Note:Lucretius Carus, Titus was a roman poet and philosopher, probably 94 tot 55 bc. His only preserved work is De rerum natura. Cf Gordon - A bibliography of Lucretius, London, 1962 (Soho Bibliograpies, no 12).
Voet nr. 1589: Edited by Obertus Gifanius. A number of copies were sold with the date of 1565 on the title-page, but very likely to sell them better during the Lent Fair of 1566 at Frankfurt, part of the edition received a title-page with the date of 1566. In fact, when printing the last quires, Plantin anticipated the problem and confirmed in the colophon having published his Lucretius in 1566
