About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Cornucopiae Latinae linguae, hoc est ...

Publisher: J. Walder, Basel

Publication Date: 1536

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good


Contemporary blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, 4 raised bands, 2 original clasps; thick folio; collates complete, pp. [6], 68 leaves (fol. 68 blank), 1514 (not "1587") columns, 14 leaves. Printer's device on title-page and last page. With numerous standard ornamental initials in the text. The type is a rather small, beautifully designed italic -- ultimately based on the Aldine, developed in Cologne and Basel in the 1530s. Boards rubbed; spine tips and corners chipped; but nice and sturdy, easily refurbished. First leaves, including title, somewhat worn and with wormholes; last two leaves somewhat worn and with light dampstains; manuscript entry on title-p., in German, "Ex libris Christiani (?) Rroschi. 1721." Other than that, internally crisp and clean. Perotti's most original work offers detailed discussions of the etymology, formation, and derivatives of almost every word in Book I of Martial. It includes his essay on Pliny, followed by the objections of Corn. Vitellius, and works on language by Terentius Varro, Festus, and Nonius. In order to understand how one could possibly write more than a thousand columns about a single book of epigrams, one has but to read what it was like ot Guarino's pupil, in A. Grafton and L. Jardine, "From Humanism to the Humanities" (Harvard UP, 1986, especially chapter 1). Bookseller Inventory # D6146
