Description

The comedies of Plautus are the earliest surviving literary works in Latin. They were influential for Shakespeare (most clearly in The Comedy of Errors) and other Renaissance dramatists. This little set has 18th century bindings, and a prior owner’s Latin annotations on the play Amphitryo. Many early editions, like this one, mistakenly give the author’s name as “M. Accius Plautus.”
