About this Item

Vettori (1499?1585) was an outstanding scholar with a facile pen and a waiting audience. Sandys characterizes him as "certainly the foremost representative of classical scholarship in [Italy] during the sixteenth century." He also lauds Vettori for his great scholarship of Greek." Like the first, this second edition of Vettori's criticism of Cicero is in Latin with quotations and examples in Greek. It is self-described on the title-page as "quae corrupta, mutila, & praeposter? sita admiserat prima editio, haec 2. sedul? castigauit, su?que loco restituit." The volume begins with the printer's device on the title-page bearing the motto "Et fugit interea fugit irreparabile tempus," and prints the text in a clear roman type accented with historiated and portrait woodcut initials and woodcut head-pieces. A handsome production. Provenance: 17th-century near-calligraphic ownership inscriptions on title-page of the Jesuit College at Tudela, Spain; and of G.M. Desmarsall. 4to. [6] ff., 486 pp., [31] ff. Adams V687; Sandys, II, 135; Pfeiffer p. 136; Bolgar, The Classical heritage, p. 378. Recent deep walnut full calf old style, by Grace Bindings (signed in blind at inner area of rear cover, lower turn-in): Round spine with raised bands accented in gilt and with blind-tooled devices in compartments; oxblood leather label, gilt-lettered; fillets extending onto covers from each band to terminate in trefoils and covers framed in blind double fillets. Lacks one internal blank leaf (only). All edges marbled. A very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 14594
