Pike: Short Stories of Apuleius

The Short Stories of Apuleius by Joseph B. Pike (1918).
Thanks to a posting at one of the Latin listserves today, I learned about this book, previously unknown to me! The Latin text runs to appx. 100 pages, covering these stories:
  • Tale Of Aristomenes, the Commercial Traveler
  • Diophanes The Chaldean
  • Telyphron's Tale of the Witches
  • The Robber's Tale
  • The Tragedy Of Tlepolemus and Charite
  • Eaten Alive
  • The Lost Slippers
  • The Fuller's Wife
  • The Three Brothers
  • The Enamored Stepmother
  • The Jealous Wife
  • The Tale of the Tub
  • Cupid and Psyche
Who can resist the story of Cupid and Psyche after all??! Here is a painting of the famous lovers by Siemiradzki:
