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 .
