Excerpt from Sappho: Memoir, Text, Selected Renderings and a Literal Translation

It is curious to note how early in the history of printing the literature of Sappho began. The British Museum contains a sort of commentary on Sappho which is dated 1475 in the Catalogue; this is but twenty years later than the famous Mazarin Bible, and only one year after the firstbook was printed in England. It is written in Latin by Georgius Alexandrinus Merula, and is of much interest, apart from its strange type and contractions of words.
