Reader's note

A bright 1964 edition of Aesop: Five Centuries of Illustrated Fables in a lovely pictorial dust-jacket. Almost from the time of Gutenberg invented movable type, the fables of Aesop have been perennially popular subject for writers and illustrators - so much so that the many and varied versions of them constitute no less than a history of the printed illustrated book. Both the tales themselves and their illustrations have appeared in greatly varying garb, now simple, now highly elegant, sometimes terse, sometimes in elaborate detail. Here is a survey of the Aesop tradition: forty of these sardonic anecdotes, in translations by authors ranging from William Caxton to Marianne Moore, and with illustrations by artists such as Wenceslaus Hollar.
