Page from Early Printed Aesop (1501): Rana Rupta

From the complete facsimile version online at the University of Mannheim Library.

Equari vult rana bovi: tumet ergo. Tumenti
Natus ait: "Cessa; pre bove tota nihil."
Rana dolet meliusque tumet; premit ille tumentem:
"Vincere non poteris, victa crepare potes."
Tertius iratam vexat tumor; illa tumoris
Copia findit eam: viscera rupta patent.
Cum maiore minor conferri desinat et se
Consulat et vires temperet ipse suas.
