Noel: Poggii Florentini Facetiarum
Poggii Florentini Facetiarum by François Noel (1798)
This is a two-volume edition of Poggio's Facetiae - as the subtitle explains: Notulis imitatores indicantibus et nonnullis sive Latinis, sive Gallicis imitationibus illustratus, simul ad fidem optimarum editionum emendatus. It also includes a life of Poggio, Vita Poggii. The imitations are in both verse and prose (mostly in verse), in Latin and also in French - all kinds of delights here!
