Reynard the Fox and Other Fables
(P.F. Volland, 1925)
This extra copy has a split in its spine. This book uses the illustrations of the Volland 1918 Fables in Rhyme for Little Folks (see my listing for 1918/24?) and puts them now with prose stories rather than the verse used ...
More Fables of La Fontaine
(William Heinemann Ltd., 1925)
Here is an extra copy of the first edition, signed and numbered. Marsh had just published Forty-Two Fables of La Fontaine in the same year with (Heinemann in England and?) Harper in the US. In the preface to the 1931 ...
Les Plus Belles Fables de La Fontaine
(Éditions Spes, 1921)
Here is an extra copy of this beautiful book presenting a great moment in the Scheerenschnitte tradition. Twenty fables, with most getting one large and one or two smaller illustrations. The best of the silhouettes: ...

Fables de La Fontaine
(Librairie Hachette, 1921)
The last page signals that this is the 1931 printing of Lorioux' work, which originally appeared in 1921. See my comments on the original edition, also by Hachette, under 1921? This edition changes the cover to offer a ...
Forty-Two Fables of La Fontaine
(Harper and Brothers, 1925)
Here is an extra copy identical with that in the collection. Witty rhyming texts. The tales may get a bit long in the telling. Many witty classical allusions are made and played with. Good stuff for the scholars and ...
Fifty Fables from La Fontaine
(Oxford University Press, 1928)
Here is an extra copy. The rhymes are fun for the few I have checked so far. A pleasant little book. Use the beginning T of C: the fables are not in LaFontaine's order.
Fables de La Fontaine
Here is an extra copy of one of my favorite works. A real treasure. The beautiful watercolors are in great shape and show lovely taste and imagination. It is hard to pick favorites: the guitar-carrying grasshopper, the ...
