"The interest of the book is copious and varied."--Times Literary Supplement "Read Animals for the pleasure of the prose, the careful collection of references in the written sources, and the then-remarkable variety of subjects considered."--Scholia Reviews "Packed with a wide variety of authors and texts... Anyone who enjoys poking about in the lesser known corners of antiquity or who wants interesting tidbits with which to enliven a classroom, will enjoy this book immensely."--Classcial Outlook
