About This Item

27 pages with facsimiles. Quarto (11" x 8 1/2") bound in original publisher's wrappers. Translated with notes by Edward F Tuttle. First edition. Andrea Calvo, the publisher and putative translator of these Nove, seems to have been a man intent on new developments in more than one area. Besides spreading "news" of the trans-Atlantic geographic discoveries, Calvo was also in the forefront of diffusing works on the transalpine Reformation in Italy. Only months after the Nove appeared andrea's promising career as a publisher was cut short as he fled Milan to escape ducal edicts, backed by capital penalties, which aimed at crushing Reformist literature and its emissaries (March 1523). Condition:  Spine sunned else a better than very good copy.
