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 ...
The Father, his Son and their Donkey/Hermes and the Wood-cutter/The Rich Man and his Servant.
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Nice changes inculturate these fables: Ibrahim and Ali are given native skin and clothing. Hermes becomes the god of a river. The servant and the rich man con each other.
Fables from La Fontaine, Including His Life of Aesop.
A good selection of Oudry (twenty illustrations, one for each fable here), but the reproductions are not as sharp as I would have hoped. Kitty Muggeridge is Malcolm's wife; her vita is on the back flyleaf. The life of ...
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 ...
Jean de La Fontaine: The Fables
(Jupiter Books, 1975)
Offhand, I do not think the abundant Doré illustrations quite match those in the Chartwell edition (1982), perhaps especially because of the paper used here. An excellent bilingual presentation, always with Doré's small ...
Selected Fables & Tales of La Fontaine.
(New American Library, 1966)
About half the fables are translated here. The translation is different from Ponsot's shorter versions for the 1955 Baudoin version from Grosset and Dunlap. Besides the afterword, there are appendices giving LaFontaine's ...
Selected Works of La Fontaine
(Southern Illinois University Press. Arcturus Books, 1950)
A college textbook for Americans with a representative sampling of LaFontaine in several genres. About forty fables are included, with helpful brief notes under the texts and a short glossary of unusual words at the back. ...
