Favourite Fables from La Fontaine
(The Hamlyn Publishing Group Limited, 1972)
The graphics of this book are nearly identical with those in the French Fables de La Fontaine (1971/80) and the Italian Le favole di La Fontaine (1971/82). In fact, the book maintains the arrangement of the French original, ...
Fables from La Fontaine, Including His Life of Aesop
This 1973 reprint is identical with the 1973 first printing in all ways I can discern, except that it adds a gold design of WC to the cover. The first printing seems to have put this design upside-down on the back cover! ...
Lafontaine: Dialechtoi Mythoi
(I.K. Papadopoulos and Son, 1975)
LaFontaine in Greek! Forty fables, with sixteen simple and poorly reproduced color illustrations and a few black-and-whites. Meant for children of age seven through eleven.
Fables de La Fontaine
(Editions du Bois-Joli, 1970)
A lovely find in a friendly bookstore near the site of the first railroad station in the United States. This is a large-format hard-covered book combining La Fontaine's verse, full-page colored illustrations, and smaller ...
Dame Cigale et Dame Fourmi
(Kenworthy Educational Service, 1970)
This book is exactly identical with the pamphlet version of the same year, title, and publisher. I do not know whether the Perma-Bound hard cover comes from the publisher or perhaps from some librarian. In any case, the ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
(Éditions Lito, 1974)
This is my seventh book illustrated by Monique Gorde, and it seems distinct from the other six. Here are thirty-one fables illustrated on 78 pages in a large-format children's book 9 x 10½. As always, Gorde imbues her ...
La Fontaine: Le renard et la cigogne
(Editions Lito-ParisÈditions Lito, 1975)
I have one other booklet in this series, La Fontaine: Le laboureur et ses enfants, Le pot de terre et le pot de fer from 1981. As I mentioned there, I am surprised at the title Fabliaux since the titles listed in the ...
(Editions Hemma, 1976)
There are three types of art in this 48-page pamphlet 8 x 11½ in size. There is a large colored cameo on the front (cardboard) cover. Signed Maury, it is a sentimental picture of a child as the milkmaid whose pitcher has ...
LaFontaine: Selected Fables
(Penguin Books, 1979)
Surprising. This book is identical--down to the typeface, I think--with the Viking editions (1979), minus the illustrations. The surprise is that I see no acknowledgement here of the Viking edition, perhaps because Penguin ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Neugebauer Press, 1979)
Beautiful, lavish, tasteful illustrations of the seventeen fables presented in this oversize book. Among the best: LM, AD, and the finis picture. I found this at Schroeder's on my second or third try there. We did some ...
