Fables de La Fontaine
(Éditions Bias, 1963)
Here is an earlier printing of a book I have already from its 1981 printing. Now it is printed in France; then, five years later, it will be printed in Italy. The only changes in the book occur in the small print on the ...
La Fontaine Fables
I have found two other versions of this book, listed under 1953/66 and 1953/70. I keep trying to find a first edition! This may be the cleanest copy of the three, marred only by a bit of scotch-tape at the base of the ...
The Book of Fables Containing Aesop's Fables
(F.M. Lupton Publishing Company, 1905)
I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to ...
Oeuvres Complete de La Fontaine Vol 1
(Garnier Frères, 1872)
A beautifully bound volume, containing the first six books of fables. The entire set includes seven volumes. Four illustrations here, unattributed: LaFontaine, 2W, MSA, and TB. There is a massive introductory work on ...
Fifty Fables from La Fontaine
(Oxford University Press, 1928)
The rhymes are fun for the few I have checked so far. A pleasant little book. Use the beginning T of C: the fables are not in LaFontaine's order.
The Complete Fables of Jean de la Fontaine.
(Northwestern University Press, 1988)
This book represents the first proofs in my collection. Comparison with the final product reveals small layout changes. The pages of the preface are mixed up. The final edition ends up some twenty-two pages longer than ...
Jean de La Fontaine: Die Fabeln
(Emil Vollmer Verlag, 1975)
A beautiful book very similar in format to the Jupiter edition of 1975. Like it, this edition is bilingual and uses background color to set off the original text and Doré's small illustrations. This book is more complete ...
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.
Fables de La Fontaine: Fables adaptées pour les petits à partir de 3 ans avec images adhésives
(PML Éditions: Éditions d'Olympe, 1998)
Originally done, apparently in Italian, by Gruppo EdiCART in Legnano in 1997. There are four verse stories here (though not La Fontaine's own text), for the first of which, FC, there are two pages of text and two almost ...
Le Loup et le Chien
(Éditions Ronde du Tournesol, 1991)
Large (12.25 x 11) pamphlet of six pages, die cut to fit the outlines of the wolf and dog on the cover. A simple prose version with images heavy on pastel colors, birds, and mushrooms. While the dog explained that he ...
