Condition Report

Elegant first edition of Giolito. The work follows the famous work of Cornelio Nepote "De Viris illustribus". This work came to us in the manuscripts not by the name of Cornelio Nepote, but with that of Emilio Probo, who appears as a contemporary of Emperor Theodosius, to whom the work is dedicated. This misunderstanding was already revealed by the sixteenth-century publishers.
