Fables Choisies Mises en Vers par M. de La Fontaine, Tome II
(Louis Conard, 1931)
Bodemann #425. Here is a real treasure! I think I did not realize what I was getting when I bid on this set of books. Each fable has a lovely colored woodcut about a third of a page in size. An early note indicates the ...
Livre de Fables Offert par les Grand Magasins Sigrand & Cie.

Stories for the Children's Hour
(Metropolitan Church Association, 1930)
A hoot! All sorts of pious stories, including the evils of tobacco, what we want little girls and little boys to be, the gingercake man, the Last Supper, and Gethsemane. In the middle (34) of it all comes The Bundle ...

La Fontaine: Fables
(Librairie Aristide Quillet, 1930)
This is a rather standard mid-sized (5 x 7) edition of La Fontaine's fables, but it adds several curious features. There are several illustrations, not of fables, but of La Fontaine and his home in Château-Thierry. The ...
