Item Description: Limited Editions Club, New York, 1934. Picasso, Pablo (illustrator). Quarto. 117pp. One of 1,500 copies on French Rives and signed by Picasso. Illustrated with six original etchings in black, one of which is signed in the plate and dated in reverse, and thirty lithographs printed in sanguine after drawings. This is the only American publication with original Picasso etchings, which are "among his most important in the Classical style," according to The Artist and the Book. However experimental and avant-garde he may have been throughout his life, the Lysistrata marks a clear retrogression to the artist's earlier classicist mode, an appropriate follow-up to his acclaimed Les Métamorphoses and fitting for the classical nature of this book. The Limited Editions Club printed the volume at their own printing shop in Westport, Connecticut. The book was designed by the Club's publisher, George Macy, who had eagerly anticipated the book's production and praised Picasso's hand as "sure and confident," noting that the beauty of the etchings lay in their simplicity. A fine, bright copy in boards covered with patterned paper in three colors from drawings by Picasso. Wrapped in the original glassine, which is still crisp overall, save for slight edgewear. Housed in a chemise of blue boards and patterned paper, which is sunned to the spine, and the original slipcase, which shows some wear to the corners and has a slight split starting to one corner. (The Artist and The Book 226; Cramer 24; LEC 57). Bookseller Inventory # 25141

QUINTO KALENDAS FEBRUARII MDXV (FIRENZE, GIUNTA, 28 GENNAIO 1515-16), 1515. in cartoncino ottocentesco. Book Condition: Buone. Legatura in cartoncino rosso dei primi dell'Ottocento con titolo breve manoscritto su etichetta e filetti in oro al dorso. Nota di possesso manoscritta alla prima carta bianca di guardia. 55 carte non numerate su 56 (manca la penultima carta, bianca); alla prima carta con il titolo, lieve impronta lasciata da una probabile sovrapposizione con un altro foglio con marca tipografica; Impresa giuntina al verso dell'ultima carta. Alla seconda carta recto, dedica di Bernardo Giunta a Francesco Accolti, Vescovo di Ancona e datata 10 gennaio 1515. Testo greco in corsivo. Prima edizione delle Tesmophoriazusae  e di Lysistrata, da poco ritrovate dal Guinta in un manoscritto proveniente da Urbino. Nello stesso anno, Bernardo Giunta aveva pubblicato le 9 commedie già pibblicate da Manuzio nel 1498. Le due commmedie, rappresentate nel 411 a.C. si fondano entrambe sull'invenzione comica di un complotto di donne, una riprende una piacevole satira tragica di Euripide e l'altra riprende il tema della pace,  molto caro ad Aristophanes. L'opera è certamente una delle più importanti edizioni di Giunta, rarissima a trovarsi. Renouard e Bandini descrivono l'opera in 54 carte, in realtà uscì in 56, di cui la 55 bianca, anche qui mancante. Cfr. Dibdin, "These editions are of some rarity and value: the edition of 1515, wich presents us with better readings than Aldu's was published.with the nine comedies only: but in the same year, and with the same types, the remaining two comedies were first given to the world in a separate volume, so that purchasing the first edition of Junta it will be necessary to examine whether it contain the eleven comedies". Bell'esemplare, salvo modeste fioriture diffuse, buoni i margini. 0. Bookseller Inventory # 1414

In-4, demi-maroquin rouge à coins, plats de papier marbré, dos à nerfs orné de jeux de filets dorés; doublures et gardes de papier peigne, tête dorée, non rogné, couverture imprimée (Pagnant).Très beau livre illustré par un peintre qui fut un précurseur de l'Art moderne: François Kupka, le premier pet-être, exprima le charme léger de la Lysistratè. Artiste aimant farouchement tout ce qui magnifie la vie, il prit, à imager ces pages aux saveurs voluptueuses, la même joie qu'il eut jadis à tracer sur son cuivre la sauvage horreur des crimes d'Oreste et les visages implacables des "Erinnyes" (Lucien Dhuys). L'illustration comprend 20 eaux-fortes originales en couleurs par François Kupka, dont un frontispice et 19 vignettes ainsi que 13 culs-de-lampe gravés sur bois, dont un répété sur la couverture. Ce livre a fait l'objet de deux tirages: l'un avec le texte traduit en français par Lucien Dhuys imprimé à 361 exemplaires, l'autre tiré à part à petit nombre avec le texte en grec et les mêmes gravures que dans l'édition française, sauf pour trois masques qui ont été remplacés par des sujets plus "rudes".

