E. Stanley Wires has in this magazine an article of some three-and-a-half pages, How Tiles Have Interpreted Aesop's Great Fables (10-12, 31). Illustrations include six Minton tiles, four English Printed Liverpool tiles, and four Zanesville tiles. (I am fortunate to have found all six Mintons, FS among the Liverpools, and all but Fortune and the Boy of the Zanesville tiles.) The article itself spends a good deal of time on Aesop's life and the history of the text. Is it true that many modern translations are based on Planudes? Aesop was a slave of Iadmon, not Ladmon, of Samos. I had not known that there were two tile companies in Zanesville, OH! Aesop does show up in a lot of places!
