Fables de La Fontaine, No. 3
At last I have found Number 3 in a series of four combinations of book and record. There is a slight anomaly, since the only date I can find here is 1961 on the back cover of the booklet, and my copy of Number 3 is dated ...
Les plus belles fables de La Fontaine

Fables des animaux: d'Esope à La Fontaine
(Editions Lito, 1962?)
Copyright Editions AMZ Milan. The page before the title-page reads Le Grand Livre des Fables. Is that a series to which this book might belong? This is my fifth book using Bodini's illustrations. It is the largest and ...

Fablargo: Fables de La Fontaine en argot suivi d'un glossaire de la langue verte
(Editions GabriAndre, 1999)
Bilingual on facing pages, with La Fontaine's text on the left and something very hard for me to understand on the right. Is this the everyday talk of Parisiens today? I can say that it is in rhyming verse. Twenty-one ...
