La Fontaine: Fables
(Éditions du Panthéon, 1961)
This is a nice looking edition, often using two colors for the texts. No editor is acknowledged. I like the Dandelot water-color illustrations. They are big, bold, and colorful. Unless the cover counts as one of the ...
Fables: La Fontaine: Tome 1
See 1964 for Tome 2, which I found eight years ago. In fact, I thought I was picking up an inexpensive extra. The first surprise was that the dealer wanted $1.50 for a book marked $.50. The second surprise came when I ...
La Fontaine: Fables choisies
Here is a very helpful book for those who have some French and want to read a good portion of La Fontaine in the original. There are about fifty-five fables presented, with good vocabulary/grammar notes in French and ten ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Editions Fabbri, 1960)
This book, along with a larger-format book of the same title by the same artist and publisher one year later, must be involved in some curious history. This book is almost 10 by almost 10½. Did Editions Fabbri produce ...
Fables of La Fontaine
(Golden Pleasure Books, 1962)
Here is an extra copy of this book without a dust-jacket. Excellent runs on the ten colored illustrations of Trnka, which also appear in the 1974 and 1974/85 editions by Grund and Exeter. The best of these is the cover ...
La Fontaine: Fables choisies mises en vers.
(Garnier Frères, 1962)
A hefty paperback. In analysing this book I have realized that La Fontaine's original book was titled Selected Fables, so my search here to see what was left out was futile! The black-and-white reproductions are only ...
The Best Fables of La Fontaine
(University Press of Virginia, 1965)
The translations seem to be well done--rhymed and colloquial enough. I am not sure where the best of the title comes in; the collection looks complete. The illustrations are few and primitive.
(Éditions du Seuil, 1961)
This study of LaFontaine gets interesting for me around 114, where there are a number of fine old illustrations of the fables, unfortunately small in size. One nice series traces The Plague among the Beasts through ...
Fables of La Fontaine
(Grolier Society, 1967)
The illustrations are rather poor runs of Doré for the thirteen fables included. Two of them are found seldom elsewhere: The Rat and the Elephant and The Two Doctors. This is a companion volume in red to the ...
Fables de Jean de la Fontaine, Tome Premier
(La Belle Édition, 1962)
I am including a second copy of this fine work for these reasons: this first volume has a second volume to match; its cover and spine show far more color than does my first copy; and it itself has suffered some water damage. ...
