Ottmar: Ioci ac sales mire festivi
Ioci ac sales mire festivi by Ottmar Luscinius (1524)
As the title explains, these are Ioci ac sales mire festivi, ab Ottomaro Luscinio Argentino partim selecti ex bonorum utriusque linguae authorum mundo, partim longis peregrinationibus visi et auditi, ac in Centurias duas digesti. The two languages are Latin and Greek. Ottmar Luscinius (also known as Othmar or Otmar Nachtgall) was a humanist scholar, b. 1487 in Strasbourg, and d. 1537 in Freiburg.
