Sandys: Specimens of Macaronic Poetry

Specimens of Macaronic Poetry by edited by William Sandys (1831)

This wonderful book contains the Pugna Porcorum per P. Porcium Poetam! It also contains the wonderful Canum Cum Catis Certamen Carmine Compositum Currente Calamo C. Catulli Caninii. Various other delights are included too!



  1. You are getting some absolute gems out of hiding - your hard work is much appreciated. I have to read this one!

  2. I actually found TWO fantastic macaronic books - let me go publish the other one right now. The other one has a long and VERY intriguing introduction!!! :-)
