Abstract
My biggest question about this little book is How does it relate to Nall's edition in the same series? This book was first published in 1884, while Nall's was first published in 1895. If they are for different levels of students, I am surprised that they are in the same series of Elementary Classics. Here is Carnes' description: A short introduction outlining all that is known of Phaedrus’ life is followed by a selection of 29 fables (pp. 1-20) for school use, from the Müller edition (1877, q.v.), with fairly extensive annotations of a grammatical and stylistic nature, outfitted with exercises from re-translation into Latin. The notes often contain references to other versions of the fables, together with the occasional critical commentary, and complete Latin-English glossaries, and an English-Latin vocabulary with exercises. Carnes mentions a second edition of 1896, but there is no indication of that here. This book seems to indicate that this printing at least is a reprinting of the 1884 edition.
