Selected Fables from La Fontaine
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1905)
The eight colored illustrations tipped-in on heavier colored paper--not necessarily adjacent to their texts--are the chief attraction of this book. See La Fontaine's Fables: A Selection from Nelson in 1905 for larger ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1910)
This book seems to be a hybrid of two items I have listed under 1910? and 1910?/1929? It has all the features of the latter but adds a colored front cover illustration of various animals arranged around a bust of La ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(Librairie de Hachette, 1953)
Here is a later printing and a better copy of a book first published in 1953. The collection, shown on the verso of the title-page, has grown in the meantime. I repeat my comments from there. Four fables are announced ...
Les Fables de la Fontaine (No. 1)
(Editions LitoÉditions Lito, 1972)
This book represents, I believe, a later version of a similar volume I have listed under 1970? Both have Lito 40341 on the front cover. This copy adds a large 1 on the front cover. It takes the list of books in the same ...
Fabulas de La Fontaine
(Editorial Epoca, S.A., 1977)
As in the Epoca edition of Samaniego in 1990/92, the illustrations here are full-page black-and-white cartoons that are primitive but lively. After a page on La Fontaine and a T of C, this book is nothing but La Fontaine's ...
La Fontaine: Fables Choisies VII-XII
(Librairie A. Hatier, 1928)
Forty-eight fables, listed in a T of C at the very back, in the kind of pamphlet the French seem to have made a specialty! See 1938 for a later edition, which adds some critical judgments and big enough print to make the ...
The Fox And The Stork And Other La Fontaine Fables.
(Grolier Society, 1967)
Surprise! When I bought this, I thought it was the 1967 Grolier edition that I already have (Fables of La Fontaine), with illustrations by Gustave Doré. Now that I have brought it home, I see that it contains the lively ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Éditions G. P., 1952)
This book may be the original behind a later and shorter version done in the same page-size (10½ x 7¾) by the same publisher in 1960. That volume had only 36 pages, while this has 60. That had twelve fables, while this ...
Fablio the Magician: The Tortoise and the Two Ducks, Adapted from La Fontaine's Fable
(R.L. Cavallere Ltd., Londondistributed by David Gold & Son (Holdings) Ltd., 1969)
Here is an English version of original French work. I now have two of six books in the English series and three in the French. The little tortoise Tillycom is seven months old and quite a terror of a child. She decides ...
Fifty Fables from La Fontaine
(London: Humphrey Milford: Oxford University Press, 1928)
This book has a different cover and different plates from its mate done in the United States. Because the plates are different, the pagination turns out to be different too.
