Fables Choisies mises en Vers par M. de La Fontaine
(Fr.. Amb. Didot l'Ainé, 1787)
I am having difficulty locating this lovely book in Bodemann. The two parts are bound together here, and pagination starts over for the second part. Each fable has a fine small engraving about 2½ x 2. I consider this ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
This paperbound book is simpler and shorter than a similar volume of Florian's fables for which I have guessed a date of 1950. That volume had Editions Enfantines added to the company logo on the back cover, and this ...
Fables de La Fontaine, 6me Série
(Pellerin & Cie., 1920)
There are sixteen pages inside this lovely old pamphlet. The colored images are on the left-hand pages in the first half and on the right-hand pages in the latter half. A wolf-shepherd with a striped shirt sits on the ...
Crónica de Fabulandia: El Caballo y la Hormiga.
(Editorial Fher, 1973)
Apparently, the horse saves the grasshopper, who has been knocked out in a terrible storm. I do not think there is anything Aesopic here. An example of what the root fabu- has meant to people around the world.
I.A. Krylov: Basni (Selected Fables)
(Narodna Prosveta, 1951)
This book is worth the high price I paid for it. It works generally in four-page or six-page units. The first right-hand page has a title, small design, and visual artist's name. The verso of that page is a full-page ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
(Éditées specialement pour les Magasins du Bon Marché, 1912)
This book reduplicates three editions that I already have listed under 1897, 1901, and 1907. All three of those have a date on their title-page. This volume is without a date there, but there are two suggestions of a ...
A Book of Fables
(Thomas Nelson & Sons Ltd., 1935)
This book is identical with another in the collection except for a few features. Like that book, it uses the plates used in my apparent first edition of Jack Orr's Aesop's Fables, which I have listed under 1927? Please ...
Child's Book of Fables
(Leavitt & Allen, 1860)
Both the cover and the identical first illustration in this fragile little eight-page pamphlet have been colored, though with different color schemes. An older man holds a book and perhaps reads from it while two children ...
School Reading by Grades: Third Year
(American Book Company, 1897)
There are four fables in this reader. MSA (10) is well told and features a good black-and-white illustration of the donkey swinging crosswise from a pole. TMCM (42) is told in a version very close to Jacobs' and offers ...
Le Monde Magique des Contes et Légendes (Livre 2)
(Les Éditions Tormont Inc., 1989)
This very large-format pamphlet is referred to in Livre 1 of the same series (containing TMCM and FS) as Livre 2, but there is no indication here that this is Book Two or even that there is a series. PML Editions is added ...
