    Cochanovius Nicholas

    Cochanovius Nicholas(Polon. Kochanowski,)  was a Polish Knight, and Vice-Prefect of Radom, a town in the Palatinate of Sandomir. He is mentioned by Sandius as the author of Admonitory Verses to his Children in the Polish language, published first in the year 1584, and again in 1639, at Cracow, 4to., with the works of his nephew, John Cochanovius, the Prince of Polish Poets.

    Count Krasinski mentions it " as a proof of the intellectual degradation, and the corruption of taste introduced by the Jesuits, that the most classical productions of the sixteenth century, the Augustan era of Polish literature, were not reprinted during a space of more than a century, although after the revival of learning in Poland they wentthrough many editions, and still continue to be reprinted. Thus," says the Count, "the poems of John Kochanowski ([who] died 1584), were printed several times before 1639 ; but from that year there was no new edition till 1767, which has since been followed by many others."