Item Description: Svmptibvs Caldorianæ societatis, Avreliæ Allobrogvm [Geneva], 1607. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Folio (335 x 215mm). [36], 916pp., [27 of index]. Large emblematic printer’s device on title page depicting Fame amid motto "Per Orben virtute perpetua que gloria comparator," head- and tail-pieces, initials. Greek and Latin text in parallel columns. Greek title precedes Latin title. Contemporary limp vellum wrappers, (lightly foxed, otherwise clean and bright; lacking ties). First Edition. Aristophanes, was a prolific and acclaimed comic playwright in ancient Greece. A mere eleven of his fifty-four plays survive virtually complete. These comprise of "Acharnians," "Knights," "Wasps," "Peace," "Clouds," "Birds," "Lysistrata," "Frogs," "Women in Assembly," "Women at Festival," and "Plutus." These, together with fragments of some of his other plays, are published in this volume in Greek and Latin parallel texts. They provide a real example of a genre of comic drama known as "Old Comedy," and they are in fact used to define the genre. Notably, Aristophanes employed a frequent writing device; arranging the syntax so that the final word in a line comes as a comic climax. Aristophanes, also known as the "Father of Comedy" and the "Prince of Ancient Comedy," is said to recreate the life of ancient Athens more convincingly than any other author. The dual editors of this volume were known to work exclusively in classics. The more esteemed Aemilius Portus, the son of Francis Portus, had been instructed by his father in ancient languages and literature. After the death of his father, Portus left Geneva and in that same year (1581) became professor of Greek at the Academy of Lausanne. In 1592, he was invited to become chair of Greek Literature in the University of Heidelberg where he remained until his death in 1610. Interestingly, Portus included his father’s name on the title page of this volume, suggesting he had contributed to the work at some point during his lifetime. Very fine large folio compiling the works of one of the greatest comic dramatists in world literature. Ebert 1089. Bookseller Inventory # D2477

Original gilt stamped ornaments on spine in 8 compartments with raised bands are nicely preserved; spine label gilt stamped. Newer leather corners. Scuffing and wear to original leather. Very little spotting to pages. Overall, a very sound copy with clean internals and wide margins. Dibdin: 'This excellent edition, emphatically called 'Editio optima,' contains for the first time, some new Scholia on the 'Lysistrata;' some notes of Isaac Casaubon on the 'Equites;' and of Spanheim and Bentley on a few other plays. [. . .] The animadversions and commentaries of many learned men adorn this edition, . . . .' (p. 299-300). Dibdin also seems to be quite taken with the life and work of Kuster.

Item Description: Venice: Appresso Vicenzo Vaugris, 1545. FIRST EDITION, some light foxing and a few tiny dampmarks to early leaves, ff. 304, 8vo, eighteenth-century vellum boards, spine lettered in gilt within a yellow dyed compartment, marbled endpapers, a little bit soiled, bookplate of Bernardine Murphy, very good. The first edition of Aristophanes in Italian, and in fact the first full translation into any modern language - previous printings had only been in Greek and the Latin translation, including the first complete set of Latin translations by Andreas Divus in 1538. Due to the difficulty of Aristophanes' language, scholarship proceeded slowly and this translation was an important resource along with the editions of the major scholars - Richard Porson owned a copy along with Divus's translation and the Greek texts of Gelen and Scaliger. 'What is really striking is that all eleven Aristophanic comedies were translated into Italian as early as 1545 by two members of the Rositini family, Bartolomeo and Pietro. this can be explained in light of the influence on the Italian Renaissance humanists of the Aristotelian canon (i.e. Aristophanes was seen as the canonical example of ancient Greek comedy). The humanists were apparently bent on discovering the Aristophanic 'genius' for themselves and on making it accessible to the reading public. Surely, the intellectual, cultural, and socio-economical climate of Renaissance Italy, (and especially Venice) was ripe enough for the emergence of such a stellar achievement in translation' (Giannopoulou in Hall & Wrigley's 'Aristophanes in Performance', p. 310).
