Apollonius of Rhodes, Argonautica, in Greek.
Pr. at the Aldine Press by Andreas (Asolani), father-in-law of Aldus Manutius, Venice, April 1521.
Noteworthy features include the neat hand of an early annotator that differs little from the text font. The book’s format shows both forward- and backward-looking features: for example, on the one hand a scholarly apparatus at the end of the text, and on the other spaces reserved for coloured initials to be added by hand.
Acquired by R. L. Dunbabin, first Professor of Classics at the University of Tasmania, 17 May 1918; given by him to the University Library in 1940.
Cent Rare PA 3872 .A1 1521.
