Les Fables de la Fontaine
(rue des enfants, 2015)
Here is a later and smaller edition of the 2013 "Mes plus belles Fables de La Fontaine" by the same publisher and above all by the same artist. Here one finds 15 of the 25 fables presented there. I continue to enjoy ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1931)
This is our fifth Nézière version of La Fontaine and one of the most interesting. Here is the history as I believe we can reconstruct it. Mame published a fine Nézière edition in 1926. It was slightly larger than this ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine 10 LP Box Set Decca Rare with Book
This is a combination of ten 33 rpm records with a booklet 12" x 12" explaining the records. The fable illustrations in this booklet all come from Oudry. Here is, I believe, a rare find in good condition. The only other ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Librairie Ancienne et Moderne, 1827)
This thick little volume (4" x 2½" x 1½" thick) has to be one of the most compact volumes in the collection. To my surprise, it is really an "Oeuvres de La Fontaine," and I wonder if a title-page to that effect might have ...

La Fontaine en Estampes, ou Nouvelle Editions des Fables, Plus Complète Que Les Précédentes
(Nepveu, Libraire, 1821)
This lovely book is in wretched condition but is oh so beautiful. Bodemann has it thirteenth in line in its family, but also notes that the etchings follow Oudry into the details. These 110 illustrations are a half-page ...
Le Renard et la Cigogne
(Imp. M. Moreau, Paris, 1900)
This little (3⅞" x 5") booklet presents a challenge, because it is both advertising for "Au Bon Marché" in Paris and a booklet in its own right. Vimar goes through the fable in lovely duochrome illustrations. Among the ...
La Gallina de los Huevos de Oro
(Ediciones Libertador, R.P. Centro Editor de Cultura, 2011)
Here is a lively eight-page presentation of GGE. The central human being here is a poor old man who has only this hen. This hen changes, for no known reason, one day and starts producing golden eggs. The owner adds to ...
Mes plus belles Fables de la Fontaine
(rue des enfants: CTP Interparents, 2013)
I am delighted to include this collection of Tessier's highly imaginative presentations of twenty-five La Fontaine fables. Each fable gets two pages, with text on the left-hand page and a clever illustration on the ...
