A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
La Fontaine Fables, and Other Poems
(Colin Smythe, 1982)
Thirteen good translations of LaFontaine make up some forty of the 140 pages here. The fables and other translations from French, Italian, Spanish, and German are presented bilingually, with the original and the translation ...
Fables de la Fontaine II
(Éditions du Sagittaire, 1933)
It is exactly one year later as I at last have braved cutting the pages and have taken the time to enjoy the delightful, colorful aquarelles here. I like them very much. Color and composition work together to make the ...
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 ...
A Hundred Fables of La Fontaine
(Park South Books, 1988)
Identical with the Hampstead edition of the same title (1988). It looks from the advertisements and the absolute identity of the books as though Park South is the New York branch of whoever is behind Hampstead Editions. ...
La Fontaine's Fables
(London: J.M. Dent & Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton & Co., 1952)
Dent/Dutton take over the text and preface that Marsh had published through Heinemann in 1931. It is good to have his lively tellings in this compact format without illustration. I did not know that the Everyman Library ...
Fables de J. La Fontaine
(F. Didot frèresParis: Librairie de Firmin Didot Fréres, Fils et Cie, 1859)
Perhaps the loveliest non-illustrated LaFontaine in this collection. The careful owners in this last, unexpected Albuquerque stop did not know that they had this book. Very good condition. Calf binding with marbled ...
La Fontaine Fables: Trente-cinq lithographies originales de Hans Erni
(André GoninAndré Gronin: André Kundig & Auguste Griess for text; Hermann Kratz & Emile Matthieu for illustrations, 1955)
I had seen this portfolio only once before, in the home of my favorite private collector. I knew of Erni from his great illustrations for Ovid's Metamorphoses. I thought I would never have a chance at adding a copy to ...
La Fontaine: A Present for the Young From the French
(Weeks, Jordan and Company, 1839)
This is an unusual--and an unusually expensive--little volume. It has its title clearly engraved in gold on its green cloth cover. There are 108 pages of verse fables without illustrations. Now, here is a pleasant ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
(Éditées specialement pour les Magasins du bon Marché, 1901)
This book reduplicates editions I already have listed under 1897 and 1907. 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 ...
