“Polybii Historiarum Libri Qvinque in latinam con versi linguam, Nicolao Perotto Interprete”

Wonderful full parchment binding deriving from a 15th-century manuscript/antiphonary with a beautiful illuminated “I”.
Size: 17 x 10 cm.
cc. 225 + 1 c. of colophon and, on the back, large typographic brand different from the one on the title page. Very elegant italic font. Dedication of Perottus (Niccolò Perotti) to Pope Nicholas V. First, rather rare Giunti edition, missing in Adams, Brunet, Renouard " Giunti ".

This copy is particularly interesting as it is rich in annotations (not only are there annotations on each page written by a coeval hand, but also a loose handwritten sheet and other annotations on the first and last endpapers).

In good overall condition.

"Delle Storie di Polibio" (206 BC – 124 BC), perhaps the culmination of ancient historiography for the rigour in the investigation of sources, only the first five books have survived, as well as Byzantine extracts from other books. Polybius outlines a great picture of the Punic wars between Rome and Carthage; the books that have survived cover the events until 216 BC. The translator Niccolò Perotto (1429-1480), a humanist native of Fano, was trained in Mantua and Ferrara with Vittorino da Feltre and Guarino da Verona.
