Fables choisies de La Fontaine
Black-and-white illustrations and colored pictures are intermixed. The best among them are of the lap-donkey, FM, the crow with plumes, and MSA. AI at the beginning. A lovely treasure in the French tradition. See Fables ...
mes nouvelles fables de la Fontaine
(Librairie Fernand Nathan et Cie, 1974)
The pictures are cute. The La Fontaine text is the original verse. I see nothing for use. Of course, it is an example of the perduring tradition of LaFontaine. Fables presented here include TH, MM, The Little Fish and ...
Fabels van La Fontaine
(Prisma paperback: Spectrum, 1940)
Excellent reproductions of Grandville's engravings, better than in the 1946 first printing. Also a different cover. The last of these Dutch fables has a different translator, M. Nijhoff.
The Frogs Who Wanted a King.
(Four Winds Press: Scholastic Magazines, 1977)
An ingenious idea, and some ingenious illustrations to match in watercolors. I will try to work one song or slide into a lecture, like the one on the two rats.
(L'École des Loisirs, 1977)
A lovely find! I first saw these illustrations in the original as separate pages matted at Orrie's in St. Paul. The illustrations are ingenious multipart presentations. The reproductions are only adequate. The best may ...
fables choisies pour les enfants
(L'école des loisirs, 1871)
A really classy book, almost worth what I paid for it. I am not sure that any of its pages is apt for a slide, especially since the very small text is always included. Both the original and the copy are very well done. ...
Fables de J. de la Fontaine: Edition Miniature
(Fonderie Laurent et DebernyFonderie Typographique, 1850)
This must be the smallest full edition of La Fontaine's fables that I have. It measures a little under 2 x 3. At that size, it takes 250 pages and a magnifying glass to cover the fables and a two-page T of C at the end.
Fables de Lafontaine: Imagerie d'Épinal
(Imagerie d'Épinal Pellerin & Cie,Pellerin & Companie, 1850?)
The helpful person at Roe and Moore convinced me that this is a hand-colored Épinal from before the age of chromolithography. Its seven images are breathtaking! I recognize two from having them on Épinal plates. Thus I ...
Le Lion et le Rat: Collection Fables
(Albo Delmar Import-ExportEdiciones A. Saldaña, 1984)
Copyright 1984 Ediciones Al Saldaña. This is a die-cut pamphlet of eight pages. It starts very abruptly without a title-page. The aggressive little rat hits the sleeping lion in the head with a pea-shooter! The rat ...
La Fontaine I
(Presses de la Cité, 1956)
This little book shows FC in an oval on its blue cover. The cover illustration is especially lively. The fables presented are FC, WL, UP, TH, and Le Coche et la Mouche.
