Your letter of December 28th,was duly received, but by reason of busy cares I have not been able to reply. The pamphlet sent by you came two or three days after the letter reached me. One sentence of your letter you would probably resent as an impertinence, or attribute to fanatical cant if I were to repeat it, with a request for you to make it of personal application to yourself. You will pardon me when I state that no man living has a greater interest in the question whether the Book of Mormon is a fabrication from Rev.
First published separately, with the Histories written and issued first, these two works were meant to form a continuous historical narrative in thirty books. Only about half of Tacitus's original thirty books survived, and their survival was dependent on just two manuscripts.
The first six books of the Annals survived in a single manuscript written in Germany aboutprobably in the Benedictine Abbey of Fulda.
It is generally agreed that it was copied from a text written in 'insular' script which was copied from a manuscript in 'rustic capitals', and it has been suggested that this latter was at least 4th and probably 3rd century, based on an analysis of errors made in copying the titulature and colophons of each book, which are most easily explained if these errors occurred in copying a volume written in the early period in which prose texts were normally written in comparatively large letters and very narrow columns, and the colophons were not laid out in the manner common in 5th century and later books.
There it remained, apparently without ever being copied. A letter of Pope Leo X of December 1, indicates that it had been stolen, and that Leo had paid a large amount of money for it.
At all events it passed into the hands of Pope Leo X. The monks of Corvey, who petitioned the Pope for the return of their treasure, were instead sent a copy of the printed volume together with an indulgence to make up the balance" http: This is referred to as M.
It derives from an ancestor written in Rustic Capitals, as it contains errors of transcription natural to that bookhand. However Boccaccio had certainly seen the text byand the MS is listed among the books given by him at his death to the monastery of S.
Whether he had 'liberated' it, or acquired it from another collector who had done so has been extensively debated, without final result.
That Niccolo had not acquired the MS legitimately is suggested by a letter to him from his friend Poggio Braccioliniasking to see it and promising to keep quiet about it. Knowledge of the text among the humanists is correspondingly limited in this period.
They were rescued, as the phrase goes, by some humanist, who was probably none other than Boccaccio. To Petrarch the works of Tacitus and Varro were only known in name.
The first to use these authors was Boccaccio; and this good fortune was granted him towards the end of his life. There can be no doubt that he possessed the Beneventan manuscripts of Tacitus and Varro which are now in the Laurentian library. This may be seen, on the one hand, from the copies of these manuscripts which he left in the Convent of S.
Spirito in Florence, which correspond perfectly with the original; and from the fact that Boccaccio's citations from Varro and Tacitus, in his Geneologia deorum and De claris mulieribus, as Pierre de Nolhac has shown, are taken only from books preserved in the Beneventan manuscripts, and from no others.
We have reason to believe they were not presented to him during his visits to Monte Cassino. Attracted by the fame of the abbey, as he told his pupil Benvenuto da Imolahe paid it a visit.
He found the library shamefully neglected, without bolt or lock, grass growing in the windows, dust thick on the books, monks using the precious manuscripts for turning out prayer-books, which they sold for a few soldi to women and children.
It all sounds uncommonly like an apology. He seems to be anxious to show that it was only act of simple piety to remove the precious classics to a place of safety, say to Florence.
