Publisher's Comments

The lack of a modern edition of the original Latin or of the 17th-century French translation, has led scholars to dismiss Conti's (1520-82) work as mere compilation and miss its importance as a standard reference work on classical myth for poets and other writers throughout the Renaissance. Mulryan and Brown (classics, both St. Bonaventure U.) present an English translation with explanatory footnotes and a substantial introduction. In an appendix, they analyze previous editions. The two volumes are paged and indexed together. The publisher is the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Annotation
