Catalogue Note

The first edition of Filippo Beroaldo's extensive commentary, one of many that he wrote to accompany various classical works, which he also used for his lectures at the University of Bologna. He had a close relationship with the printer, Benedetto Faelli da Ettore, who printed many of his works and commentaries. Faelli started in the book trade as a bookseller, often in association with other printers, and this is the first recorded publication from his own workshop; he continued printing well into the sixteenth century and was Bologna's most prolific printer at the time.
