The first printing of the Margarita Poetica was printed by Johannes Sensenschmidt in1472 , between 1472 and 1503 there appeared at least a dozen editions [In this edition the marginal index letters correspond to those of 1493 Venice edition]. Eyb went to Italy and devoted himself to humanistic study at the Universities of Pavia and Bologna. He returned to Germany in 1451, having been appointed Canon at Eichstätt and Bamberg.  From 1452 to 1459 he was again a student at Bologna, gaining the degree of doctor in 1459.   The Margarita is named after Eyb’s mother and was written in 1459.

Fabriccius observed the “Eyb stressed two things throughout the Margarita: to be able to write well and to be disposed to live properly.”

In a contrast to “Ars Dictaminis”  (perhaps the Middle Ages  version of TEXTING)  von Eyb uses this work to re-Introduce Cicero’s Vetera Rhetorica. While certainly there are many late medieval texts on letter writing, Eyb as can be seen in the structure of this book

The Content are in three parts, the first Epistola five Prologus, is a revised and augmented versionOF M.T.C. (CICERO) with excerpts taken from classical authors and Italian humanists and formulas for letter-writing.

The second part AUCTORITATES consists of an anthology of prose writers (including Cicero, Lactantius, Macrobuius, Plutarchus, etc.).

The third part ORATIONES: contains selections from Petrarch, dramatic poets (Terence, IMG_2269
Seneca, Plautus), and a variety of humanist speeches by Renaissance copyists, letter-writers and philosophers, including Johannes Lamola, Poggius Florentinus, Galeatius Sforza and the author himself.
