Abstract:

Aldus Manutius belongs to that select group of historical figures whose name has become an adjective. From the spring of 1495 the Aldine Press undertook a vast and novel programme of making the written remains of Greek Antiquity widely and systematically available to the scholarly public of Renaissance Europe. Besides this, Aldus printed many Latin and Italian texts in cheaper formats in the famous Aldine italic. This new study introduces 'the prince of printers' under his various aspects, as scholar and businessman, editor and typographer, in commemoration of the quincentenary of his first publication. The beautifully reproduced illustrations are drawn largely from Aldines in the unrivalled collections of The British Library.
