About this Item

Folio. 35 cm. ff. [22], 16, 323. Lacking final blank leaf. This copy does not contain the additional section printed a year later in 1531 (listed separately in Adams as L-1327), which included both the 5 missing books from the tenth decade, recently discovered by Simon Grynaus, and a chronology by Glareanus. Text is in Roman type with decorative woodcut initials. The title page contains a woodcut architectural border which surrounds Ascensius’s printer’s device depicting workers at a printing press. Some scholarly Latin marginalia is present, written in a careful early hand; signatures a-c, and signature p hold the heaviest annotations – including side glosses, micro notations between lines of text, and careful underlining of words and passages. Most pages throughout the book are free of notations. Tiny spots of worming are located on the first few leaves. Signatures a-f show a small area of worming - mostly between lines of text, but sometimes obscuring a couple of letters. Occasional minor worming can be found elsewhere – mostly marginal. The interior otherwise contains an occasional small edge tear or torn corner tip; a 10.7 cm tear at the bottom of leaf K1 is professionally sealed (and not very noticeable). Periodic spots of staining, soiling, light marginal damp staining etc. are present. Repairs on the front and rear fly-leaves are visible. The colophon reads: sub prelo Ascensiano ad VI Cal. Nouemb, 1530. Bound in later antique calf with blind tooled panels and decorative rolls. Binding shows rubbing and wear. Several spots of worming on the spine are carefully repaired; the outer joints near the head caps are professionally strengthened. Titus Livius Patavinus (64 or 59 b.c.e. – 17 c.e.) was a Roman historian who moved in high Roman society. His great historical work, which partially survives, records the history of Rome from mythical times down to the author’s own age. Uncommon edition. [Adams L-1326; Renouard, Badius Ascensius III, p. 14; Schweiger II, p. 528]. Bookseller Inventory # 000889
