Quintilianus cum commento. [fol. 3:] Raphaelis Regii in deprauationes oratoriæ Quintiliani institutionis annotationes.
12 May 1506 - large and small criblé initials, text printed with commentary mostly in the fore-margins but sometimes surrounding, lacks the final blank, some worming in the final leaves with loss of text, several holes in first leaf not affecting text, 2 leaves (giii-iv) heavily browned, water-staining emanating from the lower inner corner in the second half of the book, ff. [201, of 202], folio, contemporary blind stamped calf backed beech boards, original clasps and catches, the wood wormed a bit, lower board (well) glued together where sometime vertically split, lower board defective at corner, vestiges of rear pastedown of an MS on vellum, front paste down present, being the edge of a vellum skin reaching approximately half way across the board, bookplate upon it the bookplate of Thomas Ashby Junr. Probably printed in Venice by Albertino da Lessona and his brothers: see D. E. Rhodes, Silent Printers. Anonymous printing at Venice in the sixteenth century, p. 211-212. The contribution of Raphael Regius reinforces this attribution. A scarce printing, CNCE recording a dozen copies only in Italy, WorldCat adding 3 in the US, and the BL copy the only one in COPAC. See M. Winterbottom, 1999. "In praise of Raphael Regius" in Siegmar Döpp (editor), Antike Rhetorik und ihre Rezeption. Symposion zu Ehren von Professor Dr. Carl Joachim Classen. (Stuttgart: Steiner). The bookplate is that of Thomas Ashby (1874–1931), the archaeologist. It has a pencil inscription recording the purchase of the book at a sale, presumably in Rome, in 1906. (CNCE 59363)
