    Excerpt from The Book of Table-Talk, Vol. 1: Illustrated With Wood-Cuts

    The compilers of collections of this kind among the ancients seem to have had generally a very different taste in the matter of title-pages from our German doctor. Both the elder Pliny, in the Dedication of his Natural History to Prince Titus, the son of the Emperor Vespasian, and Aulus Gellius, in the Preface to his Attic Nights, have enumerated several examples of what the latter calls the festivitates inscriptionum - the fanci ful titles - which had been given to books somewhat like theirs by many preceding Greek and Roman writers they are all distinguished by their brevity, as well as by their prettiness or fantastic character. Among them are - Muses, the Muses; Silva, a Forest; Knew, a Comb of Honey; Raga: Malian, Amalthea's Horn (the horn of plenty) Antiques Lectiones, Ancient Readings; number, a Tablet; Emugzm, a Manual or Hand-book; Pandectw, literally an Omnium-gatherum, or medley of all kinds of things; 3.3mm, a Library; Aupav, or Pratum, a Mea dow, 8m. Most of these are mentioned by both writers.
