A scarce edition of this collection of sayings and phrases, largely taken from the comedies of Terence. First published in the 1560s entirely in Latin, later editions added French and German translations (as here) to be more helpful to young students. This is the latest edition recorded under this title, and OCLC locates just two copies, in Amsterdam and Zurich.
