Divina revelatio Erythre[ae] Sibyll[ae] cum com[m]entariis in qua a bello Troiano: uiq[ue] addiem iudicii futura predixit.
(Siena, Simeone Nardi, 1508). - 4to. (48) pp. With title woodcut within four-part borders (repeated in the text). Half vellum (c. 1900) with marbled covers. Very rare first Latin edition (the second altogether), edited by the Spanish Dominican Luis de Tovar. Christian authors since late antiquity have regarded the Sibyls as prophetesses. The present auguries are based on Greek sources and were known to St Augustine. Widely copied in manuscripts since the 12th century, the Greek text was first printed in Aldus's 1495 Theocritus edition. - Trimmed closely at bottom (slight loss to text, especially near the end), also touching lower part of title border and imprint. Small repairs to first 2 ff., otherwise clean. Rare in libraries; no copy in America. Panzer VIII, 293, 7. Sander 6969. Mortimer 327. BM-STC Italian 625 (fragment). Jöcher IV, 1279. OCLC 30934712. Not in Adams, Essling, Hoffmann, Murray, Proctor/Isaac. [Attributes: First Edition]
