Fables de La Fontaine
(Magnard Jeunesse, 2003)
This is one of the most delightful La Fontaine books I have seen recently. It shows wit and creativity as its illustrations bring the texts into contemporary life. Each of thirty fables receives a two-page spread in this ...
The Town-rat and the Country-rat: Fable by de la Fontaine
(Brown Watson, Ltd., 1955)
Here is a fellow member of the Brown Watson series apparently labeled 1245 A. It seems to consist of the stories and illustrations that appeared in Eight Fables by La Fontaine, published by Mulder, perhaps in 1955. I do ...
The Cricket and the Ant: Fable by de la Fontaine
(Brown Watson LTD., 1955)
Here is a smaller version of a pamphlet listed under 1955? and published by Mulder & Zoon in Amsterdam. The dimensions here fit more with the size of Eight Fables by La Fontaine, by the same publisher, for which I have ...
Fables of La Fontaine, Vol. II
(Tappan and Dennet, 1841)

La Fontaine: Fables Choisies VII-XII
(Librairie A. Hatier, 1938)
Forty-eight fables, listed in a T of C at the very back, in the kind of pamphlet the French seem to have made a specialty! Some pencilling.
La Fontaine: Fables Choisies I-VI
(Librairie A. Hatier, 1939)
Seventy-seven fables, listed in a T of C at the very back, in the kind of pamphlet the French seem to have made a specialty! Some pencilling.
Fabulas de La Fontaine
(Editorial Epoca, S.A., 1977)
As in the Epoca edition of Samaniego in 1990/92, the illustrations here are full-page black-and-white cartoons that are primitive but lively. After a page on La Fontaine and a T of C, this book is nothing but La Fontaine's ...
Fifty Fables from La Fontaine
(London: Humphrey Milford: Oxford University Press, 1928)
This book has a different cover and different plates from its mate done in the United States. Because the plates are different, the pagination turns out to be different too.
