154 books of Aesop

The fables of Aesop have become one of the most enduring traditions of European culture, ever since they were first written down nearly two millennia ago. Aesop was reputedly a tongue-­tied slave who miraculously received the power of speech; from his legendary storytelling came the collections of prose and verse fables scattered throughout Greek and Roman literature. First published in English by Caxton in 1484, the fables and their morals continue to charm modern readers: who does not know the story of the tortoise and the hare, or the boy who cried wolf?

The anonymously authored Aesop Romance (usually dated to the 1st or 2nd century CE; see above) begins with a vivid description of Aesop's appearance, saying he was "of loathsome aspect...­potbellied, misshapen of head, snub-­nosed, swarthy, dwarfish, bandy-­legged, short-­armed, squint-­eyed, liver-­lipped—a portentous monstrosity,­" or as another translation has it, "a faulty creation of Prometheus when half-­asleep.­" The earliest text by a known author that refers to Aesop's appearance is Himerius in the 4th century, who says that Aesop "was laughed at and made fun of, not because of some of his tales but on account of his looks and the sound of his voice.­" The evidence from both of these sources is dubious, since Himerius lived some 800 years after Aesop.

This book 'Aesop's Fables' presents a vast collection of entertaining stories with thought-­provoking morals along with Rackham's beautifully imaginative and humourous illustrations. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. About the author: Aesop (c. 620-­560BC) is famous for his Fables which are still used as the basis of many children's plays and cartoons and to teach moral lessons today. He was born in Greece and little is known about his life except that he was a slave of Ladmon of Samos who received his freedom. Aesop probably did not personally commit his fables to the page but rather later eminent Greeks such as Socrates recorded them. About the Illustrator: Arthur Rackham . . .
