Chapter Summary

This chapter in Latin with translation in English, commences with a discussion on Angelo Poliziano, preliminary lecture on Aristotle's prior analytics: Lamia. This text follows Ari Wesseling's excellent edition, based on the 1492 printed edition of the Florentine Antonio Miscomini; Wesseling has given it the siglum "A," also used here. "A" was the only edition produced during Poliziano's lifetime. Wesseling has presented a fairly full critical apparatus, having collated his text with six later editions; that apparatus is not reproduced here. The present text differs from Wesseling in some minor matters of punctuation and orthography. Part of Poliziano's brilliance lies in the manner in which he seamlessly combines, recombines, and rings changes both major and minor on the form and the content of his ancient sources. In this edition, quotations are indicated as such (within quotation marks) only when Poliziano draws attention to his quotation, whether explicitly or implicitly.
