Les Fables de La Fontaine
(George W. Jacobs & Company, 1910)
The most curious thing about this beautiful little book is its international sources: American, English, French. It is in a small format, and has only sixty pages. The colored pictures are excellent; the best is of the ...
La Fontaine's Fables: A Selection
(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1905)
This wide book presents a classic La Fontaine from the early part of the century. Park's colored illustrations are large and lovely; the best are of FC and GA. The best of Bull's black-and-white illustrations are feet ...
Fables de La Fontaine, No. 1
Here ten fables are shown and read by Yves-Gérard le Dantec. A 45 rpm record is part of the book; it has its own little envelope inside the front cover. Monochrome and polychrome pages alternate. The illustrations are ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Editions G.P., 1949)
This book is the fourth distinct version I have found. It has the internal features of the book I have listed under 1949/1956? but it has a different dust-jacket. The dust jacket here includes references to new publications ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Fables, Livres I à VI
(Editions Slatkine, 1995)
This is a very attractive little book, with a colored version of Oudry's The Monkey and the Dolphin in two different color-intensities on its cover. The book offers the integral text of La Fontaine's first six books with ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(Éditions du Milieu du Monde, 1955)
This may be the handiest complete edition of La Fontaine's fables that I have. Besides its bendable covers, it has an AI of fables at the back and even a place-marking ribbon. I wonder where and when I found this little book….
fábulas de La Fontaine 1.
(Editorial Origen, 1989)
About eighty of LaFontaine's stories in prose, with a good cover illustration (GA) and simple illustrations with the fables. The thin paper hurts the art. The best illustration is of the wolf as a shepherd (44). No ...

(Editorial Origen, 1989)
About seventy-five of La Fontaine's stories in prose, with a good cover illustration (The Stork and the Fish) and simple illustrations with the fables. The thin paper hurts the art. The best illustrations are for The ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1926)
Here is a copy of one of my favorite fable books, alas in wretched condition. It is a second (?) printing of Nézière's glorious book. His illustrations are intact, but the covers of the work are deteriorating. I include ...
Fables in Rhyme for Little Folks.
(P.F. Volland, 1918)
A wonderful little book! Eighteen fables, each done with four excellent, witty pictures. This printing comes off as very successful, especially in contrast with some other printings. Book detectives will want to compare ...
