Description

Antonius Manutius (1511–1559), an older brother of Paulus Manutius, briefly operated a branch of the Aldine Press in Bologna. Documentary evidence reveals that Antonio left Venice about 1555 to pursue the establishment of a branch of the family business in Bologna. The effort was unsuccessful, as only six titles with an Aldine Bolognese imprint exist, and there is some evidence that even these six titles were actually printed in Venice, but with a Bolognese imprint in an effort to curry favor with the local elites. The Sons of Aldus device is partially a mirror variant of the version used in Venice.
