fables choisies de La Fontaine II.
(Librairie Larousse, 1971)
A typical French graduate student text, complete with possible exam questions. A few black-and-white illustrations from Doré, Grandville, and Rabier. I am fortunate to have found three different printings. The title-page ...
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 ...
The Father, his Son and their Donkey/Hermes and the Wood-cutter/The Rich Man and his Servant.
(Oxford University Press, 1971)
Nice changes inculturate these fables: Ibrahim and Ali are given native skin and clothing. Hermes becomes the god of a river. The servant and the rich man con each other.
Fables from La Fontaine, Including His Life of Aesop.
A good selection of Oudry (twenty illustrations, one for each fable here), but the reproductions are not as sharp as I would have hoped. Kitty Muggeridge is Malcolm's wife; her vita is on the back flyleaf. The life of ...
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 ...
The Frogs Who Wanted a King.
(Four Winds Press: Scholastic Magazines, 1977)
An ingenious idea, and some ingenious illustrations to match in watercolors. I will try to work one song or slide into a lecture, like the one on the two rats.
(L'École des Loisirs, 1977)
A lovely find! I first saw these illustrations in the original as separate pages matted at Orrie's in St. Paul. The illustrations are ingenious multipart presentations. The reproductions are only adequate. The best may ...
One Hundred Fables by La Fontaine
(Ginn and Company, 1906)
A helpful little book inscribed in Cambridge. I think the book's first gift lies in its identification of one hundred of LaFontaine's 238 fables for special attention. The copious English notes at the rear help someone ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(H. Fournier AinéH. Fournier aîné, 1838)
This second volume follows the pattern set by the first. Its impressions are generally lighter than in the nouvelle edition from Pangloss. A good example of that light impression is in 9.19 (facing 113). Among the best ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(H. Fournier Ainé, 1838)
This edition answers my earlier question What does 'nouvelle edition' mean, since the book was apparently originally published in 1838? Here is the answer: there was an 1838 edition that was not nouvelle (second). I am ...
