Description

In the late 18th century the French collector and bookseller Charles Chardin (1748–ca. 1827) commissioned a number of pen facsimiles on vellum of rare Aldines that he had been unable to obtain. His 1824 sale included this volume, as well as copies figurées sur vélin of the 1495 Musaeus and the 1495 de Aetna. The work is attributed to the calligrapher F. F. Fyot. Bound in crimson goatskin by François Bozerian (dit le Jeune, 1765–1818), and later owned by Sir John Hayford Thorold of Syston Park (1734–1815).
