Quintilian, and J.S. Watson. Institutes of Oratory. Edited by Lee Honeycutt, 2010. Kindle Electronic Edition. Introductory Notes:
This work, as described in the appendices, was lost but not forgotten, known only in some fragmentary manuscripts until the 15th century discovery of a complete copy at the Council of Constance. In the years that followed Poggio’s rediscovery of Quintilian the text was published widely, influencing many influential people in the Reformation and Enlightenment traditions (Loc. 14051).
The text used for the Kindle is “an edited version of the 1856 English translation by the Rev. John Selby Watson” (Loc. 14168). There has been some work to conform spelling and punctuation to modern American English standards. The footnotes from Watson’s edition were removed for ease of reading.
Quintilian is normally cited by book (Roman numeral), chapter, and section numbers (both in Arabic numerals). Some scholars use Arabic numbers for all three.
