Rare, complete 1491 first edition work of Latin Grammar!

 

Diomedes Grammaticus was a 4th-century Latin grammarian known solely for his grammar treatise – ‘Ars Grammatica’.

This book included the works of Flavius Caper, Phocas, Agroecius, Aelius Donatus, Maurus Servius Honoratus, and of course Diomedes and was designed for teaching grammar, writing, and public speaking.
