Institutionis Oratoriae Liber Decimus (1891)
Classics Quintilian Olms 1967 Hardback 319 pages | | Product code: 85688 Book Ten of Quintilian's Training of the Orator covers his conviction that the orator must be a cultured man and outlines a programme of reading in Greek and Latin literature. 'Principal Peterson,' wrote a reviewer when this edition was published in 1891, 'has grappled with his task on all sides, with no little energy and success'; 120 years later it remains a classic work of scholarship, comprising Peterson's recension of the Latin text, extensive notes and an introduction discussing Quintilian's literary criticism and style. Facsimile reprint, no jacket.
