Fables Inédites des XIIe, XIIIe et XIVe Siècles et Fables de la Fontaine
(Etienne Cabin, 1825)
A treasurehouse in a volume in surprisingly good condition. Robert's claim is to have collected, with each LaFontaine fable, the Greek, Latin, French, Italian, Spanish, German, English, Dutch, and Oriental treatments of ...
Fables of La Fontaine: Two Volumes in One
(Bazin & Ellsworth, 1858)
I am happy to land this stated Fifth Edition of Elizur Wright's work. The only date apparent here is the 1842 on the verso of the title-page, indicating a date of entry into the clerk's office of the district court of the ...
Fables de J. de la Fontaine
(Bernardin-Béchet et Fils, 1869)
This little volume is identical, except for its cover, with later volumes I have Urbino in Boston in 1870 and from Bernardin-Béchet et Fils in Paris in 1875. (There may be some small changes in the 1885 printing from the ...
Fables de J. de la Fontaine

Fables de la Fontaine
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1874)
This seems to be the earliest Girardet edition I have published by Mame. The edition seems to have begun in 1857 and to have been reprinted with a few corrections in 1860. Bodemann's next edition in this item is 1878. ...
Fables de J. La Fontaine
(F. Didot frèresParis: Librairie de Firmin Didot Fréres, Fils et Cie, 1859)
Perhaps the loveliest non-illustrated LaFontaine in this collection. The careful owners in this last, unexpected Albuquerque stop did not know that they had this book. Very good condition. Calf binding with marbled ...
Fables Choisies de La Fontaine
(William R. Jenkins Co., 1892)
There are fifty fables with helpful notes in this small school reader. T of C at the end. The seller, Tom Hopper, noted wistfully that he would like to learn French and Latin to read books like these.
La Fontaine: A Present for the Young From the French
(Weeks, Jordan and Company, 1839)
This is an unusual--and an unusually expensive--little volume. It has its title clearly engraved in gold on its green cloth cover. There are 108 pages of verse fables without illustrations. Now, here is a pleasant ...
