Stephani Nigri chri[a]e quinq[ue].
Io. de Castelliono, 1521. The final chapter conveniently extracted from Stephani Nigri Elegantissime รจ Graeco authorum subditorum translationes, Negri's didactic Latin translations of works by famous Greek authors. Negri (Stephanus Niger, d. ca. 1540) was a professor of Greek in that city. The selected text is composed of five chriae, or themes for rhetorical exercises, followed by three introductory lectures on Homer, Pindar, and Livy that Negri delivered at Milan "In publico Gymnasio," at school. Printed in Latin and Greek, in roman and italic, this has a (sectional) title-page with its text framed in a wide ornamental border of acanthus leaves and flowers. In text are a number of ornate woodcut initials in white against a white-floriated background. Evidence of readership: Early ink annotations in a few margins (partially cut off at the time of rebinding).
