Opera no[n] parva accuratio[n]e & diligentia rece[n]ter i[m][pressa.
Paris: impensis Francisci Regnault & Iohannis Petit 1519 - title-page printed in red and black within a woodcut border, variably browned and foxed throughout, a few leaves with old repairs to blank corners (and one in blank area of title-page verso), some corrections and marginal notes in several early hands, early ownership inscription to title-page, ff. [i], viii, [1], ix-cxciiii, cx, [87], folio, eighteenth-century Italian vellum boards, red and green morocco lettering-pieces to spine, these just slightly worn at edges, good A reprint of the 1513-14 printing (also Regnault & Petit) of this Latin translation of Josephus’s works, using the version by Tyrannius Rufinus as edited by Robert Goullet (1480-1560). Schreckenberg describes it as an incorrect edition, and an early owner seems to have agreed - beneath the final colophon, which concludes ‘non sine multa lucubratione ingentique labore compilavit’ (‘compiled with much study and great toil’), he has added ‘sed non exacta fide et bona distributione’ (‘but without exact faith and good distribution’). A number of pages also include small corrections and sometimes one or two marginal notes, seemingly in several hands, including the alteration of ‘biblia’ to ‘bibliis’ in every headline of one section. (Schreckenberg p. 6)
