(Printed for G. Polidori and James Wallis, 1800)
This is a small volume (3¼ x 5½) containing some eighty-nine verse fables on 194 pages. A T of C at the back lists the fables. They seem from the titles to be closely patterned after La Fontaine. Is this a second edition ...
Klassicheskaya Basnya (Classic Fables) (Russian): Aesop, LaFontaine, Krylov, Tolsmou, Muhalkov
(Strekosa PressStrekoza-Press, 2004)
Here is a medium-format book (5½ x 8), with a good selection from each of its five contributing fabulists: thirteen fables come from Aesop, fifteen from LaFontaine, twenty from Krylov, fifteen from Tolstoy, and twenty-five ...
Las Mejores Fabulos de Todos los Tiempos: Esopo, Fedro, La Fontaine, Iriarte, Samaniego
(Producción Editorial Dante, S.A., 1988)
Here is a standard inexpensive paperback fable edition. I find both the title and the selections curious. The title surely claims a great deal in its phrase de Todos los Tiempos! Five fabulists cover all ages! The ...
Las Mejores Fábulas: Esopo, Jean de la Fontaine, Tomás de Iriarte, Félix María de Samaniego
(Edimat Libros, S.A., 2006)
This is a serious hardbound book of some 309 pages. It contains many texts and no illustrations. The T of C at the back gives the basic organization but with one glaring error. The organization is by author. The book ...
The Fables of Aesop (Cover and spine: Aesop's Fables)
(Albert Whitman, 1925)
Here is a singular find. I had never seen this book before, and I cannot find it mentioned in Hobbs, Quinnam, or Lindseth. I checked for a formulaic text adapted from LaFontaine and Croxall identified as this book's ...
Fiabe di La Fontaine
(Editrice AMZ, 1960)
This book largely reproduces, in both verbatim texts and exactly the same illustrations, Favole di animali: Fiabe di la Fontaine, Fedro e Esopo by the same publisher, which I have listed under 1960/80. See my comments ...
Fables of Aesop and La Fontaine
(London: Geographia Ltd./NY: Geographia Inc., 1920)
There are thirty fables from Aesop and ten from La Fontaine in this oversized book with cardboard covers. The spine is particularly worn. T of C at the front. Inserted among the text-pages are these full-page colored ...
The Fables of Aesop and The Original Fables of La Fontaine
(London: J.M. Dent and Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton, 1939)
This volume lets us see publishers at work. I have--under 1915?--this publisher's Aesop's Fables, which is included here almost without change. I have five different copies of The Original Fables of La Fontaine, which ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers,, 1891)
A pleasant little book, well used. Various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). I enjoy several, e.g., FS (46).
Le Liévre [sic] et la Tortuë Mis en Fable par Différens Auteurs
(en l'École Municipale Estienne, 1914)
Before writing anything else, I must point out what seems to me a major mistake in this student book. The first four presentations of Lièvre get the accent wrong! Those presentations are on the cover, on the first and ...
