351 pp. Aldus Manutius (1455-1515) was the greatest printer of the Italian Renaissance. Active in Venice from 1494 through his death in 1515, Aldus was the first to print the canon of Greek classics, the first to print in italic type, and the first to publish books in a portable format, thereby making great literature available to a mass audience for the first time in history. In commemoration of the quincentennial of his death, the exhibition catalogue explores each of these "firsts," and considers the enduring influence of Aldus Manutius on the way in which we capture, preserve and transmit knowledge to this day. More than 140 books published by the Aldine Press, mostly from private collections and not previously exhibited, were selected by G. Scott Clemons, a private collector of the Aldine Press and president of the Grolier Club, and H. George Fletcher, retired curator of rare books at the Morgan Library and New York Public Library. designed by Jerry Kelly, typeset in a new version of the seminal Aldine roman typeface of 1495, interpreted by Jerry Kelly. Nearly 150 illustrations in full color. Preface, two essays on Aldus by H. George Fletcher, followed by detailed descriptions of the 141 items on show at the Grolier Club, 25 February-25 April, 2015. Contents include essays, a revised and expanded catalogue, bibliography, and indices. Substantively advances the scope of the exhibition, with new scholarship, including the publication of a long-unlocated and exceedingly rare Aldine Virgil, printed on blue paper, that belonged to Jean Grolier.
