Bajky LaFontaineovy S Obrazky Doreovymi
(Kral. VinohradyKrál. Vinohrady, 1928)
Seventy-two fables on 72 pages, with a T of C at the end. This paperbound volume has a nice oval portait of La Fontaine on its cover. It is in only fair condition, and its binding is deteriorating.
Choix de Fables de La Fontaine: Album pour les Enfants
(Librairie Garnier Freres, 1926)
A lovely large-format book in paperboard covers. There are thirty fables of La Fontaine, each introduced with a good Grandville engraving. There are also six full-paged color illustrations by Jules David. If he is the ...
Forty-Two Fables of La Fontaine
(Harper and Brothers, 1925)
This book is interiorly identical with another, bought in Santa Fe. It has a slightly smaller format, no label on its front cover, and lighter green cloth for its covers. As I mention of that other first U.S. edition, ...
Fables de La Fontaine
Here is an extra copy of one of my favorite works. A real treasure. The beautiful watercolors are in great shape and show lovely taste and imagination. It is hard to pick favorites: the guitar-carrying grasshopper, the ...
More Fables of La Fontaine

Fifty Fables from La Fontaine
(Oxford University Press, 1928)
The rhymes are fun for the few I have checked so far. A pleasant little book. Use the beginning T of C: the fables are not in LaFontaine's order.
La Fontaine: Fables
(Carl Winter's Universitätsbuchhandlung, 1925)
A lovely little volume containing sixty fables, all but one (the first: GA) with a very engaging black-and-white silhouette. Some of my favorite little silhouettes include the cover/frontispiece illustration of Aesop ...
Fables de La Fontaine
Bodemann describes the book very well (#409) and lists it as ca. 1921. I find no date indicated in this book, but I have no doubt that this is the first edition of a book I have loved for a long time, first through Whitman's ...
Fables de la Fontaine: Édition a l'Usage de la Jeunesse
(Librairie DelagraveLibrarie Delagrave, 1925)
How many thousands of copies of books like this are sitting in French attics?! It includes twenty indifferent renderings of great Oudry illustrations, but its special charm is that it was a prize. The embossed cover ...
