Cornazano de re militaria, per Hieronymo Soncino novamente impresso.
Orthona: Hieronymo Soncino, 1518. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Antonio Cornazzano was a 15th-century Italian writer known for his poetry and biographical works. However, his most important works were government and political treatises including one of the art of military and war. 'De Re Militaria', first written in 1476, was a piece of prose covering Greek and Roman military conquests and politicians - Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Brutus, Spartan wars, and accounts from Ptolemy. This incredibly rare and valuable work was published by the Soncino family - a Jewish family of printers living near Milan. While other European printers such as Aldine are more remembered today, Soncino is responsible for setting the print types that Aldus employed!
