Eton College was already more than 200 years old when schoolboys there learned their Latin literature from this anthology, showing selections from Ovid’s Amores and Ars Amatoria. The text was printed again, enlarged, in 1701 then throughout the 18th century, but few examples survive. Only two other copies of this 1679 edition are known, one at Oxford and one at Cambridge.
