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 ...
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.
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 ...
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 ...
Fables de La Fontaine (Premiere et Deuxième Partie)
(Jules Tallandier, 1906)
This looks at first acquaintance like the complete Rabier LaFontaine. A closer look reveals that it is a combination of the first and second of three parts. Ironically, those are the two independent parts that I already ...
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, ...
La Fontaine Fables
My, Romain Simon illustrated many different books! This is a 28-page oversized (9 x 12½) children's book. There are eleven fables in all, each allotted one to three pages. At least five of them are included somehow in ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Avallon. Comynet, Imprimeur-Librairie, 1835)
A small book of the complete fables in contemporary marbled boards. Its special feature is four pages of six square wood engravings each (frontispiece and facing 40, 90, 114). It would be a delight to track down the ...
La Fontaine's Fables
(London: J.M. Dent & Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton & Co., 1952)
Dent/Dutton take over the text and preface that Marsh had published through Heinemann in 1931. It is good to have his lively tellings in this compact format without illustration. I did not know that the Everyman Library ...
La Fontaine Fables: Trente-cinq lithographies originales de Hans Erni
(André GoninAndré Gronin: André Kundig & Auguste Griess for text; Hermann Kratz & Emile Matthieu for illustrations, 1955)
I had seen this portfolio only once before, in the home of my favorite private collector. I knew of Erni from his great illustrations for Ovid's Metamorphoses. I thought I would never have a chance at adding a copy to ...
