The Book:  Three Hundred Aesop's Fables, published in 1875, is a rare collection of Aesop's timeless fables, translated by Rev. Geo. Fyler Townsend and beautifully illustrated by Harrison Weir. This edition stands out for its faithful translation from Greek, offering readers both authenticity and insight into the ancient world.

The Author:  Aesop (c. 620–564 BCE; formerly rendered as Æsop) was a Greek fabulist and storyteller credited with many fables now collectively known as Aesop's Fables. Although his existence remains unclear and no writings by him survive, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day. Many of the tales associated with him are characterized by anthropomorphic animal characters.

The Illustrator:  "Harrison William Weir RI (5 May 1824 – 3 January 1906), known as "The Father of the Cat Fancy", was a British artist.
He organized the first cat show in England, at the Crystal Palace, London, in July 1871. He and his brother, John Jenner Weir, both served as judges in the show. In 1887 Harrison Weir founded the National Cat Club and was its first President and Show Manager until his resignation in 1890."
