An early edition of Erasmus's edition of Terence's plays. Compared to Erasmus's own writings, "of almost equal importance for the history of humanism and education are the editions he prepared of the classical authors They were of two kinds: editions of the text itself, usually with a commentary; and, in the case of the Greek authors, translations into Latin. These editions had wide circulation and served to open the ancient world to a far broader public than had access to it before" (Houghton Library, Erasmus on the 500th Anniversary of his Birth, 42a). The first Erasmus edition was printed in 1532 and was subsequently printed no less than 40 times during the 16th and 17th centuries. With commentaries by Aelius Donatus, Aemilius Asper, Lucius Annaeus Cornutus, and Giovanni Calfurino. Yale, Michigan, and NC only in OCLC."
