Fables of La Fontaine, 4th ed., Vol. II
(Tappan and Dennet, 1843)
A lovely little pair of books. See my comment on Volume I. Twenty-five well executed and well preserved illustrations; it is a shame that they are so small. The best of them is of the squealing pig on the way to slaughter (71).
Fables of La Fontaine, 4th ed., Vol. I
(Tappan and Dennet, 1843)
A lovely little pair of books. The notice says that the warm reception of Grandville's illustrations in the 1841 original was expected, but the favor accorded Wright's translation was not! The present volumes cost 10% ...
Fables de la Fontaine, Précédées de la vie d'Ésope
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1878)
It has taken me fifteen years to catalogue this unassuming little book (3¾ x5?). It is in only fair condition. The cover is darkened and has a signature across its top and an ink blotch near its bottom. But it is a ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
(George W. Jacobs & Company, 1910)
The most curious thing about this beautiful little book is its international sources: American, English, French. It is in a small format, and has only sixty pages. The colored pictures are excellent; the best is of the ...
La Fontaine's Fables: A Selection
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1905)
This wide book presents a classic La Fontaine from the early part of the century. Park's colored illustrations are large and lovely; the best are of FC and GA. The best of Bull's black-and-white illustrations are feet ...
Fables de La Fontaine, No. 1
Here ten fables are shown and read by Yves-Gérard le Dantec. A 45 rpm record is part of the book; it has its own little envelope inside the front cover. Monochrome and polychrome pages alternate. The illustrations are ...
Phaedri Augusti Liberti Fabularum Libri V, Accesserunt Parallelae Joannis de la Fontaine Fabulae
(Joseph Barbou, 1783)
Bodemann #127.3. The note there shows that this is a reprinting of a work first done by Barbou in 1754, but that the works of La Fontaine and the work of Brotier have been added. This is a small book, about 3½ x 6¼. ...
The Fables of Aesop and La Fontaine (Hebrew)
(Fratelli Fabbri EditoriMasadah, 1994)
Here an oversized (9¼ x 13) paperbound version of nineteen of La Fontaine's fables with the delightful art work of Cremonini very well rendered. As in earlier English version from 1958 (The Fables of Aesop and La Fontaine) ...
La Fonten: Dhelpra gë humbi bishtin
This is my first publication in the collection in Albanian. It is a 24-page landscape-formatted pamphlet. The text is generally restricted to a few lines per page. The illustrations, unfortunately, are not well executed. ...
Fables de La Fontaine, Tome I: Livres I-VII.
(H. Fournier Ainé, 1838)
This edition seems to me to be identical with that which I have listed under the same publishers and year, having acquired it from Pangloss Books in Cambridge. I make a separate listing here to be on the safe side, since ...
