Fables de La Fontaine
(Librairie Hachette, 1921)
The last page signals that this is the 1931 printing of Lorioux' work, which originally appeared in 1921. See my comments on the original edition, also by Hachette, under 1921? This edition changes the cover to offer a ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(The Commodore Press Ltd, 1946)
This is an unusual LaFontaine for me in that it was done in French language on English soil. The year of publication offers some background for this anomaly. Saurat offers a good little introduction replete with well ...
La Fontaine: Oeuvres Completes
(Editions du SeuilÉditions du Seuil, 1965)
A very nice small-print one volume work. The notes on the fables indicate sources and help with some archaic expressions. A careful source to work from.
La Fontaine: Le laboureur et ses enfants, Le pot de terre et le pot de fer
(Editions Lito-Paris, 1981)
Here is one of a series of some eighteen pamphlets. I am surprised at the title Fabliaux since the titles listed on the last page are all fables. At any rate, my work as a collector is cut out for me! This first find ...
The Fables of Aesop and The Original Fables of La Fontaine
(London: J.M. Dent and Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton, 1939)
This volume lets us see publishers at work. I have--under 1915?--this publisher's Aesop's Fables, which is included here almost without change. I have five different copies of The Original Fables of La Fontaine, which ...
The Original Fables of La Fontaine
(London: J.M. Dent and Sons/NY: E.P. Dutton, 1913)
Again, I am surprised. I thought I had picked up a potentially better copy of a book I already have. Well, it is true that the interior of this book is exactly like that which I have listed under 1913?/1913? from these ...
La Fontaine: Fables
(Le Livre de Poche: Librairie Générale Française, 1972)
Here is the most basic of straight presentations of La Fontaine in a paperback edition. Clarac adds a sixteen-page preface before and a set of materials after the full collection of the fables. These materials include a ...
La Fontaine Vingt Fables
(André Gonin, 1950)
Bodemann 467.1. Bassy #56. Mentioned (30) by Hobbs. One of the stars of this collection! For each fable, there is a large lithograph on the third (or right-inside) page of a four-page folio made by folding a large sheet ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Editions Novos S.A.Éditions Novos, 1945)
This is a large softbound volume, 9½ x 10½, with a title-page, 20 pages of fables, and a T of C at the back. Nineteen fables are presented. The illustrations, some in black-and-white and some in color, are simple and ...
(Presses Pocket, 1989)
An excellent pocket edition of the complete fables, not including the posthumous fables or the stories usually attached to the fable collection. The main source is given under the title of each fable. There is a good ...
