Mille Fabulae et Una: 1001 Aesop's Fables in Latin
My hat is off to Laura for producing this lovely book. There is one -- one! -- page that stands between the reader and the beginning of enjoying the 1001 Latin fables. This page gives the reader what she or he needs to know about finding more information about fable, for example, or about where these fables come from. This single page also alerts the reader to the fact that the book is available free in pdf form on the web. What a generous gift! The fables are grouped by characters. Readers may want to keep a finger at 435, where the character groups are identified. I am delighted to see that Fr. Desbillons is the source of some 120 of the fables here. Laura is good enough to urge readers enjoying those to try the originals available through Google books. I am eager to try sprinkling in some of these fables when I teach Latin this summer! By the way, 417 presents one good way to get into the genre of fables: some characteristics to watch for, not any one of which completely delimits the genre. And there is a T of C on 437, the last page of the book. Congratulations, Laura!
