CURTIUS RUFUS, Quintus
Venice: Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari, 1559. Second printing, the Colophon dated 1558. Giolito's fine large engraved device on the title, illustrating a phoenix rising from a brazier bearing the initials G.G.F., surmounted by a banner reading "de la mia morte eterna vita i vivo"and flanked by putti above and by two winged lions below. His alternate device of the phoenix rising from the flames to the sun, again with the initials on the brazier but with the motto "Semper Eadem" appears on the colophon, which is dated 1558. Numerous large engraved historiated initials on mythological themes, smaller engraved initials throughout the preliminaries, many large grotesque typographical ornaments. Contemporary vellum. Early ownership "Franco M.a Benincasa," partly overwritten in a later hand, which has added "Libro rarissimo." This translation of the biography of Alexander the Great by Tommaso Porcacchi is the first based on a printed Latin text, believed to be that of the Basel edition of 1545, and contains the work of the first "auctor supplementarum," Christopher Bruno. His letter to the reader discusses the errors that had been introduced into the numerous editions since the first Italian translation of the history of Alexander in 1478, as well as the rationale of his reduction of the number of books from twelve to ten. Dedicated to Federigo Gonzago, this is one of the primary sources on the life of the King of Macedonia. Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari came to Venice with his father in 1524, and was active as a printer and publisher there from 1536 to 1579, both alone and … [Click Below for Full Description]
