Lot Details
Haec insunt in hoc libro... de coelesti hierarchia, text in modern Greek, printer's device at end, with the 2 blank leaves, some soiling and minor worming, margins of a1 and g8 repaired, touching a few letters, early annotation in red ink, Greek inscriptions on title, contemporary brown morocco, stamped in blind, rather worn, ties missing [Adams D519], 8vo, [Florence], Phillip Giunta, 1516


  • First published in Latin in 1502, this is the first edition in the original Greek. It is referred to as modern Greek since the text dates from about the sixth century AD, roughly when ancient Greek is regarded as changing to the medieval (or modern) language. We are much obliged to Leonora Navari for her help in the cataloguing of this lot.
