Aesop's Fables

Aesop's Fables, or the Aesopica, is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BCE. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with his name have descended to modern times through a number of sources and continue to be reinterpreted in different verbal registers and in popular as well as artistic media.

In this edition, Grosset and Dunlap published dozens of stories accompanied by more than one hundred illustrations by John Tenniel.

Minor staining, this book has held up well and will make a great addition to any collection.

This book measures 7 5/8 x 5 1/4"
