The Rich Man and the Shoe-maker: A Fable by La Fontaine.
(Oxford Univ. Pr.Oxford University Press, 1965)
A beautiful large-format hardbound book in excellent condition. The version used here departs significantly from LaFontaine's text. This version adds--and puts special emphasis on--the children who come out to listen to ...
(Insel Verlag, 1940)
This is an apparently later printing of a volume I have already as a gift, and which I have listed under 1935?. There are clear differences. The cover has changed from a white, green, and brown floral pattern to a simpler ...
La Fontaine: Fabeln
(Philipp Reclam jun.Verlag Philipp, 1965)
This is a simple Reclam paperback of about one hundred pages, with Jean Effel's FS on its cover. There is a Tof C at the back. There is an eleven-page Nachwort from Claus Werner.
Die Fabeln von Jean de la Fontaine
This is a strange and dear book. It consists of what is left of an edition of fables using Grandville's illustrations. In fact, the printer's designs around the fable numbers remind me of those in the first three editions ...
La Fontaine: Der Rabe und der Fuchs
(Insel Verlag, 1990)
My first find on this trip to Heidelberg, and a wonderful one it is! I actually got this book cheaper than I got the paperback copy (1992). The translation is, as the dust jacket proclaims, ein wenig frech wirkend. ...
Fablio the Magician: The Grasshopper and the Ant, Adapted from La Fontaine's Fable
(R.L. Cavallere Ltd., Londondistributor David Gold & Son (Holdings) Ltd, 1969)
Here is a fable that I do not yet have in any language by Fablio. The story starts with a ladybug waking up and taking a shower by pulling down the cup of a daisy. The ants respond with unanimity to the wake-up call of ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1874)
This seems to be the earliest Girardet edition I have published by Mame. The edition seems to have begun in 1857 and to have been reprinted with a few corrections in 1860. Bodemann's next edition in this item is 1878. ...
La Fontaine: Fables Complètes
(Maurice Glomeau, 1920)
Not in Bodemann. This is a stout (6 x 7¾) one-volume edition of La Fontaine's fables. At the beginning of each book of fables, there is a black-and-white illustration, and at the end of each book there is another ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Librairie du XXe Siècle, 1900)
Avec une Notice Biographique, un Portrait de l'Auteur et Trente Dessins par Weir. I think this book may be related to another which I have also listed under 1900? It was published by Librairie Nationale d'Éducation et ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Livre-Disque Microsillon Atlas, 1955)
This large--about 10 square--pamphlet of twelve pages is meant to accompany a record, and so it is Interpreté par La Compagnie Claude Vernick with Musique de Boccherini. Of course I do not have the record. The booklet ...
