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 ...
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, ...

(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.

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 ...
Fables de La Fontaine et de Florian

Pictorial boards, including a cover of a dismayed MM, surrounded by various other fable images. Inscribed from mother to child in 1948. There are 122 fables from La Fontaine and 29 from Florian, all listed in both a T ...
Fables Choisies de la Fontaine et Florian
(Imprimerie Gordinne, 1946)
Large-format children's book containing twenty-five fables. The book is reminiscent of two I have listed under 1936?, which were also produced in Belgium. Like those, this book combines eight colored full-page illustrations ...
