Dioscorides flourished under Nero and Vespasian*
about TO years after Christ. He was born in Cili-
pia, and was atijrst by profession a soldier, but this
he laid aside for the study of botany. There was
formerly a great .dispute between Pandidphus Col*
lenujius, and Leonicus Thomxus, and their respec-
tive partisans ; the former asserting that Pliny co-
pied Dioscorides, the latter, that Dioscorides had
borrowed his work from Pliny : perhaps neither of
the opinions is true.

Stephen Dolet was born at Orleans in 1509. He
is reported to have been the natural son of Fransis I.
by a ycung woman of Orleans, named Cureau. He
was an eminent Latin scholar, a poet, orator, and
printer. He was accused of heresy, and condemn-
ed ; though his only crime appears to have been
his sending a packet to Paris of what the priests
chose to call heretical books. He was publicly burnt
at Paris, Aug. 3<1, 1546, in the 36th year of his age.

Donatus, Editio Tabellaris, sine ulla nota. Of
this celebrated work every 1 Bibliographer speaks,
and acknowledgers it to be one of the first efforts- at
printing by means of letters tut on wooden blocks.
It has been printed with several titles, such as Dona-
tus ; Donatus Minor; Donatus pro puerulis ;
DottATT Arsy &c. but the work is the same, vit.
Elements of the Latin Language for the Use of Chil-
dren, The following are the principal Editions of
this curious book; -

1. Donatus, 4to. sine ulla nota, Charactere Go*'
thico Missalium majore crasso, et in Tabtrfts-Lig-
neis insculpto. The character is allowed to be very
similar to that of the Bible mentioned in this work y
vbli 1 . p. 1 S5. Both are sifp^Os^d'to be the produce
of the Fausta-Guttembergidn- press at Merits, about
A. D. 1450.

2. Donatus, sine ulla nota. Character Missa*
Uum minore, &c. This consists of 28 pages ; the
character similar to the preceding. Meeiman, Orig.
Typogr, vol. 2. p. 220. Tab. II. gives a fac simile
of a fragment of this rare work, and which he attri-
butes to Laurence Coster. But others, supported
by more respectable documents, believe it to have
been the first attempt made by /. Gutiemberg, at
Strasburgh, between 1436 and 1439.

3. Donatus Minor, &c. 4to. sine ulla nota. In a
Gothic character, similar to that of the Psalter
printed by Fust in 1457. In the first page there is

D O 145

9 wooden cut, representing a school-master ; and in
the 2d, a figure of St. Jerom.

4. Donatus Etimologizatus, 4to. sine ulla nota.
It contains 1 2 leaves, is done in a Gothic character,
and the initials are similar to those of the Bible
printed at Mentz, in 1462, by Fust and Schoiffer.
See vol. 1. p. 186.

5. Donatus Etimologizatus, 4to. sine ulla nota.
The character is Gothic, but more elegant than
that of the preceding. It consists of 24 leaves. In
the first page there is a cut, representing a master
teaching his scholars.

6. Donatus Etimologizatus, 4to. sine ulla nota.
-r-With a German interpretation.

7. Donatus Minor, 4to. Hafnia;, Gvtfridus de
Ghemen. In Gothic characters. Printed about the
year 1491.

8. Donatus Minor, cum Remigio ad usum Scho-
larum Anglicarum Pusillorum, 4to. Westmonasterii
in Donio Caxton, sine anno. It is in Gothic cha-
racters, and contains 14 leaves. In this book the.
declension of some of the pronouns is very remark-
able. N. Ego. G. Mei, vel mis. N. Tu. G. TM
vel tis. N. 2uis, vel que, vel qua. Quod, vel quid.
PL. D. et Ab. Quis, vel quibus. Also nostras and
vestras are declined throughout without the neuter

Augusta?, impressus per JoamiemSckonsperger. In
Gothic characters; done probably about the Year


146 D O

10. Donatus Minor, 4to. Coloniae, 2uentet.
14-57. The above Edition is said to have been seen
at Dresden, in the year 1722, by Mr. La Croze and
Mr. Duchat. But there is undoubtedly a mistake
somewhere, either in the account or in the date; for
k does not appear that 2uintel printed any book
with a date at Cologne previous to 1479.

11. Donatus Minor, sine ulla nota. This is
supposed to have been done by Sweynheim and
Pannartz, with metal types. It is not likely that a
perfect copy of this is extant. The fragment pos-
sessed by Mariangelus Accursius, was probably of
this Edition.

12. Donatus Grammaticus, Allegorice Traduc-
tus, fol. sine ulla nota. The types are those of Gun-
terZainer, who was a printer at Augsburg in 1468;
It consists of 7 leaves. Denis mentions another
Edition, in Gothic characters, which he supposes
was printed in 1470. It consists of 28 leaves.

