Creator

Aristotle.

Title

Problematum Aristotelis.

Publisher

[Lyon: Balthasar de Gabiano,

Date

ca. 1506].

Description

This Lyonese imprint is not strictly a counterfeit, but a piracy of the translation by Theodorus Gaza printed in the Aldine folio edition of 1504, though it also mimics the Aldine octavo format and typography. Bound in contemporary calf by the Cambridge binder Nicholas Spierinck (ca. 1470–1545/6), incorporating his monogram (ns) in the tooling, and with his customary use of scrap manuscript material in the binding.
