Does this book really belong in this collection? I am not sure. But I was so happy to find a book in Charlottesville. No doubt there is plenty in this book that comes from Aesop, even though authors are not mentioned here. Aesop is mentioned in #1099 on 130: He hasn’t even touched Aesop's fables. I wonder what that proverb means! Fables are also referred to in #1056 on 126: They told an ass a fable and he shook his ears. Once again, I do not see the meaning! My favorite as I glance through the book is #1066 on 127: He broke a leg, and he's asking other people if it hurts. Another favorite is #401 on 63: The man who had much and the one who had little lamented; but the one who had nothing began to sing.
