Fables de la Fontaine N°1
(Imagerie Pellerin, 1978)
This is a curious and engaging book. It offers seventeen well-chosen fables of La Fontaine. The first, GA, is illustrated with a black-and-white tableau; the last, La Guenon, le Singe & la Noix, has an inky black-and-white ...
La Fontaine Masallari
(Bahar: Cocuk Klasikleri, 1984)
Here is a well-worn paperback of some 207 pages. Mechanically, the printing is less refined than we are accustomed to. Each page has a butterfly and a wavy rendition of the book's title running down the margin under the ...
La Fontaine: Fables Complètes
(Éditions Athêna, 1953)
This is a nice looking edition. It may be easiest to compare and contrast it with Dandelot's other La Fontaine edition, from Panthéon in 1961. This edition uses blue for titles and black for texts. Here, as there, no ...
Le Monde Magique des Fables de la Fontaine
(Comptoir du Livre Crealivres, 1989)
There are 190 pages in this large-format (8 x 11) book, including a T of C at the end. Most fables receive one or two pages. The illustrations show up in a pleasing diversity. There are full-page illustrations both in ...
Fables de La Fontaine, No. 4
Here is Volume Four, found four years after I found Volume Two, published in 1957. Apparently I have one more livre-disque to find to have the set of four complete. This Livre-Disque contains six fables, pictured on the ...
Fables: La Fontaine: Tome 2
Only the cover and later printing date seem to distinguish this printing from that of 1964. See my comments there.
Fables Choisies de La Fontaine, V. I
(Editions des "Moulins d'AuvergneSauzet, 1944)
It is strange how a cover affects one's perception of a book. I bought this beautifully covered pair of volumes thinking that the illustrations must be significant. When I came to examine the books, I found the illustrations ...
Fables Choisies de La Fontaine, V. II
See my comments on the first volume, both paper and hardbound, and on the paperbound second volume. This time through my favorite illustrations were Le Cerf se voyant dans l'Eau (20); La jeune Veuve (32); and Les Poissons ...
La Fontaine et le Premier Recueil des Fables, Vol II
(Librairie A.-G. Nizet, 1966)
The first volume of this pair is listed under 1965, even though its cover shows 1966. This second volume continues to work its way through Books Three, Four, Five, and Six, treating each fable along the way. As I mentioned ...
A Hundred Fables of LaFontaine (American Edition)
(John Lane The Bodley Head, 1900)
Before placing a bid on this book, I checked but found no record of my having a first edition. Soon after I placed the bid, I found the record. I felt bad since then--until I just checked the book out against the book I ...
