First appearance of Pierre Pithou's edition of Juvenal and Persius, based on the discovery of a 9th-century manuscript in the Benedictine abbey of Lorsch. The manuscript was turned up in the course of the Humanist program of hunting and recovering early monastic copies of classical texts, and it was awarded to Pithou (1539-1596) in his capacity as one of the ablest classicists of his time. In addition to the text of the poems, it contained the ancient scholia and glosses on the satirists, published in print here for the first time. The manuscript remains our oldest and best textural source for the Persius and Juvenal. It is kept at Montpellier, where it is known as "Codex Pithoeanus" after its first editor.

About Rodger Friedman Rare Book Studio

Rodger Friedman Rare Book Studio owes its name and its inspiration to the traditional Italian studio bibliografico. These small antiquarian bookshops, typically run by individuals who combine deep scholarship with a love of the printed object, remind us that underlying the words "study" and "studio" is the Latin term for zeal and devotion, studium. Since 1993, my goal has been to match discerning collectors with extraordinary books and manuscripts.
