Fables: La Fontaine: Tome 2
Only the cover and later printing date seem to distinguish this printing from that of 1964. See my comments there.
Fables de La Fontaine, No. 4
Here is Volume Four, found four years after I found Volume Two, published in 1957. Apparently I have one more livre-disque to find to have the set of four complete. This Livre-Disque contains six fables, pictured on the ...
Fables et Épitres de la Fontaine
(Nelson Éditeurs, 1949)
Perhaps the main advantage of this little (just over 6 x 4) book is that it is a handy, flexible volume containing apparently all of La Fontaine's fables. The letters get only some 76 pages to the 380, plus introductory ...
La Fontaine et le Premier Recueil des Fables, Vol II
(Librairie A.-G. Nizet, 1966)
The first volume of this pair is listed under 1965, even though its cover shows 1966. This second volume continues to work its way through Books Three, Four, Five, and Six, treating each fable along the way. As I mentioned ...
Jean de la Fontaine: The Complete Fables
(The New English Library Limited, 1962)
Here is a surprising find from a five-minute stop in a beloved old store. I would have thought that I would know by now of a twentieth-century verse translation of the complete fables of La Fontaine. A quick check on the ...
Fables Choisies de La Fontaine, V. I
(Editions des "Moulins d'AuvergneSauzet, 1944)
It is strange how a cover affects one's perception of a book. I bought this beautifully covered pair of volumes thinking that the illustrations must be significant. When I came to examine the books, I found the illustrations ...
Fables de La Fontaine: Édition annotée a l'usage de la jeunesse
(Theodore Lefevre Éditeurs,Théodore Lefèvre, Éditeur, 1881)
Bodemann #339.1. Bodemann notes there that this volume goes back to an 1867 first Joaust edition. See my comments under 1901? on the later edition of the same book (Bodemann #339.2). Here I will highlight some of the ...
Fables Choisies de La Fontaine, V. II
See my comments on the first volume, both paper and hardbound, and on the paperbound second volume. This time through my favorite illustrations were Le Cerf se voyant dans l'Eau (20); La jeune Veuve (32); and Les Poissons ...
Fables of La Fontaine with Moving Pictures
(Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1890)
This fragile treasure is disintegrating as I write! It is a lovely find. It includes six operable pictures with a tab at the bottom to make the character(s) move. FS still operates perfectly and is the most complex of ...
Le Songe d'un Habitant du Mogol & autres fables de la Fontaine
(Réunion des Musées nationaux, Imprimerie nationale, 1989)
This is a delightful large-format book of some 192 pages featuring the fifty-nine miniatures painted by Imam Bakhsh at the court of Lahore from 1837 on. As far as I can understand, these miniatures are now preserved at ...
