The fables of Esop in English. With all his life and fortune, how he was subtile, wise, and born in Greece, not far from Troy the Great, in a town named Amonio. He was of all other men most deformed, and evil-shapen; for he had a great head, a large visage, long jaws, sharp eyes, a short neck, crook backed, great belly, great legs, large feet; and yet that which was worse, he was dumb, and could not speak: but not withstanding this, he had a singular wit, and was very ingenious and subtill in cavillations, and pleasant in words, after he came to his speech. Whereunto are added the fables of Avian: and also the fable of Alphonse, with the fables of Poge the Florentine, very pleasant to be read.
