Author Perotti, Niccolo (1430-1480)
Title CORNUCOPIAE sive Linguae Latinae Commentarii
PlacePub Basel (Switzerland)
Publisher Andream Cartandrum (ie Cratander)
Date 1521
Illustrations With Cratander's large colophon printer's mark at end & full page border of putti at play on the second titlepage.
Description Folio contemporary calf spine gilt on 5 raised bands (some minor repairs to spine and lower compartment split at lower hinge/2 leather holes repaired) LACKS leaves 1-8 including titlepage, preliminaries, & index up to "aricia" on leaf 9. 9-79pp +1436 Columns (ie 718pp). Some leaves with marginal damp mark never touching text & a few minor tears or paper faults & approx. 20 early paper repairs with a few obscuring text but mostly just marginal. One column has a few drops of candle wax. As expected from Cratander, the margins are wide and the nice italic type well centered but 2 pages are slightly over inked and thus have ink smudges. *An early edition of this humanist reference work printed in italic columns by the famous humanist printer at a time when Basel was in the fore front of such printing. These lexicographical studies on the first book of Martial’s Epigrams followed by similar works by other authors were a virtual encyclopedia of Latin words.
