The renaissance rhetorics generally share the pattern of very high peaks followed by steep declines. Erasmus’s De copia was very successful 1512–70; his De conscribendis epistolis 1521–60; Agricola 1520–60. Printing of Melanchthon, which had reached a very high level 1520–70, declined steeply after 1590. The peaks of production for Erasmus, Agricola, and Melanchthon coincide fairly closely with those for Cicero and Quintilian. By contrast, the work of Talon and Soarez grows in success after 1560 and continues strongly into the seventeenth century.
