Abstract

Rhetorica ad Herennium, and De Inventione, with the commentaries of Pietro Vettori (1499-1585) and Paulo Manuzzi (1512-74). Pr. Sebastian Gryphius, Lyon, 1555. A good example of a small-format classical text of the period. Since the ninth century these two texts, both ascribed to Cicero, had been copied together and were regarded as fundamental for teaching the art of rhetoric, that is, of fine Latin writing; they were often commented. Acquired by R. L. Dunbabin, first Professor of Classics at the University of Tasmania, 1 March 1918 and presumably given by him to the University Library in 1940, though his usual ex dono is not present. Cent Rare PA 6304 .R7 1555.
