About this Item

Small folio (28.8 x 21 cm.), publisher's grey cloth, stamped in gilt and red on front cover, flat spine with beige paper label printed in black with red dingbat. Facsimiles in text. As new. One of 750 copies [of which 100 were specially bound, with an original leaf from Aristotle's Historia animalium, 1524; some copies appear to have been bound from sheets as well]. lxxxiv, 242 pp., (1 blank l., 1 l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Important reference work by the noted scholar-bookseller whose companion work, The Estiennes, appeared in 1982. This descriptive catalogue of the outstanding Colines collection built by the firm of E.K. Schreiber makes a significant contribution to sixteenth-century scholarship and the history of printing in France. The entries, arranged chronologically, include full collations and useful annotations which emphasize the contents of each book, its makers, its place in sixteenth-century intellectual history, and its position in the oeuvre of Colines. Preceding the catalogue is a valuable introduction (pp. xiii-lxxxiv, in French with full English translation) on the history of the Colines press by Jean Veyrin-Forrer. Two rare Simon de Colines publishers' catalogues (ca. 1545-1546) are reproduced in facsimile in an appendix (pp. 203-29). Handsomely printed, designed by W. Thomas Taylor.***.
