Description

Drawing heavily on the works of Caesar, Lelio Brancaccio (1560–1637) is the author or this treatise on offensive and defensive military strategy. In April 1571, in recognition of his services to Rome, Emperor Maximilian II bestowed upon Paulus Manutius a knighthood of the Holy Roman Empire, and granted him a charge of arms that incorporated the Aldine dolphin and anchor device. Aldus the Younger continued to use this device on occasion, embellishing it here with a border of cherubs and, appropriately, books.
