Description

The editio princeps of nine of Aristophanes’ comedies, lacking only the Lysistrata and Thesmophoriazusae, which would first be printed by Giunta in 1515. The editor, Marcus Musurus (1470–1512), claims to have consulted and compared many manuscripts in compiling this accurate edition of the texts of the plays, as well as the commentaries that accompany them. Musurus’s compendium of ancient scholia is printed in smaller Greek type around the lines of the plays. The book is open to the beginning of the Acharnes. Bound in English brown goatskin by Clarke & Bedford.
