A Hundred Fables of LaFontaine
(Distributed by Crown PublishersGreenwich House: Crown Publishers, 1983)
Alphabetical list of fables at the front. Each of the hundred fables has a striking black-and-white illustration by Billinghurst. The translations seem short and to the point.
Fabels van La Fontaine
A small gift booklet. For their size both the full-page reproductions and the vignettes come out surprisingly well. Sixty pages, with sixteen fables.
Fables in Rhyme for Little Folks.
(P.F. Volland, 1918)
A wonderful little book! Eighteen fables, each done with four excellent, witty pictures. This printing comes off as very successful, especially in contrast with some other printings. Book detectives will want to compare ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Editions BiasÉditions Bias, 1955)
I wrote of another edition of this book that I knew I had seen it before. Now I find part of the reason. Here is the 1955 (original?) edition of a book published again by Bias with a different cover in 1972. That 1972 ...
Fables de La Fontaine
A beautiful little gift. The small, delightful engravings reproduce but do not repeat Girardet: the format is different, and a keen eye can spot plenty of differences. The book exemplifies the combined continuity and ...
Recueil de Fables Choisies Dans le Goût de M. De la Fontaine
(Chez PH.N. Lottin & J.H. Butard, 1749)
The title continues Sur de petits airs & Vaudevilles connus notés à la fin pour en faciliter le chant. Not in Bodemann. Six books of fables on 322 small (2½ x 5) pages. Notice that both the texts and the organization ...
Fontaine's Fables, With Which Are Included Aesop's Fables.
(Small Maynard & Company,, 1922)
This book has some fascinating features among its forty-three fables from LaFontaine (through 75) and its fifty-four from Aesop. There is never more than one fable to a page. The LaFontaine portion seems to me to represent ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
(Siegle Hill et cie,, 1910)
After the cover, this book is exactly the same as the edition I have from the American publisher George Jacobs (also found under 1910?), right down to the last page of advertisements for FitzGerald's other books. This ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Éditions Albin Michel, 1947)
This book represents a curious addition to the collection. I had the feeling when I saw it that I had seen it before. I checked my records before bidding on the book but probably missed the tilde in Rapeño and so believed ...
The Original Fables of La Fontaine
(London: J.M. Dent and Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton, 1913)
A novel approach in that the book presents only those fables of which LaFontaine was himself the originator. The translator insists in the introduction on the value of prose. On the frontispiece we read that the heart ...
