Fables de La Fontaine
(Jules Tallandier, 1906)
Here is a later printing of a book I found printed in 1992 on a trip to Paris in 1997. In Paris again in 2009 and unsure whether I had this edition, I picked up another copy. This copy, which is printed in Italy rather ...
Fables: La Fontaine: Intégrale
This book contains two volumes, one of which I had already found and listed under 1964/80. The two volumes cover the first and last six books of La Fontaine's fables, respectively. The cover layout is the same: six colored ...
The Twelve de la Fontaine Fables as Painted in the Dining Saloon M.V. Dalerdijk
(Holland-America Line, 1950)
This pamphlet (4½ x 6½) contains a black-and-white illustration and an English text in rhyming couplets for each of twelve La Fontaine fables. They include: FC, Death and the Woodcutter, The two Bulls and the Frog, UP, ...
The Fables of La Fontaine
(Dorothy E. Jonness.n.], 1943)
There are verse translations of fifteen of La Fontaine's fables here. I find the second, Council Held by the Rats (4), particularly effective. I had forgotten that in La Fontaine the belling idea comes from their eldest, ...
Le favole di La Fontaine
(Arnoldo MondadoriIl Melograno, 1971)
Realistic and playful drawings of animals in courtly human garb. I do not see any I would take now, but they are better-than-average. It may be difficult to get some away from the text, since they are so well arranged ...
Bajky LaFontaineovy S Obrazky Doreovymi
(Kral. VinohradyKrál. Vinohrady, 1928)
Seventy-two fables on 72 pages, with a T of C at the end. This paperbound volume has a nice oval portait of La Fontaine on its cover. It is in only fair condition, and its binding is deteriorating.
Jean de La Fontaine: The Fables
(Jupiter Books, 1975)
Offhand, I do not think the abundant Doré illustrations quite match those in the Chartwell edition (1982), perhaps especially because of the paper used here. An excellent bilingual presentation, always with Doré's small ...
Fabels van La Fontaine
(Prisma paperback: Spectrum, 1940)
Excellent reproductions of Grandville's engravings, better than in the 1946 first printing. Also a different cover. The last of these Dutch fables has a different translator, M. Nijhoff.
La Fontaine: The Wolf, the Goat and the Kid and the Fox and the Squirrel
(Litor Publishers Ltd., 1985)
This little children's book of 7 x 7½ has simple illustrations. My prize goes to the kid's view of the wolf's eye through the peephole. The second fable has a lovely turn when it says that Aesop has stories that show ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Fratelli Fabbri Editori, 1964)
See my version dated 1965 and otherwise almost identical. They share a 1962 copyright by O.D.E.J., Paris. As I write there, this is a large-format children's book, now the third distinct set of work I have by Cremonini ...
