The Twelve de la Fontaine Fables as Painted in the Dining Saloon M.V. Dalerdijk
(Holland-America Line, 1950)
This pamphlet (4½ x 6½) contains a black-and-white illustration and an English text in rhyming couplets for each of twelve La Fontaine fables. They include: FC, Death and the Woodcutter, The two Bulls and the Frog, UP, ...
La Fontaine: Fables Choisies
(Editions BiasÉd. Bias, 1959)
I knew I had seen this book before. I did not realize that I had seen it in Greek. That edition was done by I.K. Papadopoulos and Son in Athens, and I guess at a date of 1975. There I speak of forty fables, but this ...
The Fables of La Fontaine
(Dorothy E. Jonness.n.], 1943)
There are verse translations of fifteen of La Fontaine's fables here. I find the second, Council Held by the Rats (4), particularly effective. I had forgotten that in La Fontaine the belling idea comes from their eldest, ...
(Whitman Publishing Company, 1934)
Wonderful colored illustrations in a delightful book. The best are those at the end of each of the six stories (e.g., of the wolf with the last lamb bones). In the Three-in-One copy, a youthful crayon lover has marked ...
La Fontaine: Fables Choisies I: L 1-6
(Classiques Larousse, 1934)
A typical pamphlet for French secondary students. No illustrations. It does not contain all the fables of the first six books. Apparently, Larousse started with these pamphlets and then grew into larger paperbacks with ...
Fabels van La Fontaine
(Prisma paperback: Spectrum, 1940)
Poorer reproductions of Grandville's engravings than in the 1976 third printing. Also a different cover. The last of these Dutch fables has a different translator, M. Nijhoff.
Jean de la Fontaine: Fabeln
A wonderfully colorful East German edition. Best of the 'humorvolle, kecke und liebenswuerdige' watercolors: GA (11), FG (cover and 67), DW (173), and 'The Two Goats' (209). My first two copies both cost 35 Marks, but ...
The Fables of La Fontaine
(Viking Press, 1954)
A huge and lovely book, without illustrations, with an index of titles and first lines in both English and French. I would like to keep coming back to this book. Most of LaFontaine I find on the longish side, and so I ...
fables de la fontaine
The first French-language version I have come upon, found in an off-the-beaten-path foreign language bookstore in Georgetown. The illustrations show a great use of color, but not as much fun as I would like. The best ...
Recueil des Fables de La Fontaine (Cover: Les belles Fables de la Fontaine)
(Editions René Touret, 1936)
This large-format coloring-book with 10-1936 on its back is thinner but in the same format as the coverless book I found a year earlier along the Seine. They share the same title-page title, though this one has Les belles ...
