Notes: The second edition of Scaliger's Aristophanes - the first had appeared the previous year, and this printing is largely identical apart from the date on the title-page and the incorporation of the Aristophanic fragments, edited by Willem Canter (which nonetheless have their own title-page and pagination, and were also issued separately). It is properly a variorum, although Scaliger does contribute some original notes.
