Excerpt

In preparing this study I have depended almost entirely on the collections of books in the University Library. I should like to acknowledge my debt to all the individual members of the staff who have helped me during the past four years; but it is impossible to recall every instance of friendly aid. In particular, I wish to thank Dr. Marian Harman, Cataloger, who several times helped me through a puzzling passage of Renaissance Latin. I owe a special debt of gratitude to Miss Isabelle Grant, Librarian of the Rare Book Room, whose untiring patience and good humor have lightened many hours of work.

Professor Lane Cooper of Cornell, my former teacher, read all the manuscript, and offered many valuable suggestions. From the beginning of my researches among the Horatian commentators of the sixteenth century, Professors T. W. Baldwin and Harris Fletcher have offered constant encouragement and advice. The late Professor W. A. Oldfather, Chairman of the Editorial Board of these Studies, read the manuscript with care, and was ready to answer every inquiry made, thus saving me from several slips, and even an occasional error. Of course, none of my colleagues, nor Professor Cooper, can be held responsible for any errors that may remain in this monograph. I alone accept responsibility for the critical interpretations and for the textual evidence. I have not tampered with the text of any quotation from the Renaissance Latin, but have transcribed what I found in the sixteenth-century commentaries.
