Item Description: Venice, Apud Aldum, 1498 EDITIO PRINCEPS. Folio. 346 unnumbered leaves, lacking two blanks. Text in Aldus' large Greek type 146, 41 lines of scholia surrounding in smaller (type114), Aldus' preface in Roman. Woodcut strap-work initials in two sizes and headpieces. Early Greek marginalia in brown ink mostly to first quarter of volume. Title page very slightly soiled and strengthened at gutter, two leaves slightly browned (probably damp at printing), couple of minor marginal tears, last leaf with small old marginal repairs, strengthened at gutter, slightly soiled on verso. A very good copy, crisp, clean and well margined in C17 vellum over boards C18 mottling, gilt red morocco labels and gilt thistle motif on spine, C19 ms. bibl. notes on front pastedown, Walter Hirst's charming bookplate and Sir Thomas Philip's pencilled shelf mark beneath, earlier ink lettering (press mark?) on rear pastedown, Quaritch pencil note beneath. A very handsome copy of the beautiful first printed edition of Aristophanes comprising the first nine plays (10 & 11 were not published till 1525) and one of the chef d'oeuvres of Aldus' early Greek press. The editor was Marcus Musurus, the celebrated Greek humanist, who also contributed an excellent preface on the reasons for studying Greek and the stylistic beauty of Aristophanes. Aldus founded his career on the publication of Greek texts - the first printer to do so - with this type designed and cast on new principles which he perfected over a period of five years. To his scholarly care we owe more of the editiones principes of the major Greek classics than to any other printer and the Aristophanes, texturally and artistically, was one of his finest achievements. Aristophanes was the greatest of the Athenian comic dramatists and one of her greatest poets. For richness and fertility of imagination probably only Shakespeare is comparable and Aristophanes' direct influence on English literature was considerable; the comedies of Jonson, Middleton and Fielding derive from him. Apart from constituting one of the surviving glories of hellenic culture Aristophanes' comedies are an invaluable source for its social history. His surviving plays - out of a probable forty or fifty - provide us with an accurate if satirical commentary on the political, religious, sexual, economical and domestic life of Athens over a period of thirty six years. His changes in style and content match the concurrent constitutional and social changes in the State itself. The plays' themes are invariably contemporary, a mocking mirror to the condition of the city. This edition has the benefit of the scholia of Thomas Magister, John Tzetzes and Demetrius Triclinus themselves incorporating much of the more ancient commentaries of Appolonius, Callimaches, Didymus and others, which were superseded in later editions by much newer but also much inferior work."Premire et belle Ždition .

Item Description: New York Limited Editions Club 1934, 1934. 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

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".

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

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).

Item Description: Librairie Auguste Bl, Paris, 1911. In-4, broché, couverture imprimée.Très beau livre illustré par un peintre qui fut un précurseur de l'art moderne: François Kupka, le premier peut-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". Un des quelques exemplaires sur japon impérial avec le texte en grec, comportant les gravures en deux états: monochrome avec remarques et avec la lettre. Bookseller Inventory # 33453
