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, ...
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 den Hikayeler Arslan Ile Fare
(Itimat Kitabevi, Iyigun Yayinlari, 1972)
This is a deteriorating pamphlet of 24 pages measuring 5½ x 7½. It pictures LM on its cover in very simple and even garish colors. There are simple black-and-white designs inside, ranging from small to full-page. I can ...
La Fontaine: Le renard et la cigogne
(Editions Lito-ParisÈditions Lito, 1975)
I have one other booklet in this series, La Fontaine: Le laboureur et ses enfants, Le pot de terre et le pot de fer from 1981. As I mentioned there, I am surprised at the title Fabliaux since the titles listed in the ...
Les Fables de la Fontaine (No. 2)
(Editions LitoÉditions Lito, 1972)

Jean de La Fontaine: Die Fabeln
(Emil Vollmer Verlag, 1975)
A beautiful book very similar in format to the Jupiter edition of 1975. Like it, this edition is bilingual and uses background color to set off the original text and Doré's small illustrations. This book is more complete ...
Mes premières fables de la Fontaine
(Librairie Fernand Nathan et Cie., 1974)
This is a second, distinct, fable book in the same series as mes nouvelles fables de la Fontaine by the same artist and publisher in the same year. The pictures are cute. Both books are examples of the perduring tradition ...
LaFontaine: Selected Fables: Uncorrected Proof.
(Allen Lane, 1979)
This is a fascinating little paperbound volume. The double paperbound covers are identical with those in the adjacent listing for Viking's hardbound. The inside (paper) cover has the illustration (of the eagle, hare, and ...
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 ...
