A pictorial odyssey through some #FabulaeFaciles

A while ago I ran some tweets with pics from an old copy of F. Ritchies's Fabulae Faciles, a Latin storybook for schoolchildren illustrated by Robinson. I've lazily just embedded the tweets below--enjoy!

This week I'll be tweeting pics each day of Robinson's illustrations from #FabulaeFaciles by F. Ritchie pic.twitter.com/n17v0kx1PH— David Colwill (@majikmutton) April 10, 2017

Day 2 of #fabulaefaciles. Hercules, boy and man. Hercules likes to strangle things, doesn't like centaurs. pic.twitter.com/qVbB1c6p0C— David Colwill (@majikmutton) April 11, 2017
