Fables de La Fontaine Illustrées
(Chez Delarue, Libraire, 1848)
"This book looked very familiar, but it did not seem to line up well with the one book I have of La Fontaine from Delarue. I noticed on the last page that it was printed by Mame in Tours. I checked, and Mame in Tours did ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Fables
(Bookking International, 1993)
Here is an extra copy of this book. This is one of the few editions of La Fontaine's fables which I have that does not add some notes. There is a two-page life at the beginning and an AI at the back. The French will, ...

(Whitman Publishing Company, 1934)
Wonderful colored illustrations in a delightful book. The best are those at the end of each of the six stories (e.g., of the wolf with the last lamb bones). In the Three-in-One copy, a youthful crayon lover has marked ...
Fables by La Fontaine
(G.G. Harrap, 1951)
A handy 110-page schoolbook with fifty or so of LaFontaine's fables in their French and fifteen of Oudry's 1783 illustrations, alas very small here. A worthwhile book for taking along to show when there is not much space.
