Fables de La Fontaine
This book is identical internally with the first 32 pages of a Fables de La Fontaine published by the same publisher, Gordinne in Liege. The only internal change is the year at the bottom of 32. That book goes on to ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
(Dargaud S.A. Éditeur, 1946)
One of the most playful books I have seen in a while. Sections of La Fontaine's text are numbered to correspond to cartoon pictures. There is lots of wit here. A steam kettle boiling in one picture (DW) is smelled in ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Editions du Cep, 1945)
This 24-page pamphlet contains ten fables arranged in an unusual rhythm that alternates two pages of cartoons with two pages of text. The cartoon pages, which show excellent sense of color and form, contain important phrases ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(The Commodore Press Ltd, 1946)
This is an unusual LaFontaine for me in that it was done in French language on English soil. The year of publication offers some background for this anomaly. Saurat offers a good little introduction replete with well ...
Fabelen van de la Fontaine voor de Jeugd.
(G.B. van Goor Zonen, 1940)
A lovely edition, which seems to come from the library of the author/illustrator himself. Lively and witty orange-and-black illustrations, with some silhouettes included. Notice the rock-throwing bear on 35. T of C at the end.
La Fontaine: Les Fables et les Bêtes
(Maison Mame, 1946)
A standard selection of eighteen La Fontaine fables with a full page of color for each fable. The color work on the title-page illustration of the fox in the grass is outstanding! Other good work is 39 (Le Coche et la ...
Keur van Fabels van La Fontaine (II)
(Chagor: S.I.R.E.C., 1948)
Middle-size format little kids' book. The illustrations tend to be very simple. The two illustrations for FS on 14-15 may be the best. Two pages of text alternate with two pages of pictures.

Fabels van La Fontaine
(Prisma paperback: Spectrum, 1940)
Poorer reproductions of Grandville's engravings than in the 1976 third printing. Also a different cover. The last of these Dutch fables has a different translator, M. Nijhoff.
XX Fables de Jean de la Fontaine
(A l'Imprimerie artistique en couleurs, 1944)
A nicely executed book in very good condition. Sixteen two-color illustrations adorn the fables, including a country rat and a city rat (while TMCM is not included among the fables!) around the title. The best of the ...
