Favourite Fables from La Fontaine
(The Hamlyn Publishing Group Limited, 1972)
The graphics of this book are nearly identical with those in the French Fables de La Fontaine (1971/80) and the Italian Le favole di La Fontaine (1971/82). In fact, the book maintains the arrangement of the French original, ...
François Chauveau: Vignettes des Fables de la Fontaine (1668)
(University of Exeter, 1977)
After an introduction, a note on the illustrations, and a bibliography, there are 118 vignettes, followed by a table listing their fable titles. The vignettes have been slightly enlarged, from 67mm x 52mm to 85mm x 68mm. ...
Fables from La Fontaine, Including His Life of Aesop
This 1973 reprint is identical with the 1973 first printing in all ways I can discern, except that it adds a gold design of WC to the cover. The first printing seems to have put this design upside-down on the back cover! ...
Lafontaine: Dialechtoi Mythoi
(I.K. Papadopoulos and Son, 1975)
LaFontaine in Greek! Forty fables, with sixteen simple and poorly reproduced color illustrations and a few black-and-whites. Meant for children of age seven through eleven.
Fables de La Fontaine
(Editions du Bois-Joli, 1970)
A lovely find in a friendly bookstore near the site of the first railroad station in the United States. This is a large-format hard-covered book combining La Fontaine's verse, full-page colored illustrations, and smaller ...
Fables choisies de La Fontaine
(Aventinum Nakladatelství, 1974)
I hope no clever reader asks me to explain all those copyright dates! This edition seems to have dropped one of my favorite colored illustrations, the one which had been on the cover and dust jacket of the 1962 English ...
LaFontaine: Selected Fables
(Viking Press, 1979)
Michie's poetry seems sprightly. Grandville's illustrations really are a treasure-house. Unfortunately, they are not very well rendered here and are rather small. The quality of printing of the illustrations seems to ...
LaFontaine: Selected Fables
(Penguin Books, 1979)
Surprising. This book is identical--down to the typeface, I think--with the Viking editions (1979), minus the illustrations. The surprise is that I see no acknowledgement here of the Viking edition, perhaps because Penguin ...
Jean de La Fontaine: The Fables
(Bloomsbury Books, 1975)
Almost identical with the earlier Jupiter edition, except that this one has a dust jacket and uses better, thinner paper. The Doré illustrations thus come off the page better. The book's producers also make sure that the ...
(Editions Piccoli, 1971)
Includes the fables presented in the Arnaud edition (1970?) among its forty-three. The art is again big and bold, and the additional illustrations here seem to me livelier than the repeaters. The best among them are of ...
