Le favole di La Fontaine
(Arnoldo MondadoriIl Melograno, 1971)
Realistic and playful drawings of animals in courtly human garb. I do not see any I would take now, but they are better-than-average. It may be difficult to get some away from the text, since they are so well arranged ...
Jean de La Fontaine: The Fables
(Jupiter Books, 1975)
Offhand, I do not think the abundant Doré illustrations quite match those in the Chartwell edition (1982), perhaps especially because of the paper used here. An excellent bilingual presentation, always with Doré's small ...
fables choisies pour les enfants
(L'école des loisirs, 1871)
A really classy book, almost worth what I paid for it. I am not sure that any of its pages is apt for a slide, especially since the very small text is always included. Both the original and the copy are very well done. ...
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. Nouvelle Édition, Enrichie des Notes de Coste, Dans laquelle on Aperçoit d'un Coup-d'Oeil la Moralité de la Fable
(Imprimerie de l'Institut LazarewIzdanīe Andrei͡a Glazunava s Bratʹi͡ami, 1840)
This is an otherwise straightforward presentation of La Fontaine's twelve books of fables with a T of C at the back following La Fontaine's epitaph with a design of its own. The two noteworthy features of the volume are ...
Fables de La Fontaine Précédées de la vie de l'auteur. Nouvelle édition, dans laquelle on aperçoit d'un coup d'oeil la moralité de la Fable
(Avallon. Comynet, Imprimeur-Librairie, 1834)
This book is in many respects similar to one I had found in 1993 at the Strand, dated 1835 from the same publisher with the same title. In fact, the title-page may be the same except for the year. That little book of the ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Selected Fables
(Dover Publications, 1948)
Here is a favorite paperback of mine with lively illustrations, probably not quite as good as those in the Aesop edition Calder did in 1931. The illustrations are well reproduced. I will include six copies of this book ...
Fables choisies de La Fontaine
Black-and-white illustrations and colored pictures are intermixed. The best among them are of the lap-donkey, FM, the crow with plumes, and MSA. AI at the beginning. A lovely treasure in the French tradition. See Fables ...
mes nouvelles fables de la Fontaine
(Librairie Fernand Nathan et Cie, 1974)
The pictures are cute. The La Fontaine text is the original verse. I see nothing for use. Of course, it is an example of the perduring tradition of LaFontaine. Fables presented here include TH, MM, The Little Fish and ...
One Hundred Fables by La Fontaine
(Ginn and Company, 1906)
A helpful little book inscribed in Cambridge. I think the book's first gift lies in its identification of one hundred of LaFontaine's 238 fables for special attention. The copious English notes at the rear help someone ...
