Abstract
I have a number of Chambry editions, but until now I had not found this simple book of translations. I am delighted to add another lovely Budé text. After 54 pages of introductory material paginated with Roman numerals, the book consists simply of 358 numbered translations, with a French AI at the back. Chambry explains on v-vi the numbering changes from his standard-setting two-volume work: The Horse and the Boar was a doublet in the earlier work (#144 and 329). That fable at #144 is dropped in this work, the new #144 is the old #145, and all succeeding fables are one number lower than their earlier number. Also The Oak and the Reed had appeared as #101. Now Chambry has chosen the variant The Reed and the Olive, and it takes its new alphabetical place at #143.
