¶ "Like other works in the whore dialogue tradition, the discourse is between a more experienced older woman (Tullia) and a younger one (in this case her maid, the 15-year-old Octavia), the former instructing the latter mainly in the pleasures of lesbianism but also - and this is one of the features that make Chorier's text stand out - in the supposed delights of whipping and being whipped." (J.R. Yamamoto-Wilson. Pain, pleasure and perversity ... p.100)
¶ This edition not in Ebert, nor Brunet. With the 7th colloquium (not present in the first edition): Fescennini.

¶ Second edition (first: Aldus 1514). Edited by Jacobus Bedrotus, with the assistance of Christianus Herlinus. "According to Casaubon, the editors were Bedrotus and Herlinus, two young Germans, possessing more enthusiasm than correctness; but much to be praised for this attempt - in which they would probably have succeeded better had their judgment and maturity of reading been equal to their ardour." (Dibdin I/332). In the preliminaries a catalogue of writers, mentioning hundreds of names. "To the quotations in Athenaeus we are indebted for our knowledge of passages from about 700 ancient writers who would otherwise be unknown to us." (Sandys I/330). Jacobus Bedrotus (1495-1541) was professor of Greek in Basel, and from 1525 in Strasburg. Christianus Herlinus (+1562) was first of all mathematician. He built the clock that can still be admired in Strasburg cathedral.

¶ Provenance: ms. owner's entries: "Ex libris Theodori Duntij (?) Venlonensis", and "B. Wolde".
¶ `The first full-scale analysis of Greek prose usage based on direct study of the whole range of accessible ancient sources". (Anthony .Grafton).Considered to be the most beautiful and best edition. Augmented greatly in comparison to the first editions (1529 and 1530), this work was used as a basis for Estienne's Thesaurus linguae graecae. Primarily meant to elucidate the legal terminology of Greece and Rome, the Commentarii soon became a veritable text book and common storehouse for succeeding lexicographers. Guillaume Budé thus gained a commanding reputation by this book. Budaeus was, beyond question, the best Greek scholar of his day in Europe. (Sandys II/ 170-171; The Quarterly Review 22, p.313; Cambridge Modern History I.612). "Edition la meilleure de ces disquisitions très savantes, qui ont été fort utiles à la science, mais dont on fait maintenant peu d'usage." (Renouard, Estienne 71/72.7).

CAPILUPI, LELIO.
Centones ex Virgilio.
[Roma, Valerius Doricus imprimebat, ca.1555-60?]. 4to. (19, 5x13, 7cm). [iv], 64, [4] pp. Late 19th cent.half calf with marbled boards. (a few old annotations (editorial corrections? See Tucker p.284), slight marginal worming throughout; very slightly foxed, a few light waterstains)
¶ Dedicated to Joachim du Bellay by the editor Antonio Possevino. Possevino might have played a rather dubious role in re-issues of the Centones ex Virgilio de vita monachum (see Tucker p. 284 and further)
¶ With an emblematic woodcut on the title-page, depicting a (urinating) dog (or wolf). Hovering above the beast we find an hourglass (Bibliothèque Mazarine). (The Houghton Library states their title-page woodcut depicts a Cynocephalus.)
¶ Early, rare edition of these (satirical) poems made up of verses of another poem, a sort of 'patchwork'.
¶ Mantuan poet Lelio Capilupi (1497-1560) seems to have been very reluctant to have these centones published at all, not in the least "through anticipation of the moral and religious reaction this ... would provoke." Indeed, his 'Centones ex Virgilio de vita monachorum' - a pastiche of verses from Virgil made up to attack monks; Cento II in our copy - was put on the Index in 1557 (G. Tucker in: Ut Granum Sinapis, pp.285-86).
¶ Early gatherings of this collection of 13 centones (including this one) still remain a "bibliographical and historical puzzle". According to Tucker, this would be a collection printed in "Stage 1.B" (very shortly after the death of Julius III in March 1555; see copies in the Vatican Library and Siena). (Tucker pp.267, 282-83, 285)
¶ Other issue of Rhodes IV (Rhodes, Lelio Capilupi and the 'Centones ex Virgilio' in: The Library 1994, pp. 208-218)
¶ Same title-page as Edit16: CNCE 9139 but different collation.
¶ Only 4 real copies in Worldcat
