Fables de La Fontaine
A beautiful huge book found at one of my first stops in an all-day Montreal bookstore tour. The closest parallel is the Chartwell/Ebeling Fables of La Fontaine of 1982. See my comments there. The two books are the same ...
Jean de la Fontaine: 60 Fabels
(B.V. Uitgeversbedrijf het Goede Boek, 1980)
This is a standard book of Doré's illustrations to La Fontaine, very similar to books I have in French, English, and German. Large format, 126 pages. I was happy to find a new fable book in my first afternoon in Holland. ...
Le Loup et le Chien
(Ediciones A. Saldaña; Albo Delmar Import-Export, 1984)
Here is an interesting case of things coming together from different times and places. In Salamanca in 1986, I found a simple pop-up from a publisher I did not know. Sixteen years later I found a French die-cut presentation ...
Historiettes et Fables: Fables de la Fontaine et Contes Inspirés d'Ésope
This French book duplicates Kincaid's Timeless Fables: A Collection of Aesop's Fables published by Brimax in 1981. It is unfortunately lacking pages 39-42 and the stories listed on those pages in the opening T of C. ...
Lafonten' den Masallar
(Nil Yayınevinil yayinevi cocuk kitaplari, 1982)
This children's booklet contains forty-eight pages of fables with five faint full-page black-and-white illustrations. The best of these (6) is similar to the colored picture of FC on the front cover.
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 ...
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 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 ...
The Complete Fables of Jean de la Fontaine.
(Northwestern University Press, 1988)
An ambitious undertaking by the now deceased translator. Bilingual on facing pages throughout. It looks like the translations are very careful. They follow the meter of the original exactly. Worth trying for the person ...
Fifty Fables of La Fontaine
(University of Illinois Press, 1988)
A lovely bilingual edition with excellent rhymed translations and notes. The black-and-white art is not outstanding; the best illustrations are those of the lion and gnat (also on back cover) and of an old cat and a young mouse.
