Fablio der Zauberer: Der Löwe und die Schnake
(Zyklo-Verlag AG, 1969)
The Fablio series of six books was done in French, Dutch, English, and German. Here is my second volume in German. It covers a story that I already have in French. It is 48 pages long and features "Aesop," "Phedre," and ...
The Fables of La Fontaine
I had searched for ten years and never had this book in my hand. Experts in children's books did not even know that Scarry had done a LaFontaine book. Thirty-one fables, some with colored and some with black-and-white ...
The Best Fables of La Fontaine
(University Press of Virginia, 1965)
The translations seem to be well done--rhymed and colloquial enough. I am not sure where the best of the title comes in; the collection looks complete. The illustrations are few and primitive.
Fables of La Fontaine
(Grolier Society, 1967)
The illustrations are rather poor runs of Doré for the thirteen fables included. Two of them are found seldom elsewhere: The Rat and the Elephant and The Two Doctors. This is a companion volume in red to the ...
(Éditions du Seuil, 1961)
This study of LaFontaine gets interesting for me around 114, where there are a number of fine old illustrations of the fables, unfortunately small in size. One nice series traces The Plague among the Beasts through ...
La Fontaine: Fables choisies
Here is a very helpful book for those who have some French and want to read a good portion of La Fontaine in the original. There are about fifty-five fables presented, with good vocabulary/grammar notes in French and ten ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Fables
(La Guilde du Livre, 1960)
This is, as one might expect, a spectacular volume for two things. First is the excellent binding. The original red leather has golden lettering on its pliable spine. The second curious feature lies in the pasted-in ...
La Fontaine: Cent Fables
(Selection du Reader's DigestSélection du Reader's Digest, 1963)
This is a curious book. It puts around the fables a number of curious things. There are, e.g., a number of pointed, provocative little quotations about La Fontaine and his fables. There is Trémois' art, sometimes line ...
Jean de la Fontaine: The Complete Fables
(The New English Library Limited, 1962)
Here is a surprising find from a five-minute stop in a beloved old store. I would have thought that I would know by now of a twentieth-century verse translation of the complete fables of La Fontaine. A quick check on the ...
Five Fables of La Fontaine
(Grolier Society, 1967)
Surprise! When I bought this, I thought it was the 1967 Grolier edition that I already have, The Fox and the Stork And Other La Fontaine Fables, with its illustrations by Boutet de Monvel. Of course, when I found that ...
