Fables de La Fontaine Illustrées
(Chez Delarue, Libraire, 1848)
"This book looked very familiar, but it did not seem to line up well with the one book I have of La Fontaine from Delarue. I noticed on the last page that it was printed by Mame in Tours. I checked, and Mame in Tours did ...
Fables de la Fontaine dédiées a la Jeunesse, Tome II
(Chez Le Prieur, 1801)
Bodemann#191.1. Coste's commentary had been used in several editions prior to this one. See my entries for 1790 and 1793, for example. Bodemann places the first Coste edition in 1743. The book is small to start with ...

Fables de la Fontaine
(Saintin libraire de la cour,, 1820)
This is a small (3 x 4½) but plump book with appropriately small print on its 376 pages. The AI at the back is followed by four pages of advertisements. This book's special feature lies in the ten pages of engravings ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part I
(Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, 1883)
A beautiful edition with a partially missing spine. I picked up this pair of volumes thinking that it was just another Cassell edition of the Thornbury translation. Then I noticed in Hobbs (100) that the first English ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part II
(Cassell Petter, and Galpin,, 1883)
See my comments on the first volume of this beautiful set. No title page (or indication on Part I's title page that this is a two-part set). Pagination continues from Part I.
Fables de La Fontaine Enrichies de Gravures
(J.B. Rolland & Fils, 1890)
This is one of the legion of French editions whose title-page claims dans laquelle on aperçoit d'un coup d'oeil la moralité de la fable. It is an undistinguished 306-page text for students with a T of C at the end except ...
The Fables of La Fontaine (Flowered Cover)
(H.M. Caldwell Company, 1881)
This book repeats in all but two respects an edition with the same bibliographical information. First, it has a lovely floral cover, part of which is done against a white leatherette background. Secondly, the H.M. Caldwell ...
Fables de La Fontaine, Tome II: Livres VIII-XII
(H. Fournier Ainé, 1838)
This edition seems to me to be identical with that which I have listed under the same publishers and year, having acquired it from Pangloss Books in Cambridge. I make a separate listing here to be on the safe side, since ...
