Sandy Hook: Chiswick, 1985. 9 x 13. xiv, 115 pages plus 4 original leaves. 46 illustrations in the text. Red cloth gilt, matching slipcase (few waterspots on case). Ink notation on blank in Viv Cohen's hand "4 leaves." Fine. Item #18126
One of 20 copies (of 200) with especially fine leaves. The Aristotle leaf has an ornamental head piece, 7-line ornamented initial, and one smaller initial. The Septuagint leaf in this copy bears '"shaped" printing on recto ; verso is a chapter opening with intrelac headpiece and 11-line initial both printed in red. The four original Aldine leaves bring together all of Aldus' Greek type, providing a substantial opportunity for comparing them. An important study, beautifully produced by Stephen Harvard & Stinehour Press.
