Venice: Francesco Marcolini, June 1551. 112, [7] ff, lacking final black). 19th cent. calf backed boards and marbled paper, spine gilt, paper label with number top of the spine, edges painted yellow (title of the first books stained, title of the second frayed at the bottom corner with some loss of paper but without loss of text, some foxing). The first edition of both parts. A list of Italian authors and their works, mostly contemporary including the author himself.“The first bibliography in a vernacular and the first attempt to describe books in Italian, with the special section of printed music. In continuation, “La seconda libraria”, issued the following year, is somewhat marred by the inclusion of few fictitious titles” (Breslauer & Folter). Both volume printed using (mostly) beautiful but different Italic types by two major 16th century Venetian printers: Gabriele Giolito de' Ferrari and Francesco Marcolini. The book is not in its first binding with margins cut little close (13 cm), but without shaving of the text and overall good copy. Adams D-819, D-822; Fumagalli 604; Breslauer & Folter 18.
