PRINTED ON BLUE PAPER. Illustrated by the greatest Venetian artists of the time. 'Questa edizione, e per ciò ch'essa contiene, e per la diligenza somma con cui è stata fatta, e per gli ornamenti, e pe' caratteri, e per la correzione dovrà sempre tenersi in grandissima stima; e già n'è indubitata prova la difficoltà di rinvenirne gli esemplari'.
