Abstract
This beautiful Latin edition of Phaedrus is Carnes 339. Here is Carnes' helpful description: This is the celebrated ‘Biponti’ society edition of Phaedrus, based upon the edition of Johann Albert Fabricius (1621-1736) as edited by Johann August Ernesti (1707-1781), ultimately based upon the Pieter Burman (1668-1741) recension, with notes by Gude and with fables added from the Romulus, the Niccolò Perotti (1430-1480) appendix and others, as well as the Avianus and ‘Anonymous’ (i.e., ‘Anonymous Neveleti’) fables mentioned. Also contains the ‘Vita Phaedri a Jo. Scheffero composita’ (pp. iii-xii), by Johannes Scheffer (1621-1679), and the ‘Notitia literaria de Phaedro ex Jo. Alb. Fabricii Bibliotheca Latina’ by the editor Ernesti (pp. xiii-lii), and De Anonymus vetere fabularum auctore..., latin. ed Ernesti’ also by the editor. Biponti (Zweibrücken) is a town near Sarbrücken. There is one strange illustration, a frontispiece combining several animals and a human face.
