pre-title page here with a monkey illustration. And ...
Fablio the Magician: The Frog and the Ox, Adapted from La Fontaine's Fable
(R.L. Cavallere Ltd., Londondistributed by David Gold & Son (Holdings) Ltd., 1969)

Fables de La Fontaine (Premiere et Deuxième Partie)
(Jules Tallandier, 1906)
This looks at first acquaintance like the complete Rabier LaFontaine. A closer look reveals that it is a combination of the first and second of three parts. Ironically, those are the two independent parts that I already ...
La Fontaine'den Secmeler
(Ergun Yayinlari, 1999)
The cover of this 96-page paperback sports a colored picture of lion, tiger, monkeys, and mouse enjoying themselves. Morals, which appear frequently, seem to be offset and printed in bold. I find five full-page illustrations ...

My, Romain Simon illustrated many different books! This is a 28-page oversized (9 x 12½) children's book. There are eleven fables in all, each allotted one to three pages. At least five of them are included somehow in ...
La Fontaine's Fables in Modern Clothes.
(Todd & Honeywell, 1985)
This book fills the need for simple English prose versions of LaFontaine for children. About one-half of LaFontaine's fables are represented, with simple illustrations about every ten pages. The beginning Brief Outline ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part I
(Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, 1883)
A beautiful edition with a partially missing spine. I picked up this pair of volumes thinking that it was just another Cassell edition of the Thornbury translation. Then I noticed in Hobbs (100) that the first English ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part II
(Cassell Petter, and Galpin,, 1883)
See my comments on the first volume of this beautiful set. No title page (or indication on Part I's title page that this is a two-part set). Pagination continues from Part I.
