¶ Cicero (1480) and Festus (1478?)

June 23, 2017

1478, 1480

The following titles are bound together:

[1] Cicero, Marcus Tullius. De officiis. Venice: Filippo di Pietro, 8 May 1480.

Reference: ISTC (ic00589000).

Digital version: BSB.

[2] Festus, Sextus Pompeius. De verborum significatione. [Venice: printer of Pomponius Mela, c. 1478.]

The Sotheby catalogue does not specify the edition, and MS catalogue (2) records it as “c. 1480”; we believe this is the most likely candidate.

Reference: ISTC (if00145000).

Digital version: BSB.
