At once in the collection of a religious fraternity with their emblem gilt-stamped to front cover "Ecce quam bonum et quam iucundum habitare fratres in unum"(Latin, from Psalm 133) and dated 1604. Nizzoliís Latin dictionary of 1544, published in response to Estienneís edition. A rare early edition of this great monument of Renaissance humanist scholarship first published in 1535. Mario Nizzoli, or Marius Nizolius as he was known in Latin, was a professor at the University of Parma and an expert Latin lexicographer. In 1520, he published his chief work, the Thesaurus Ciceronianus, which had first appeared as Observationes in Ciceronem in 1535, documenting approximately 20,000 words. Nizzoli dared to publish an augmented version of Robert Estienneís Linguae latinae thesaurus in Venice in 1550-51 and inspection of this edition in press enraged Robert, who recognized some of the added words as ones which he carefully identified as to be omitted from his dictionary and counterfeit or post-classical. The work also includes a biographical note to Italian cardinal Giovanni Francesco Gambara (1533-1587). Bookseller Inventory # D6765
