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 ...
(Éditions du Seuil, 1961)
This study of LaFontaine gets interesting for me around 114, where there are a number of fine old illustrations of the fables, unfortunately small in size. One nice series traces The Plague among the Beasts through ...
The Best Fables of La Fontaine
(University Press of Virginia, 1965)
The translations seem to be well done--rhymed and colloquial enough. I am not sure where the best of the title comes in; the collection looks complete. The illustrations are few and primitive.
La Fontaine: Fables choisies mises en vers.
(Garnier Frères, 1962)
A hefty paperback. In analysing this book I have realized that La Fontaine's original book was titled Selected Fables, so my search here to see what was left out was futile! The black-and-white reproductions are only ...
Fables: La Fontaine: Tome 1
See 1964 for Tome 2, which I found eight years ago. In fact, I thought I was picking up an inexpensive extra. The first surprise was that the dealer wanted $1.50 for a book marked $.50. The second surprise came when I ...
La Fontaine: Fables choisies
Here is a very helpful book for those who have some French and want to read a good portion of La Fontaine in the original. There are about fifty-five fables presented, with good vocabulary/grammar notes in French and ten ...
Fables: La Fontaine: Tome 2
Only the cover and later printing date seem to distinguish this printing from that of 1964. See my comments there.
Trois Fables de La Fontaine
(Imprimerie W.M. Cheney[W.M. Cheney], 1965)
Certainly one of my smallest books at less than one-and-a-half inches by less than one-and-an-eighth! GA, FC, and FG are each illustrated with a page or two of strong--if small!--brown illustrations. The full-page figures ...
Fables de la Fontaine
A 20-page children's book of intermediate size (7½ x 6) with stiff covers. The four fables enclosed are pictured on the endpapers: FC, OF, Le Heron, and TH. As far as I can tell, this little edition does not coincide--or ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Fratelli Fabbri Editori, 1964)
See my version dated 1965 and otherwise almost identical. They share a 1962 copyright by O.D.E.J., Paris. As I write there, this is a large-format children's book, now the third distinct set of work I have by Cremonini ...
