Excerpt from The Fables of Aesop: As First Printed by William Caxton in 1484, With Those of Avian, Alfonso and Poggio, Now Again Edited and Induced by Joseph Jacobs

On the typographical peculiarities of the original - how it is composed in the fourth fount used by Caxton, and so ou - we need not dilate here. Are not these things writ ten, once for all, in the Chronicles of Blades (w. Blades' Life and Work of Caxton, ii. 157 one of the few final books written by an Englishman? Caxton's 'esope' is distinguished in the history of English print ing by being the first book to possess initial letters. A facsimile of the first of these, appropriately enough the letter A, is given at the beginning of this Preface. In the original every fable is accompanied by a woodcut: we give a few of these, reduced in size: they claim no merit but that of the grotesque.

Product Description :

Excerpt from The Fables of Aesop: As First Printed by William Caxton in 1484, With Those of Avian, Alfonso and Poggio, Now Again Edited and Induced by Joseph Jacobs

He sat among the woods, he heard
The sylvan merriment; he saw
The pranks of butterfly and bird,
The humours of the ape, the daw.

And in the lion or the frog -
In all the life of moor and fen,
In ass and peacock, stork and log,
He read similitudes of men.

"Of these, from those," he cried, "we come,
Our hearts, our brains descend from these."
