Description

In addition to following through on planned publications left undone at the death of Aldus, his heirs reprinted some of the more popular titles from the earlier years, including this octavo reprint of one of the first imprints of the Aldine Press (see the original printing in the first case of this exhibition). Yet even in this reprint the scholarly contribtion continues, as it includes the editio princeps of the short poem De Lapidibus.
