La Fontaine Stories Translated into Armenian (translated title)
(Aprahamyan Basimevi, 1949)
This pamphlet contains perhaps eight small illustrations. Let me say something about them. The frontispiece is a standard bust of La Fontaine. On 25, are those figures Baucis and Philemon? Might the illustration on 35 ...
A Hundred Fables of LaFontaine
(John Lane The Bodley Head, 1900)
After spending $120 for a third printing and then $70 for a second, I have worked my way back to a first printing for much less money. When I earlier reviewed the 1920? printing, I thought that the best of the illustrations ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Ernest FlammarionFlammarion-Jeunesse, 1961)
This book is memorable for me first of all because there was a mix-up over shipment of it. I received another, rather commonplace La Fontaine edition, and Ms. Kerby and I feared that this book might have been lost or ...
French Fables in Rhyme, Translated from La Fontaine
(Stead's Publishing House, 1919)
At least some of the texts are taken, without acknowledgement, from Elizur Wright's edition. That is a good choice for this presentation of La Fontaine. Artist le Fanu offers a valuable contribution here with his sketches, ...
La Fontaine Fabeln
(Fabula Verlag, 1980)
This book looks like the original of the book I had already catalogued from Meisinger Verlag in Munich in 1987. Notice that the cover here has simply La Fontaine/Fabeln/Bilder von Eva Hülsmann. The cover there has Der ...
Imagerie Artistique: 20 Fables de La Fontaine
(Maison Quantin, 1889)
This is the second of three copies I have found of this book, a first volume answering two copies I had earlier found of the second volume. The cover has a teacher pointing to one of eleven miniatures of this book's twenty ...
Forty-Two Fables of La Fontaine
(William Heinemann, Ltd., 1924)
This British first edition apparently antedates the US first edition from Harper by one year. And this copy is signed and numbered #113 of 165 numbered copies. As I wrote there, the book has witty rhyming texts. The ...
Lafontaine: Dialechtoi Mythoi
(I.K. Papadopoulos and Son, 1975)
LaFontaine in Greek! Forty fables, with sixteen simple and poorly reproduced color illustrations and a few black-and-whites. Meant for children of age seven through eleven.
Fables de La Fontaine.
(J. De Gigord, 1874)
Any book in its thirty-fifth edition has to be a winner! Good short notes in French with the texts. Many fables of Florian, and a few each from seven other fabulists. Some ink spots.
A Hundred Fables of La Fontaine
(Hampstead Editions, 1988)
Almost identical with the Greenwich House (Crown) edition of the same title in 1983. Some of the illustrations are superior here. Some of the differences from that edition are these: the frontispiece of a lion has moved ...
