Les Fables de La Fontaine
(Éditées specialement pour les Magasins du bon Marché, 1901)
This book reduplicates editions I already have listed under 1897 and 1907. It was already then a derivative but lovely book. Its eighty-one gravures from the eighteenth century La Fontaine en Estampes seem to be mostly ...
La Fontaine et les Artistes
(La Renaissance du Livre, 2002)
Here is a new star of this collection. The book has three sections. First there is a survey of illustrators of La Fontaine's fables. The center of the book is an iconographic promenade through eighty fables illustrated ...
Love & Folly: Selected Fables and Tales of La Fontaine

This book uses Ponsot's translations done originally for Selected Fables and Tales of La Fontaine by the New American Library in 1966. It adds several good features to those good translations. There is first of all a ...
La Fontaine's Fables in Modern Clothes.

This book fills the need for simple English prose versions of LaFontaine for children. About one-half of LaFontaine's fables are represented, with simple illustrations about every ten pages. The beginning Brief Outline ...
A Hundred Fables from La Fontaine
(Anchor Books ; Doubleday & Company Inc.,, 1961)
Good short introduction. La Fontaine's lighthearted manner is, in a way, a veil to his scope and depth. This poet saw and loved lasting essentials, whether in a bowed woodman or in a rabbit or in death. His intelligence ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part I
(Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, 1883)
A beautiful edition with a partially missing spine. I picked up this pair of volumes thinking that it was just another Cassell edition of the Thornbury translation. Then I noticed in Hobbs (100) that the first English ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part II
(Cassell Petter, and Galpin,, 1883)
See my comments on the first volume of this beautiful set. No title page (or indication on Part I's title page that this is a two-part set). Pagination continues from Part I.
Fables de La Fontaine
(J. Langlumé et Peltier, 1830)
This may be my smallest complete La Fontaine edition. It measures about 2½ x 4. It includes some twenty fascinating small illustrations, paired up two to a page. The upper frontispiece presents La Fontaine in the ...
Der Esel und der Hund
(Kaufhof AktiengesellschaftSchmusi, 1989)
This is a stiff-paged book about 9¼ x 6 presenting five scenes, each on a two-page spread. The good German prose rendering of La Fontaine, featuring the brothers Hans and Peter, climaxes in the fine moral Jeder ist, was ...
Jean de la Fontaine:Fables ChoisiesII
(Société les belles lettres, 1934)
I had not been aware that Budé texts include French classics, too. A lovely softbound volume with uncut pages. There are notes at the back, especially on sources and variants. It is not yet clear to me how these fables ...
