"In view of the large number of unused Mss. of Avianus which exist to-day in the libraries of Europe, a good deal remains yet to be done before the recensio of his Fables can be regarded as satisfactorily completed, and that, too, despite the fact that three critical editions have appeared within the last fifty years. The purpose of this article is partly to report upon the accession of new material, and partly thereby to invite scholars who may know of other Mss. bearing upon the general field of Avianus criticism to assist the writer in his attempt to secure a fairly complete knowledge of the Ms. tradition of this author." - author
