Abstract

Cicero, Letters to Atticus, to Brutus, to his brother Quintus, and the spurious Letter to Octavius. Ed. and pr. by Paulus Manutius (Paulo Manuzzi), Venice, 1544. These works of Cicero were renaissance rediscoveries, so this is a book that illustrates the ‘new learning’ of the period. Paulus was the son of the much more famous Aldus Manutius (1449-1515), who set himself to publish newly-available Greek classical authors in the original language. His enduring influence is demonstrated by the retention of his device and name ‘ALDUS’ on the title page, and the colophon which states that the volume was printed ‘APUD ALDI FILIOS’ (‘[printed] at the sons of Aldus’). An inscription several lines long has been erased from the verso of the title page. From the Library of Christ College; given by Rev. R.R. Davies in 1852. Cent College Rare PA 6297 .A5 1544.
