La Fontaine: Kurbaga-Fare Dostlugu
(Unlu KitabeviÜnlü Kitabevi, 1992)
There seem to be six stories here. I can recognize The Hare and the Lion from the illustration on 10; at least, I presume that we are dealing here with the Kalila and Dimna story of tricking the tyrant with the image at ...
La Fontaine Masallari: Karga Ile Tilki
(Cem YayıneviGuvercin Cocuk Kitaplari, 1984)
This is a very inexpensively produced small paperback of 64 pages. It is notable for the simple caricature designs that accompany the fables. There are nice colored renditions of FC and Two Goats on the front and back ...
Jean de La Fontaine: Bajki
(Panstwowy Instytut WydawniczyPaństwowy Instytut Wydawniczy, 1988)
Here is the one bibliophilic treasure I bring away from my one trip to Poland. Krakow was guaranteed to have more and better bookshops than Warsaw. I found this same book in two of them, but kept only the first, this ...
12 Fables de La Fontaine
(Editions BiotopÉditions BIOTOP, 2007)
Interesting remake apparently of the 1993 miniature, with five black-and-white internal illustrations by Olivier Le Pahun. This edition adds a fable, takes away the illustrations, and substitutes for the front cover ...
Fables de La Fontaine I
(La Bonne Compagnie, 1946)
A beautiful find. I am surprised to see the French publishing industry able to do a book like this so soon after the war. The aquarelles are unfortunately almost completely devoid of narrative content; they end up often ...
15 Fables Célèbres Racontées en Argot, Recueil No. 2
(Edicom Direct S.A., 1988)
Here is Volume II of fables in slang. I notice several curiosities. First, this was published in 1988, while my copy of Volume I was published in 1998. This volume has a larger format (about 7½ x 11). Though the publisher ...
La Fontaine den Masallar
(Ahmet Halit Kitabevi, 1949)
Here are 116 pages of verse translations of La Fontaine into Turkish with thirty pictures. There is a T of C at the end. The book starts with a colorful cover picture of La Fontaine speaking with children in contemporary ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Die Fabeln: Gesamtausgabe
(VMA Verlag, 1964)
This is a very compact verse translation of La Fontaine into German. The verse rhymes in various patterns. There is a T of C at the end.
(Insel Verlag, 1935)
Here is a lovely Insel-Library volume from, I am sure, before World War II. It has Anne's own notes on FC written into the margins (5). The original dealer was G. Delffs Buchhandlung in Pforzheim. The script of Etzel's ...
De Krekel en de Mier/De Eland en de Wolf
(Jurjen de Vries bv, 1994)
I have three other books in similar format. I have two out of the eight that make up the French set. I have one out of the six that make up the German set. This set is different in that it includes two fables in one ...
