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 ...
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, ...
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 ...

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 ...
Die Fabeln des Jean de LaFontaine

Chwedlau neu Ddammegion Aesop

(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 ...
