Abstract

Guillaume Budé (1468-1540), Commentarii Linguae Graecae. Pr. Josse Bade (Jodocus Badius Ascensius), Paris, 1529. The first edition of an important commentary on the Greek language by a famous French humanist scholar, printed by an equally famous printer. By 1530 it had been reprinted three times, a second edition appearing in 1548. The title page, which doubles as Bade’s printer’s device, incorporates a classic illustration of the early printing press at work. The man on the left holds a ball for applying ink to the type; the man on the right is setting the type in the ‘forme’ for another page. From the Library of Christ College. Uncatalogued.
