EAGLE AND THE ROBIN
, 1709. 1709. Very Good. G., H. (Horat. Gram.) THE EAGLE AND THE ROBIN. An Apologue. Translated from the Original of Aesop, written Two Thousand Years since, and now rendered in familiar Verse... Together with TAFFEY'S TRIUMPH: Or, A New Translation of the Cambro-muo-maxia: In Imitation of Milton. By a Gentleman of Oxford. London: Printed and Sold by Henry Hills... 1709. 16 pp. Octavo, 7 x 4 3/8 in., disbound: The first and final (conjugate) leaves are detached and separated at the fold, else clean and very good. "Preface signed 'Horat. Gram.' presumably for Horace the schoolmaster. There is no evidence that it was translated from Aesop. Printed in Nichols, Collection III. 1-13 as by William King (1663-1712)... the attribution should be treated with suspicion. ... 'Taffey's triumph' is Daniel Bellamy's translation of Edward Holdsworth's Muscipula." (Foxon E5).
