Fables de La Fontaine Enrichies de Gravures
(J.B. Rolland & Fils, 1890)
This is one of the legion of French editions whose title-page claims dans laquelle on aperçoit d'un coup d'oeil la moralité de la fable. It is an undistinguished 306-page text for students with a T of C at the end except ...
The Fables of La Fontaine (Flowered Cover)
(H.M. Caldwell Company, 1881)
This book repeats in all but two respects an edition with the same bibliographical information. First, it has a lovely floral cover, part of which is done against a white leatherette background. Secondly, the H.M. Caldwell ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(Éditions du Milieu du Monde, 1955)
This may be the handiest complete edition of La Fontaine's fables that I have. Besides its bendable covers, it has an AI of fables at the back and even a place-marking ribbon. I wonder where and when I found this little book….
(Librairie P. Ducrocq, 1885)
A surprise sitting on the kids' shelf. Actually fifty-one fables from seventeen fabulists, most brief and illustrated with nice vignettes. The best art is of the ass and the thieves (13), GGE (28), the travellers and the ...

Les Plus Belles Fables de la Fontaine: 20 Fables Choisies
(Verlag Moritz Diesterweg, 1974)
Before the fables start in this 80-page pamphlet, there is a helpful two-page Bestiaire des Fables, picturing various animals who will appear in these fables. Vocabularies for individual fables then drive students back ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Saintin libraire de la cour,, 1820)
This is a small (3 x 4½) but plump book with appropriately small print on its 376 pages. The AI at the back is followed by four pages of advertisements. This book's special feature lies in the ten pages of engravings ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1926)
An instant favorite! I had never known of this book, which is not in Bassy. It is in good condition except for a weakening spine and some damage to the cover. Sixty fables with a T of C at the end. Sixteen full-page ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1870)
A fine little book with 240 small, very good imitations of Grandville's illustrations. It takes close looking to see how the wood-engraver departs from Grandville. AI at the back. The first illustration is slightly ...
Fables de La Fontaine: Cent Fables Choisies
(Librairie Renouard, 1904)
One of the most beautiful books in the collection, and in very good condition. Apparently unknown to standard bibliographers like Quinnam, Hobbs, and Bassy, it is in my favorite private collection. It is well described ...
