About This Item

[Colophon on Y7v:] Venice: In Aedibus Aldi, Et Andreae Soceri, November 1513 [but dated May 1517 on K8r]., 1517. folio. ff. 80 (the last blank), cols. 1436, [1 leaf]. italic letter. text in double columns. initial spaces with guide letters. Aldine woodcut anchor device on title, verso of K8 & verso of last leaf. modern vellum (a few small inconsequential wormholes in outer gatherings, occasional marginal stains & soiling & several minor marginal repairs; overall a nice copy with good margins). the Hopetoun copy with engraved armorial bookplate. several early ms. notes, one dated 1523, on 2 blanks at end. Second Enlarged Aldine Edition, Second Issue (first: 1499) of this encyclopedic work by the celebrated Italian humanist. Perotti’s commentary on Book I of Martial’s epigrams presents an exhaustive discussion of the etymology, formation, and derivatives of classical Latin words and much information respecting the culture of ancient Rome. Several editions of the work are cited in Simon’s bibliography of wine books because of the various references made in the text to wine, viticulture and drunkenness. The second Aldine edition was the first to incorporate Varro’s De lingua latina and De analogia, Sextus Pompeius’s Festi…fragmenta, and Nonius Marcellus’s Compendia. This second issue is dated ‘May 1517’ at the bottom of col. 1054 (misnumbered 1064). Perotti was one of a number of prominent scholars employed by Pope Nicholas V in the translation of Greek texts. In 1455 he became a papal secretary, and in 1458 Archbishop of Siponto. He served as papal governor in Viterbo (1464-9), Spoleto (1471-2), and Perugia (1474-7). Renouard I pp. 151-52 (no. 9.) & p. 190 (no. 9.). Adams P721. BM STC Italian p. 499. cfSimon, Bibliotheca Bacchica, 494-96..
