[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.

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.

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& … [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. BMC VI 844; Goff P-810; HC*13115; Polain (B) 3206; Proctor 6639. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Pollux, Julius
Venice: Aldus Manutius, 1502. First edition. <p>Pollux, Julius [Poludeukes, Ioulios] (fl. 2nd cent. A.D.). [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]
