Fables of La Fontaine
(Thomas R. Knox & Co., 1879)
A very curious book. Compare it with my 1841 and 1860 editions of Wright's translation that use Grandville as illustrator. The surprises start when Book I's title page comes before the book's title page! The 240 or so ...
Fables de J. de la Fontaine
(Bernardin-Béchet et Fils, 1885)
A handy little volume of the complete fables. The engravings are very nicely done, but most lack sparkle. The best are of the monkey and dolphin (120) and the miser's hole (135). Identical with Urbino (1870) and ...
Imagerie Artistique: 20 Fables de La Fontaine II.
(Ancienne Maison Quantin, 1890)
A beautiful collection aptly named. The format has square text inserted in a large picture, which often includes two phases or two scenes, human and fabulous. Do not miss the lovely front cover on the good copy. The ...
Fables (1860): Jean de La Fontaine
(General Books LLC Publication, 1860)
Perhaps copied from the second volume of an 1860 edition by Derby and Jackson, which I have in one volume purchased from First Folio of Buchanan, TN, in June, 1988. Becoming acquainted with this publication has been ...
Fables de la Fontaine. Nouvelle Édition, Enrichie des Notes de Coste, Dans laquelle on Aperçoit d'un Coup-d'Oeil la Moralité de la Fable
(Imprimerie de l'Institut LazarewIzdanīe Andrei͡a Glazunava s Bratʹi͡ami, 1840)
This is an otherwise straightforward presentation of La Fontaine's twelve books of fables with a T of C at the back following La Fontaine's epitaph with a design of its own. The two noteworthy features of the volume are ...
Fables de La Fontaine Précédées de la vie de l'auteur. Nouvelle édition, dans laquelle on aperçoit d'un coup d'oeil la moralité de la Fable
(Avallon. Comynet, Imprimeur-Librairie, 1834)
This book is in many respects similar to one I had found in 1993 at the Strand, dated 1835 from the same publisher with the same title. In fact, the title-page may be the same except for the year. That little book of the ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(George R. Lockwood, 1870)
This book seems to be inscribed in 1873, and thus I guess at 1870 as a publication date. The book is largely identical with my three Mame editions of this book (1890, 1890/92, and 1890/1901). See my comments there, ...
Fables de La Fontaine, Tome Premier
(Armand Aubrée, Éditeur, 1839)
This is one of my favorite acquisitions for the collection. It seems to reproduce the 1842 edition (Bassy #42, p. 268) in many respects, except that it is published by Armand Aubrée, publisher of the 1839 edition. ...
Fables de La Fontaine, Tome Second
(Armand Aubrée, Éditeur, 1839)
See my comments on the first volume. As pointed out there, this volume's special frontispiece gives the 1839 date. This volume has the same inscriptions: 9.1.24 and March, '44. Among my favorite illustrations are: both ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Belin FrèresBelin Fréres, 1890)
A routine, simple complete edition of La Fontaine's fables in poor to satisfactory condition. AI at the back.
