“A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing or the other, and we then know how to meet him.”

― Aesop, Aesop’s Fables


Aesop’s fables have been printed for centuries and include some of the most famous fables and tales of all time. This 1878 edition features the artwork of Ernest Griset whose charming pieces personify animals in gloomy and dark themes. While Griset’s editions of Aesop’s Fables are not as popular or even as famous as that of Arthur Rackham, this work is highly desirable and deserves recognition for impressive use of animal personification.

 

This work was edited by Rundell who used the original texts of Croxall, Fontaine, and L’Estrange.
