Two student texts of the Attic orators Demosthenes and Aeschines from the prosecution of Athenian orator Ctesiphon, edited by German humanist Johann Reuchlin, published in Paris by Christian Wechel in 1543, together with an edition of Isocrates' Encomium Helenae published in Paris by Joannes Lodoicus (Jean Loys) in 1538. 64 pages of Demosthenes's oration On the crown have extensive interlinear annotations in Latin and marginal annotations in Greek. The opening of the Helen is annotated in the same manner.
