Condition Report

Very rare edition. Important work on the pottery of ancient Rome, edited by Charles Estienne. In his preface Estiennne, disciple and friend of the author, tells the reader that not all young students could understand De Baif's work.; therefore, when he heard this, De Baif gave his friend permission to make a summary of his book. Typographical rarity: Nicole Paris, after graduating in art in Paris in 1529, began teaching and settled in Troyes around 1542: opened his typography near the Abbey of La Rivour on request of Abbot Jean de Luxembourg. He printed very few books; the beautiful printer's mark, a child climbing on a palm tree with the motto taken from the Song of Songs. See. Notice of the Bibliothèque Nationale: FRBNF30046964.
