Book cover Like Homer, or Virgil, Aesop's fables were a part of the literary grounding of English readers and writers in the Renaissance: they circulated in many forms and versions. In this new edition for Tudor & Stuart Translations, we present a selection of five translations of Aesopian fables, ranging in time from the earliest days of printing, with Caxton in 1485, through to the English Civil War, with Ogilby in 1651. For more, see our catalogue page for Arthur Golding’s A Moral Fabletalk and Other Renaissance Fable Translations, edited by Liza Blake and Kathryn Vomero Santos.
