    • Babrii Fabulae Aesopeae 

      Babrius; Schneidewin, Friedrich Wilhelm (B.G. Teubner. LeipzigLipsiae, 1880)
      This Teubner text looks quite straightforward to me, with its total of 146 fables, of which the last nine are fragments. There is an Index Fabularum Lachmannianus on 64-66. What we might expect in an apparatus criticus ...

      Babrius; Schneidewin, Friedrich Wilhelm (B.G. Teubner. LeipzigLipsiae, 1901)
      This paperbound little volume reproduces what I already have listed for Schneidewin's Babrius under 1880. Other than the change of date and the inclusion of advertising at the end of this paperbound volume, I can find no ...

      Accedunt fabularum dactylicarum et iambicarum reliquiae. Ignatii et aliorum tetrasticha iambica recensita a Carolo Friderico Mueller. I am surprised that I had not found this book earlier. It is a Teubner text in the ...

      Babrius; Boissonade, Jean François; Villemain (Firmin Didot Fratres. Parisiis, 1844)
      A treasure, with its own history. The book once belonged to St. Andrew on the Hudson and Loyola Seminary at Shrub Oak! And no one ever took it out! Beautiful facing texts in Greek and Latin with notes. A quick glance ...

    • Babrius et ses poemes 

      Babrius; Herrmann, Léon (Latomus. BrusselsBruxelles, 1973)
      A real find! Its pages were still uncut. Careful fundamental work on the text of all of Babrius. 200 fables are presented in alphabetical order with an apparatus criticus and French translation (132). An index of fables ...
    • Babrius: Fables 

      Babrius (Elibron Classics Adamant Media Corporation,Hachette/Elibron Classics: Adamant Media. Paris/(Boston)[Boston, MA], 1847)
      Here is a case where I ordered the same book twice because I had not catalogued it promptly. The error allows me to keep a work copy of this handy paperback in Berkeley. It is handy because it gives two Greek versions ...

      Babrius; Desrousseaux, A. M (Librairie Hachette. Paris, 1902)

    • The Fables of Babrius 

      Babrius; Davies, James; Lewis, George Cornewall (Lockwood and Co.. London, 1860)

      Aesop; Babrius; Bádenas de la Peña, Pedro,; Facal, Javier L; García Gual, Carlos (Editorial Gredos. Madrid, 1978)
      My first Spanish find, on my first day in Madrid. My guess is that the Spanish translations are accurate and careful. Sixteen illustrations, most from the Zaragossa Ysopet; they seem to be identical with the Ulm woodcuts. ...

    • Les Fables Esopiques de Babrios 

      Aesop; Babrius; Lévêque, Eugène (Belin Frères. Paris, 1890)
      A beautiful book that I look forward to using extensively as we do Babrius this semester. The spine is leather, the endpapers are marbled, and the page-tops are gilt. One of the two biggest assets to me will probably ...
