Musaeus, De Herone et Leandro, Orpheus, Argonautica, Hymni, De Lapidibus, in Greek.
?Original Venetian binding of polished calf over thin wooden boards, blind-filleted panels with gilt ornament; the edges later cropped and gilded.
Pr. at the Aldine Press by Andreas (Asolani), father-in-law of the Press’s famous founder Aldus, Venice, November 1517. Small painted initials on square grounds with gold tracery, rather like the ‘champe’ initials found in late medieval manuscripts.
At the head of the title page, in an early hand, ‘Moreau Med. Paris’. Inside the front cover is an old shelfmark A ii. 29, partly cancelled. Also an armorial plate: ‘From the Sunderland Library, Blenheim Palace, purchased Nov. 1882 by Bernard Quaritch, 15 Piccadilly, London.’ On the first flyleaf is ‘44’ and ‘Ex libris Mathaei Ritbomii Rhetorice Veterani anno 9 1685’. Bought by R. L. Dunbabin, first Professor of Classics at the University of Tasmania, 30 Jan. 1920 and presented by him to the University Library in 1940.
PA4250 .M5 1517.
