Keur van Fabels van La Fontaine (II)
(Chagor: S.I.R.E.C., 1948)
Middle-size format little kids' book. The illustrations tend to be very simple. The two illustrations for FS on 14-15 may be the best. Two pages of text alternate with two pages of pictures.

Fables of La Fontaine
(Grolier Society, 1967)
The illustrations are rather poor runs of Doré for the thirteen fables included. Two of them are found seldom elsewhere: The Rat and the Elephant and The Two Doctors. This is a companion volume in red to the ...
Fabels van La Fontaine
(Prisma paperback: Spectrum, 1940)
Poorer reproductions of Grandville's engravings than in the 1976 third printing. Also a different cover. The last of these Dutch fables has a different translator, M. Nijhoff.
Fables in Rhyme for Little Folks Adapted from the French of La Fontaine.
(Wise Book Co., 1918)
A nice Volland reprint. Unfortunately the pictures often do not come out clearly. The printers seem to have had trouble with color separation and the exact matching of separate color impressions. One gets an impression ...
fables de la fontaine

The Fables of La Fontaine
(Viking Press, 1954)
A huge and lovely book, without illustrations, with an index of titles and first lines in both English and French. I would like to keep coming back to this book. Most of LaFontaine I find on the longish side, and so I ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Fabeln
A wonderfully colorful East German edition. Best of the 'humorvolle, kecke und liebenswuerdige' watercolors: GA (11), FG (cover and 67), DW (173), and 'The Two Goats' (209). My first two copies both cost 35 Marks, but ...
The Best Fables of La Fontaine
(University Press of Virginia, 1965)

La Fontaine Masallari: Fransiz Masallari
(Inkilap ve Akaİnkılâp ve Aka Kitabevleri, 1977)
My first Turkish book! Greg has been threatening to find this little volume in his books since he came last August. Now he has found! Forty-seven fables are listed in the T of C at the end of this paperback. The Henri ...
