Theocritus, Bucolica, followed by commentary, in Greek.
Two vols. as one, pr. ‘apud Salamandram’ on the title pages, at the end of each vol.
‘in aedibus Bartholomai de Zanettis, à Casterzago’, Venice, 1539.
Another innovation of the printed book, from as early as the 1470s, was the printer’s device, of which perhaps the most famous is the anchor & dolphin of Aldus Manutius. This dramatic example, first used in this book, soon became popular among a group of mutually acquainted Venetian printers.
Inside the front cover is the armorial bookplate of Frederic North, fifth earl of Guildford (1766-1827). Sales of his books took place at intervals between 1828 and 1835. From the Library of Christ College.
