La morale filosofia brevemente descritta

Title

La morale filosofia brevemente descritta

Description

The printed edition is a collection of three different philosophical works: the book opens with Epictetus' Moral Philosophy, goes on with the pseudo-aristotelian treatise On Virtues and Vices and ends up with Plutarch's On Brotherly Love. Each translation is dedicated to a specific dedicatee. The Aristotelian section is all the more important because it presents the first printed vernacular translation of the treatise On Virtues and Vices which had quite a large circulation, though mainly in Latin, throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
