A collection of fables credited to Aesop, an ancient Greek slave and storyteller who lived between 620 and 564 BCE. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with his name have descended to the modern era via a number of sources and continue to be reinterpreted through a variety of different media to this day.
This edition contains 310 fables and is derived from Rev. George Flyer Townsend’s literal translation from the Greek published in 1890. Included are 125 illustrations by Harrison Weir and Ernest Griset from editions published in 1874 and 1890. This edition also includes the Preface and Life of Aesop.
