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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

(C. Marpon et E. Flammarion Éditeurs, 26, rue Racine, près l'Odéon,, 1900)
Here are Books VII-XII of La Fontaine's fables in a lovely little volume. Half-leather. Marbled covers and end-papers. No commentary or illustrations. About 2 x 3. The binding is unusually tight and well preserved for ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, I, I
(Estes and Lauriat, 1881)
This first of the four books has a separated front cover. There is an excellent introduction to Wright and an account of his editions, including the five fables he wrote to be included in the place of expurgated material ...
A Hundred Fables of LaFontaine
(John Lane The Bodley Head, 1900)
A beautiful book in very good condition, scarce in dust jacket as Midway's note proclaims. The cover under the fine dust jacket is beautifully colored. Apparent companion to the Lane/Dodd and Mead A Hundred Fables of ...
Fables Choisies de la Fontaine.
(Vanlinthout et Cie, 1852)
My first book published in Louvain. A cursory examination suggests that almost all of LaFontaine's fables are here. Additional selections include fourteen from Florian, eleven from Abbé Reyre, and nine from others. This ...