1559. This famous book is not merely a collection
of rules, to teach children how to read, as several
have supposed ; but it is a collection of grammatical
tracts, viz. De Litteris, Si/ Ha bis, Pedibus, et Torus i
De Otto Partibus Orationis ; De Barbarismo, So-
laccismo, Schematibus, &c. all of which have been
printed a vast number of times, unitedly and sepa-

lated into a great variety of languages.

Donati Commentarii in quinque Comoedias Te-
rentii, fol. sine ulla nota. At the end it has the
following distich :

Qui cupit obstrusum frugem gustasse Terentii
Donatum quaerat noscere Grammaticum.
This work appears to have been executed with the
types of John Mentellin of Strasburg. The origi-
nal Edition, probably executed previous to 1460.
John Mentellin is supposed to have been one of the
companions of Fust and Schoiffer. Some make him
the inventor of printing, but without any probable
ground. The above work is extremely scarce^ and
has been first mentioned by the Abbe Boni, Bib,
Port. vol. 2. p. 274.

rentii, fol. Romas, Sweynheim et Pannartz, 1471.

' This may be distinguished from the other by the
verses of Raphael Zovenzcvius, which it contains. It
js much more elegant than the Roman Edition, and
probably more ancient. Another Edition, with the
verses of Zovenzonius, is mentioned in the Pinellian
Catalogue, but it is different from the above.

fol. Mediol. Anth. Za rottus, 1476. These
Commentaries were often printed with the Text of
Terence. See Terentius; one of the best E4*r


tlons of which is that of Robert Stephens, Parisiis,

Donati Commentarius in Virgilium, fol. Venet.
1529. For those Editions, connected with the Text
of Virgil, see the article Virgilii Opera,

j^lius Donatus, to whom the above works are
attributed, was a Roman Grammar'an, who flou-
rished in the 4th century, or about A. D. 320. He
is said to have been one of the preceptors of St. Je-
rom. He wrote Commentaries on Terence and
Virgil, but they are lost: those which go under his
name are spurious. That on Terence was probably
written by Evanthius.

pletely suppressed both the Editions. See Vogt.

Andrew Dudith was born at Bude in Hungary in
1533. He was an excellent Greek and Latin scho-
lar, and cultivated poetry and eloquence with con-
siderable success. Ferdinand II. with whom he
was a great favourite, gave hjm the bishopric of
Tina in Dalmatia in 1560, and the clergy of Hun-
gary deputed him to the council of Trent. After
his return he became a protestant, gave up his bi-
shopric, and married one of the ladies of honour
to the queen. He is said to have been so fond of
Cicero* that he wrote the whole of that author's
works thrice with his own hand. He died in 1589.

Loud. 1718, 1 vol. fol. and 2 vols, were added by-wa
of Supplement by Mr. Stevens, Lond. 172223.

3/r. Roger Dodsworth had the principal share in
this work, He spent 30 years in collectings far and
'wide, the different charters, grants, records, &c. of
which it is composed. Sir W. Dugdalc supervised
the whole, and added much to every part j and Mr.
Stevens has very nearly completed the undertaking
in his supplementary volumes already noticed. The
original work is extremely scarce, and very dear,
and not always to be found complete. The 3d vo-
lume is particularly scarce. Mr. Stevens's work is
also uncommon j but the 2d volume is remarkably
rare. Some Catholic writers say, that the reason
why the Monasticon is so scarce is, the British go-
vernment suppressed it, lest the popish religion should
be again established in these nations ; and the clergy,
knowing from this work the lands, &c. granted
to the different religious houses, should be led to
reclaim, them. This I believe to be a mere slan-
der; for the only reason of the scarcity of the work
js,, that there were few copies printed ; and that
when its merit was known abroad, the copies were
all eagerly bought up. This is the reason why the
hook is perhaps more frequently to be met with on
the Continent than in Great Britain.

What a pity it is, that such an important work is
not reprinted ! a work so essential, to the history
(political, religious, and literary) of Great Britain.
I/some public-spirited bookseller would come for-
ward, and offer, a new Edition of the Mojiastico?i to

I>U 157

tlie nation, I have no doubt but the public at large
would favour the undertaking. In a new Edition
the original materials might perhaps be better ar-
ranged, the Supplement of Mr. Stevens incorporated
with it, as also Mr. Dugdale's History of St. PauVs %
Lond. 1658, fol. to which a Glossary should be an-
nexed, to explain the difficult and obsolete words.

Sir W. Dugdale was born in Warwickshire in
4 605, and died in 1686. He was a correct historian
and profound antiquarian : he is author of several
works, all of which are deservedly esteemed.
