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, ...
Fables de la Fontaine N°2
(Imagerie Pellerin, 1982)
This lovely little stapled booklet of 32 pages seems identical with another that I have except that this copy features an image of the wolf and the goat in the well on its cover, whereas that copy has GA in human fashion ...
Fables in Rhyme for Little Folks Adapted from the French of La Fontaine.
(Wise Book Co., 1918)
A nice Volland reprint. Unfortunately the pictures often do not come out clearly. The printers seem to have had trouble with color separation and the exact matching of separate color impressions. One gets an impression ...
Keur van Fabels van La Fontaine (II)
(Chagor: S.I.R.E.C., 1948)
Middle-size format little kids' book. The illustrations tend to be very simple. The two illustrations for FS on 14-15 may be the best. Two pages of text alternate with two pages of pictures.

Jean de la Fontaine: Fabeln
A wonderfully colorful East German edition. Best of the 'humorvolle, kecke und liebenswuerdige' watercolors: GA (11), FG (cover and 67), DW (173), and 'The Two Goats' (209). My first two copies both cost 35 Marks, but ...
The Fables of La Fontaine
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1957)
Straight copying of the original; the colors are slightly better there than here in a book I come to like more each time I look at it. Do not miss the fun of the dressed-up fish. Classy stuff!
fables de la fontaine
The first French-language version I have come upon, found in an off-the-beaten-path foreign language bookstore in Georgetown. The illustrations show a great use of color, but not as much fun as I would like. The best ...
The Best Fables of La Fontaine
(University Press of Virginia, 1965)
The translations seem to be well done--rhymed and colloquial enough. I am not sure where the best of the title comes in; the collection looks complete. The illustrations are few and primitive.
