Of these fables, I have seen three copies in
three different languages: 1. In Greek, translated by Simeon
Seth (A.D. 1100) from the Arabic, and published by Starck at
Berlin in 1697, in 12mo. 2. In Latin, a version from the
Greek Sapientia Indorum, inserted by Pere Poussin at the end
of his edition of Pachymer, (p. 547 - 620, edit. Roman.) 3.
In French, from the Turkish, dedicated, in 1540, to Sultan
Soliman Contes et Fables Indiennes de Bidpai et de Lokman,
par Mm. Galland et Cardonne, Paris, 1778, 3 vols. in 12mo.
Mr. Warton (History of English Poetry, vol. i. p. 129 - 131)
takes a larger scope.
