La storia della Lepre et la Tartaruga e tante altre.
(Dami Editore, 1989)
Delightful pictures illustrate this kids' book. The best of them include the title page of the cat-grandma reading to the mice children, the fattened weasel getting caught in the narrow passage through which he entered ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Furne et Compagnie, 1855)
Lovely engravings, eight by Johannot and four by Moreau le Jeune, besides an unclaimed frontispiece portrait of LaFontaine. Since there is no list of illustrations, let me mention all twelve, with + for the best. ...
The Hare and the Tortoise (Japanese)
(Rakuda Shuppan Dezain, 1969)
Here is the Japanese version of Wildsmith's work, originally published by Oxford University Press in 1966. The bibliographical data here notes that original publication and seems to indicate a publication date of 1969 for ...
Fables de La Fontaine en Images Lumineuses
(Albums du Père Castor: Flammarion, Éditeur, 1935)
There are here six silhouette images of fable scenes from La Fontaine. Apparently, another six are missing, perhaps from the stapled center of this pamphlet. The full list of twelve fables appears on the bottom of the ...
Fables de La Fontaine, Album No. 2
(Imageries Réunies de Jarville-Nancy[s.n., 1935)
This is a well crafted pamphlet with fifteen fables, each with the left-hand page devoted to La Fontaine's text and the right-hand page to a brightly colored illustration. The latter are somewhere between André Hellé and ...
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 ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
Imagerie Artistique: 20 Fables de La Fontaine II.
(Ancienne Maison Quantin, 1890)
A beautiful collection aptly named. The format has square text inserted in a large picture, which often includes two phases or two scenes, human and fabulous. Do not miss the lovely front cover on the good copy. The ...
Favole di Animali
(Dami Editore, 1987)
A lovely gift. The book uses the illustrations from El Arca de las Fabulas (1983), but unfortunately converts the beautiful colored illustrations to simple black for the gold paper here. The wordless two mules of the ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(The Commodore Press Ltd, 1946)
This is an unusual LaFontaine for me in that it was done in French language on English soil. The year of publication offers some background for this anomaly. Saurat offers a good little introduction replete with well ...
