Creator

Manutius, Paulus.

Title

Antiquitatum Romanarum Pauli Manutii Liber de Legibus.

Publisher

Paris: Bernard Turrisan (Bernardo Torresani) for the Aldine Press,

Date

1557.

Description

Bernardo Torresani, the grandson of Andrea Torresani, printed in Paris “in Aldina bibliotheca” from 1554 through 1569. The details of his relations with the Venetian press of Paulus Manutius are unclear, but this publication of Paulus’s works on the Roman legal system, in the same year that the Venetian press published the text in folio, argues that there was some coordination between the two geographic locations. As shown, Torresani used the familiar dolphin and anchor device of the Aldine Press for his Parisian imprints.
