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 ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Editions G.P., 1949)
This book is the fourth distinct version I have found. It has the internal features of the book I have listed under 1949/1956? but it has a different dust-jacket. The dust jacket here includes references to new publications ...
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 ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Fables, Livres I à VI
(Editions Slatkine, 1995)
This is a very attractive little book, with a colored version of Oudry's The Monkey and the Dolphin in two different color-intensities on its cover. The book offers the integral text of La Fontaine's first six books with ...
The Fables of La Fontaine (Flowered Cover)
(H.M. Caldwell Company, 1881)
This book repeats in all but two respects an edition with the same bibliographical information. First, it has a lovely floral cover, part of which is done against a white leatherette background. Secondly, the H.M. Caldwell ...
