La Fontaine: L'Âne et le Roi
(Dessain et Tolra, 1982)
Here is an extra copy, slightly bowed, of this whimsical book of 80 pages, about 8½ x 10. With colored illustrations of a donkey-king and a vulture (?) on its front cover and of a frog on its back cover, it has two-color ...
La Fontaine Masallari
(Bahar: Cocuk Klasikleri, 1984)
Here is a well-worn paperback of some 207 pages. Mechanically, the printing is less refined than we are accustomed to. Each page has a butterfly and a wavy rendition of the book's title running down the margin under the ...
La Fontaine: Fables Complètes
(Éditions Athêna, 1953)
This is a nice looking edition. It may be easiest to compare and contrast it with Dandelot's other La Fontaine edition, from Panthéon in 1961. This edition uses blue for titles and black for texts. Here, as there, no ...
Le Monde Magique des Fables de la Fontaine
(Comptoir du Livre Crealivres, 1989)
There are 190 pages in this large-format (8 x 11) book, including a T of C at the end. Most fables receive one or two pages. The illustrations show up in a pleasing diversity. There are full-page illustrations both in ...
La Fontaine Fables
See my earlier version of this book, listed under 1953/66. I ordered this one through eBay because it was listed as published in 1953. I will keep trying for a first edition. Whereas that book was printed in France, ...
Jean de La Fontaine: Les Fables illustrées par Gabriel Lefebvre
(La Renaissance du Livre, 2000)
Here is an extra copy of the earlier large paperback book that is behind the smaller hardbound volume of the same title from the same publisher in 2003. The price came down 10 Euros in three years! That 2003 book belonged ...
Fables de La Fontaine
Three things distinguish this collection of fables: (1) their organization into eighteen categories (and two intermèdes ) by animal groupings; (2) the eight small but lovely Solis woodcuts (6, 51, 57, 58, 73, 84, 90, ...
Fables de La Fontaine, No. 4
Here is Volume Four, found four years after I found Volume Two, published in 1957. Apparently I have one more livre-disque to find to have the set of four complete. This Livre-Disque contains six fables, pictured on the ...
Fables/Chimney Corner Fairy Tales/Winnie-the-Pooh/English Fairy Tales.
(Great Books Foundation, 1967)
Three of LaFontaine's fables make up the very beginning of the Junior Great Books Program: SW, The Lion and the Rat, and The Rich Man and the Shoemaker. In fact, the first is taken as the subject for the introductory ...
Fables: La Fontaine: Tome 2
Only the cover and later printing date seem to distinguish this printing from that of 1964. See my comments there.
