Description

Giovan Francesco Zeffi's translation of the pseudo-Aristotelian Rhetoric to Alexander is the first of few Italian translations of the work. It is dedicated to Antonio Prioli, 'procuratore di San Marco', and it is conceived as a handy compendium of rhetoric, much more suitable for an orator than the difficult text of Aristotlle's main Rhetoric.
