Oeuvres Complete de La Fontaine
(Garnier Frères, 1877)
Here is a serious tome containing all of La Fontaine's works. The work seems closest to Bodemann #135.14, of which I have the first two volumes. Those are the two volumes in that set which contain fables. This edition ...
Fables de la Fontaine, Précédées de la vie d'Ésope
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1878)
It has taken me fifteen years to catalogue this unassuming little book (3¾ x5?). It is in only fair condition. The cover is darkened and has a signature across its top and an ink blotch near its bottom. But it is a ...
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 ...
Oeuvres Complete de La Fontaine Vol 2
(Garnier Frères, 1872)
A second beautifully bound volume, containing the last six books of fables and the usual appended works. Four illustrations, unattributed: Madame de la Sabliere, The Fish and the Flautist, and Daphnis and Alcimadure ...
Oeuvres Complete de La Fontaine Vol 1
(Garnier Frères, 1872)
A beautifully bound volume, containing the first six books of fables. The entire set includes seven volumes. Four illustrations here, unattributed: LaFontaine, 2W, MSA, and TB. There is a massive introductory work on ...
Fables de J. de la Fontaine
(Librarie de S.R. UrbinoS.R. Urbino, Libraire, 1870)
A handy little volume of the complete fables. Very good paper. The engravings are nicely done--but most lack sparkle. The best are of the monkey and dolphin (120) and of the miser's hole (135). Identical with the 1875 ...
Fables de La Fontaine.
(J. De Gigord, 1874)
Any book in its thirty-fifth edition has to be a winner! Good short notes in French with the texts. Many fables of Florian, and a few each from seven other fabulists. Some ink spots.
LaFontaine. fables choisies pour les enfants
(Librairie Plon, 1871)
At last I have a very good copy of this simply wonderful book! The illustrations' colors are delightful. The best of them may be FM and WC. Boutet de Monvel is rightly highly praised by Arbuthnot and Sutherland. The ...
fables choisies pour les enfants
(L'école des loisirs, 1871)
A really classy book, almost worth what I paid for it. I am not sure that any of its pages is apt for a slide, especially since the very small text is always included. Both the original and the copy are very well done. ...
Les Faufes dè J. Lafontaine in Patoès d'Charleroèt
(Imprimerie et Lithographie Aug. PietteImprimerie et lithographie A. Piette, 1872)
The author offers this book as a specimen of the patois of Charleroi, a French city in Belgium. There seem to be here one-hundred-and-one fables from La Fontaine, rendered into rhyming patois verse. The fables are organized ...
