Fables de La Fontaine Illustrées
(Chez Delarue, Libraire, 1848)
"This book looked very familiar, but it did not seem to line up well with the one book I have of La Fontaine from Delarue. I noticed on the last page that it was printed by Mame in Tours. I checked, and Mame in Tours did ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part I
(Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, 1883)
A beautiful edition with a partially missing spine. I picked up this pair of volumes thinking that it was just another Cassell edition of the Thornbury translation. Then I noticed in Hobbs (100) that the first English ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part II
(Cassell Petter, and Galpin,, 1883)
See my comments on the first volume of this beautiful set. No title page (or indication on Part I's title page that this is a two-part set). Pagination continues from Part I.
Fables de La Fontaine
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1870)
A fine little book with 240 small, very good imitations of Grandville's illustrations. It takes close looking to see how the wood-engraver departs from Grandville. AI at the back. The first illustration is slightly ...
Chwedlau neu Ddammegion Aesop
(Argraffwyd a Chyhoeddwyd gan R. Hughes & Son,, 1870)
What a wonderful little treasure. The first book has a frontispiece of Aesop holding a scroll sitting in the countryside surrounded by animals. 140 fables, most with rectangular little illustrations reminiscent of Croxall. ...
(Librairie P. Ducrocq, 1885)
A surprise sitting on the kids' shelf. Actually fifty-one fables from seventeen fabulists, most brief and illustrated with nice vignettes. The best art is of the ass and the thieves (13), GGE (28), the travellers and the ...
Fables de La Fontaine
My best Doré. A huge and heavy book. A wonderful showpiece for the eighty-four full-page wood engravings; the many head and tail pieces come out unusually distinctly here too. The spine has been nicely reconstructed. ...
Choix de Fables de La Fontaine, Tome Premier
(Imprimerie de Tsoukidji-Tokio, 1894)
Here is the gem of the collection! What a marvelous pair of volumes! Each of the fourteen fables has a two-page illustration printed on only one side of the paper. The best here include: The Swallow and the Small Birds, ...
Choix de Fables de La Fontaine, Tome Second
Here is the gem of the collection! What a marvelous pair of volumes! Each of the fourteen fables has a two-page illustration printed on only one side of the paper. The best here include: The Cock and the Fox, The Monkey ...
Oeuvres Complete de La Fontaine
(Garnier Frères, 1877)
Here is a serious tome containing all of La Fontaine's works. The work seems closest to Bodemann #135.14, of which I have the first two volumes. Those are the two volumes in that set which contain fables. This edition ...
