The name of Vrancic (1571-1616) appears in some variations: Faust Vrančić (serbo-croatian), Faustus Verancsics (hungarian), Fausto Veranzio, Faustus Verantius.

In honour of Vrančić and his dictionary the Croation Post in 1995, 400 years after the first edition, published a stamp showing the title-page  of the 1595 edition. I have added one to the book.
