Fables de Florian, Suivies de Tobie et de Ruth
(J.-J. Dubochet et Cie, 1842)
For some time, I have wanted to get an early Grandville Florian. Here is the earliest! It was a major find for me with an old friend at an impressive international book fair. François Coté describes the qualities of the ...
Fables de Florian
(HoudailleHoudaillle et Cie, Éditeurs, 1840)
This is Bodemann #289.3. The first and second editions of it were apparently both done in 1838, and so Bodemann dates this edition--done by a new publisher--after 1838. The special charm of this book lies in its ...
Fables de Florian
(Belin-Leprieur et Morizot, LibrairesBerlin-Leprieur et Morizot, 1847)
Bodemann has a listing (#313.1) that is very close. It seems to describe this book but ascribes it to Henry for the texts and Fernique & Cie for the lithographs. The publisher listed here is Belin-Leprieur et Morizot, ...
Florian: Fables, Précédées d'une Étude sur la Fable, Suivies de Tobie et de Ruth et Accompagnées de Notes
(Librairie Hachette et Cie, 1881)
I am surprised to learn that this handy little volume is my first Hachette copy of Florian. The five books of fables seem to be all there on this book's 140 pages, with an AI at the back and a few simple designs along the way.
The Fables of Florian
(John B. Alden, 1888)
T of C at the beginning. Fifty-one fables, preceded by a useful introduction to Florian (1755-94). Two Travellers (14) is often presented as Aesopic. Grandville's illustrations are always wonderful. One of the best ...
Florian's Fables Book V
(E. Ponsonby et al, 1894)
Here is a handy little volume that could be a distinct help the next time I work with Florian. There are 34 pages of texts and commentary, followed by an unpaginated 36-page vocabulary. The notes beginning on 24 are ...
Fables de Florian, Nouvelle Édition, revue, corrigée et suivie de Tobie et de Ruth
(L.F. Hivert, LibraireLibrairie Classique de Mme Ve Maire-Nyon, 1838)
This little book, 3½ x 5½, contains all 110 of Florian's fables. I would not have thought that Florian's fable corpus could fit into such a small volume. It has a once-beautiful leather binding that is significantly eaten ...
A Selection of Fables from Florian and Other Authors
(J. Hatchard and Son 187 Picadilly,, 1837)
It is rare to find Florian translated into English. In this small (3½ x 5½) pamphlet one finds twelve from Florian, three from Dodsley, and three Scraps from a Portfolio. Most of Florian's twelve are in my collections ...
Fables de Florian, No. 1
(Imagerie d'EpinalPellerin & Cie., 1890)
Here Imagerie d'Épinal brings their strong sense of color to bear on illustrating eight of Florian's fables in a sixteen-page pamphlet some 7¼ x 10. The pamphlet is in very good condition. Animal heads, human bodies, and ...
Oeuvres de Florian: Les Fables
(Collection des Grandes ClassiquesCollection des Grands Classiques Français et Étrangers, 1890)
This book is identical with another I have listed under the same date but edité spécialement pour les Magasins du Bon Marché. Perhaps the same publisher made the book for both agencies. Let me repeat some of my comments ...
