Fables de La Fontaine
(H. Fournier Ainé, 1838)
One of the finest works I have. The illustrations (120 in the two volumes) are exceptionally clear here. Some of the best are of the city and country rats (20), the cat-woman (82), the lion in love (127), and the fox ...
Fables of La Fontaine
(Derby & Jackson, 1860)
One of the loveliest books I have. The leather, the gilding, and especially the illustrations are first-class. AI on xli (facing a great engraving of the animals at LaFontaine's tomb). Lovely title pages. Unfortunately ...

Fables de La Fontaine, Tome Premier
(Armand Aubrée, Éditeur, 1839)
This is one of my favorite acquisitions for the collection. It seems to reproduce the 1842 edition (Bassy #42, p. 268) in many respects, except that it is published by Armand Aubrée, publisher of the 1839 edition. ...

La Fontaine's Fables Now First Translated from the French By Robert Thomson, Vols. III-IV
(Chenu, Libraire, 1806)
Compare this book with the latter two of the four volumes in my Chenu edition with multiple illustrations. The setup of the title-page has changed in several ways. There is of course no mention here of Elegant Engraved ...
La Fontaine: A Present for the Young From the French
(Weeks, Jordan and Company, 1839)
This is an unusual--and an unusually expensive--little volume. It has its title clearly engraved in gold on its green cloth cover. There are 108 pages of verse fables without illustrations. Now, here is a pleasant ...
