Alphabetical Alphabet

We take for granted the use of the alphabet as a system for ordering things "alphabetically," but this was not something that was immediately obvious to people. One of the first ancient books to be organized alphabetically, in fact, was a collection of Aesop's fables written in Greek. For more information about the alphabet and alphabetizing, see Wikipedia.
