Description

Annibal Caro's translation of Aristotle's Rhetoric, completed - as the original autograph ms. now in the Ambrosiana (O 120 sup.) confirms - in 1551, was not printed until 1570. The original ms. shows quite a substantial revision of the text and would deserves a comparison with the printed edition. Ms. Reg. Lat. 1603 witnesses instead the reception of Caro's translation, with several passages from the text quoted within a miscellany of works on poetics and rhetoric.
