Book description:

Publisher: Edition of 64 Æsopic, and 18 fables of Avianus in Latin and Old French. The Æsopic fables are, with a few exceptions, derived from the paraphrase of Romulus in distichs known as Esopus moralisatus (Anonymus Neveleti) by some authorities ascribed to Walter of England.--The text is based in the main upon three closely related illustrated mss. of the 14th century (Brussels, Bibl. roy. lll93; Brit. mus. Add. 33781; Paris, Bibl. nat. fonds franç. 1594). The title Ysopet-Avionnet was originally given to the fables of Avianus alone (cf. A. C. M. Robert, Fables inédites ... vol. I, 1825); in this edition it denotes the 2 parts: Isopet or Aesop, and Avionnet or AvianusIn the plates we have reproduced from the rotary prints (hence white on black), and on a somewhat reduced scale, the complete series of illustrations which appear in P the Paris ms. together with a few characteristic selections from the series in B and L the Brussels and London mss. cf. IntrodWith: The influence of Christia.
