HERESBACHIO, CONRAD; DIUNO, ANDREA
Homeri Poetarum Omnium Principus Ilias, Andrea Diuno Iustiopolitao Interprette, Ad Verbu Translata. Heroditi Halicar Nassei Libellus, Homeri Vita Fidelissime Continens, Conrado Heresbachio Interprete. Cum Indici Copiosissimo
Apud d. Iacob a' Burgofrancho (Giacomo Pocatela), Venetiis. 1537, 1st Edition. No Binding. In three parts (complete). In Latin throughout. The three parts are preceded by a life of Homer by Conrad Heresbach. This is also the first published translation by Andrea Diuno. First part is the Iliad; the second is the Odyssey together with the "Trachomyomachia, id est, Ranatrum & Murium pugna" (the Battle between the mice and the frogs), together with the Hymns of the Gods (Hymni Deorum). The book is in need of professional rebinding and repair. Page 33 of the Iliad to page 73 of the Iliad and the last chapter of the Iliad (XXIII) to page 18 of the Odyssey are loose but complete and entire. Published by Giacomo Pocatela (also known as Iacob or Jacob a Burgofrancho as a business name). Pocatela, on moving to Venice, dropped his initial publishing preference for medical and scientific books for vernacular and classical texts (of which this is one). Pocatelo was once of the first printers to form a network. He had his own printing press and printed for other publishers other than his own brand. This book was published in 1537 (M. D. XXXVII) the year before his death. The front cover of the book is missing. The paper cover remains (albeit in a wretched state) on the spine and the back. The title page is decorated with woodcuts in which is incorporated the publisher's device framed by cupids. The back leaf has the publisher's colophon [Venetiis, Apud d. Iacob A Burgofrancho. M. D. XXXVII Mense Martio (1537 in the month of March)]. The verso side has the publisher's device / brand: the initials IADPBF (or IADPBF) imposed on a cross above a star within a shield, embraced by two muse, above which is the legend 'Sustine et Abstine' and below in Greek, 'Anexoy kai Aiiexoy'. This colophon and device also appear at the end of the 'Iliad'. The paper trims are much damaged at the bottom right corner. However, this damage does not interfere in anyway with the facility of use or the text-bodies. The pages have publisher marks and initials as was usual. There are storage, user marks and stains to many pages. Some pages also have annotations by previous owners (of some age). The year the book was published was also the year the Venetian State imposed very heavy fines for the use of poor paper quality (such was the importance of printing to Venice at the time). Consequently, the paper here is robust, flexible, healthy, sure. Despite the irascibility and insecurity of the binding the book is secure and resolute. The spine has a label affixed with the title inscribed. The ink of the printing is clear, unfaded, strong and assured. The printing is in cursive characters. The thread of the binding is intact and stoic. The book, despite its damage, is an exciting book to hold, to look at, to read, and whose pages when turned would bring shivers of delight to any bibliophile. fk. Poor/No Jacket.
