(8), 645, (23) pp. ¶ The very rare and beautiful Froben-edition of Juvenal's famous Satires, noted for the learned scholia of Curio. "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." (Dibdin II:153). Graesse, III: 519.Juvenal's famous Satires (from around the end of the 1st till the beginning of the second century) constitute a number of famous and influential poems, all in the Roman genre of Satire, comprising a wide-ranging discussion of society and social ethics and moral. These poems came to play a great role in the Renaissance, when the genre was brought vividly to live by the Renaissance humanists, and the possibilities that came with the recently developed ease of printing greatly spread the fame of the work.
