Maphaeus Vegius and his thirteenth book of the Aeneid by Maffeo Vegio( Book )

8 editions published between 1978 and 2002 in English and Latin and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A fascinating and almost fantastic chapter in the history of Virgil's reception concerns the 'Thirteenth Book of the Aeneid' written at Pavia in 1428 by Maphaeus Vegius, then a mere lad of twenty-one. For a century-and-a-half following the invention of printing, the book was continually placed alongside the Aeneid as though part of it, but much more rarely thereafter. In the 'new book' the Rutulians surrender to Aeneas, Latinus returns Turnus' body to his father who performs the burial, Aeneas marries Lavinia and founds a city named after her, eventually succeeds to Latinus' kingdom, and in the end receives from Venus the gift of apotheosis among the stars." "This definitive edition, originally published in 1930 by Stanford University Press, includes a substantial introduction, Latin text faced by the English translation of Thomas Twyne (1584), Sebastian Brant's six delightful illustrative woodcuts (1502), and Gavin Douglas' Scots translation (first published in 1553). There is also a bibliography and a succinct commentary mainly devoted to Vegius' echoes of Virgil's own poetry."--BOOK JACKET
The shorter poems of Gavin Douglas by Gawin Douglas( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English, Middle and English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1967, this edition has been revised and updated by its editor, and includes substantial additional notes and bibliography. It contains Douglas's Palice of Honour, the major dream-vision poem he composed a decade before his Eneados translation. The Palice is a sprightly and learned poem, responsive both to Chaucerian and to Ovidian influences, but also inventively independent of them. Its yoking of poetics and the pursuit of virtue shows Douglas to be a significant early Renaissance writer. The volume also contains revised editions of two poems associated with Douglas, though unlikely to be his, the short poem Conscience and the lengthier and still neglected allegory of desire and self-government King Hart."--Pub. desc
The Makars : the poems of Henryson, Dunbar, and Douglas( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poetry of the Makars marked an extraordinary flowering of Scottish culture and the Scots language in the 15th and early 16th centuries. This anthology, introduced, edited and annotated by J.A. Tasioulas, makes available for the modern reader the complete poems of both Henryson and Dunbar, as well as Gavin Douglas's The Palis of Honoure. Old Scots words are glossed and medieval and classical references are explained to make this the most approachable collection of major poems in a period which forged a nation's cultural and political sense of itself, from the moral subtlety of Henryson, to the wild flytings of Dunbar, to the democratic humanism of Gavin Douglas."--Jacket
