1515 Tibullus, Catullus, & Propertius ALDINE Roman Poetry ROME Aldus Extremely Rare 2nd Aldus ed / compare @$6,500+ Aldine Press was the printing office started by Aldus Manutius in 1494 in Venice, from which were issued the celebrated Aldine editions of the classics (Latin and Greek masterpieces plus a few more modern works). The Aldine Press is famous in the history of typography, among other things, for the introduction of italics. The press was the first to issue printed books in the small octavo size, similar to that of a modern paperback, and like that intended for portability and ease of reading. The press issued 127 editions during the lifetime of Aldus. The press was continued after Aldus’s death in 1515 by his wife and her father until his son Paolo (1512–1574) took over. His grandson Aldo then ran the firm until his death in 1597. Due to the firm’s commercial success many pirated editions were also produced in Lyons and elsewhere. Today, antique books printed by the Aldine Press in Venice are referred to as Aldines - I find only one example of this extremely rare 2nd Aldine edition for sale elsewhere at $6,500 Main author: Gaius Valerius Catullus; Sextus Propertius; Tibullus.; Hieronymus Avancius; Aldo Manuzio Title: Catullus.
