je lis des Histoires Vraies, No. 96, Mai 2001: Jean de La Fontaine
(Fleurus Presse, 2001)
This is a 66-page magazine, apparently a monthly, designed for children between eight and twelve years of age. This issue concentrates on the fables of Jean de la Fontaine. Many individual parts feature La Fontaine. The ...
La Fontaine - Diran Antreasian
This Armenian book of La Fontaine's fables was inscribed in 1951. 176 pages. The first half seems to feature poetic texts, while the second half has prose. A black-and-white portrait of La Fontaine appears on 5. ...
Bewick's Select Fables
(Hillside Press, 1965)
Notable as one of the smallest Aesops I have found: about an inch square. The introduction (by F.E.I. ) points out that Bewick's originals were only two inches high. Eleven fables, each with an illustration, plus FC ...
Classics Illustrated Junior, #512
(Classics IllustratedFamous Authors, 1954)
MSA takes up two pages (29-30). Unusually tight telling of the story in only eight panels. Here the donkey gets angry when people laugh. He apparently drowns. $.25.

A companion in the same format to Fables in Slang. The fun continues! The title-page, cover, and spine have the title listed above, while the page before the title-page has More Fables in Slang. My favorites here are ...
The Hare and the Tortoise
(Mulberry Press, 1975?)
I had found this book in Santa Cruz thirteen years ago, but it came there with a screen that does not reveal well the motion of the illustrations. At Quinto, then, I found another copy with a much sturdier screen that ...
Fables in Slang and More Fables in Slang
(Dover Publications, 1899)
This republication of Ade's first two fable books (actually published in 1899 and 1900) is highlighted by Bleiler's excellent introduction. All the fables but one are reprinted, and apparently almost all the illustrations ...
Longmans' Ship Literary Readers: Book I.
(Longmans Green, and Co.,, 1898)
A very nice first reader in very good shape. There are five fables with good simple illustrations, especially The Farmer and the Donkey (7), The Cats That Went to Law (28), and The Silly Frog (34). The farmer ...
