     This book was printed at Lyons by Guillelmum Laemarium. The pages contain two columns, the left consisting of the text in Greek, and the right consisting of the text in Latin. It contains the text translated by Marsilio Ficino, who lived between 19 October, 1433 and October, 1499. He spent his life as a priest, doctor and musician; he was fascinated with astrology and dabbled in it extensively. The title phrase Opera Omnia Que Exstant translates into Complete Works That Exist. Ficino was noted for his excellent translations of classical works, which included this volume.
