Catalogue Note

This compilation of Latin grammatical texts was first printed by Nicolas Jenson c. 1476. This edition is copied from the Venice edition of 1491, hence the false imprint, which features in other works printed by Pachel from Venetian originals.

Diomedes probably wrote his comprehensive treatise in the late fourth century; it contains numerous examples of dactylic hexameters and is considered the most extensive grammatical treatise to survive from that time. The woodcut on the title-page depicts Diomedes presenting his treatise to Athanasius, the dedicatee.
