Lucretius, De Rerum Natura.

Disbound, lacking title page and A1.

Pr. Henricus Petri, Basel, August 1531.

Lucretius’ work was known as early as the ninth century, but then practically disappeared from view until a manuscript was discovered and copied by the humanist Poggio Bracciolini in 1417. His copy produced no progeny until the 1420s, after which the text became very popular in manuscript and print.

On the title page, 16th-cent., ‘James [mutil.]’. From the Library of Christ College; given by Rev. R. R. Davies in 1852.
