Description

Renouard built on the work of his predecessors, while using his own collection and those of correspondents to write this definitive edition of the bibliography of the Aldine Press. The work was first published in 1803 in two volumes (with a supplement printed in 1812), the three together shown here in contemporary paper wrappers.

A second edition was published in 1825, shown here in a large-paper copy with a facsimile of the trial sheet of the polyglot Bible unfolded. Renouard’s bibliography is invaluable for added material such as this.

The third edition of 1834,with the engraving of Aldus on the frontispiece, remains the definitive bibliography of the Aldine Press to this day.
