(D. JouaustLibrairie des Bibliophiles, 1885)

The Fables of La Fontaine
(H.M. Caldwell Co., 1881)
This handy-sized edition of the Wright translation of LaFontaine with frontispiece of La Fontaine and three illustrations has a curious place in the history of Wright editions. Apparently it reproduces the preface and ...
Choix de Fables de J. de La Fontaine
(Librarie Hachette et cie, 1886)
Ninety-two fables with the head-pieces and tail-pieces of Doré but none of his full-page illustrations. The front cover is separating. T of C at the end. The red leather and gilt pages all around are the most remarkable ...
The Fables of Jean de La Fontaine
(William T. Amies, 1880)
Great cover and binding decoration! 240 fables, without book divisions. Not the original Thornbury edition of 1868, published by Cassell. The illustrations are good but not as good as in the Ten Kate version from Holland ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part I
(Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, 1883)
A beautiful edition with a partially missing spine. I picked up this pair of volumes thinking that it was just another Cassell edition of the Thornbury translation. Then I noticed in Hobbs (100) that the first English ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part II
(Cassell Petter, and Galpin,, 1883)
See my comments on the first volume of this beautiful set. No title page (or indication on Part I's title page that this is a two-part set). Pagination continues from Part I.
The Fables of LaFontaine
(J.C. Nimmo and Bain, 1884)
Big, impressive, lavish. I had not known of this translator or this artist before. The engravings are ambitious and picturesque but ultimately unsuccessful. The best of them is the beautiful gilt cover (also at 229) of ...
The Fables of La Fontaine (Flowered Cover)
(H.M. Caldwell Co., 1881)
Here is an extra copy of this book. 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 ...
The Fables of La Fontaine II
(Estes and Lauriat, 1881)
Here is an extra copy. This is the second of two volumes with gold embossed blue-and-white covers in excellent condition. It combines the final two volumes of the set of four which I found at Goodspeed's in March, '89, ...
