Comment:        RE: SHK 14.1824 Tully's Offices

For information on the influence of "Tully's Offices" in the Tudor
period scholars should take a look at Ben Schneider's concise summary at
the following URL:  purl.oclc.org/emls/iemls/shaksper/
files/ETHICAL%20TREATISS.txt, which includes the following information:

"Erasmus prefaced and annotated an edition of *De Officiis* in 1501.
Sir Thomas Elyot, in his popular *Governour* (1531), lists three
essential texts for bringing up yuoung gentlemen:  Plato's works,
Aristotle's *Ethics*, and *De Officiis*. "Those three bokes," Elyot
says, "be almost sufficient to make a perfecte and excellent governour"
(1.47-8)."

David Crosby

J.W. Binns: Intellectual Culture in Elizabethan and Jacobean England and
T.W. Baldwin: William Shakespere's Small Latine and Lesse Greeke. are
good references that will help situate Tully.
