Fables de la Fontaine
(Editions G.P.Éditions G. P., 1960)
This is a large-format (10½ x 7¾) children's reader and picture-book of some 36 pages. It has experienced significant wear as a library book; it has a standard library hard-cover. It offers one or two lively, colorful, ...
Fables choisies de La Fontaine
Black-and-white illustrations and colored pictures are intermixed. The best among them are of the lap-donkey, FM, the crow with plumes, and MSA. AI at the beginning. A lovely treasure in the French tradition. See Fables ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Selected Fables
(Dover Publications, 1948)
Here is a favorite paperback of mine with lively illustrations, probably not quite as good as those in the Aesop edition Calder did in 1931. The illustrations are well reproduced. I will include six copies of this book ...
mes nouvelles fables de la Fontaine
(Librairie Fernand Nathan et Cie, 1974)
The pictures are cute. The La Fontaine text is the original verse. I see nothing for use. Of course, it is an example of the perduring tradition of LaFontaine. Fables presented here include TH, MM, The Little Fish and ...
Fabels van La Fontaine
(Prisma paperback: Spectrum, 1940)
Excellent reproductions of Grandville's engravings, better than in the 1946 first printing. Also a different cover. The last of these Dutch fables has a different translator, M. Nijhoff.
LaFontaine: Selected Fables
(Viking Press, 1979)
Michie's poetry seems sprightly. Grandville's illustrations really are a treasure-house. Unfortunately, they are not very well rendered here and are rather small. The quality of printing of the illustrations seems to ...
Favole di animali: Fiabe di la Fontaine, Fedro e Esopo.
(AMZ Editrice, 1960)
Colorful and often useful pictures. I like the one of the ant giving hell to the grasshopper. Good faces too on the fox with and moving away from the grapes. Style is simple but colorful, and the cut of the pictures ...
fables choisies pour les enfants
(L'école des loisirs, 1871)
A really classy book, almost worth what I paid for it. I am not sure that any of its pages is apt for a slide, especially since the very small text is always included. Both the original and the copy are very well done. ...
fables choisies de La Fontaine II.
(Librairie Larousse, 1971)
A typical French graduate student text, complete with possible exam questions. A few black-and-white illustrations from Doré, Grandville, and Rabier. I am fortunate to have found three different printings. The title-page ...
Le favole di La Fontaine
(Arnoldo MondadoriIl Melograno, 1971)
Realistic and playful drawings of animals in courtly human garb. I do not see any I would take now, but they are better-than-average. It may be difficult to get some away from the text, since they are so well arranged ...
