Fowle: First Easy Latin Reading Book - Aesop's Fables

First Easy Latin Reading Book: Aesop's Fables by Edmund Fowle (1877).
This is an edition of Aesop's fables for beginning readers; there are 20 fables. Fowle first presents the fables without any notes, then it presents them with notes (see screenshot below), followed by detailed vocabulary lists, specifically for each fable. There is then a cumulative vocabulary list for all the fables together. You can open two copies of the book at once in your browser; open the fable text with notes in one window, and then open the vocabulary list for that fable in another window, so you have access to both at once.



  1. Where can I find the pdf of this book? Google Books doesn't seem to have it. Can I find it on your site some where?

    Thanks for any help.

  2. The download for the PDF worked for me, but perhaps you are in a country where it is blocked. Internet Archive might be a good option:
