dc.description.abstractAnd an accurate edition of the original on the opposite page, to which is added a parsing index for the use of learners. Whew! Those eighteenth-century titles! The parsing index is a special feature of this book. It runs for some sixty-four pages. It seems to be a rather complete dictionary of words used in Phaedrus' fables. The Gudius appendix, as the opening T of C shows, contains five fables: The Sick Kite, The Hares Weary of Life, Jupiter and the Fox, The Lion and Mouse, and The Man and the Trees. The frontispiece by S. Wale and C. Grignion shows Phaedrus composing in the foreground underneath a statue, perhaps of Aesop. Birds and animals move about in the background. As the title indicates, this little book is bilingual on facing pages, Latin on the left and English rhyming couplets on the right. The frontispiece page has been repaired. There seems to have been a second title-page, perhaps identical with the first, just before the parsing index; its imprint remains on the facing page. Not in Bodemann.en_US
