The Fables of Babrius. Translated into English Verse from the Text of Sir G. Cornewall Lewis. By the Rev. James Davies, some time Scholar of Lincoln ColL Oxford. Fcap. cloth, antique, elegantly printed, price 6s.

." Who was Babrius?" The reply may not improbably startle the reader. Babriua was the real, original jEsop. Nothing is so fabulous about the fables of our childhood as their reputed authorship. . . Mr. Davies has succeeded, to a very remarkable degree, in retaining the simplicity and terseness which are requisite to enforce the point of an apologue.'—Daily Nbws.

* The £2sop of our boyhood is dethroned, and his sceptre taken from him, by no leu a disenchonter than Her Majesty's Secretary of State for the Home Department. . . Here stands the fact that jEsop was not the author of the world-famed fables, but that the real fabricator was one Babrius. . . So Babrius has been Anally set up to rule over the realm of early fables, and ^Esop passes into the category of myths or plagiarists, according to the evidence.'—Illustrated London Nrws.

'A fable-book which Is admirably adapted to take the place of the imperfect collections of .ZEsopian wisdom which have hitherto held the first place in our juvenile libraries.'—Hereford Times.
