“A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing or the other, and we then know how to meet him.”

― Aesop, Aesop’s Fables


Aesop’s fables have been printed for centuries and include some of the most famous fables and tales of all time. Originating sometime in the 6th– to 7th-century BC, these tales have appeared in popular culture for well over 2000 years in the form of books, plays, songs, and visual media.

 

Sixteenth-century examples of Aesop are increasingly rare, and this 1561 printing is no exception. The fables of this edition are preceded by the famous ‘Life of Aesop’ by Planudes. In addition to Aesop’s Fables, it includes several additional works including:

  • Galeomyomachia by Theodorus Prodromus
  • Batrachomyomachia, attributed to Homer
