1727 1st ed Greek Literature Phaedrus Fables Aesop Latin Burman VELLUM FOLIO Aesop's Fables or the Aesopica is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and story-teller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BCE. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with Aesop's name have descended to modern times through a number of sources. Phaedrus (fl. first century AD), Roman fabulist, was a Latin author and versifier of Aesop's fables. His numerous editorial and critical works spread his fame as a scholar throughout Europe, and engaged him in many of the stormy disputes which were then so common among men of letters. Pieter Burman (1668 1741) was a Dutch classical scholar.
