La Fontaine Vingt Fables
(André Gonin, 1950)
Bodemann 467.1. Bassy #56. Mentioned (30) by Hobbs. One of the stars of this collection! For each fable, there is a large lithograph on the third (or right-inside) page of a four-page folio made by folding a large sheet ...
Choix de Fables
(Librairie Gründ, 1954)
This is your bare-bones LaFontaine! No notes, no editor, no fable numbers (but there are books!), and no introductory material. AI at the rear. Though the book is only selected fables, it seems to cover a lot of ground.
La Fontaine: Fables
Now I have an earlier edition of this book from Hachette that I have already listed with its 1973 printing. See my comments under 1958/73. This printing was done in Monaco in 1961. The book had belonged to a school ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(Librairie Hachette, 1958)
A lively and well used children's book. Seventy-eight fables in LaFontaine's original verse, with an AI at the back. The illustrator puts the ass on top of the poles (53)! The best of the fifteen colored illustrations ...
Fables de La Fontaine
This is a large-format pamphlet of twenty-four pages. For the nine fables that are here, there are eight black-and-white illustrations and two colored illustrations. They are playful children's illustrations. Perhaps ...
La Fontaine's Fables Translated into English Verse
(London: Dent/NY:Dutton, 1952)
This reprint enlarges the original 1952 Everyman edition in crown octavo. The margins have grown, and the paper has improved in quality. Here is what I wrote on the 1952 edition: Dent/Dutton take over the text and preface ...
Fables: Jean de la Fontaine
(Maison Mame, 1950)
I wrote extensively on this book already, only now to find a copy of it with a dust jacket, indeed, a dust jacket sewn onto the book. Since there is no way to see the cover here and no dust jacket there, I will keep both ...
La Fontaine I
(Presses de la Cité, 1956)
This little book shows FC in an oval on its blue cover. The cover illustration is especially lively. The fables presented are FC, WL, UP, TH, and Le Coche et la Mouche.
La Fontaine Fables
I have found two other versions of this book, listed under 1953/66 and 1953/70. I keep trying to find a first edition! This may be the cleanest copy of the three, marred only by a bit of scotch-tape at the base of the ...
Jean de La Fontaine: Bajky
(Statni Nakladatelstvi Krasne Literatury, Hudby a UmeniStátni Nakladatelství krásné literatury a umění, 1959)
This book represents a serious undertaking. It is a nicely bound, sturdy, large book, complete with a place-marking ribbon. It covers apparently the whole corpus of La Fontaine's fables. The large, bold black-and-white ...
