Publication Details: Venice: Girolamo Scotto, 1545

Notes: A scarce printing (outside Italy) of Latin translations of the surviving works of the Greek orators Aeschines and Demosthenes. COPAC locates only two copies, in Oxford and Manchester; Worldcat adds two more in Europe (BnF and Munich) plus a scattering around the USA. EDIT16 records suggest that this is the first Latin edition of the orators printed in Italy; unusually, the original Greek texts had been printed first.
