Jean de la Fontaine: Fables
(Bookking International, 1993)
Here is an extra copy of this book. This is one of the few editions of La Fontaine's fables which I have that does not add some notes. There is a two-page life at the beginning and an AI at the back. The French will, ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1926)
An instant favorite! I had never known of this book, which is not in Bassy. It is in good condition except for a weakening spine and some damage to the cover. Sixty fables with a T of C at the end. Sixteen full-page ...
Die Fabeln des Jean de LaFontaine
(Georg MuellerGeorg Müller, 1911)
A magnificently preserved book. Eighty-two fables done in nicely rhyming German, with about thirty small reproductions of Oudry interspersed. T of C at rear.
Fables Mises en Vers, Tome II
(Librairie Armand Colin, 1960)
Persistence paid off in this case. I had found the first volume of this two-volume set of paperbacks four years ago. Now a second volume has turned up. As I wrote then, Bibliothèque de Cluny is a series of some fifty ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Neugebauer Press, 1979)
Beautiful, lavish, tasteful illustrations of the seventeen fables presented in this oversize book. Among the best: LM, AD, and the finis picture. I found this at Schroeder's on my second or third try there. We did some ...
Fables de La Fontaine
(Editions G.P., 1981)
I like this book. Its paintings for kids have an exuberant (sometimes even overexuberant) quality; they are alive with color and action. Cute mice act out comments, e.g., holding their ears near the frog about to explode. ...
The Turtle and the Two Ducks: Animal Fables Retold from La Fontaine.
(Thomas Y. Crowell, 1981)
Eleven witty prose fables freely retold to capture the irreverent fun of the original verses. The broken turtle after the fall is a visual delight. There are frequent little animal spectators. I enjoy this art. The ...
LaFontaine: Selected Fables
(Penguin Books, 1979)
Surprising. This book is identical--down to the typeface, I think--with the Viking editions (1979), minus the illustrations. The surprise is that I see no acknowledgement here of the Viking edition, perhaps because Penguin ...
Fables de La Fontaine: Cent Fables Choisies
(Librairie Renouard, 1904)
One of the most beautiful books in the collection, and in very good condition. Apparently unknown to standard bibliographers like Quinnam, Hobbs, and Bassy, it is in my favorite private collection. It is well described ...
Jean de la Fontaine: Fables, Tome Sec
(Henri Cyral, 1930)
This book is a wonderful prize! One of my very favorites. The shop owner spoke disparagingly of the book because it had lost its first volume. I found this book in a few minutes I stole from lunch before further touring ...
