Written down two thousand years ago in ancient Latin and Greek, the fables and morals of Aesop have been passed down through generations and were first published in English in 1484. This collectible edition, packaged in a beautiful, vibrant clothbound hardcover, includes 284 fables with 80 color and black-and-white illustrations by Milo Winter.
Not much is known about the life of Aesop. He was a slave who lived in Greece around 620-563 BC, and hundreds of fables are attributed to him. He was believed to be tongue-tied, but miraculously received the power of speech and became a legendary storyteller.
