The eagle and the robin :
an apologue /
translated from the original of Æsop, written two thousand years since, and now rendered in familiar verse by H.G. L. Mag. ; with An old cat's prophecy : taken out of an old copy of verses / suppos'd to be writ by John Lidgate, a monk of Bury.
|Main Creator:||H. G. (Horat. Gram.)|
|Published / Created:||
London : Printed and sold by H. Hills ..., 1709.
A political satire, apparently not related to Aesop. Cf. Foxon E2.
Halkett & Laing (2nd ed., VI, p. 336) and Morgan (L150) identify the Horat. Gram. who signed the preface as Horatio Gram. Foxon (E2) interprets the name as Horatius Grammaticus and also rejects an attribution to William King.
An old cat's prophecy was previously published under the title: The beasts in power. Attributed wrongly (?) to William King (Foxon B125).
