Cornucopiae Linguae Latinae

Niccolo Perotti (1429 - 1480) was an Italian humanist and author of one of the first modern Latin school grammars. Dedicated to the condottiere Federico III da Monfeltro, Perotti's Cornucopiae was printed postumously. The work is considered to be an encyclopedia of the classical world providing a wealth of linguistic, historical and cultural knowledge.
