La Fontaine: Le Lion et le Rat, La Colombe et la Fourmi
This small (5 x 6½) book is most remarkable for Giannini's mix of broad backgrounds and very detailed foregrounds, especially in faces, in his colored artwork. The hunter on 19 is outfitted with crossbow, dagger, sword, ...

Fables de La Fontaine Précédées de la vie de l'auteur. Nouvelle édition, dans laquelle on aperçoit d'un coup d'oeil la moralité de la Fable
(Avallon. Comynet, Imprimeur-Librairie, 1834)
This book is in many respects similar to one I had found in 1993 at the Strand, dated 1835 from the same publisher with the same title. In fact, the title-page may be the same except for the year. That little book of the ...
One Hundred Fables by La Fontaine
(Ginn and Company, 1906)
A helpful little book inscribed in Cambridge. I think the book's first gift lies in its identification of one hundred of LaFontaine's 238 fables for special attention. The copious English notes at the rear help someone ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Fratelli Fabbri Editori, 1964)
See my version dated 1965 and otherwise almost identical. They share a 1962 copyright by O.D.E.J., Paris. As I write there, this is a large-format children's book, now the third distinct set of work I have by Cremonini ...
La Fontaine: The Hen who laid the Golden Eggs and the Sponge-carrier and the Salt-carrier
(Children's Books Ltd.Litor Publishers Ltd., 1985)
This little children's book of 7 x 7½ is colorful and attractive. The texts are arranged in sense lines. The versions of the two fables here are faithful to La Fontaine. Notice the looks on the two donkeys' faces ...
(Éditions de L'Abeille d'Or, 1900)
Here is a small (3¼ x 4¼) and very fragile paperbound booklet of 169 pages featuring a selection of La Fontaine's fables. There is a T of C at the back. Many of the pages are uncut. There seem to be no selections after ...
The Fables of Jean de La Fontaine
(William T. Amies, 1880)
Great cover and binding decoration! 240 fables, without book divisions. Not the original Thornbury edition of 1868, published by Cassell. The illustrations are good but not as good as in the Ten Kate version from Holland ...
Bajky LaFontaineovy S Obrazky Doreovymi
(Kral. VinohradyKrál. Vinohrady, 1928)
Seventy-two fables on 72 pages, with a T of C at the end. This paperbound volume has a nice oval portait of La Fontaine on its cover. It is in only fair condition, and its binding is deteriorating.
Fables of La Fontaine
(Edward MoxonTappan and Dennet, 1841)
A magnificent pair of volumes! The pagination is exactly the same as in the Derby and Jackson edition (1860) that describes itself as two volumes in one. There is some staining of the pages. The printing of the illustrations ...
