  • Aesop's Fables 

    Rundell, J.B.; La Fontaine, Jean de; Croxall, Samuel; L'Estrange, Roger (Cassell, Petter, and Galpin. London and NY, 1869)
    This copy with a white cover joins two with green and blue covers, respectively. It has two remarkable features. First, it is inscribed in 1869. That fact makes it perhaps the clearest candidate for a first edition; I ...

  • Favourite Fables and Stories About Animals, containing: The Favourite Book of Fables and Favourite Stories about Animals 

    No Author (Thomas Nelson and Sons. London, 1894)
    Here is an extra copy of a book first acquired sixteen years earlier. The first of the two books combined here I have already had. It is a lovely little book of 117 fables with a mix of illustrators and illustration ...
  • Fables Nouvelles, Tome Premier 

    Jauffret, Louis-François (Chez Maradan. Paris, 1815)
    In 2006 in Münster I found Jauffret's "Fables Nouvelles: Two Volumes," which includes some 442 fables in fifteen books. I mentioned there an earlier edition of 1814 or 1815 that was published by Maradan and printed by ...

  • Aesop's Fables, Complete and Unabridged 

    Jones, V.S. Vernon (MacMillan. London, 2017)
    This book is a reissue of a book published in 2014 by Collector's Library. It includes 284 numbered fables and so is a "complete and unabridged" copy of what was first published by Heinemann and by Doubleday in 1912. The ...
  • The Milkmaid and Her Pail 

    Hoena, Blake (Cantata Learning. North Mankato, MN, 2018)
    Music by Joseph Faison IV. With a CD containing the story and song, just the song, and just the instrumental background. The lyrics and music are also printed at the end of the book. Readers are invited by the disc to ...
  • Fables de La Fontaine 

    LaFontaine (Chez Delarue, Libraire. Paris, 1876)
    To my best recollection, someone gave me this book. It seems to come from a series of La Fontaine's works. This sturdy little (about 4½" x 7") book contains two volumes including all twelve books of La Fontaine's fables. ...

    Hoena, Blake (Cantata Learning. North Mankato, MN, 2018)

  • The Lion and the Mouse 

    Hoena, Blake (Cantata Learning. North Mankato, MN, 2018)
    Music by Mark Oblinger. The mouse narrates this story in rhyming couplets. Two things are unusual in the story and its visual depiction. The lion laughs so hard that he lets the mouse go, and the mouse takes that as his ...
  • Alte Fabeln zur Lust und Lehr 

    Wolgast, Heinrich (Buchverlag der Jugendblätter. Munich, 1906)
    This red copy of a favorite little book is identical with our green copy with two differences. First, it lacks a title page. That title page would confirm the publication date of 1906. Secondly, the acknowledgement of ...
  • 30 Fables Choisies de Jean de la Fontaine 

    La Fontaine, Jean de; Game, Philippe; Michaud, Danielle (Editions Morena. Paris, 1995)
    Here is an extra copy of this book in excellent condition. This book is especially dear to me because it was found in the Souks or Flea Markets of Casablanca. Though we argued for some time, I could not get the seller ...
  • Travestien über Fuchs und Rabe 

    Grümmer, Gerhard (Verlag Michaela Naumann. Nidderau, 1993)
    Here is an extra copy in excellent condition of this book. This copy once belonged to Roland Steiner. Here are seventy-five German presentations of FC, starting from Martin Luther's. They are fun! They certainly go in ...
  • Le Lièvre et la Tortue: Fable de La Fontaine 

    La Fontaine, Jean de; Laramée, Ghislaine (Bias. 1978)
    The chief features of this twelve-page large-format (8" x 11½") pamphlet are the prose rendition of the fable through the book, climaxed by La Fontaine's poetic version on the last page, and Romain Simon's delightful art ...

  • Forty-Two Fables of La Fontaine 

    La Fontaine, Jean de; Marsh, Edward (William Heinemann, Ltd.. London, 1924)
    This British first edition apparently antedates the US first edition from Harper by one year. And this copy is signed and numbered #113 of 165 numbered copies. As I wrote there, the book has witty rhyming texts. The ...
  • Chr. F. Gellert's sämtliche Fabeln und Erzählungen in drei Büchern 

    Leutemann, H. (Hahn'sche Buchhandlung. Hannover und Leipzig, 1912)
    This book is almost identical with a copy I bought in the same shop seventeen years earlier. As I looked it over, I found three small discrepancies, and so I include this copy on its own. First, the typeface under the ...
  • Fables de La Fontaine 

    La Fontaine, Jean de (H. Fournier Ainé. Paris, 1838)
    When I noticed that this 1838 edition was up for under $80 for the two volumes, I thought I would take a chance. I got lucky! Getting it has given me a chance to compare -- again -- the 1838 Grandvilles that I have. I ...
