Description:
Freiburg im Breisgau: Friedrich Riederer, 11 December 1493. – First edition. The first complete rhetoric in German. Friedrich Ried(e)rer's (c. 1450-c. 1510) work has to be esteemed as a landmark in the domain of rhetoric. Comprising ars rhetorica, ars dictandi and ars notaria, Riederer's book was intended for the most important fields of communication in his time, where rhetorical knowledge was used: chancery writers, notary's and other offices, scholarly research and teaching, preaching, municipal judicature and administration. The text is extensively treating the classical rhetorical theory including translations of parts of Cicero's De inventione and other texts. Moreover, it contains also detailed manuals on epistles and on legal contracts, providing a number of models. Riederer was an interesting and erudite character, both active as a humanist writer and a printer. He ran the second printing press at Freiburg im Breisgau and this is his first dated book. It was very successful and was… Read More
