Description

The French humanist Marc Antoine Muret (1526–1585) was a scholar of and commentator on Cicero, and as such naturally attracted the attention of Paulus Manutius and his son Aldus the Younger. Muret’s commentaries accompanied Aldine publications of the works of Terence, Horace, and Catullus, and this publication of his own orations served as a model of rhetorical elegance for students well into the 18th century.
