Prisciani Grammatici Caesariensis Libri Omnes.
Venice: Aldus Manutius and Andrea Torresani,
Marco Foscarini (1696–1763) was the 117th and fourth-last Doge of Venice, 1762–1763, whose reign was cut short by his deteriorating health and death. A wealthy Venetian patrician and member of the Council of Ten, he had collected a large library for decades, including many editions from the Aldine Press. He had his books rebound in contemporary style, stamped in gilt with his arms; this binding of tan calf is typical of the covering materials.
