“Many commit the same crime with a very different result. One bears a cross for his crime; another a crown.”

Juvenal, The Satires

 

A rare 1551 printing of ‘The Satires’ of Juvenal and Persius printed by Froben. This collection of satirical poetry was written in the late 1st and 2nd centuries. These satires discuss society, social norms, irony, each of these providing insight to the morals and values of Roman life at the time. Juvenal outlines many of the concerns he has with Roman citizens including unfaithfulness and greed; issues he recognized as downfalls to society.

 

This edition features the commentary of numerous 16th-century scholars including Britannico, Baden, and Plautius. However, the most notable name to contribute to this edition was Curio. According to Dibdin,

“This edition, printed by one of Froben’s sons, is noticed by Ruperti as containing the Scholia of Curio. Henninius, in his edition of 1685, more particularly discusses the Scholia of Curio, and the merits of Britannicus. This edition of 1551 is scarce.”
