Die Fabeln des Jean de LaFontaine

A magnificently preserved book. Eighty-two fables done in nicely rhyming German, with about thirty small reproductions of Oudry interspersed. T of C at rear.
Fables frae the French in Braid Scots
(Andrew Baxendine, 1912)
Who would ever have known that this book existed? T of C at the beginning identifies the French source for each of the 108 fables. The Scots vocabulary makes reading here tough. There are nice advertisements inside the ...
Fables de La Fontaine: Première Partie
(Librairie Illustrée. Paris: Jules Tallandier, 1906)

(Éditions du Panthéon, 1961)

A beautiful little volume in better condition than my two later copies of the same book. 105 small but excellent engravings besides the frontispiece. Among the best are the illustrations of Death and the woodman (57), ...
Fables de J. La Fontaine
(F. Didot frèresParis: Librairie de Firmin Didot Fréres, Fils et Cie, 1859)
Perhaps the loveliest non-illustrated LaFontaine in this collection. The careful owners in this last, unexpected Albuquerque stop did not know that they had this book. Very good condition. Calf binding with marbled ...
