Love & Folly: Selected Fables and Tales of La Fontaine
(Welcome Rain Publishers, 2002)
This book uses Ponsot's translations done originally for Selected Fables and Tales of La Fontaine by the New American Library in 1966. It adds several good features to those good translations. There is first of all a ...
The Lion and the Rat: A Fable by La Fontaine.
(Oxford University Press, 1963)
This big book is an excellent format for Wildsmith's large and colorful work. There are several good illustrations--of the lion hunting and of the animals rushing to see--but I do not find the quality of the art sustained. ...
Fables Choisies de La Fontaine
(William R. Jenkins Co., 1892)
There are fifty fables with helpful notes in this small school reader. T of C at the end. The seller, Tom Hopper, noted wistfully that he would like to learn French and Latin to read books like these.
La Fontaine's Fables in Modern Clothes.
(Todd & Honeywell, 1985)
This book fills the need for simple English prose versions of LaFontaine for children. About one-half of LaFontaine's fables are represented, with simple illustrations about every ten pages. The beginning Brief Outline ...
A Hundred Fables of La Fontaine
(Park South Books, 1988)
Identical with the Hampstead edition of the same title (1988). It looks from the advertisements and the absolute identity of the books as though Park South is the New York branch of whoever is behind Hampstead Editions. ...
La Fontaine: A Present for the Young From the French
(Weeks, Jordan and Company, 1839)
This is an unusual--and an unusually expensive--little volume. It has its title clearly engraved in gold on its green cloth cover. There are 108 pages of verse fables without illustrations. Now, here is a pleasant ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
(Éditées specialement pour les Magasins du bon Marché, 1901)
This book reduplicates editions I already have listed under 1897 and 1907. It was already then a derivative but lovely book. Its eighty-one gravures from the eighteenth century La Fontaine en Estampes seem to be mostly ...
La Fontaine Masallari: Fransiz Masallari
(Inkilap ve Akaİnkilâp ve Aka Kitabevleri, 1981)
This 96-page paperback book is virtually identical with a copy I received as a gift from Greg Schissel five years earlier. The differences I note are two. There is no pre-title page here with a monkey illustration. And ...
La Fontaine Masallari: 10 Masal
(Erdem Yayinlari, 1998)
This hardbound book contains, apparently, ten sixteen-page pamphlets that may also have been published independently. Each has a title-page with La Fontaine Masallari and a number from 1 to 10 across the top of the page. ...
La Fontaine'den Secmeler
(Ergun Yayinlari, 1999)
The cover of this 96-page paperback sports a colored picture of lion, tiger, monkeys, and mouse enjoying themselves. Morals, which appear frequently, seem to be offset and printed in bold. I find five full-page illustrations ...
