La stampa a Viterbo "1488"-1800 : Catalogo descrittivo : Traduzione italiana a cura di Jolanda Galigani (Biblioteca di bibliografia Italiana, 41)

Florence, Leo S. Olschki, 1963
(25.5 cm), 218 pp., 9 plates. Bound in green buckram, a collector’s binding. - 545 editions are described (1 incunable, 30 cinquecentine). The great majority have been examined by the author, but fifty have proved untraceable and are described from notices of earlier bibliographers. Rhodes and the Catalogue of books printed in the XVth century now in the British Museum (VII, p.lxxxvi) argue that the date “1488” in Maurus Servius Honoratus, De finalibus ([Printer of Servius, “De ultimis syllabis”, for Franciscus Octavius de Fano], 12 January) must be a misprint for “1478”; see, however, Attilio Carosi, Librai cartai e tipografi in Viterbo e nella provincia del patrimonio di S. Pietro in Tuscia nel secoli XV e XVI (Viterbo 1988), pp.23-27, who argues for the date as printed. Denis Reidy, “Bibliography of the published works of Dennis E. Rhodes” in The Italian Book, 1465-1800: Studies presented to Dennis E. Rhodes on his 70th Birthday (London 1993), no. 118. Only copies without illustrations are obtainable from the publisher, price €56 (“Testo mancante. Siamo spiacenti. Tranne qualche eccezione, tutti i volumi fino al 1990 non dispongono del testo illustrativo”; www.olschki.it/libro/9788822219992). ¶ Very good copy.
