Description

Poliziano (1454–1494) was a private tutor to the sons of Lorenzo de’ Medici before becoming professor of Greek and Latin at Florence. Although not a classical author, Poliziano was nonetheless admired by Aldus for the elegance of his writing, and this publication may have been intended to serve as a model of elegant Latin and Greek composition. The text includes a few passages that mark Aldus’s first attempts at Hebrew typography. Bound in contemporary German half pigskin over wooden boards.
