Description

The anonymous translation of Aristotle's Rhetoric, based on the Latin version which was circulating during the Middle Ages and witnessed by the ms. Vatican City, BAV, Chig. M.VI.126, might be the earliest vernacular translation of the work. The Vatican ms. is all the more important for it witnesses marginal annotations by the Florentine scholar Jacopo Corbinelli who owned the book in the mid-16th c.
