The Greek Editions of Aldus Manutius and his Greek Collaborators was first published in Greek in 2015, in order to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the death of the Venetian printer. A succinct introduction on the pioneers of Renaissance humanism in Crete is followed by a thorough presentation of the graphic aspect of Aldus's Greek editions, that is, initials and headpieces as well as different families of typeface and other features. The second part of the book consists of a catalogue and commentary of all his Greek editions in chronological order. The comments focus on the main subject of each work, its previous editions in Greek or in Latin translation, if any, and on the Prefaces written by Aldus. With an Introduction by Stepanos Kaklamanis. Illustrated in color. New.
