Mirabelli: Polyanthea

Polyanthea by Domenico Nani Mirabelli (1512)

There is an impressive list of authors cited at the beginning of the book (a mixture of both classical and Christian authors), along with an alphabetical table of the sayings. The Polyanthea was a very popular book and, with over 25 editions in the 16th and 17th centuries, it was a source for both Latin and Greek learning throughout Europe.
