Not illustrated. 1787 edition. Excerpt: ...tacitus, silent, is the point of the following epigram, written by John Onxien, the celebrated Epigrammatist in king James the first's time. 'In Cornelium. 'Cornutum te, Cornell, scis esse, tacesque, 'Non Cornelius es tu modo, fed Tacitus.' Owen's Epigrmsa were first published in 1606; but that book of them, in which this epigram is inserted, did not appear till I6iz, in which year that and the several other books before published, and some additional ones made their appearance in a small volume printed at London. With respect, however, to the passage in the text, the following anecdote is related: ' His majesty' king James the first 'observed a quaint interrogatory put to a jealous lawyer, out of that famous 1 comedy of Ignoramus, the which his majesty highly commended, 'viz. whether he desired most or rather to be termed Publius Cornelius 'or Cornelius Tacitus, in further approbation of which comedy, be sides in opposition and dislike of another comedy performed and acted before his majesty by the scholars of the university of Oxford, 4 that as in Cambridge one Sleep made him wake, so in Oxford one 'Wait made him sleep.' Witty Apophthegms delivered by king James, Hug 3 Stuprum; ne dubites. Ha he! Pol. Deformem? irrides, aquariole? Cup. Pulchra uxor, perverse rem intelligis. Pol. Quid est igitur? Cup. Potin' ornatu alio aliam simularc feminam? Pol. Possum. Cup. Atque, ut tradere alicui, qui pecus est Vel maximea? pudorem haud extorserit, ne metuas. Pol. Quemquamne ego hominem ut metuam, quae tot viros toties Verberaverim? Cup. Me, scio, saepius. Pol. Mihi des aurum; Effectum reddam optime, mi Cupes. Cup. En duos aureos: Postquam effeceris, alteros tautos dedero. Pol. Convenit, Absente me, modo ne scortum, quod soles, in aedes.

It had gone through at least nine editions prior to this one, all of them, according to Hawkins were "failures." Ruggles' classic acerbic satire of the English bench and bar was written in Latin and first performed in 1615. Designed to ridicule the language of the common law and the dullness of lawyers, the play is based on events relating to a legal dispute between the vice-chancellor of Cambridge University and the mayor of Cambridge, Francis Brakin. The lawyers who were the subject of the play's satire did not enjoy the work; Sir Edward Coke, the Lord Chief Justice, believed that he was a target of some of the barbs. The play provoked a quarrel between academics and lawyers. The lawyers responded with satirical poems and ballads, which inspired responses by the academics, to create a passionate controversy. Ruggle's play even had an influence in the reform of legal language in England. 64 Critical Review 333.
