dc.description.abstractThis is a strange little (3½ x 5½) volume to come from England. It follows the structure of many of the earliest little fable editions, beginning with a six-page life of Aesop excerpted or digested from that of Planudes, with a curious last page number of 67. Next comes an eight-page AI of fables offered in the volume, followed by a list of Interpretes. These include Adrianus Barlandus, Angelus Politianus, Anianus, Aulus Gellius, Erasmus Roterodamus, Gulielmus Gaudanus, Gulielmus Harmanus, Joannes Antonius Campanus, Laurentius Abstemius, Laurentius Valla, Nicolaus Gerbelius Phorcensis, Petrus Crinitus, Plinius secundus Novocomensis, and Rimicius. A section given to each of these seems to follow, though I cannot find the section given to Angelus Politianus. Poggio (not mentioned in the list of Interpretes) is the last of the authors, finishing on 176. The book is very frail, and both covers have long since separated from the book. A worm did some powerful eating between about 70 and 120.en_US
