Fables de La Fontaine: Édition annotée a l'usage de la jeunesse
(Theodore Lefevre et Cie Éditeurs,Théodore Lefèvre & Cie, Éditeurs, 1881)
This book is very close to another that I have listed under 1881? I identified it there with Bodemann #339.1. This copy seems identical except for two and possibly three factors. As for similarities, it has the same red ...
Fables Choisies de la Fontaine.
(Vanlinthout et Cie, 1852)
My first book published in Louvain. A cursory examination suggests that almost all of LaFontaine's fables are here. Additional selections include fourteen from Florian, eleven from Abbé Reyre, and nine from others. This ...
La Fontaine's Fables Now First Translated from the French By Robert Thomson With Elegant Engraved Figures
(Chenu, Libraire-Editeur[G. Doyen, 1806)
Here is a compilation of an edition of the four volumes which I had already found from Michael Hackenburg at Turtle Island. This volume not only pulls the four together into one volume. It is generally a simpler version. ...
Fables of La Fontaine, Two Volumes in One
(Tappan and Dennet; NY: Willliam A. Colman/London: Edward Moxon, 1841)
My brother John and I parked in front of this shop at almost exactly 6 p.m. to visit another store in Sonoma, which turned out to be closed by then. Upon our return to Chanticleer, they announced that they were closed, ...
Fables of La Fontaine
(Thomas R. Knox & Co., 1879)
A very curious book. Compare it with my 1841 and 1860 editions of Wright's translation that use Grandville as illustrator. The surprises start when Book I's title page comes before the book's title page! The 240 or so ...
Fables de J. de la Fontaine
(Bernardin-Béchet et Fils, 1885)
A handy little volume of the complete fables. The engravings are very nicely done, but most lack sparkle. The best are of the monkey and dolphin (120) and the miser's hole (135). Identical with Urbino (1870) and ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
Imagerie Artistique: 20 Fables de La Fontaine II.
(Ancienne Maison Quantin, 1890)
A beautiful collection aptly named. The format has square text inserted in a large picture, which often includes two phases or two scenes, human and fabulous. Do not miss the lovely front cover on the good copy. The ...
Les plus belles Fables de La Fontaine
(L. Martinet: Librairies-Imprimeries RéuniesLibrairies-Imprimeries Réunies L. Martinet,, 1890)
Bodemann 368.2. This book is closest to La Fontaine: Fables Choisies (Bodemann 368.3), which I have listed under 1900? Other members of the family include the two volumes of Imagerie Artistique (Bodemann 368.1), which I ...
Fables Inédites des XIIe, XIIIe et XIVe Siècles et Fables de la Fontaine
(Etienne Cabin, 1825)
I already have a copy of this book. This second copy differs in one essential respect: It adds a name under La Fontaine's picture in the frontispiece! How curious! It differs in other respects, too. It has no slipsheet ...
