Description


Excerpt from Aesop's Fables: With Upwards of One Hundred and Fifty Emblematical Devices

So much has been already said concerning Esop and his writings, both by ancient and modem au thors, that the subject seems to be quite exhausted. The different conjectures, Opinions, traditions. And forgeries, which from tune to time we have had given to us of him, would fill a large volume: but they are, for the most part, so inconsistent and ah surd, that it would be but a dull amusement for the reader to be led into such a maze of uncer tainty: since Herodotus, the most ancient Greek historian, did not flourish till near an hundred years after zesop.
