Aesop's Fables (Chambry edition)

Chambry 337 = Perry 270

Τοῖχος καὶ πάλος.

Τοῖχος σπαραττόμενος ὑπὸ πάλου βιαίως ἐφώνει· Τί με σπαράττεις μηδὲν ἠδικηκότα; Καὶ ὅς· Οὐκ ἐγώ, φησίν, αἴτιος τούτου, ἀλλ' ὁ ὄπισθεν σφοδρῶς με τύπτων.
Chambry published a multivolume edition of the fables for the Belles Lettres series in 1925/6 (Paris). He later revised this into a single volume, omitting hundreds of the fable variants. In addition, the numeration between these two volumes is not consistent. The texts here are taken from the 1925/6 edition, but the numeration follows the stanard single volume edition.
