Calepino, an Augustinian monk, “devoted some thirty years to composing his dictionary, which focused on classical Latin usage and on encyclopedic information and literary examples from ancient culture. In the years after his death many, mostly anonymous editors made modifications, corrections, and especially additions, often borrowing from other dictionaries . . . In the early modern period the Calepino not only became the most widely recognized brand of dictionary, still active in the early twentieth century, but it also came to stand for the entire dictionary genre . . .

SOPHOCLES
Venice: Aldus Manutius, August, 1502. Editio princeps of the seven surviving complete plays of Sophocles, the greatest of the Greek tragedians. This volume contains the first printing of Oedipus Rex, generally considered the greatest Greek tragedy. This edition served as the fundamental text for more than three hundred years. Sophocles (497-406 BC) was not only a playwright, but also a leading citizen of Athens during the greatest period of its history. This period brought the military supremacy of Athens after the defeat of Persia in 478 as well as the building of the Parthenon, the great Temple of Athena, and the stone theater of Dionysus. Sophocles was a general with Pericles during the revolt of Samosin in 441, a state supervisor of tribute from the Athenian empire, and finally one of the ten (probouloi) commissioners over the Council of Five Hundred of the oligarchy after the coup of 411. Sophocles wrote more than 120 plays; those in this volume probably owe their survival to their selection for use as an educational textbook. These seven plays contain some of the most powerful and timeless dramas ever written, including Oedipus Rex, a work in which “the poet attains the supreme height of dramatic concentration and tragic intensity” (Lewis Campbell). This play, Oedipus Rex, part of the Theban trilogy, is generally considered the greatest of the Greek tragedies. A LANDMARK IN THE HISTORY OF PRINTING. This book, printed in Venice by Aldus Manutius, is the first Greek book issued in the Aldine portable format and the first classical text printed in the smallest and finest … [Click Below for Full Description]

A collective volume with texts in Arabic on Arabic manuscript paper (for ff. 43-45 and from f. 73 onwards European paper is used). It was copied by Ahmad b. 'Uthman al-Arzan al-Rumi in the city of Qustantiniyya (Istanbul) in one of the eight madrasas (colophon in a later hand on f. 78a). - 1) ff. 1v-13v. Fragment without beginning or end, and possibly misbound, of a gloss on logic (Qala-aqulu structure). Possibly this is the commentary by Qutb al-Din al-Razi al-Tahtani (d. 766/1364) on al-Risala al-Shamsiyya fi al-Quawa 'id al-Maniqiyya, by Nagm al-Din 'Ali b.

Gloss on logic (Qala-aqulu structure), apparently by al-Sayyid al-Sharif, whose name is mentioned variously. This is the gloss by al-Sayyid al-Sharif al-Gurgani (d. 816/1413), GAL G II, 216, on the commentary by Muhammad b.

Il Bulino. New. Hardcover. <p>It is unanimously regarded as the most beautiful among Renaissance geographical maps and it bears witness to the discovery of America. It was manufactured and illuminated in Portugal in 1502, right after Columbus’ and Vespucci’s voyages. It is drawn on six sheets of vellum joined together to make up a single 105 × 220 cm sheet. It was probably commissioned by ambassador Alberto Cantino to supply the Duke of Ferrara with documents showing the new dimensions of the world and the importance of the latest geographical discoveries. </p><p>The planisphere shows the coasts of the Caribbean and Brazil (it is the most ancient representation of the New World in Italy) , separated by the ‘raya’, the line that divided Portuguese colonies from the Spanish ones. Even though it is one of the first maps that represent the world without applying the Ptolemaic tradition, Cantino’s Map is still influenced by it, with reference to some stereotypes to which even after Columbus’ discoveries is still entrusted, such as the Tower of Babel, the realm of Prester John or Eden. In spite of the definition charta del navicare, that is to say a map used for sailing, it is for sure a planisphere realized for court geography, to be studied and contemplated. </p><p>Facsimile editionThis new edition of the Map, promoted by the Italian Ministry of Culture and presented by Laura Federzioni and Marco Cattini, is a joint-publication Il Bulino-Biblioteca Estense Universitaria.

Sophocles
[Venetiis: in Aldi Romani Academia mense, 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 earliest printing of the first signature , 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.

Dante Alighieri:
[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.

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& … [Click Below for Full Description]

PLINIUS SECUNDUS Gaius Caecilius. Letters of Pliny the Younger (61-112 AD)
Bologna, Benedictus Hectoris, 19 October 1498 [misdated: 1502]. 4to. [140] leaves. Roman letter interspersed with occasional quotations in Greek. 27 lines. Printer's mark at end of book IX, and at end. 18th century vellum; rebacked. A distinguished redaction of the celebrated letters of Pliny the Younger (c.6I-c.112 AD) by the noted Renaissance scholar Filippo Beroaldo (1453-1505). The nine books of letters on a variety of subjects composed in the style of short essays, are a major source for our knowledge of the times. The famous letter 16 (book 6), addressed to his friend Tacitus, describes the eruption of Vesuvius on 24 August AD 79 during which the author's uncle, Pliny the Elder, died. Letter 59 (book 10) to the Emperor Trajan on the treatment of the Christians, is considered the earliest external account of Christian worship, and the fullest statement of the reasons for the execution of Christians; Trajan expresses his approval in his reply in the following letter (60). The volume concludes with the panegyric to Trajan, delivered when Pliny took office as consul for the year 100, in which the emperor is favourably compared to the tyrannical Domitian who preceded him. Traces of marginal waterstaining throughout, title margin neatly repaired without loss, otherwise a clean copy with occasional manuscript notes in Latin penned into blank margins in several neat humanist hands.

[Onomasticon] Pollucis vocabularii index in latinum tralatus, ut vel graece nescientibus nota sint . . . Folio. [104]ff. Venice: apud Aldum, April 1502. 296 x 201 mm. 18th or early 19th cent. gilt-ruled calf, a little rubbed, rebacked preserving original gilt spine. Fine copy.</p><p>Editio princeps. Pollux, a Greek grammarian and sophist from Alexandria, was appointed professor of rhetoric at the Academy in Athens by the Roman Emperor Commodus (son of Marcus Aurelius). According to Philostratus's Lives of the Sophists, Pollux was given this post on account of his melodious voice. Pollux was the author of numerous rhetorical works, of which only a few titles survive, and the Onomasticon, a thesaurus of Attic Greek synonyms and phrases arranged thematically in ten books. "It supplies in passing much rare and valuable information on many points of classical antiquity- objects in daily life, the theater, politics- and quotes numerous fragments of lost works. Pollux was probably the person satirized by Lucian as a worthless and ignorant person who gains a reputation as an orator by sheer effrontery, and pilloried in his Lexiphanes, a satire upon the affectation of obscure and obsolete words" (Encyclopaedia Britannica [1999]). The editio princeps of Pollux's Onomasticon, issued by Aldus Manutius in 1502, made the work widely available to Renaissance scholars and antiquaries, and anatomists of the period drew on the Onomasticon for obscure Greek words to describe part … [Click Below for Full Description]
