Palingenius: Zodiacus Vitae

Zodiacus Vitae by Palingenius (1832)

This is a modern edition of Palingenius edited by C. H. Weise. Palingenius was an early 16th-century neo-Latin poet. His Zodiacus is a poem in 12 books (for the 12 signs of the zodiac), and it is delightful to read. An English translation, The Zodiake of Life, was published in 1565.
