Guido Pancirolli's (1523-99) Raccolta breve d'alcune cose piu segnalate c'hebbero gli antichi ... was first published in the form of a copiously annotated Latin translation of the original Italian manuscript (Hamburg 1599-1602) by Pancirolli's fellow lawyer Heinrich Salmuth of Hamburg. A second edition of Salmuth's version appeared, also in Hamburg, in 1607-8, with a third following in 1612. A French translation was published in Lyon in 1608. The original Italian text was not published until 1612, in Venice. The first English translation, The History of many memorable things ... appeared in London, as late as 1715. Offered here is the second edition of the first part only, containing 65 chapters on "the lost marvels of the ancients". The second part, Nova reperta, sive rerum memorabilium liber secundus (1608), with 25 chapters (in 780 pages) on such modern discoveries as the New World, Greek fire, sugar and clocks, is not present.
