Second printing (the best) of De Furia's noted edition. "Reprinted at Leipzig (the offered item), in a very handsome and more copious manner, in the following year (1810). This beautiful and elaborate editions presents us with the Fables of Æsop before they had been corrupted (as is supposd) by their first editor, Planudes. The text is taken from a celebrated and very ancient MS, preserved at Florence, in the Library of the Cassini Monks; written in a different style, and greatly departing, from the received text... This appears to be, upon the whole, the very best edition of Æsop extant." (Dibdin I, p. 252).
