The eternal "Fables of Bidpai" originated nearly 2,000 years ago in a Sanskrit collection of animal tales called the Panchatantra. This charming and humorous cycle of stories has been translated throught the centuries everywhere from Ethiopia to China, finding its way in one form or another into the folklore of every major culture and tradition. The tales have influenced and inspired all our fables from Aesop to La Fontaine, including Uncle Remus, Arabian Nights, and Caterbury Tales.(Publisher). Good. Item #12380
