Fables from La Fontaine, Including His Life of Aesop
This 1973 reprint is identical with the 1973 first printing in all ways I can discern, except that it adds a gold design of WC to the cover. The first printing seems to have put this design upside-down on the back cover! ...
La Fontaine et le Premier Recueil des Fables, Vol II
(Librairie A.-G. Nizet, 1966)
The first volume of this pair is listed under 1965, even though its cover shows 1966. This second volume continues to work its way through Books Three, Four, Five, and Six, treating each fable along the way. As I mentioned ...
La Fontaine et le Premier Recueil des Fables, Vol I
(Librairie A.-G. Nizet, 1965)
Wow! I just noticed that this pair of volumes is now selling on Amazon for $95. A bookstore in Berlin is selling a copy for $3777.67! My! It would be tempting to work with these two volumes the next time I teach a ...
La Fontaine Stories Translated into Armenian (translated title)
(Aprahamyan Basimevi, 1949)

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 ...

La Fontaine: Fables choisies
