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, 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 1593 Zanneti example is no exception. This fine printing also includes a rare text by Agapetus, deacon of the church of St. Sophia at Constantinople – advice to Christian princes and expectation of their duties which was presented to Emperor Justinian in the year 527. This work is commonly published alongside Aesop.
