Image: Asellus et Liber

M0217 - M0218 - M0219
218. Asellus et Liber. Asellus quidam librum elegantem reperit; simul improbavit atque iocans discerpsit. Stupiditas criticum audaciorem facit.

("The Wise Donkey" by Frank Ver Beck)

M0218 (not in Perry). Source: Desbillons 7.14 (adapted into prose). This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; it appears original to Desbillons, as he cites no source. For a book that suffered a different fate, see #755.
