About the Author
Aesop (ca. 620-564 BC), known for the genre of fables ascribed to him, was by tradition born a slave and was a contemporary of Croesus and Solon in the mid-sixth century BC in ancient Greece. The earliest Greek sources (including Aristotle) indicate that Aesop was born in Thrace at a site on the Black Sea coast which would later become the city Mesambria; a number of later writers from Roman imperial period (including Phaedrus, who adapted the fables into Latin), say that he was born in Phrygia. By the 10th century A.D., according to the Suda, Samos and Sardis also claimed to be his birthplace. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Top customer reviews
THIS version has the full version of each fable, along with a moral for each. But the illustrations are black and white, not color. Would have been nice if they had indicated they were just B&W reprinted illustrations.
