About this Item

APPIANUS. De Civilibus Romanoru bellis Historiarum libri quinque . Paris: Michaelis Vascosani, 1538. Fol. [36], 283, [1], [20], 41 p. Woodcut on title (repeated on second title) of a printing office in operation, woodcut initials. Old vellum. Tiny blank piece at bottom of title page neatly replaced, neat early repairs at foot of title and in fore-edges of last several leaves, browning of text. A nice copy. The Decembrio translation of the Roman history of Appianus of Alexandria, accompanied by a similar history by Velleius Paterculus. This edition is especially notable for its great printer's mark?a version of the "Praelum Ascensianum" of Josse Bade. In its original use by Bade this woodcut was the first representation of a printing office. Vascosan married into Bade's family and used this mark in a few books. BMC (French) p. 21; Adams A1345.
