Please help evaluate online materials for new textbook

More blog comics

Summer Round-Up: June 22

Summer Round-Up: June 22. This past week I had a FANTASTIC time looking for Latin Aesop's fables at Google Books and other online resources, in lieu of my usual blogging.



GoogleBooks has now scanned enough books from enough libraries that I have been able to pull together a very respectable online collection that represents all the major collections of Aesop's fables in Latin - ancient verse, medieval verse and prose, Renaissance verse and prose, plus all kinds of interesting modern… Continue
