Dover Publications. Very Good. 2010. Softcover. 0486246094 . First edition thus. This is an unabridged republication of the first edition published by G. P. Putnam, 1954. From the back: The translator is T. H. White, author of The Once and Future King and outstanding medievalist. Of The Book of Beasts, White writes: "No Latin prose bestiary has ever before been printed, even in Latin. This is the first and only English translation in print." ... The bestiary was a bestseller in the Middle Ages, a kind of natural history cum-zoological survey that presumed to describe the animals of the world and to point out the human traits they exemplified. ... Much of the charm of this edition lies in the copious footnotes compiled by T. H. White. With immense erudition, wit, grace, and a singular lack of condescension, the author illuminates literary, scientific, historical, linguistic, and other aspects of the bestiarist's catalog. ... Both amusing and amazing, ; 8.0 X 5.6 X 0.7 inches; 320 pages .

Readers will laugh when reading his account of being at the wrong end of a cow at the wrong time; feel anger as he tells of horse dealers interested only in profit and cry at the tale of courageous, valiant animals who need to be put down. An additional treat is the inclusion of some of his humorous cartoons from a previous book, Who Has the 9:30 Appointment? (American Veterinary Publications, 1979). A book that will be loved by many, whether they be laughing or crying. " ; 8.60 X 5.90 X 1 inches; 244 pp pages .
