Abstract
Finding this book represents a wonderful piece of luck! I had sought it for some time and had it on my want list. When I came to Leeds for the medieval institute, I thought of trying to find the university press, but the people I asked did not know what I was talking about. When I came to the book exhibit, I was surprised to find that the School of English had a booth. I asked about this book, and they pulled out a copy from under the table and were delighted that someone even knew about it! If truth be told Max Plessow's presentation in Palaestra LII (1906) is easier to read, particularly because the pages reproduced here are only about 2.5 x 5 inches. The combination of early printing and Bullokar's novel alphabet makes reading very difficult. Bullokar's fables include groups of 131, 8 (from divers authors), 95 (from Abstemius), 33 (from Valla), 99 (from Rimicius), and 11 (from Poggio) for a total of 377. There is a T of C just after 319.
