Fables de Jean de La Fontaine
(Le Genévrier, 2012)
Start with the back cover of this book. It contains two fascinating items. First there is an imaginary conversation between Sara and La Fontaine, where La Fontaine -- appropriately -- argues for the spiritual character ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1926)
An instant favorite! I had never known of this book, which is not in Bassy. It is in good condition except for a weakening spine and some damage to the cover. Sixty fables with a T of C at the end. Sixteen full-page ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1870)
A fine little book with 240 small, very good imitations of Grandville's illustrations. It takes close looking to see how the wood-engraver departs from Grandville. AI at the back. The first illustration is slightly ...
Die Fabeln des Jean de LaFontaine
(Georg MuellerGeorg Müller, 1911)
A magnificently preserved book. Eighty-two fables done in nicely rhyming German, with about thirty small reproductions of Oudry interspersed. T of C at rear.
Chwedlau neu Ddammegion Aesop
(Argraffwyd a Chyhoeddwyd gan R. Hughes & Son,, 1870)

Jean de la Fontaine: Selected Fables
(George Braziller, Inc., 1957)
A new edition, without any acknowledgement of the Quadrangle Press original of 1948. Note that one extra copy cost me as much as the original eventually would cost. I see little change from the original here. This is a ...
Fables Choisies de La Fontaine
(William R. Jenkins Co., 1892)
There are fifty fables with helpful notes in this small school reader. T of C at the end. The seller, Tom Hopper, noted wistfully that he would like to learn French and Latin to read books like these.
Fables de La Fontaine, No. 3
At last I have found Number 3 in a series of four combinations of book and record. There is a slight anomaly, since the only date I can find here is 1961 on the back cover of the booklet, and my copy of Number 3 is dated ...
Juliette et les fables de La Fontaine vol 1
Here a cassette-tape and a book go well together. Juliette describes experiences in school around learning four fables of La Fontaine. With good musical background, she offers explanations of various turns in each of ...
