Fables de La Fontaine
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1877)
Here is a reprinting of the lovely book I had found from Mame that was published in 1870. This book has a fine gold-embossed red cloth cover. Though the spine is cracked, the interior is in very good condition. As I ...
The Fables of La Fontaine I
(Estes and Lauriat, 1881)
This is the first of two volumes with gold embossed blue-and-white covers in excellent condition. It combines the first two volumes of the set of four which I found at Goodspeed's in March, '89, except that this edition ...
Fables de La Fontaine avec de nouvelles Gravures exécutées en Relief
(Chez Lebigre Frères, Libraires; Barbou, Imprimeur-Libraire, 1836)
There are several remarkable things about this little (3½ x 5¾) paperbound book. First, it has survived 165 years! Secondly, it seems to claim different publishing houses and places of publication between the cover (Paris: ...
Fables of La Fontaine, 4th ed., Vol. II
(Tappan and Dennet, 1843)
A lovely little pair of books. See my comment on Volume I. Twenty-five well executed and well preserved illustrations; it is a shame that they are so small. The best of them is of the squealing pig on the way to slaughter (71).
Fables of La Fontaine, 4th ed., Vol. I
(Tappan and Dennet, 1843)
A lovely little pair of books. The notice says that the warm reception of Grandville's illustrations in the 1841 original was expected, but the favor accorded Wright's translation was not! The present volumes cost 10% ...

Fables de La Fontaine Enrichies de Gravures
(J.B. Rolland & Fils, 1890)
This is one of the legion of French editions whose title-page claims dans laquelle on aperçoit d'un coup d'oeil la moralité de la fable. It is an undistinguished 306-page text for students with a T of C at the end except ...
Fables de Florian, Suivies de Tobie et de Ruth
(Garnier Frères, 1850)
At last I have a worthy copy of this classic. The strange thing now is that I can find no reference to it in the literature. Hobbs, Bodemann, Schiller, and my favorite private collector seem to know nothing of this book. ...
Imagerie Artistique: 20 Fables de La Fontaine
(Maison Quantin, 1889)
This is the second of three copies I have found of this book, a first volume answering two copies I had earlier found of the second volume. The cover has a teacher pointing to one of eleven miniatures of this book's twenty ...
