(Golden Pleasure Books, 1962)
This booklet presents two irregularities or anomalies. First, it is missing four pages at its center. WL seems just to have ended, and we find ourselves suddenly on the last page of The Wolf Who Became a Shepherd. The ...
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 ...
Quatre Fables de La Fontaine
(Librairie Hachette, 1953)
Apparently a fellow member in the same series as Trois Fables de La Fontaine, which I have listed under 1953/64. The numbering has changed, however. That pamphlet was #29 but now seems to be #143. This pamphlet was ...
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'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 ...
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. ...
Lafonten Hikayeleri: Karga ile Tilki
(Isil YayineviIşıl Yayınevi, 1980)
This is a 32-page pamphlet containing four fables, each with a simple black-and-white drawing. FC is on the cover. The four fables here are FC, GA, The Lion and the Donkey, and (perhaps) The Stag Seeing Himself in the Water.
Fables de La Fontaine classées par Ordre de Difficulté avec Notice en Tète de chaque Fable et notes
(Librairie Armand Colin, 1920)
Here is a later copy of a very curious book that I already have in its thirtieth edition from 1916. It classifies and organizes La Fontaine's fables in three levels: suitable for little children, moderately difficult, ...
Fablio the Magician: The Frog and the Ox, Adapted from La Fontaine's Fable
(R.L. Cavallere Ltd., Londondistributed by David Gold & Son (Holdings) Ltd., 1969)
Here is an English version of the French work I have from 1970. As in that version, Crak the Frog and John the Bull help Fablio to tell the story in this large-formatted book for children. The cartoon pictures are evidently ...
