Lacking the sub-title to Juvenal.

Juvenal [A.D. 30-130] was the greatest of the Roman satirists. His 16 satires were published between 110 and 130. Satire VI is on marriage, one of the most effective expressions of misogyny ever written, Satire X is one of Juvenal's finest poems, a magnificent sermon on the prober objects of prayer, by Samuel Johnson entitled 'The Vanity of Human Wishes', Satire XI is a charming invitation to dinner, Satire XII deals with friendship. Juvenal's work is one of the most impressive and original achievements in Roman literature. The Latin satirist Perseus [A.D. 34-62] joined the group of Stoices headed by the senator Thrasea Paetus. The Stoicism, he learned from his tutor Cornutus, was the dominant influence on his life. He wrote satire, modelled on Lucilius and Horace, as an engaged poet, to spread the stoic evangel. His reputation rests on his 6 satires. The printer, John Baskerville [1706-75], designed the famous type which bears his name. He started his own press in 1751-52. His first book was an edition of Vergil, published in 1757. His Press was of the finest, and though not commercially successful he did much to improve the standards of his day. Gaskell 15.
