Aesop's Fables free pdf Excerpt from AEsop's Fables: Embellished With One Hundred and Eleven Emblematical Devices So much has been already said concerning AEsop and his writing, both by ancient and modern authors, that the subject seems to be quite exhausted. The different conjectures, opinions, traditions, and forgeries, which from time to time we have had given to us of him, would fill a large volume: but they are, for the most part, so inconsistent and absurd, that it would be but a dull amusement for the reader to be led into such a maze of uncertainty: since Herodotus, the most ancient Greek historian, did not flourish till near an hundred years after AEsop. As for his Life, with which we are entertained in so complete a manner, before most of the editions of his Fables, it was invented by one Maximus Planudes, a Greek Monk- and, if we may judge of him from that composition, just as judicious and learned a person, as the rest of his fraternity are at this day observed to be. Sure there never were so many blunders and childish dreams mixed up together, as are to be met with in the short compass of that piece. For a Monk, he might be very good and wise, but in point of history and chronology, he shows himself to be very ignorant. He brings AEsop to Babylon, in the reign of king Lycerus, a king of his own making- for his name is not to be found in any catalogue, from Nabonassar to Alexander the Great- Nabonadius, most probably, reigning in Babylon about that time.
