Creator

Lucan.

Title

[Pharsalia].

Publisher

[Lyon: Balthasar de Gabiano,

Date

ca. 1504.]

Description

In the Monitum of March 1503, Aldus warned that the genuine edition of his Lucan contained an introductory dedication to Marco Antonio Mauroceno, whereas the counterfeit did not. This copy, assuredly a counterfeit due to various typographical and setting differences, includes the dedication letter, and therefore must have been printed after the publication of the Monitum alerted the French printers to their oversight. Bound in green goatskin by Bauzonnet-Trautz for Paul Renouard, Parisian publisher and brother of the great Aldine bibliographer Antoine-Augustin Renouard.
