24 of 24 people found the following review helpful By Willis G. Regier on March 2, 2006
B. E. Perry devoted his long career to the study of fables, culminating in his monumental AESOPICA. His edition of Babrius and Phaedrus was his last major work and he put in it every volt of his high-energy intelligence. His volume has a superb introduction that provides a history of the fable in the ancient world, a far longer and more detailed introduction than can be found in most Loeb editions. The translations are clear and Perry's annotations are invaluable. The fables come through very well, with deeply grounded scholarship but no drag of pedantry. Simply the best edition and translation in English.

The book arrived very quickly in excellent condition. I have begun to read the book and have found it to be exactly what I had been looking for regarding fables.

The book was received in a timely manner and was in the condition that the seller had printed. Would do business with them again. Very smoothe transaction.
