Athanasii Episcopi Alexandrini sanctissima, eloquentissmaque opera ... que omnia olimia[m] latina facta Christophoro Porsena, Ambrosio Monacho, Angelo Politiano, interpretibus, una cum doctissima Erasmi Roterodani ad pium lectorem paraclesi. [bound with another work as below].
Parisiis: Joanne Paruo [i.e., Jean Petit] Folio extra. [6], 255, [66] ff.. [1519] [also bound in]: Basil, Saint, Bishop of Caesarea. Basilii Magni Caesariensium in Cappadocia Antistitis sanctissimi opera plane diuina, variis e locis sedulo collecta: & accuratio[n]e ac impe[n]sis Iodici Badii Asce?sii recognita & coimpressa, quorum index proxima pandetur charta. [Paris: Venundantur eidem Ascensio [i.e., Badius Ascensius, 1520]. Folio extra. [10], 178 ff. Two editions of Church Fathers from two scholar/printer presses. St. Athanasius's text was translated into Latin by three noted Renaissance scholars, edited by Nicholas Beraldus, and has the added prestige of apparatus by Erasmus. The title-page is printed with a four-piece woodcut border, with the title in red and black, and bears the famous Petit printer's device. => The text enjoys handsome typography, side- and shouldernotes, and large woodcut initials. The works of St. Basil is from Badius Ascensius's press and he acted as the editor, the translators having been Johannes Argyropoulos, Georgius Trapezuntius, and others. The title-page uses the same four-part woodcut title-page border as found on the St. Athanasius, bound in at the front, which makes much sense given the familial relationship between Ascensius and Petit. Alum-tawed pigskin, elaborately tooled in blind over wooden boards with metal and leather clasps; binding dust-soiled with one clasp perished, head pulled, one corner tip broken off, small hole in leather on rear board. Inside, some early marginalia and underlining in red; narrow arc of old, light waterstaining to fore-edges of one part. Pages generally very clean.
