Venice: The Heirs of Aldus Manutius and Andrea Torresani,
When the press re-opened in 1533 under the control of Paulus Manutius, revised editions of earlier titles formed part of the publishing program. This collection of Valerius Maximus’s Memorable Deeds and Sayings, published by Aldus in 1501 and 1514, was intended to supply historical anecdotes for aspiring writers and speakers. Bound in an entrelac (strapwork) style binding, and previously owned by Richard Heber (1773–1833), one of the founders of the Roxburghe Club.
From the collection of G. Scott Clemons.
