      Venice: Aldus Manutius, Aug, 1502. Aldine octavo (153 × 94 mm). Eighteenth-century English red morocco, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands, green morocco label, sides ruled in gilt with a double fillet, gilt devices at corners, turns-in gilt with a floral roll, comb-marbled endpapers, gilt edges. In a custom morocco-backed folding case. Types 1:80 italic, 4:79 Greek, cut by Francesco Griffo. General title, Latin dedication to Janus Lascaris, epigrams of Simonides, Erucius and Dioscorides the Alexandrian from the Anthology, 6 divisional titles, woodcut dolphin and anchor device (Fletcher no. 2) on verso of last leaf. Inscriptions on the first binder's blank: "H. Girdlestone from Francis Turner Inner Temple 1808" and "H. Girdlestone to John Farnham Messenger 1 January 1864". Binding rubbed, joints cracked at ends; title slightly stained and with 2 small wormholes not affecting text, small wormhole through last 14 leaves, a very few small marginal stains, a very good copy. Editio princeps. One of the most important of Aldus's Greek editions both textually and typographically, this remained the best available edition of Sophocles' text until the 19th century. The scholia promised in the title were not finally included, as explained in Aldus's prefatory letter; Lascaris published them in 1518, at the Medicean press at Rome. The Sophocles was the first Greek book issued in Aldus's portable format, and the first classical text printed in Francesco Griffo's fourth type, the smallest and most delicate of the Aldine Greek types, modelled on Aldus's own Greek hand. This was the first Aldine edition to mention in the colophon Aldus's Greek Neakadamia, which combined a dining club with a serious educational movement concerned with the revival of classical culture. Aldus's preface to Lascaris describes a fire-lit meeting of the academy, where Greek alone was spoken.

      [Venetiis: in Aldi Romani Academia mense Augusto 1502].. [196] leaves. Octavo. Full 19th century straight grain red morocco, elaborately gilt extra, a.e.g. Greek letter. Aldine anchor on verso of terminal leaf. Bookplate of Henry Labouchere, 1st Baron Taunton (1798- 1869). Some early and interesting manuscript annotations and highlighting in red ink, a few other annotations faded and occasionally a bit smeared, similar annotations eradicated from title, minute single wormhole in foremargins of final half of text block (in a few instances showing signs of early careful in- fill), otherwise a very good copy, neatly bound. First edition in book form of the Greek text of seven of the Tragedies of Sophocles, edited by Marcus Musurus with a dedication to Jan Lascaris. This was the first of the classical Greek texts published by Aldus Manutius in this portable form, and it remained the most readily available source for study of Sophocles's text until the 19th century, when superior manuscripts became the object of scholarly study. Like the copies noted by Brunet and regarded as the earlier printing, the verso of the four-line title is blank, as is the facing recto. A high-water mark in the history of typography, classical texts and drama. ADAMS S1438. RENOUARD 34:6. BM (ITALIAN), p.634. BRUNET V:445-6.

      [Venetiis: in Aedib Aldi, August 1502].. [252] leaves. a-z8, A-G8, H4. Small octavo. Full green French morocco, raised bands, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Set in Italic. Aldine anchor on colophon. One raised band nicked, careful sympathetic restoration of upper joint, light scattered foxing, faint old manuscript foliation of leaves, but a very good copy. Cloth slipcase and chemise. First Aldine edition, and the first edition of Dante in octavo format, based on a manuscript sent to Aldus by the Venetian humanist, Pietro Bembo. The edition is also notable for historians of typography as it marks the first utilization of the Aldine Anchor as Aldus's signature device -- although it does not appear in all copies, among them the earliest. The edition was such a success that it was soon counterfeited in such a faithful manner that close scrutiny of the final collation is necessary to distinguish the editions. With this edition, "it was as if the poem had never been printed before: the 15th-century vulgate was swept aside. Bembo's text was to become the basis for every subsequent edition of the Divine Comedy until the late 19th century" - Renaissance Dante in Print (1472 - 1629). Online catalogue of Notre Dame, Newberry Library, and Univ. of Chicago collaborative exhibition. RENOUARD 34:5. GOLDSMID 43. ADAMS D82-3. BMC (ITALIAN), P. 209. BRUNET II:500.
