Fables de La Fontaine
Here is an original of the book I first came to know in its reproduction of 1983. Good monochrome and eight excellent full-page polychrome illustrations. The best of the monochrome illustrations are The Coach and the Fly ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Fables Choisies I
(Société les belles lettres, 1934)
Earlier I had been given this 1948 reprint of this Budé text in two volumes. I am delighted now to find the original. The special feature of this pair of volumes is that, as the cover of this first volume shows, the pair ...
La Fontaine: Fables Choisies I: L 1-6
(Classiques Larousse, 1934)
A typical pamphlet for French secondary students. No illustrations. It does not contain all the fables of the first six books. Apparently, Larousse started with these pamphlets and then grew into larger paperbacks with ...
Fabels van La Fontaine
(Prisma paperback: Spectrum, 1940)
Poorer reproductions of Grandville's engravings than in the 1976 third printing. Also a different cover. The last of these Dutch fables has a different translator, M. Nijhoff.
Jean de La Fontaine: Selected Fables
(Oxford University Press, 1995)
I was happy to find this text available when I needed a La Fontaine text for an undergraduate course in fable literature. It had advantages that I liked: an broad selection of fables with explanatory notes in an inexpensive ...

The Fables of La Fontaine
(H.M. Caldwell Co., 1881)
This handy-sized edition of the Wright translation of LaFontaine with frontispiece of La Fontaine and three illustrations has a curious place in the history of Wright editions. Apparently it reproduces the preface and ...
Fables de La Fontaine I
This book makes a selection of fables from Lorioux' larger-format and larger-volume book of the same title by the same publisher in 1949. Here he handles six fables, with a single dramatic colored image for each. In three ...
Selected Fables/Fables Choisies: Jean de La Fontaine
(Dover Publications, 1997)
This is as simple and straightforward as an inexpensive dual-language text can be. The T of C lists La Fontaine's sources for the seventy-five fables that are presented, and a helpful key follows. The introduction might ...
Fifty Fables of La Fontaine
(University of Illinois Press, 1988)
This is a lovely bilingual edition with excellent rhymed translations and notes. The black-and-white art is not outstanding; the best illustrations are those of the lion and gnat (between 23 and 24) and of an old cat and ...
